Well here is the bad news. I got down underneath and found my way to the control shaft and the nut I need to loosen. But the nut and the bolt it tightens look fairly rusty. I gave it a little pressure but it didn’t want to move. If I horse it I’m going to snap that thing.
Any way to proceed forward with the assumption that things have stayed put underneath throughout this whole thing or this has got to be step one?
If not this isn’t the end of the world. The truck has an appointment in two weeks to go into the shop to fix a leaking rear engine seal, they need to drop the transmission anyway. I can just leave this for them to fix, and we can make it two weeks popping the battery.
Doesn’t the solenoid releasing when I pop the negative terminal mean it’s working fine?
Understood, will do.
Nothing exciting to report. Today was all about finishing off all this interior work before it goes back into the shop tomorrow. I finished everything I wanted to, but I’m done for the night. Any issue right now has a workaround, so I’ll get back into this once I get the car back. Again, I really appreciate all the time and help!
Brought the truck back into the shop this morning, wife drove it and I drove my car. Wife parks the truck, key came right out. We both just stood there laughing...
You do now realize that your wife has been fu(king with you and the key fiasco the whole time. If she knows about manifolds, she knows enough to just barely loosen electrical connectors to drive YOU nuts and then slyly reconnect them at will to further make you look foolish when she is in command and control of the rig.Brought the truck back into the shop this morning, wife drove it and I drove my car.
