On my way home tonight I'll stop by the hardware store and get me a pair of #8 hardened bolts for the trunion block and I should be good to go.

Smitty, What would be the point? It'll be corroded the first cycle anyway. Unless you know something I don't?

You hid a time capsule in your porch and have to take it apart to get it? Why didn't you just bury it in the yard? Would've been easier and cheaper to get at.

It ain't time for a time capsule yet, time capsules aren't supposed to be opened by the one that placed it that's downright un-American. Have you no respect for a "time" honored tradition? :shock: :lol: It would have been easier & cheaper just like IOF said. :lol:

Well I suppose it's time for an update on the washer. I got the new seal today; two days early so that was good.

The new seal is on the left; old on the right. So, I guess that's what its supposed to look like.

All buttoned up.

Yes, before I put it back together I ran it through a cycle and a spin cycle. No leaks. It was a pretty easy fix and it cost me $23 and some time. A lot better than what Sears would've charged. I also feel those bolts could do with some lock washers. It seems that over time they may back out then the tub drops down and wrecks havoc.
