At the end of the day, the shop lights illuminate two trucks which are suddenly without traction motors.
Notice the newly-exposed bull gear at the right end of the near axle.
With the motors gone, the trucks can be moved without worrying about the condition or lubrication of four gear cases and sixteen motor bearings, all of which will become a real pain to access once under the car.
We'll give our volunteers a break and wait a month or two before the next backbreaking truck work... Thanks, guys!
