    We are proud to have you as one of our own. We are all pulling for you to get well soon!

    When you get out and feeling better, we may all need to gather together for a weekend of Jeep building? Just a thought.

    Good night Chesty, wherever you are.

    at home again, two days of intensive antibiotic 24hrs a day continuous vancomycin (sp) which is supposed to be the strongest there is, and after that, they did not want to give any more that way because if kidney issues, it can screw themn up...dont need that.................. anyway at home with health care nurse for morphene and a milder antibiotic daily for a while. so me and my IV pole worked on jeep steering (after she left) different approach with a load of morphine, it almost got a hammer.....

    here is the rub, how in the hell do you get the top race bearing in the tube. i just gorped up a 9.00 bearing trying to get it in the shaft by going thru bottom and hoping it would slide inside to where it has to sit. last damn pieces shaft, inside oil seal, top race, long pin for horn (long thin rod that goes inside everything to activate switch at bottom (engineers really needed to look at that twice). that damn top race bearing full off little bearings and how in the hXll does it go together

    Ira;

    It's good to have you back. Things are too quiet with you in sick bay.

    Don't overdo it - let the good stuff do its work. Modern versions of Vancomycin are not too hard on the kidneys and strangely enough the original less pure versions could cause hearing problems ...HUH? Current practice is to limit the dosage to keep the little critters in your system from developing their own immunity to it.

    When you get your morphine, does your home health care nurse write a big M and the time on your forehead with a grease pencil like corpsmen used to do?

    Good luck figuring out how to get those little bearings down the tube...

    That's the spirit, don't let them get you down. You need one of those beer helmets to attach your juice bag to, so you don't have to drag around the pole. Just a thought.

    Look through the videos put out by metal shaper on you tube. I'm confident he covered the assembly of the steering column on a CJ 3. The only difference would be the horn would be a wire, instead of the shaft. When I get back home, I'll see if I can find the link.

    Glad to have you back!
