I couldn't get a dam wrench on those nuts to save my life tonight. I have one of those goofy ratchets with the open all the way through sockets I'll try tomorrow before he shows. If that don't work the hell with it.

Left side (driver) of the engine,in the bell housing is a hole,covered/plugged,with a rubber boot. That's the access for the tq nuts. I use an impact and swivel socket to remove them.

Haven't touched it been too busy. Sent up and got a set of mounts and some other stuff from Phillip yesterday. I'll work on it this weekend. Getting ready for a colonoscopy in a few hours. Fun times

It went better then I hoped. Now I still have to see a surgeon.

Worst part of a colonoscopy is the prep! Thank goodness it's only every 10 years!

They need the surgeon to get your head out of your ass? Wow! :lol:

Lol that's a good one. Guess my foots in there too since its always in my mouth. I have a moderate case of Diverticulosis. Going to see what the surgeon says. All I know is when it acts up it hurts like hell.

I'm going to finish this Excursion up and then I think I'm going to pull the engine from the Duck and sell it as a roller.

I share your condition. Here's a tip for ya. Eat a high fiber breakfast every day. Cheerios, All Bran, Rolled Oats, etc. AVOID white bread like it's poison. Only eat whole grain breads that are marked 100% whole grain. Those little pockets in your intestine trap crap and can cause diverticulitis which is an inflammation of your intestine. Keep Miralax on hand and take some when you first feel the tingle starting. This works for me but as always YRMV.

That's a bad deal Andy, sorry to hear you have it. My buddy has it too, he has problems every now and then.
