Jack hour from my town! We just moved here 6 months ago. I did try the dot3 trick. Still no go. Let it run 30 mins she's old like me needs some time to get all the joints moving....... We already have out the old trans just working our way slowly but surely. Thank for everything.

Hi Jack,

Many thanks for the tip, I'll give it a whirl and see how we go. I've been under there today cleaning all the crud off and trying to get an I.D on the axle but without success. 

I put some card under last night and there's not been any drips overnight. Hope It's not all gone !!

Jack, you wrote:
"Sorry Don, but that type of video is not my cup of tea. Eye strain and a head ache. I prefer real time videos that do not jump around.Just my two cents worth."

Please do not apologize Sir, obviously, you are in enough pain to reach out to a perfect stranger for help. While I am not a doctor or a psychiatrist I have done a lttle research into the nature of your complaint. The video in question has been seen by millions of people over the past five years and you are the only known case to have a complaint so you have good cause to be concerned. The first thing that comes to mind is you should have your eyes checked for the cause of eye strain. If your eyes check out good then you would need to see a psychiatrist for the cause of the head aches. I am told it may be a case of clinical depression coupled with an inability to sit quietly in a room, alone. I hope this is some help to you Jack.
