So hey , just putting it out there partsgeek has timkens around 318 I replaced both of mine at different times tho. Studs come with themQuick question, are Timken wheel bearings worth the price? I'm looking on 1aauto, I can get the TRQ pair for $365, or $730 for the Timken pair. Only one is really bad, but the other is following so I want to just do them both if I ever get my truck back from the trans shop... Also are there any other brands I should look at like Moog, Yukon, SKF or Motorcraft?
Sounds like you just have a warren diesel tranny to meFella's I'm having issues with the ol' 6.0. I don't know what the deal is. I posted about that issue a few weeks ago. Took it to the lake this weekend and it would do something funky while crusing down the highway. Almost like it was searching for a gear or bumping in and out of overdrive? No check engine light. No codes. Fluid is good. Any ideas?
It's done, we laid him to rest today. His friend have been telling me why the back tires on all our trucks are pretty thin. Heard a story of him having to pull my 6.0 over on the way home and peel the rubber out of the fender well. The fairly new back tires on the Ranger are awful thin and the right rear on the F150 is a slick. Awhile back I pointed out the tires on the Ranger and he came up with "maybe they're over inflated dad" Yeah right. So anyway the funeral director knew his friends wanted to do some honorary burnout for Jack so he parked the kids doing it at the bottom so they could get out. After I finished his service His friends got in their trucks while we stood on the hill and watched. They did him proud, I'll post some pics if I can of the road in front of the cemetery. They came back and hung around in the cold as Jack was lowered in the ground, they just didn't want to go. The vault company made a camo cover on the top with a set of wrenches making a cross. Before they put that on I laid some wildflowers on his coffin and his friends followed suit.
His entire diesel class and many other students came yesterday along with 4H friends, we probably had at least 50 people in his showing at one time. Nobody cared about the wu flu. I was so touched by the number of friends, neighbors and family that turned out. They want to keep Jack's 4th of July BBQ and 4wheeler party going. They want me to ride with them. I told them yeah but don't expect me to ride like he did, hell I'm an old man not a 17 yr old. There are pics and a shortened video on my intagram and FB. After we left the cemetery there was a deputy sitting in the driveway. I turned around and came back to talk with him. I told him sorry/not sorry. They knew who we were there for and had helped last weekend in the search. He said he didn't know anything he just stopped in town because he had cell signal there. That was his story and he was sticking to it. So after talking with him he went toward the upper exit and I went to the lower one. Had my oldest son with me and I said let's do this. I held the brakes and hit the gas till the turbo spooled and took off leaving my own marks for him. Sure gonna miss him but we sent him out in a way he'd have been proud of. Here's a couple of pics, it was nice to be able to laugh a little today.
Dang man, I been hesitant to use the site since the new layout. I come back and ready this terrible news! Sincerely my prayers and condolences to you and your family sir. I pray for God's comfort and peace during this time for you all.Thanks to all you guys for your prayers and words this week, that got me thru this. Hardest thing I ever faced, The other thing that kept me going is knowing Jack took his faith to heart, his friends and fiance confirmed that. I went from believing in Jesus to knowing without any doubt this week. I'm gonna miss him forever but knowing I'll see him again I can begin to move on now.
