I literally just finished moving this week, it was a long 800 some odd miles on the road, about a hunfred miles in, I blew a tranny line, didnt
realize it until I burned up overdrive and drive.
So it was me and the whole family, in the suburban, with the trailer in tow, the kids mom looks at me and says, what are we gonna do?
I calmly put it in manual second, and began driving at 45 mph, for 700 somthing miles, it took a long time, about 2 full days, as I had to now stay
off the interstate, and take state roads and county roads.
So a 1 day ride turned into a family cross country trip, and we got to see a lot of sites on our leisurely 45 mph road trip.
So, does anyone in Texas know where to find a 700R4 transmission for a good price? I would have just gone to pick apart back in Indiana to get one, do
you guys have pick apart orr a similar place where I can take it off myself, thus saving a lot of money?
Also , Texas, you are funny to me, I have never heard of "paddlin papers" before. My son had gotten into trouble his last week in indiana, his last
day he suspended for starting a fight, and then replied to the principal "I dont care".
So his mother and I had to go and pick him up. So when we were refistering him for school, we signed the papers, and checked the yes you may paddle my
son box. To which he replied, bless his little heart, " why would you check yes!!??".
Lol, so I told him the truth of it, "well if you were controlling yourself correctly, this woukdnt be necessary now woukd it?".
He has had a week of perfect school behavior so far, I guess the yes box has had the desired effect.
TEXAS, why didnt I come to you sooner?
