Once again posting will be slow

 I smashed my right hand bigtime yesterday.Was going to post pics but  too hard to do. Typing is difficult enough 

I did a stupid by dropping a transfer case in the palm of my right hand while under the truck. Only 27 stitches and no broken bones but can barely use my right hand.

My daughter is getting me an internet device soon. Hoping that will give me better connection.

More later.


  1. As a retired mechanic I can feel that. Transfer case, your hand, concrete. Expletives deleted. Allan

  2. Fred, you don't do it halfway when you mess yourself up. That hurts just thinking about it. I never dropped a transfer case, but I've dropped transmissions. This is an example of why transmission jacks were invented. They work on transfer cases too.

    Take care of yourself and get better soon. No more playing Superman when working on cars.

  3. Jesus Christ.

  4. For future reference, it will hurt less if you do not drop a transfer case on your hand. The more you know...:)

  5. Get Well Fred.
    This life thing too often bites hard.
    Let me know if you need a single damn thing?

  6. P.S. Did I ever tell you about the time that I (literally) bounced an engine, as a formula wrench? Screws in block hoist, not threaded deep enough.

  7. Yeah. Shade tree mechanics run risks the paid guys don't usually face. Self injury being a big one.

  8. Sorry to hear of your injury, Fred. I hope you recover quickly.
