    I had better weld up a tool, we can't buy shit here, before the seals leak and ruin the new brake shoes. It hasn't been moved since that job.

    So the bearing sounds OK, just a slightly different depth. Do you have a special tool for the nut, I can't remember how I tightened mine. I had to...

    The tune doesn't change the amount of air the engine breaths, that is determined by the 6.5 litres X 1/2 RPM and inlet flow restrictions, when there...

    That's good. I replaced the wish-bone bushes, and found that it wasn't posible to get the alignment back where it was. My truck gave a #14 code...
