  6. update: well, i started in late tearing the rear swing arm, and diff apart, the good: axle is in fact new !. the bad: for some reason the oil seals look new ?, but some how gear oil got past the seals ?. the ugly : when ever this rear axle was put in ?, the person left out the dang bearing stopper that goes on left rear side of axle ??!!, this is very important to keep the axle centered as its rotating !!!. so in the process of leaving this bearing stopper out ?, the axle walked on right rear brake side, AND ATE THE BRAKE DRUM COMPLETELY UP WHERE THE HUB RIDES !!, as you can see from the brake drum cover pic , its chewed up big time !!. once i got the brake drum cover off, i expected to find worn out brake shoes, rusted over , worn out brake drum..right ?..NOPE !!. what i did discover was a crap load of water, gear oil, and mud !!!. man..i almost barfed over this. ya'll mud riders ?..KEEP ON DOING WHAT YER DOING..IT'S FOLKS LIKE YA'LL THAT TAKE ME TO THE BANK !..ROFL. anyway, here is a few pics of the tear down on the rear swing arm, and brake parts...or shall i say...what is left of the rear brake parts ??!!. thank goodness i had a spare rear brake backing plate !, slapped some grease on the pivot points, installed a set of brake shoes, set it aside, i've got to come up with a rear brake drum cover, and a rear brake drum..i know just the place to go get them !..lol. as for the axle bearing stopper ?, i ALWAYS keep a spare around when i come across one ?, because its for this very reason !!!. got that taken care of. closed shop, came inside, its 1:05 am, i called it at 1 AM.

  13. I saw this B-52 at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs back in 1989. It is huge. It looked like it to me anyway. It had a sign that said it had a confirmed MIG kill during the Viet Nam War by the tail gunner.
