Just wait till you see it now. The dunes are definitely moving north.
SWEEET!
In a couple more decades us northerners will only have to drive to Kansas to dune!  ;D
Wish I could make this one, but my handlers say I have been absent from the chain gang past the allowable limit for the year as well.
I expect pictures and stories of authentic battle damage! Except Mitch... He got it done last run  ;)
more like a couple centuries.

Depends on how I feel by then.

Well the fickle finger of fate strikes again. Had the car almost together last night, had it running but found a water leak and the new S4 would not shift into 3&4.  Will have to tear it all out today and start over. 




















Ok I gott he trans and engine back out and the trans tore down.  Found out in our haste that we had put the first and second gear dog ring on backwards.  Believe me when I say this S4 PBS is very easy to work on, no settings to worry about but you have to get it all back together like the boys at Weddle planed it.  It's all back together and installed into the car. Here's a look inside of and S4.




Here is the problem that I found when I opened it back up.


Here is the little ditty that makes the shifts all happen in and S4. With each shift the barrel will rotate about 40 degrees and moves the fork and dog ring.


Here is the what makes this trans what it is.  Notios that the gear stack on this trans is not like what's in your average 2D or bus transaxles First gear is at the pinion gear end and then they put second clear down at the opposite end.  This braker's up the load on the pinion bearing. Then third is opposing first and forth is opposing second. 


All in all this had been a learning experience in trans axle tear down for me.
