Had one replaced in my 1979 $825.00 But I didn't have to lift a finger.
It is like a light bulb, if you baby it, it could last 10 sec. or 10 years. I would guess closer to the 10 sec. mark. Plus you can cause more damage.
Get it fixed! It is a pane when you have to push them.
a slight knock comming from my 10 bolt 4x4 rear end so I took the<BR>cover
off........oops. Pinion gear has lost a tooth and the tooth fairy<BR>did'nt
show up but now I need a rear end or at least a gear set. Any one
in<BR>southern Ontario have a 373 10 Bolt lying around with 6 bolt axles or a
gear<BR>set for this thing? Been driving it for 2 weeks with this tick b4 I
took it<BR>apart , how long do ya think it would last if I baby it? hard to
find parts<BR>in such short notice ya know.<BR><BR>Thanks
