    What a great name for a sailboat.:rofl

    If this wasn't the only home my Mom has known since '85, and my Daughter didn't have such a sentimental attachment to it, I would love to live in a condo/townhouse.
    So long as I have a secure garage to store my stuff.:evil
    Maybe after Mom has to go to a 24hr care facility.:deal

    Nevermind. I figured it out. There are two screws that hold the brake line to the axle with a bracket. I remember when I installed it that these go through the axle tube, essentially making a hole. The oil appears to be leaking out through there.

    And, you're right in that it must be getting hot because the oil is low. I'll clean it up, RTV the holes and refill it. Just not tonight.

    Good thing the weather will be warmer tomorrow. I can take the bike.

    I went in to the class with an open mind, assuming I didn't know jack about riding. The instructor was constantly telling at me to tighten up my knees, turn my head, relax my hands, etc... It was like having a personal trainer.

    The class really is great for learning good habits, pointing out common mistakes and making you a better, more aware and cautious rider. I could have just jumped on my bike, but I'm glad I took the class. The one in Fort Smith was much cheaper than the ones they have here and my instructor was great.

    simple fixes, are good fixes!

    I still have your spring compressors by the way, they have been living in the back of my Yota, with lots of other tools and stuff.

    swing by and get them, or I will bring them over to you whenever you want.

    Yep. Like you though, just tired of fixing stuff.

    Lol. Eventually I will need to get those compressors back. I need to switch my springs on the rear end as the Jeep is starting to lean to the right side. :lol3
