this is not about parts, this is about a guy down on his luck, and thought I would do my best to lend a hand for him. as most already know, powerstroke has been fighting his 1994 trx300fw from day one , well..he's having a ton of bad luck lately, spec today !..lol, soooo..i thought I would step in, and try my best to help a bro out. sooooooooooooo..with that said, if he even gets to check something out tonight ? ( which I doubt he will..not sure ? ), if he can't solve the problem ?, I stepped up, and offered to drive to the middle of TN sunday, and help him fix his trx300fw. poor guy has had one heck of a bad streak of luck I tell ya !. anyway, if he can't get the trx300fw working right between now and early sunday morning ?, I will be making a 5 hour drive east to show up at his house to lend a brother in need sunday, my some-what mech skills ( yes..i know i'm pretty good with old Hondas..lol ) to get him fixed up, and ridding around on his atv. all I asked from him is to pay gas there and back home, yes..you read that right !. I don't want anything for my time and labor, I just want to pay it forward, and help a bro out when he needs it more than ever right now. poor guy has caught heck today, I really fill bad for him, soooo..out of the kindness of my heart..i'm gonna play the atv rescue guy sunday if he does not fix it before then ?, i'll keep this post updated when I know more, ride safe ya'll :).

Shadetree,

That is very kind of you to help a fellow out with his ATV. In the event he is unable or not in a position to assist with gas/travel money, then contact me on the side and I will cover the expenses.

Everything that you do , will come back to you -----------


I hope St Peter takes that into consideration at the Pearle Gates ---------- three guys got in a truck wreck going to work and all were in front of St Peter , St Peter told them that while in Heaven they would receive a vehicle to get around with , and the grade of transportation you got was based on how faithful you were to your wife , he asked the first guy " How many times did you cheat on your wife ", he say not once , St Peter looked at the books and said that is true and gave him a 2018 Lamborghini , the second guy answered twice , ST Peter looked at the book and said , it was really 3 , not too bad , I got a 89 Chevy truck , tear in the seat but the a/c works , third guy when asked the question says , I can't count it was a lot , maybe 300 , after studying the book , St peter says , it was 673 , bad but I have seen much worse , I got a 67 VW Beatle , and it has a radio that works , so after about a year the 3 meet up and are shooting the bull , the guys with the VW and Chevy P.U. notice the guy with the Lamborghini was down in the dumps , they ask why , he says I just seen my wife , she in on roller skates and one is missing a wheel

safe travels Shade
and that's a great way to help someone ion need out, reminds me more of it was many many yrs ago
when friends/family, needed help
those with skills and called themselves friends or family, would just come and help, without the need to get PAID to do anything, I know in my area, almost NO one will do anything without money involved, and most will still not even show up, even then(even if saying they would)
so good for you!

thank you everyone !. just got back home. arrived at powerstrokes house about 8:30am, and dug in !!. first thing I noticed on right hand side ?, reverse return spring was sticking down in between the two case halves ?..ummm..not good !..lol. second thing noticed, when all bolts were removed by me, the cover sprung out ?..ummm..not good !..lol. his gasket got torn from the reverse return spring, put a good dent in both sides, I was able to salvage it with some hondabond he had on hand. third thing that stuck out like a turd in a punch bowl ?..THE REVERSE LEVER WAS BENT BAD !!. not good...sooo..with a little bending from my vise grips, and his bench vise, I was able to straighten it back out, all back together, now the kick start shaft was not working ?..welllllllll crap..he said it could wait..but I finally said..nopeeeeeee..i'm here..i ain't leaving until its running ?..AND RIGHT !..lol. needless to say..powerstroke is happier than a new born baby in a topless bar !!..lmfaooo..it's not only back together ?, but runs great so far !!!. pretty sure he's happy. got my cold ones, my cow bell, and said my goodbyes..and off, west bound and down, loaded up and truck'n !!..lol. sooooo..there you have outlaws..story had a happy ending :).
