The weather was great, so as planned, I drove down to the storage lot to see what was what with the missing vent lid. The first step to get on the ladder is a little nasty even if you don't have a bum knee, so I took the folding extension ladder to make it a bit easier.
First thing I noticed was a problem I didn't know I had.
A little research on Amazon, EBay, and the owner's manual helped me find the right replacement, and it makes sense to get it from Amazon, with the 3% off I get by using their card. Can't say I'm nuts about the cost, but it does look like a job I can do.
Proceeding forward, the naked vent was obvious.
The fan works just fine, so the day out in the rain and snow don't seem to have damaged anything but my peace of mind.
And so it goes. I need to call Buck about finishing the differential rebuild.
Happy Tuesday, y'all.
