Sounds like we are all keeping pretty busy. I got the well pump changed out. When I primed it, I discovered that both 3/4" gate valves in the discharge line do not hold. Digging through my stuff today and found a new lever handle valve that I can replace one of them with. Will get that done today.

What happened to the drive-shaft?

Looks like we left there at a good time. Humidity was starting to come up and the rainy season seems to be hitting. All of the surveillance cameras that we have down there are always going off due to the rain.

Had a factory driveshaft in the truck, took it for a tune after the engine/transmission swap. Said, "2nd gear pulls." (Stock driveshaft critical speed is 92 mph) Around 116 mph my driveshaft came apart, he did several 3rd gear pulls. Did a lot of damage and the SOB stuck it to me, never finished the tune I paid for. Luckily, I had built a DS loop, or it would have been way worse.

Do you know this guy? I wouldn't have paid him a dime. I think he is responsible for ALL the damages he caused. Unless you signed something releasing him from any damage claims?

I let a guy borrow my car hauler during the winter. He exploded the winch, an older model American made one. I am pretty sure that he tried to winch a car up on it that was frozen to the ground. He brought me a used one that he has to replace it with. Only the one he brought is no where near a "direct replacement", so when it warms up I have to fab up some new mounting plates to get it in the winch box. What is it with people that borrow your shit, break it, then just forget about it? Seems like he would have had the new-used one installed and working when he brought the stinkin trailer back. He said that he hasn't had time to get to it. Bullshit I tell ya, bullshit.
