Home from the hospital
« on: December 16, 2017, 10:01:48 AM »
The motorhome that is.  It spent a month at Florida PowerTrain in Tampa.  I told them there was no hurry.  Had the DANA 80 rear axle rebuilt.  New ring, pinion, pinion bearings, carrier bearings and pinion seal.  Has been making noise for several years and many miles.  I changed the rear axle oil and found metal chips in the oil.  One carrier bearing's rollers were full of pits.  111215 miles.  Not too bad a price; $1297.72 total.  I was expecting around $3000.00. Nice and quiet now.

If you has spent a month in the hospital getting your rear end rebuilt you wouldn't be nearly as happy.  And the bill would be about 100X that.
