The funny thing was they were off a '63 Ranchero. The owner was a nice guy who had just bought this Ranchero a few weeks ago and had pulled these wheels off to put whitewalls on like Nick was taking off the Falcon. LOL It was a nice truck with a 260 and C4 that he was swapping out for a 302 with OD. But yeah, pretty lucky, I couldn't believe it.

I had to split an NH 4610 series II to replace the clutch the same way, with 2 floor jacks. Mine had a full cab too, so I wasn't able to use an overhead lifting device.

Good luck with the repairs. Getting it to slide back together again will take patience...

I had to split the case on an Alice 190XT to replace the sealing rings between the transmission and the hydraulics and the biggest problem was the fluid lines inside had to be unhooked first and the manual I had didn't tell that and they got bent. I got new ones and they wouldn't even line up. Between waiting on parts and fighting with those lines it took me two months to finish it. I won't do another one.

ive actually got to buy a new helmet , prolly going to get another HJC , im long over due as ive gone down and hit my current helmet 3 times in the last year and a half, the last impact was very hard had a pretty bad concussion from that one

even though i know better then still using the old helmet its the only one i got and ive been putting off buying a new one but ill grab one soon( next week or 2) , specially with all the upgrades im doing to the bike suspension and power wise

Welllllllll, tonight I had nothing but fun. My niece dropped off her Saturn Vue for me to find a diamond pendant that fell into a channel under seat! It was a tube that crossed the floor under the carpet with notches in it for the front seat brackets to lock into.

It fell into the right side but I ended up sliding over in the channel to the drivers side. Crap, I pulled up the console and carpet and everything on the right side.

Id love to pick your brain sometime... We bought the thing for $800 and reverse doesnt work at all... no fluid to the filter or in the lines... I tore it apart today, the front pump is shot, all of the clutch discs and steels are shot, and Im hoping Im not missing anything putting it back together WHEN Im able to find parts.

It is good to see you are at least able to get some things done David. I assume that is an indication the foot continues to get better?
