When posted to Alert, Inuvik or to any other place for 183 days or less (unaccompanied), countdown was always expressed as say 182 and a wakee. When you got down to single digits -- you knew you were going home. I have heard it expressed as a sleep, a bag drag and a few other oddities. What it boils down to is a period of less than a day -- usually when you wake up on flight day you only have a few hours before the freedom bird arrived and then leaves with you butt in a canvas sling seat :{_}: Even after 25 years of being retired from the military - I still have not lost the lingo -- becomes part of who you are.

Today we got a wakee left ! We is leaving tomorrow afternoon right after my daughters appointment at the pain clinic.

I'd like to bring a tractor to pull the tranny. I believe It needs a front and/or rear input shaft bearing.

Thanks,
Gary



Cecil,

I may not bring the cub for the tranny repair. I was told that most likely I need countershaft bearings to repair my issue. I have now also been told it could be something else. I am to the point that if someone has a good tranny they want to part with in the $75 to $90 dollar range, I have asked them to contact me. I will drop close to that in a handfull of bearings without knowing if it's the right fix until I bolt it back on the tractor. I'd rather go for the swap out knowing a good tranny is going back in rather than asking for people's time to do this not knowing the outcome. I'll keep you posted. Gary

Gary, the seals and gaskets are more than $100. I have been doing my tranny in baby steps... possibly so I wouldn't know how much it costs! From what I have seen of a lot of transmissions there is or was water in mix. Cub bearings will probably 'work' forever after a water/oil mix, but I replace em when I have it apart.

Interesting bit about water and bearings:

Larry,

Thanks for all the info. Just the two bearings for the input or countershaft are rather pricy. Add the gasket kit and that's why I think finding a tight replacement tranny is the way to go. If I have my hands on a tranny or at least a good countershaft by fri, I pull the cub up to Cecils and go from there. There's no way I'm going to have a situation whereas I get help pulling a tranny just to find out there's more parts than it's worth and just stuffing it back on because of that. That would be a waste of help that could have been used elsewhere.
