Don't forget the gear lube!!!!

Post by Laguna Budman on Thu Feb 09, 2012 7:11 pm

Took her out on a maiden voyage and didn't go so well. The one thing I forgot to check was gear lube. It was a blasted, painted, fresh rebuilt new ring and pinion, bearings, seals axles...Damnit Head Bang Had another one sitting around so rebuilt it and put in yesterday, so ready to go again. Notice the gear lube in the pic under the new one.

And I thought I was the only one that did stuff like that. When I put the new engine in mine I forgot to hook up the oil pressure line to the gauge. Didnt take long to remember after it started! affraid

My car fell off a jack stand because I forgot to check the shifter when putting back the steering column. When I started the car the linkage was not lined up properly underneath & she went into drive-need a new backing plate for the right front. Turd happens.

Since the rear end is on jack stands with the cover off, I like to go ahead and dump the 2 quarts of lube in before installing the cover, therefore just stick it in and go.
