      Loaded again 2 hours after my delivery. Got a 1,100+ mile load to NH. That's over 5,500 miles since last week Monday after I drop around noon Wednesday.

      The 200K was intended to represent miles but it is starting to match dollars spent

      Ftransit says husband stumbled upon his dream job which translates to a more "normal" lifestyle.... I would like to wish them all the best.
      Will miss her "likes" and comments.

      Research and common sense...and some luck...read the Transit forums and get a clue on part life expectancy...
      when to do a proactive part change to avoid costly untimely breakdowns....the old expression "If its not broke" does not cut it....buy your parts in advance at a better price....you are already on the path with your power pacs or whatever they are called...

      That's why I'm doing all this with a friend's and parts from Rock Auto. Except for Torque Converter which is being replaced in Trans shop. Hopefully the next 100K miles will be smooth and profitable.
