    Yeah, I can’t imagine feeling so utterly and completely fucked.

    Game over.

    Phew, that is brutal. Dude probably wished he was dead seeing that sow coming back for him like that. Helluva a way to get it off of you, though!

    I’ll have to think about whether I really want to listen to that or not haha

    I’ve been terrified of bears my whole life, but it all crystallized when I was at the house of a friend of our family’s with my dad. These folks had lived in Talkeetna (sp?), and the guy had this book on the shelf. I asked him if I could look at it and he said sure, so over the next hour I basically doom-read the better part of the whole book.

    The clincher was a story of this bear that was an absolute unit and had developed a reputation as a man-killer because it had become apparent that he was hunting humans specifically. My recollection is that because of a couple missing hiker/fisherman reports from the same area, they finally tracked this massive boar bear down and killed it. When they did the necropsy, they found the remains of at least two different humans in its belly and the fucking thing had been shot over a dozen times over the course of years and had obviously survived. One of the bullets was resting on its brain and they speculated that along with developing a taste for humans, it was essentially insane. I recall when they measured it it was something ridiculous, like 12 feet tall, 5-6 inch claws, and paws like fucking dinner plates.

    I’ve been terrified, irrationally or not, ever since :rofl:

    Just follow your engine out procedure and nose it down into the dirt.

    I mean, there's oil in the t-case so you might have have a leaky seal or drain/fill plug. A lot of that just looks like grime and such built up over the years. Clean it up best you can then keep an eye on where the leaks are coming from. Make sure your drain and fill plugs are tight, replace the crush washers on them next time you remove 'em.

    I was wondering if the fan could blow engine oil all the way back there, maybe from the oil pump seal or something like that. But yea I should clean it up anyway. At least it's preventing rust maybe.

    The valve covers were done recently, but it's always possible they weren't seated correctly in the install. I haven't noticed any smoke from dripping on the exhaust though. I thought of the oil pump seal too, but it's hard to tell just by looking at it.

    bro the fan is not blowing engine oil back onto your t-case lol. That's gotta be gear oil from the case itself.

    Degrease and clean, then look for wet spots before taking 1,000 guesses.

    Remember some of it requires user intervention to really find the cause of an issue rather than sit on the PC and spit out assumptions.

    You got good suggestions so far.

    Hm yea I thought it smelled like engine oil, not super sulfury like gear oil, but it does seem really far to be slinging it back from the engine. Resealing the transfer case doesn't seem like a one bannana job at all either.

    Don't they make some dye you can put in the oil to make it easier to see leaks?
