Terry and Frank, I remember those adjusting tools, had one, very handy, and made using the spoon a non issue! I was one that hand packed, and that way I knew it was done right! That second packer you used is something I would have used! Made quick work of the packing job! At my first job, after I finished college was a repair shop and they did a lot of brake work. They had a bearing packer that you put all the bearings in at once, stacked up, and it would pack them all at one time! Then we still went through and hand checked them all before we installed them! Rail!

Good Morning, Frank/Rail cars have cycled with rear brakes first drum than disk and back again, used that tool alot in the shop when we used to be able to turn brake drums and such. Another dreary day here then going to warm for a spell but the warming spells will get fewer and fewer. The week of the tenth one of those days we try to go on a last motorcycle ride up thru the Adirondacks weather permitting. still getting ready for winter here, have some more projects planned then hopefully will get back to building the Tot'r , will be trying to get the bulk of it done before spring so we can do more camping and of course get to the meet and greet .

My buddy that has the wrecker service that I ran around with has one of the 2nd packers, it worked really well, used it many times when I was at the garage helping him out. I always hand packed, Still using military bearing grease that my dad bought at surplus about 50 years ago, it is real thick and fibrous, this is what I use on my trailer even today.

Good Afternoon, Well doing one of my least favorite things today, pulling the left side exhaust manifold to get three broken studs out of the head, it was getting loud so I had to do it. Got the manifold off now to get the broken studs out, (you know there's a video coming right?) Stay Tuned

That looks like a really fun job Terry, lol. i agree with you on being a not so favorite thing to do. Looks like you got all but one removed already, or are they broken off below the surface ?

Good Morning, Frank two are below the surface, out of six bolts three were broke , got'em all out and back together. Now need to go get spark plugs and oil for an oil change. Going to be a nice day here mid 70's I think it's time to dust off the Harley and get parts,

Well, got back from a couple doctor appointments, and laundry, took the sun screen down and put the awning up and the front canopy down, the wind is just starting to kick up a little. So we are ready. Terry, glad that you got them out and putting things back together.

Hi Frank, Glad your not getting that storm, at least not the full brunt of it. Didn't catch the noon news so hope the track didn't change any worse than it already was. Got the truck back together, forgot how quiet it was . Should be set for winter except for snow tires, and putting the plow setup on.
