Yeah, I have the large harbor fright press, and it's pretty good. I've certainly used ****tier ones. What's the planetary out of?

Damn dmaul, sounds like an expensive car to run.

It was a 4l80e I built for my truck. I have to do another one though, so I can have a transbrake. I was too cheap the first time, which was dumb. I've never done this before, but I watched a video on youtube and did it...what a time to be alive.

Don't overlook pawn shops either. Once a month I take a Saturday and check out 8 or 10 different shops. The reputable shops here all offer 30 day money back guarantees.

I recently needed a new router and found a basically brand new Porter Cable 3 1/4 hp with 1/4 and 1/2 collets and a few bits for $60. I had just looked at the same router at my industrial supplier for $529.

I even bought my KTM 300xcw from a pawn shop. 2015 with 49 hours on the meter. $3400. Dealer wanted almost $10,000.

This, especially for general tools like circular saws, etc. Or austrian motorcycles....

Now with YouTube it isn't as risky. What a world

I'm not poor at all, almost a self made man. In 12-15 years we could afford to pay cash for a 7000 sq.ft. home but what the fuk would we do with 7 bedrooms and 6 baths? **** like this is for people who need ostentatious displays of wealth to make up for small dicks - or in your case - a small heart.

You inherited a business, and now you're such a precious success you're posting on the internet about a grade 10 woodworking project, and when someone calls you out for being small time you neg rep them.

I would expect better from a man with a 7000 sq.ft. home. But for someone born into wealth, I suppose you're par for the course.

Yeah it has the serial plate. It was left out for disposal behind a lab nearby where I work. I suspect they discarded it due to the motor failing, not due to its age/condition. The motor is free but doesn't start with power. It needs additional testing. It is a 1953 (Ohio plant)

I spend just as much time looking up how to do things on my phone as I do working on the car. I know I have something down when I can work on something without consulting any reference. Costs don't go down but at least my labor does as I get better + own better equipment.

The other thing is looking back and realizing "ugh i did a **** job on that" or "i should have done that differently, that was stupid". The only way you can do that is if you gain the knowledge to know better.

Arbor plates, came with the press. Yes, they are for exactly that. Great with ball joints in control arms and steering knuckles. The rest of the parts from the top down are axle nut socket, ball joint press plate, ball joint press cup, bearing, spindle, ball joint cup. I've bent more than a few ball joint press c frames over the years, but the rest of the kit is nearly indestructible.


A ball joint set for reference. Mine came with the c frame, 2 plates, and 3 cups. I've used sections of exhaust pipe also... Usually end up crushing a few before it comes loose though.


Here's a tip for pressing bearings. Once you get the old bearing pressed out, knock the guts out of the shell and cut a relief slit in it with an angle grinder. Use it to press in the new bearing. The old shell will line up perfectly with the new bearing and the slit will allow you to remove it easily. I have a collection of junk bearing shells hanging out near the press.

Yeah, I thought it looked Chevy. I haven't been into a 4L80 yet. The 60's I send to the local trans shop because they can do them in their sleep now. I've lucked out a few times and found 60's freshly rebuilt in the wrecking yards.

I've replaced ball joints using one of those kits manually, lying on my back with a 6 foot breaker bar, using it like a rowing machine. Not recommended. I see why the kits you can borrow from stores are always ****ed up.
