Default Will the pain ever stop?

I've had the worst season in history built new motors relocated everything, you know how that goes....waited for ever for my EMI dry stacks missed the 4th waiting for them. Get it all going before SOTW and ran all weekend had a small oil leak. Think I fixed it last week,hooked up Sunday hit the bearing buddies with the grease gun pulled it 3 miles and tore up a spindle!!!! I dont lose bearings you can fix that the dang thing self destructs, start over!!!What do you think the chance is that I can get 2 new axels and get them installed before the weekend??Chit looks like I ride shot gun on the fun run this weekend.

Don,

If you need it, you can use my trailer; the boat is in rack storage anyhow. It's set up for a 29' Powerquest, straight V, no step. Should be close enough for your 31 Sonic, I would think.

Let me know and we can work out a way to get it to you....

- Mike

I had basically the same problem on Thursday before the Spring OPBA Poker Run. I had some work down two years ago by "Two Brothers" trailers/repairs down in Englewood, called them Thurday afternoon, and they said bring it in first thing in the morning. They replaced two axles (the third was replaced two years ago) and four sets of bearings and had me on the road before eleven am. Saved my azz.

Bud, I'm not using it - the boat is in rack storage. Just say the word, I'll meet you in Lansing or something. Just have a 2 5/8 ball and you're good to go.

I know how much you've been waiting for this trip, I'd hate to see you leave the Exxon Valdez, um, I mean the Sonic at home.

Get 'r Done Dyno - summer is only here for a little while. I've got a good hyd. jack and some stands if you need extras. Probably a biotch of a job with the boat on. Be safe not sorry.

Sounds like a Rocket Trailer. Absolute junk if so.
