Hello again!
While reviewing some of my old post today it brought back memories of things I've dealt with over time. So today I've been pulling out and highlighting a few specials and not just read them myself but share some more and link the past.
Hope you enjoy this post!
Here's a link to the original for reference.

Well as the title reads "wheel bearings don't last forever" I bring to you a few of my favorites.
As the story goes, I was working on a customers vehicle I received a call from another customer who was a bit concerned about his sons vehicle an what seemed like a little slack in the steering...
It wasn't just a little!
Actually it was quite a bit and had already worn the wheel bearing so bad it was grinding out the inside of the wheel!
The next one I'd like to share is about what I did when I didn't have a tool that would get the job done.IMG_20180211_130509.jpg
So pictured I have how to improve a standard pilot bearing removing tool to pull a stubborn bearing.IMG_20180211_130322.jpg
That Lil guy would not come out using the specialty tool that was made for it.IMG_20180211_130128.jpg
That's the one that was made to work , but didn't.IMG_20180211_130509.jpg
Taking it apart and a pulley puller I made a reliable pilot bearing puller!
Definitely got the job done!
Well I'll save more for later an until next time this is @mobile-joat signing out

Time, imagination and a FBH ( fairly big hammer) will solve most problems, a gas axe helps as well.

Lol first time I heard a cutting torch referred to as a gas axe... I like it!

We are simple people way down in the deep south.
you may use it as you desire, glad to have broadened the knowledge of a good guy from the North
[you can substitute another word for fairly as well if you like]

Most definitely. Thanks again

You got the job done right? 🐓🐓

No job is complete until it's done right. 😀 An it's most definitely complete!:) Thanks for stopping by.

Necessity is the mother of invention. We don't have access to a lot of specialized tools here so we usually end up making something that will work. Sometimes you just have to be creative...

That's exactly right.

Where are you my friend? I have taken some great pics just for you. Let us know you are still out there even if steemit stinks right now. It gets better every time it takes a dive. Miss you. 🐓🐓
