Wheels look great Pete!

Dr. Bob...make sure you buy ATF +4 fluid for that trans.



The front wheels bearings are worn out on my conversion van (they are original with close to 200K on them!) although I have cleaned and repacked them a few times in 10 years of owning the van. So I ordered up new bearings & seals and also a set of new MOOG U-joints from Rock Auto. Next weekend's project before I hit the road for Lost.

That's why it's so expensive.

Didn't actually do anything to my van, but did do something for it. I grabbed a bigger (3.75" dia. vs. 2.5" stocker) driveshaft (free-from '73 C-class motorhome) for the rear axle swap (8 3/4 from '73 Maxi to replace JJ's puny 8 3/8").

Might have been a waste of time since it still needs to be shortened, but stripped the rust off and shot some satin black on it.

I expected tiny 7260 u-joints on JJ, and wasn't real surprised to find them on the Maxi, but considering the size of the driveshaft and 7,500 rear axle (Dana 70) rating, I was shocked to find them on the motorhome.

At least I'll save a little cash on that part of the swap...

Bad day!!! My friend and I were putting new brake pads on the front, pretty much all done and was looking at the engine when she shifted and fell off the stand landing on the rotors. The only thing that happened was the hood slammed shut and the prop rod went to the outside putting a small ding on the side of the hood and chipping off some paint on the top side area. Thank god nothing else happened below!! I shit my pants. After getting it up and the wheels back on everything is okay. So now I'm either repainting the hood or getting a fiberglass one with a scoop. Found a 70's hood with the scoop and working on a price as we speak and ordered the flake I need. Lesson learned, watch out for soft black top in the sun and always have the stands resting on the frame, I had mine about an inch from it with the jack stand below holding it. Yeah yeah I know stupid. At least we weren't underneath it and my lower spoiler didn't get ruined. I guess I'll have to make it bad ass now with a scoop!!
