Ok, to alot of you...well most of you this thread is completely stupid and unneccesary but im doing it anyways. For the last few months i've been telling my dad the 80(250k miles) is way past due on its birfield and that they need to be repacked. Told it would run probably 1000 or so at a dealer or 300ish for me to do it. He loves the cruiser and thats why he keeps buying them but he doesnt really believe in fixing them unless they're broke. In the past it has taken alot of annoying him to let me do anything to the cruiser.(lift, bumper, head unit). He just doesnt like me messing with it. Earlier last week i finally convinced him to let me do the birfield repack and i've got everything on the way to do it this weekend. He usually always helps with paying for some of the repairs but this one he says he wont b/c he doesnt think i've ever risk breaking a birf unless im wheeling really hard...now thats probably true but i just want you guys to please reply with any links, paragraph, reason for doing the birfield repack.....just help me sell him on it. I told him 300 dollars now is better than buying new ones down the road. Thanks.
