Post Discs on a Swing
I may do the rear disc brake install tomorrow. Depends on the outside temperature. Any tips on swapping these out on a swing axle?

Dang. I thought you guys would help me out here. Need a little motivation. Still sitting here staring at the box full of parts.
David, you are retired. Come on over. I will put you up in the house or the coach.

Mike P. & i tore down the stuck longBlock last nite ,,, :cry:
#3 main bearing spun on crankshaft & seized the f@ck Up :x
he sez he's embarrassed that 1 of his builds has failed So quickly, so no $$$ needed ,,, a Really stand-up guy, Mike is :mrgreen:

is gonna need align-bore, but Hopefully the universal case can be saved :shock:
keep-a-good-Thought !! 8) :!:

Had two jaw teeth cut out yesterday. Rained like crazy here all day so far. I got til mid sept fore we head to Branson so I wont get in a hurry. Parts are coming off shore are not good David. We are having major issues with gmc parts from China being out of spec. Make sure he mikes those bearings several times.

I just emailed MAM about the bad steering box I got at buffest. Really ticks me off. Will never buy another repop as long as I live.
