I just got back from the Wallmart, east side of I-35.
As soon as I learned the situation, I jumped in the truck went to the Wallmart side of Best Buy to find if I can help( 10:22 AM). I found no bus. Circled around the store and came back.
I assume he fixed the problem and back on the road on his way. Wish him a safe journey rest of the way.

Thanks a lot, for the offers, guys. We moved out behind the wm to the Car Palace/auto supply inc, or whatever it is. They could make hydraulic lines, and they made us a new hose. We are now up and running, and will leave very soon.

Christy, thanks for the offer for transportation. We were able to make it the one block over the the place where we had a new hose made.

AJ, I think the biggest bummer is we didn't get to meet you. We were just behind Walmart, off of Hemphill, and 24th ave. Thank you so much for the offer to help. That was very kind of you. We moved over here at 9:20. Too bad we missed you!

Thanks again, everybody. We are getting rolling now.

God bless,

John

One other thing. That oil line didn't have oil in it, so I didn't have to deal with any oil. It was very nice, because that was the biggest reason why I wanted the mobile mechanic. Since we didn't have that to deal with, it really was no problem.

God bless,

John

Van,

There was no oil in the line, probably because it is pumped through there when the engine is running. That is what I figured, anyways...Looked to me like it is only pressurized while the engine is on.

God bless,

John

Tulsa must have been colder. This morning, in OK city, it was 32...nice and balmy after being a high of 10 back home.

Glad to hear you're up and running with minimal distress! Grin

It's a good thing you're getting out of Dodge as a cold front is coming in tonight with lows projected down to about 4, with below 0 windchills. Angry Angry Angry

Cable, it was you who suggested fixing it ourselves, so maybe you get all the credit...

Christy, that is going to be quite a shocker, for you guys. I agree, it is cold...

God bless,
