Jacked up the front today on my 4.5 to check the front wheel bearings. Turned out they were pretty worn so I replaced them with help from my son. I'm trying to teach him the benefits of working on your own car and how much money it can save. I think he gets it

I'm waiting for the rebuilt driveshaft for my 6 cylinder. I will post pictures when It gets here.
Cheers John.

I bought a 1970 250c parts car for my 1973 280c rebuild. The parts car just arrived yesterday and it looks pretty good!

I put in a fresh fuel filter in the 300D and trying to figure out how the dang power steering pump can be removed from between the vac pump, radiator and lower control arm.

While trying to extricate the pump (still in there) I noticed the alternator belt was way loose. I was able to get it remounted and now the alt lamp is no longer lit.
