    Default Andrew's update (05warrior)



    He's in Tennessee and his transmission just blew the hell up. He only has 4th gear. Tow truck is coming to pick him up and take his wife and him to a hotel for the evening then to a tranny shop tomorrow. Anyone from TN able to lend a hand advice or wrench wise?

    Arghh, being a man of my word, and seeing that Andrew has tested my friendability, I will go ahead and say, that if anyone has a working part that he can use, I will drive it down to him so we can get his rig rolling again. He is on a time schedule and has to get from Virginia to Texas and then to Missouri after dropping off his household goods and old lady by the 17th I think.

    So, I told him I had him covered between Virginia and Tennessee, and I see that he opted to blow his crap up in the longest fricken state to drive through in the world, but I will make the drive as soon as I get a part if we can find one.

    Do we know what he blew up? I can help by getting him the needed parts at my cost, if I can.

    All that's good if 4th gear. That's all we'll know until tomorrow. I may have found a tranny, but don't know if Andrew's is internal/external slave.

    He is 492 miles away from Belvoir, in Tennessee where 81 and 40 meet. He said about 20 miles out of Knoxville.

    google map

    If he needs a new tranny, I will go down after I clear it with my boss at home and boss at work, in that order

    I can pass his number to you via pm and see if you can talk with him, you may have a better understanding of it than I did, I just said "so your shit blew up" and that was about as technical as I get.

    Just got into a hotel. As far as I know I've got no gears, Called a transmission guy while waiting for the cop to show up to block traffic and he said that he normally has same day or next day turnaround. Hopefully He'll be able to perform like he said he would. I'll let everyone know what's goin on as soon as i find anything out.

    We have feelers out for the transmission. Keep us posted, we may be able to get one down there faster if the ones we have been checking on come through.
