nice write up..
sadly the parts to rebuild the last one I had to do (99 grand mark)
those parts cost as much as a new trw idler..
will rebuild the c-10 one when I get that far..
it's good that use showed this with hand tools and didn't just go to the body saw that not everyone has..
thats what I like about the show MUSCLE CAR.. on spike.
Tommie will use the shop tools that most home garage guys don't have.. then show you how to do the same thing with simple tools that most have or most can get for short cash...
stacy david does the same on gears...
is that bushing poly or rubber.. if poly I'd have added a zerk fitting while it was apart.. so when it squeaks you can grease it..

good show, tho..
