No the wife didn't want to wait for me to finish it today Have to match up some brake hoses to replace the small steel lines that rusted out (my leak. Not the rack. But...

    Thank you Google. The lower part of the shaft is actually removable. Never seen that documented anywhere, as they force you to buy a whole column...

    August... blah blah blah

    Wonder if I could cobble together the world's longest drill bit and leave the column alone. What could go wrong? Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    August... blah blah blah

    Well. I intend on driving it. Since the safety shop forced me to get a u joint at 180k miles before signing off on the road fitness - and then cross threaded the retaining bolt - which then broke in half when removal was attempted - Means I'll be driving with all of you when fastened with a...

    Anybody attempting to change a steering rack on a 15 year old expedite van, without a torch and air tools, is a sadist that should be avoided at all costs Just wanted to put that out there

    4 hours 30 min from me. I'd be crossing the border, think I could convince them takeout is "essential" ? Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    August... blah blah blah

    I just realized I'm NOT going to live forever. Couch potato to working on projects sunup to sundown overnight I'm not bad off, but I'm not really ready if things don't go as I expect them to Comfort food? Try it, tastes way better than it looks

    It's July - Is everyone on vacation or something?

    Hey I worked every day last week. Driving instead of posting... Opportunities in health deliveries right now (for anybody that cares, you guys are all goofing off...I mean retired...) Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    In need of advise

    I don't have, and never had a straight truck - but I've been expediting awhile and have some free advice... Don't buy a truck. I agree with you about dealers, and the emissions system on the newer trucks. The only way I could see it working (and how I do it) I have a pre-emissions truck and...

    Glad you're doing well, OVM If they're that sensitive, scaring them away is probably the greatest favor anyone ever did for them. Not a business for snowflakes Sent from my SM-A705W using Tapatalk

    June know its June already

    Didn't you hear? I'm the only one working :p If you're bored, I recommend Zimaleta sprinter videos. Watching the first videos where he uses a hammer on brakes is priceless (Maybe I should make one. Is a slightly Asberger home mechanic entertaining? I enjoy spinning new brake rotors, they shiny)
