Changed my "Drag link or Push Rod" and Tie Rod this past weekend. The old ones were seized..and my boots were 'perma-crooked'. So, i put the heavy duty slee ones on. I had to pound the crap out of the old ends as EVERYTHING was rusted/stuck on. Below are the pics..

my girl took a 'candid' pic of me taking a break after beating the sh!t out of the old rod ends..I bet lots of you felt like this with your cruiser many times! :D Gawd know i have before!!

That old one doesn't look too bad from the picture...though you do :D

I felt that way (and probably looked it) after doing my front axle. :p

First, congratulations! Good job.
Now the Junk response - I see why you had so much trouble and I'm sure your girlfriend tells you this anyway - your hammers too small! Not only that it's a carpenter's rip hammer. Dude, you own a cruiser now; move up to a large ballpeen.
Junk we miss ya.

*LOL* --- I remember looking like that one time while wrenching my old 40 . Hit my elbow I think on something while really cranking on a bolt in near zero temps ... endorphines can do wonders :doh: :D . Seriously though , hook up with a nurse and next time you're wackin at the cruiser she can start a D50W drip for you ... either that or start poppin ephedrine *L*

PS: Sorry for teasin , but damn you look just like all my regular patients . All that pic is missing is a scratch and sniff of listerine , and a small pool of vomit near your mouth .

Get a garage and a sledge ya weenie :flipoff2:

I have been in that position before...it is important to not assume such a submissive stance with a TLC or you will be mounted. :D

Joe,

Looking good man, most likely I am next for this project, just can not find the freaking time so far.

Nope AL, the slave driver has had me on the ropes all summer. Snuck in a whole house window replacement on me (13 in all). Did just get back from my friends up in NH with my new ARB and snorkle though :D :D :D :D. I know I was saying in about a month 3.5 months ago but I'll probably be ready in about a month now :-\.

Rick,

That's fine, we are expecting a baby on the way, so life is like a mountain over my shoulders at this point (working like a horse), so let's see in a 30-60 days how things look with you and I then we will go from there.

Hope all is well.

Al
