Good afternoon. Working in the office this week.
Got a call from my friend yesterday. Pulling into work she noticed the ABS & Brake Lights were on and she was panicked. Her boss told her not to drive the car and have it towed to the dealership.
I drove out to see her and took the Toyota van along. Left the van and drove her RAV4 home. Worked on it last night until almost 11PM. Checked fuses, front and rear ABS sensor harnesses. ABS controller connections. Removed the front sensors and checked for dirt and debris. Clean as a whistle and both tested OK for resistance.
The rear sensors? Both frozen solid into the rear hubs so I sprayed them down with Kroil and gave them a few taps with a light hammer and a brass punch. Let it sit overnight and today to soak. Tonight I'm going out to remove the rear interior trim panels so I can get at the ABS harnesses to disconnect and check resistance.
While underneath I also noticed that it's time for shocks & struts. So I ordered complete front strut assemblies, rear shocks and sway bar links all around. The front strut kits include the strut, spring, upper mount, bearing and the rubber snubber. Cheaper than buying individual parts and KYB which is an OE supplier had a rebate for a complete suspension package. Also ordered front hub bearings and spark plugs. So, this project will keep me busy for a few hours.
Although the car is a 2003 she bought it new and has an attachment to it. It's only got 136,000 on the clock and has always been garaged. ~$500 for parts. Cheaper than a car payment and it has lots of life left in it. Should be a noticeable difference once I get it finished. Parts should arrive on Friday so....................there goes the weekend.

late afternoon or early evening
got me a haircut today-while out to pickup a new shear bolt for the LX4 brush hog. yeah it broke last evening down at the neighbor ladies meadow. was sitting there watching a momma deer and her little bambi--pulled ahead a bit and thought boy is this thing ever quiet nowthen i looked back and seen the driveline turning
that old bolt only lasted for 12 yrs--why it didn't last to 15 yrs -IDK
jd wanted over a buck for the bolt--course its metric i paid $2.49 just for the bolt and $.69 for the lock nut then--but i have it in my hand so no shipping charges
so while out today-Charley boy made me promise to stop for his free ice cream at the tastee-freeze stand called the Cow.
me i had to pay $2.49 for mine boy how good it tasted
rained here off and on for most of the day too.

Took the JD-755 in to the local welding/muffler shop this morning to have a broken deck hanger bracket welded. I would have done it myself, but only have 110 to my outbuildings now due to a burnt out underground line that the electrician hasn't gotten to yet.
Tilled up more garden space before tonight's rain starts. Put a new battery in the JD 790, 9 years ain't bad for a battery these days!
This afternoon I picked up the 755, while it was still on the trailer for easier access, I greased the mowed deck, put the tool box & step back on & even found the slow leak in a front tire. An old plug was seeping air, so I pulled it out & replaced it with a new plug.

Sgs, why didnít you do this a month ago. Iíd have swaybar links, new springs and be done already. My new spring compressors arrived Sunday pretty late. The old ones were for to big of a coil. Iíll warn you, I found it easiest to just cut the top off the rears.
BigJim, Iím glad my dealer still sells stock nuts and bolts by the pound. The hardware store gave that up decades ago.
Good evening gtt, not much going on, Iím setting up my new accessory.
Don't know if it's like this everywhere, but went to 2 big box stores and 2 lumber yards before I found an acceptable
