  1. These 2 Shelties, check every tool I get out; just to be sure it is safe to use. Then when I bring home a new vehicle; they do a thorough inspection.
  2. Yes, only three (3 wheel studs) ; but those thick wide washers that fit in the recess's of the wheel, help to center the wheel on the studs. And if I remember correctly, the wheel nut torque wasn't really too high. I took many wheels off of Renaults, same type of wheel nuts; and never found a loose nut. The bolt-on hub caps on Renaults; kept the nuts and suds out of the weather and road salt. Granted, these cars didn't have enough torque to shear the studs off anyway. OH My those were the days.
  3. That was awesome. The driver of the Ford wasn't afraid to let it hang out.
  4. I see in the original post by, padgett; he mentioned pickle fork: Never use a pickle fork to try to remove the pitman arm! I rebuilt hundreds of Saginaw and Ford type power steering boxes at a dealership. A heavy duty special for the job puller was my tool choice. And honestly, in doing about 2 a day, everyday; the puller showed that it did some heavy work at the end of each year. Some pitman arms seemed to be fastened on the pitman shaft by a higher authority. NEVER. pound on the pitman arm, with a huge hammer; unless you really want to damage the box.
  5. This is what the old car hobby was and still is. Most of us remember working on a friend's car, to give him a hand. Well done intimeold
  6. We are doomed. When we have to ask a computer, on maintenance location points on a car.
  7. Didn't know your Dad; but he sure seems like the person; that could have been our best friend. Sorry for your loss intimeold
  8. OH No, I cleaned up my typing a bit in my original post. if you just read over it quickly, possibly you construed that I ordered a Pace car. NO, NO I ordered an Anniversary Car. And my post was about GM stopping production of the Anniversary cars; to complete the Pace car run. I didn't want a Pace Car I wanted an Anniversary Car. I actually liked the color combination better on the Anniversary cars. Park a Pace car beside an Anniversary and many will agree with me. We Anniversary buyers, were put to the side; that is the content of the post. I haven't g
  9. zepher, I will look That was several computer failures ago; and lost the older stuff. Before we thought it was necessary to "back up"
  10. 1978 Corvette, Indy pace car This one was a surprise entry. 1978 marked the 25th year for the Chevrolet Corvette. So General Motors, a year in advance; announced that a Special Corvette would be made to commemorate the 25th year. Twenty fifth anniversary, is noted by Silver. So GM announced, sometime in 1977 that a Silver Anniversary edition would be avaliable in limited quantities. These were Silver and Charcoal ( a darker silver). I think the dealers were allotted maybe one each; or something like that. Don't kill me if that number isn't correct. So pro
  11. The Covid blues: Stuck at home and not too many places open So ------------------ Nothing better that taking a 2-stroke, for a ride. Just hearing that screaming engine; puts a smile on my face. I couldn't take my little doggie, on this ride; but I promised her a cookie for posing with the bike. intimeold
