So just traded my f250 for this itty bitty thing... I think I like it so far. It came with a newer western 6.5 plow.
Issues noticed so far are: oil leaks.. to be expected from what I hear. From valve cover and rear main seal. I'll get to that when the weather warms up. A "clicky" sounding front axle.
get to that when I get some cash....
The biggest issue I have is rear end hum... I'm a little stumped too. Under throttle sounds fine, but once I let off the gas there is a VERY noticeable hum / almost grind.
What are the possible causes? Pinnion gear? Outer axle barrings?
What is the aveage cost to fix each?
Suggestions for further diagnosis? And suggestions for most economic fix worst case if Pumpkin and axle are toast.
