Ok, something we overlooked when we started rebuilding the truck.
Well, we looked, but the way it was sitting and / or the angle we where looking from, did not let us see the extent of the problem.
take a look.. do you see it?
how about now?
not too bad huh?
now thats its out
you can see the damage a bit better
could not really see how bent it was from the bottom or top until we got it out.
Ok now that we have it out, I have a few questions.
Anyone have a replacement part number for this? Anyone know of an after market part that will fit?
Tricks or things that we need to watch out for or need to be done when we reinstall the new one.
There was something bright GREEN, kind of gluey, that was gooped up near the holes... not sure what is was, antifreeze maybe? It reminded me of that Slime stuff my younger kids play with. Or as my elder son said, it looks like infected snot. He wiped it off before I could get a pic.
Thank you all in advacne for any assistance in this matter.
