Yes, noticed that "theoldseacaptain" ;)

Thanks!

Normally, Mr. A. Grinder comes out to grind off the ABS Collar and Bearing, but only today I have found a local Community project called Shedheads. They have my two duff Rear Shafts with worn out bearings and decent ABS Collars "pressed" on. I asked them if they can heat up the AB collar and tap it off (then its re-useable) and maybe het up duff bearing and get that off too??? Then it'll be a trip to my friendly garage (they have a press) to pay them £10 a shaft to press bearing and ABS collar back on??? But IF i had a press, that would save me about £50 a year ...


From memory when we last discussed this, Martin has something like this -



www.machinemart.co.uk/p/clarke-csa10ep-1...nomy-hydraulic-floo/

So we'd dangle the rear shaft through the hole and then press the shaft down onto the bearing / ABS Collar ?

My local garage do it with a length of roll cage tube they pinched from me...! The tube goes over the shaft and the collar gets beaten home with a BFH (Big F... Hammer!)

I'll ask Santa for a press this year ;)

Fixed ABS light... battery off for a bit and then take it for a run...



And also testing the Autool OBD2 reader ;) I’ll write a little review on that in the tech section...

I have the off brand version of that press. Less than half the price.

Very similar. I looked at the machine mart one and couldn't bring myself to pay an additional 100 plus quid for some stickers. They are all from China and probably the same factory so why waste petrol money?

Also it's not rocket science to replace the jack with something a bit more manly as needed, it's not as if we are incapable of making the odd modification as need.

Not sure what the dashboard might get up to when it's loose like that though...

Having tested my springs and they've bedded in nicely, working really well on the suspension of my truck, I'm now happy to say what they were off...

They are all front springs from a Mercedes W124 230 E Saloon car

REMEMBER that they gave me 5" of lift on a heavy Jimny, they are right for my application, but may NOT be right for yours... I was planning on cutting them down to suit but as it happens they all fitted on - front and rear - with no cutting or modifications to any other suspension components - but again, that's for MY application.

After all the repairs, and then a long week in the shop due to staff holiday, I was really happy to get out for a days greenlaning on Sunday gone...

Here's the blog including all Brett's (Maverick) videos -

Enjoy! ;)
