Post A bad thing happen on the way home

Well after three weeks in at the mine I work at,I was looking forward to getting home.Well at km 162 of the road to the mine,my truck kind of lurched a little.Never thought much of it until it did it again.This time though it was a pronounced clunk.Then a really bad sound of something comeing apart and then it came to a sudden stop.If I let the clutch out it wants to stall.Keep in mind that im around 40 km out of camp and over 200 from town.Its -44 with the wind.In order to keep the truck running to keep heat in the truck I had to keep my foot on the clutch.Needless to say the legs get tired after awhile.I had to wait for over half an hour before someone came along to take me the rest of the way to town.So now i guess for xmas I have to buy a new tranny.Not sure what a tranny for a 2000 f550 6speed is worth.Will find out soon I guess.Merry xmas to me.

Well I checked out pricing on the tranny.I got a quote from an outfit in Edmonton at 2200.00 plus 600.00 core.shipping not included.Local price was 3800.00. 800 core no shipping. thats a big difference.Will have to check it out some more.

Well I would rather do it in camp but I think Im going to have to get him to do it.Its kind of a catch 22.If I dont get him to do it I wont get the work I need.Sucks but thats the way it goes sometimes.

Thats a good question.That could explain the price difference.I need to get it in the shop out of this -40 weather.Thanks for that lone ranger.I just remember that it has the low 12345 gears on the stick.That could be a factor to.Need to do more digging.

Just talked to a ford dealer.He quoted me 6600.00 dollars for a new one.On the other hand he said that he had never seen one come apart to the extent where you have to buy a new one.It could be something as simple as a shifting fork dropping down.Will still have to drop the tranny.The plot thickens.
