OMG yes makes one a softy, there is nothing like that! I have a 42 day old grandson, now that will compare but not having him every day I get toughened up in between visits. You don't have any toughen up time other than a few hours going to work.

Have fun, my God those are some good times.

Got some wiring and other things pulled from the Alpine today with Nick, I had a ball out there with him!








And I have to say, I see a couple of the dreaded Lucas electrical stuff that looks interesting. How about the override button on the bottom of the starter solenoid?



And the adjustable vacuum advance? Pretty interesting.

Hope you put some oil on the rubber seal when you put the new one on, and hand tightened it!

thanks i did and put a little dab of neverseez on thread, hand tighten and half turn after that is what i usually do. I had garage put a new oil pan gasket on for me and they had to take the filter out. some over zealous mechanic probably crank it tight.

Had to replace the pinion seal on the 8.8" Ford in my Falcon today. I knew it was going to go, as it was damp when I pulled it at the wrecking yard earlier this year. Just figured it would be way easier to change in the car than on the ground, and it was.
I got it out and swapped, and was a bit surprised that it went together as easily as it did. Marked the flange, nut, pinion, and took measurements, and it went right back where it started once the seal was in. Now I wont have to clean up the dark spot on the driveway every few weeks!

OBKB, I spent a couple of hours making the LH convertible B pillar support structually sound as I had done to the RH side. Still need to clean up the welds, drill it and sand blast it. Almost ready to uncover the fourth row body mounts.
