Ever change the ring and pinion in the differential without separating 
the differential from the engine or removing the engine from the 
UltraVan?  It is more fun if it is done a Pizza Hut parking lot in the 
snow.  I don't recommend it but when you are 1,700 miles from home and 
spin a pinion what choice do you have?
