    In response to your questions:

    1. the best way to check for water leaking in the car is to check
    around your ankles and see if your socks are wet.

    If you must replace your seals please be kind to them as we do not
    want the animal rights people boycotting our web pages and swim ins
    and throwing red paint on our amphis.

    Doug :cool:

    OR you can call Doug Parsons and Roger Sallee and for a beer or two
    they will back you car into the lake while you wade/swim out to
    inspect. It works great.

    I guess I owe him a beer or two.

    All jokes aside beware of any oil dripping from axle tunnels. Oil there
    means water can also enter trans. ( double lip oil seals) Also gear lube
    on inside floor means dry trans. Check bolts on differential cover.
    Slipping clutch or excessive chatter input shaft seal. There are still
    people out there not using Amsoil. Remember order number 508472. Helps
    support Amphi net. For those not at Celina, I got to see Gordons new
    production marine light lens. These are excellent. If I didn't have a
    chrome nude I would get one. Also the new rubber gasket is great also.
    For those with 12volt negative ground and no fuel gauge, J.C. Whitney
    has kit with float and gauge for 15 bucks. Cool part is float is direct
    screw in fit. No drilling! Gauge mounts anywhere you want. And it is
    nice to know fuel level. Cruising for hours at night wouldnt of been
    enjoyable having to think about fuel. This Lake Geneva gig might just be
    a lot of fun. I've been getting some feed back and turn out might be
    surprising . The pressure has been building to get Brown Wonder into
    some other color. The 66 is nearly ready for its red paint. I keep
    finding little spots Iam unhappy with, more primer more blocking, and
    more inspections. All of this so someone else can cruise it. Of course
    if Brown Wonder became red and fairly smooth it would sell quickly.
    Hmmmmm. Later Dave the Wave
