    I saw your post on the Spicer u-joints somewhere else (maybe in a thread about what to use for knuckle grease) and if I need an axle that is the way I will go.

    Thanks for the pictures. I think you are lucky it was just a small piece instead of the whole thing. That piece probably went out the tailpipe when it let go but I would have a good look at the...

    I am missing something. If I apply the brakes, the only thing with a load on it is the brakes. If I turn the pinion with the brakes applied then I have a load on the carrier as well. It reads to me...

    Before the infrared thermometers became so common I boiled senders to see if temp gauges were reading correctly. Thermostats can be checked in similar fashion. Just need a candy thermometer or the...

    Check compression. If you are losing to and igniting fuel in the exhaust system, then that valve may be gone. I would recommend a differential compression test so the leak can be traced if there is...

    I couldn’t get it with a hammer and punch even with heat. Ruined a good brass punch though. It had to go to the press which had it out in seconds. Bearings and shaft are pretty chewed up.
