Re: Upset beyond belief
Update on missing bolt. Thanks for all the help with your ideas! I really appreciate it. I had enough last night and went to sleep to get a fresh start this morning. I thought maybe it was against the vent tube, but I didn't see it there either. As mysteriously as the bolt disappeared, it suddenly reappeared. I used a long piece of coat hanger and asked the good lord for help and patience. The second I started to fish it up on the right side of the trans case, my wife came into the garage to ask how it was going? I started to remove the hanger to show her a similar bolt on the workbench and the bolt mysteriously dropped out of an unknown location. I really don't care at this point where it was hiding, all is good and back together. Thanks again for all the help. Steve
I have the Flexible Claw Grabber Pickup Tool Long Reach Curve Spring Grip Tool, and the flexible magnet grabber pickup tool long reach. Very cheap on Amazon, and I have used them many, many times to save me, ie, grab a carb. bleed that I dropped in the carb., grab screws that I dropped in the back of the air gap manifold, grab screws or nuts that are stuck in the headers, --- or even grab socks that fell in back of the washer and dryer. They have put a smile on my face many times through the years and are officially "life savers". I could not see having to live without them.
