This is a popular thread on other forums I belong to. It helps stimulate activity on the site and allows sharing the work/ changes we do on our rigs.   :13:

I'll start. I recently bought a '92 Rocky  with a blown head gasket. I replaced the head gasket and once I was sure it was running ok I continued on with other work. Today I pulled the oil pan to clean the lower part of the engine of the gunk from the water in the oil Then drained and refilled diffs, trans, and tcase with fresh gear oil.

That brings the suck. Luckily you have access to replacements.

Took a break from the blue Rocky today. I'm going to focus on the red Rocky with the diesel swap for a while.

Figured out and got my hood latch working properly. No more bungies  to hold it down.

I walked by mine in the shop yesterday...where it continues to take a back seat to the daily drivers.

Reversed the wires to my electric cooling fan and the running warm problem is gone. Never trust somebody else's work!

Low battery today so after jumping it I noticed a good sized oil drip. Drove something else. Checked later and found the oil filter 2 turns loose. WTF?
