We’re still at the Golden Sun RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona where we will remain hanging out and visiting with friends. See my Blog entry for more information about this place…
A couple of days ago our towed Ford Bronco II started having transmission shifting problems. I called my friend and Cracker-Jack mechanic Mike in Washington and he diagnosed it as a bad modulator valve. This small valve fits into the side of the transmission and regulates the shifting process.
I took the Bronco to a local transmission shop and told them of my problems…but did not mention the modulator valve…
They did their diagnostics and proclaimed it to be a faulty modulator valve…
It was quite a tricky job getting the faulty valve out and the new one in place. A couple of hours and a little over $100 and all was well once again.
Soon we will be heading out into the toolies for about one month and I needed and wanted this problem resolved before that time. We just do not need to unnecessarily break down in the middle of nowhere.
