Oops, Some Carnage

Had some trouble while wheeling yesterday.







What I didn't get pics of; the hydro-locked motor and swamped interior.

One thing i learned is that is mitsu engines can take on a lot of water and bounce back. Get the water out and dry everything up, Hit the trail again next weekend to test out the new U-joints

The cap came of the u-joint first, just came off and locked the right front wheel in the middle of a flat trail. I backed up a little and it fell out, had little cracks all around it. No big deal, just unlocked that hub and continued. Then got stuck in a deep part of a creek and dug myself in a little too deep. While hooking the strap, the motor started chugging and blowing white smoke, so I shut it off. That was wierd because the exhaust and intake were well above the water level. I guess while I was spinning the wheels trying to get unstuck I must've thrown water into the wheel well exhaust exit, the only thing I can think of. My buddy pulled me backwards out and into a big low-hanging branch, breaking the rear window and denting the roof all the way to the windshield. When I got to a flat spot I tried to start it back up, and it wouldn't turn. Got pulled to the parking lot and turned the motor with a ratchet, stuck. Turned it backwards and it moved(not easily), got a full revolution and then went back the right way, got a full revolution, tried the key and it started. It ran like shit and blew white smoke for 10 minutes then was fine so I drove it an hour and a half home, no probs. The oil looks good, not milky, but I'll change it anyway. Pulled the seats and carpet out and blew out all the electric connectors. So I think it'll be ok

So do you have any clue as to why your breaking shafts like crazy?? I'm assuming your using a D44, and guessing some 35s, that shouldnt be very hard on a D44 much less one with chrome molys.

Well i think alot has to do with the fact that i dont like to give in. if its not happening slow and steady, the right foot goes down hard like race ready. standing the truck straight up with the hope of making it over seldomly works out. GO BIG OR GO HOME!! GOING BIG USUALLY SENDS ME HOME..
