    NOS 11 Rear Drums — is this a crack safe?

    Like stated, there's two different materials, steel and cast. They don't always knit together completely during the process of assembling the two. You can look at it as the QC passed them this way and they should be fine. I've never seen it before and I've handled thousands of brake drums in the...

    Piman Arm Help

    When you replaced your tie rod ends did you count the amount of turns it took to remove them then install the new ones the same amount of turns? Did you replace the inner tie rods also? Have you removed the center link during all of this?

    Steering Wheel Centering

    This video shows what you need to do. Instead of measuring like the narrator says, loosen both clamps on the sleeves and turn the sleeve equal amounts like previously stated. Spray the sleeves with penetrating oil so they work freely.

    Any company that relines brake shoes?

    Six or seven years ago my local NAPA worked with me on trying to order a set of factory shoes. They were all relined but the sets we received weren't match sets. Some had the wrong lining on the wrong frames (short and long linings). Then some frames had different holes for the upper springs and...

    69 Bee LCAs coming off

    Looks like the Pro Forged ones are the ones that can be greased. They use the poly bushings? Not real sold on those yet. 6:35 minute and 14:00 minute mark.

    Any help with getting the spring retainer on the steering coupler?

    Too bad he installed the shoes wrong. (From the video)... They should be orientated like this... The flat part of the shoe goes toward the shaft, beveled goes away from the shaft so it can pivot inside of the coupler body. The way he installed them the coupler will bind.

    PST 1.03 bar installation

    At the 3:25 mark he jacks up the lower control arm to get the new bar to go in. So does this mean the new bar is clocked a little different than the old bar he removed? Also he never loosened the LCA pivot shaft.

    Torsion Bar installation question

    I never done one before but should the stabilizer bar and sway bar be installed when installing the torsion bar?

    What am I missing???

    Set your toe while it's on the ground/floor. If you just had it jacked up, roll the vehicle back a couple of feet and forward again then set the toe.

    Disc brake on tapered axle?

    It might be possible to do this. There's a seal in the backing plate and one inside the housing. The backing plate holds the axle from coming out of the housing. You would have to fabricate something to hold the axle in. The drum backing plate would interfere with the rotor. Maybe use the...

    Brake fluid. DOT 5 versus DOT 3 or 4 ...Paint safe?

    Dot 4 synthetic still has polyethylene glycol ethers which I'm sure it's what will eat paint. Here's a good breakdown... Synthetic Brake Fluid Dot 3 & 4

    Brake fluid. DOT 5 versus DOT 3 or 4 ...Paint safe?

    If the 3 and 4 silicone has glycol-ether in it, it could still eat paint. 3, 4, and 5.1 have glycol-ether in them. Dot 5 is a silicone with no glycol-ether. What I've read is the standard 3 and 4 can be mixed with the silicone 3 or 4 but definitely not with Dot 5.

    Brake fluid. DOT 5 versus DOT 3 or 4 ...Paint safe?

    Haven't heard of that one before. I'm using dot 5 for the same reason, getting 3 or 4 on paint. Dot 5 will have the slightest bit of sponginess to it. A good flushing will be required to rid the system of the old fluid first. There's a thread on here somewhere on what's best to use.

    Strange looking brake fluid???

    I seen the same thing with a company vehicle that the boss had someone different do the servicing. He used power steering fluid in the MC. The clear type and it was only used to top it up. One hour after the vehicle was put back in service, the driver called and said he lost his brakes. Very...
