Bled brakes today, pedal feels much better. Thought I was ready until I tried to pull the e brake handle. It doesn't move. Bell cranks don't move either so I guess I'll need to take the drums apart and clean it all up as well.

Yessir, Awl gets the gold star. Rusted solid. Also found that left side was nice and full of oil. Feels like wheel bearing is gone too. So rear left side is going to get bearings and seals. Maybe time to do the other side as well?

I always do both sides when it comes to a left/right situation. That way I never have to recall which side I did last time. Keeps things even wear wise as well.

I thought that this was going to be the deal of the year until another one showed up, again in Airdrie, for $2000 last weekend. looked like it had been lightly rear ended.

Did you pick that one up? Last year there where a couple of 1hdt motors for sale for just under 5k. The Airdrie one sounds like a no brainer.

Finally! After new ebrake bells, shoes, rear rotors, rear axle seal and wheel bearing repack on the driveway, sick, in the cold, its got the safety;) And wheels on the ground again. Okay, so it could use a final bleed, and the marker lights don't seem to work, but that's all ok. I need a break, everything takes so much longer outside in the cold.

Too many trips to 4wheel and hard for me to put together enough time at once to really get anything done. Had to chip away at it this time. Its all good, except that I was sick for 3 days while out there. It would be great to change warm diff fluid though, that stuff is very slow when cold this time of year. Maybe I'll get out there to do the fluids before New Years.

Sounds good. We want to wheel and deal with you on a Christmas gift idea we're throwing around. A gift that directly depends on you. No pressure ;)

I have to make a bracket to fasten the front down, hinge the smugglers hold, build and hinge the wings, get some tie down points on it, clear coat and then maybe cover it with some thing. The down side to covering it is most material just hangs on to the dogs hair.
