I finally got a little bit of time to get the jeep up to the shop and a power ratchet for the steering wheel nut. Wow... I worked at home with a hammer, wrench and PB Blaster for a looong time trying to get it off. It took all of 2 seconds with the power ratchet. Maybe SnapOn stuff is worth the money!
Next problem... the wheel puller I borrowed from my father-in-law is damaged... bent. I should have looked at it close when I borrowed it. It wouldn't work anyways... the arms or fingers at the end are not big enough to reach around the wheel. Bummer all the way round.
I tried a hammer on a block of wood after the puller failed. No luck. Soooo... tomorrow it is back to the brother-in-laws shop for a bigger and better puller! It's nice to have family with TOOLS!
While working on the wheel I found "Bob"
Don't know why anybody would carve their name in the wheel... but obviously Bob did. I wonder when Bob took knife in hand? Again... if only this jeep could talk. There is also another carving in one of the spokes but I haven't deciphered it yet. Sorry... no picture of it.
While working on the wheel my buddy crawled up under the jeep... boy does this ever bring home how much work I got to do!
Another shot of Bear... trying to get me to throw something for him... in this case it is a rotten potatoe!
That's all I have for tonight. Trust you guys had a good weekend.
