Re: American Adventurist So Cal Mountain Rendevous Oct 2013
Well, it turns out the Great Pumpkin couldn't make it up a hill, and that's when Ramsey took a look at the front end and determined one of the hubs wasn't engaging. So, with some basic tools, (and the group waiting) he disassembled the automatic hub, only to discover it was useless. The thing hadn't been exercised properly and was now only adding more weight to SM. I continued on the trail in 2.25 wheel drive. Someone has video of the Power Wagon pulling it up a nasty hill.
THEN, after the ride and we were air-ing up, someone noticed my sway bar had relocated itself into my spring! Ramsey was there again to assist in getting it unjammed / removed. (Cool! more weight gone!)
Gonna go with Warn Premier manual hubs next.
