I could not get the uppers bushing out. So i cut'm out. and I'll
just take one side at a time. But I can tell you this much, the other side will be a piece of cake.

Randy, your picture (CLICK HERE) says it all.

That split is eye candy to me and it makes this job so much easier. I love it. Good job!

BTW, before you pound your new bushings in, that shaft must be in place and oriented correctly. This job is coming along nicely. - Dave

Nice parts score!

Next time, take along PB Blaster for the bolts. WD40 is not a penetrating oil, while PB is a miracle maker!

Holy cow! Really? They put muriatic acid in pools? I'd be afraid it would melt the kids! It's really strong stuff.

Glad to hear you're taking the rust off your "A" arms, Randy. It's going to look dynamite when you're done. - Dave

Muriatic acid is used to adjust the PH level in swimming pools. I often have to add a pint or so to my small 12,000 gal pool, so it is quite diluted and causes no problem.

Randy - congratulations on joining the UAW! I belonged to UAW Local 211.

Randy your progress is always great , with amazing end results, working with your limited resources. You are a perfect example to anyone who thinks tasks are out of the realm of their capabilities yet with a little initiative , one can succeed with most tasks. I especially love your , outdoor at home tee shirt go to attitude ( with the birds chirping and your wife's beautiful green plants in the back ground . Me I'm looking out at another dumping of snow , and once again trying to see the gravel of the driveway as it slowly melts . It's such a downer longing for warm clear dry roads. But they will come sooner not later I hope in the meantime , you keep me cheered up , Ian ( Remember Not All Birds Fly South )
