yuh remember when yuh meet me christmas eve, chaguanas.
well the car was working good for two days and after i start to hear a noise coming from the axles.
i call the mechanic and he tell me the car too low and the axle straining. he tell me to see if i get original shocks and see if the noise gone.
i went in the bamboo and i get a pair of levin front shocks. i install dem. the noise ease up.
i drive the car for one day when both front wheels start to lock up like i mashing real hard brakes.
i would pull out in 1st gear and coast on 2nd and 3rd, but when i leggo the ex the wheels locking. also the first gear was jumping out and making a grating sound.
i try calling the mechnic back but i wasn't getting thru with him.
i then decided to check mih neighbour BIRD the mechanic. he drive the car and he getting the same problem. bird ask me if the gearbox have oil. i tell yeah, because i recently did the conversion and is obvious the mechanic would put fresh gearoil. little that i know. when bird check for gear oil he only get TWO drops. i was like wtf..
bird put in three quarts of oil and drive the car. problem solved.. like if.....
if yuh see the long trail of oil on the road leaking from the box. it was leaking from some hole which a bolt was missing. not one hole but three. bird put bolts on all three and put in a quart of oil... test drive it again, car working normal. only thing first gear giving trouble to go in. it still grating and jumping out. bird tell me most likely the synchromesh for 1st and 2nd gear gone, to see if i get a replacement set of synchromesh.he say i could still drive the car. well the car work for three days till sometime while cruising on the highway i started to hear a sqealing sound anytime i leggo the ex peddal. and when i mash the clutch it gets louder and annoying. it real loud. i then decided to park up the car. i eventually take out the box but i ain't scrap it down. i need to get some time and carry the box by someone who could repair it.
btw yuh know anybody..
