ORF, I think the D8 needs some bling. Here's an idea ...

The tourqe converter is supposed to drip fuel as it's running. The drip is now a steady stream. I guess that means the seals in the tourqe converter are bad.

Haven't adjusted the right clutch still. I'm starting to think it's a wear issue more then a adjustment issue. It disengages and turns right just fine.

Now the left clutch is acting up. After the clutches get warm the left side is almost impossible to get to turn. Takes a considerable amount of pull on the left clutch lever and running at full throttle to get it to turn left.

Next time I'm out there I need to pull off both inspection covers and have a look. Now is when I need a second person to pull on the levers while I look at how things are moving.

Had the idea of mounting my camera and filming the clutch engagement and disengagement of each side both stationary and while moving.

Old iron has its way to keep you busy.
