10? this one has 3 each guide. 2 side and one back. is there 4 side and 1 back on each guide or something??There's an old jet saw here at work that needs all 10 of the guide rollers replaced I'll be working on that soon.
Better you than I, Gunga Din.Flat drive tire on the tractor. Filled with bio ballast. Probably 400ish lbs. Take off, roll to hill, back up pickup, push over into bed. 2 days at a tire shop an hr away that does ag/construction equipment. Back up to tractor, lever out of pick up and keep it upright, bolt back on. What a pain. A 9.5x24 r1. Almost 4 foot dia. 24in wheel.
A little while ago I bought my 1st torque wrench and I was thinking it would make things easier, it did help tremendously removing the huge 18MM nuts that hold the strut to the knuckle, unfortunately it didn't help getting things installed and finally aligned, my back will be a wreck tomorrow. I also had one caliper with a seized slide pin and one was a weeper, at just $35 for remanufactured ones from Raybestos I just replaced them. Wanted to do outer tie-rods too but after I got one separated from the knuckle it was frozen tight to the inner so I gave up and stopped the attempt, I don't have a torch to heat anything with and if you maul the old tie rod trying to get it off you've now immobilized the vehicle and it will need a tow to a repair shop, ugh.Bitch1, I know your feelings. I'm in my mid-70's, so I gave up doing suspension items like that a couple years ago. Too many larger bolts with high torques, especially when seized up with rust. Luckily I have a really good mechanic running his own small shop a block from our house, and he has ALL the equipment and know-how to do the jobs well. But brakes are less effort, so them I do. I did the '07 Accent (brakes and other items) above last month. Earlier I did front brake pads and rotors, plus one caliper only (seized slide pin I could not free up) on a 1999 Toyota Corolla.
That can happen to any batter over 3 years old but keep an eye on the new one, I bought a digital voltage display that plugs into the lighter on Amazon for about $9, this way I always see where the battery is at. On GM vehicles you have "afterblow", (you can't make this stuff up), if you've run the AC it will run the blower motor for 5-10 minutes after the car is turned off, I brought it back to the dealer while it was still under warranty thinking the AC control was going bonkers, problem is the blower is a huge drain on the battery when the car is not running.replaced the battery on my mazda3 today. it dropped dead overnight - no warning at all.
Wow, those bearings look older than me!.They have a 25 year old office trailer that gets towed from job to job. It had no brake or tire attention for who knows how long. One of the bearings sounded like gravel when I spun the wheel, so I knew I had a fight on my hands.
I bolted a 10' section of 3/8" chain to the drum and used the chain as a slide hammer. It works for truck axles as well. Just slack it up then give it a heck of a yank, and the slack comes out and hits it hard.
That tore the seal out, and then I cut the bearing cage and race off the axle with the scarfing tip.
No harm to the axle or brake wiring when done right.
Despite owning my '19 WRX for a year or so I barely put enough miles on it for an oil change, yay no commute now. Changing the oil on this vs the '10 WRX then '11 Legacy I had was so much easier. The top mounted filter on the FA engine is handy and there is no stupid skid plate blocking access to the plug.Lol at skyking
I was pissy that I had to take the passenger tire off to replace my oil filter on my new car on the weekend
