  1. Anyone from around Red Deer? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hahah yes guys I mangled it. 8 flathead screwdrivers wedged in there didn’t do it any justice. I suggest if you gentlemen are to attempt this disassembly is to knock the pulley itself with a block of wood so that both the clutch plate and pulley come off together, saving you from warpage. i was going to throw it in a vice and try to squeeze it more flat, i’m just procrastinating, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Yes it’s literally a bushing pressed into a outer race, apologies I didn’t not get the part number off it, I just cleaned it off and reinserted it, I will note though when you remove the clutch from the housing there are 3 shims inside the neck to be aware of I almost dropped them on the floor without noticing. take note of how the compressor sits in those metal gaskets as well before you pull it out, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I tore apart most of the housing while waiting for the new bearing to arrive anyone that has seen any of my posts knows I have to make it blue lol The squealing bearing needed replacing I ordered a NSK 35BD219 AC Compressor Clutch Bearing I didn’t feel any desire to dismantle the compressor itself. I am curious to see it’s insides but not enough to worry about it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I completely agree with adamzan, I did mine without a press just a ball peen hammer and if you give the inside of the ears where the bearing cap seats a light emery cloth scrub the new parts will go in easy, it took me a little while how to figure out how to completely dismantle the front driveshaft to clean all the old grease out of the slip yoke, i only needed to do that for the powdercoating since i had it all apart I polished the shaft with the splines and put in new grease and it slides a lot smoother. good luck and don’t drop the roller bearings on the floor when reinstalling Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That’s what my girlfriend said about this steering collum bracket with a viking compass and nordic protection runes that gets covered by the dash. Winter in Canada is cold what else to do but powdercoat every thing in sight? For the record I had a leak in an old windshield and that piece must of had water dripping on it awhile because it was encased in rust Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. i had the pry tools in the right position just kept going around until it slipped out, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Ok so I want to replace the bearing in this unit and I’ve removed the 10mm nut over the pulley, but the clutch cover does not seem to want to pop up It almost looks like a lock washer underneath but i’m thinking it’s part of the inner diameter of the top plate, perhaps it’s seized down in the recess and lube and heat will release of, anyone ever disassemble one of these? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hey thanks guys, yes well I had to put my other wheels on hold for now since it’s -40 C* Out in the shop. I started working on a different wheel, the flywheel, I wasnt happy with the appearance of it so I coated the inside cast iron part and the outer lip, then just started at 80 grit approach with the emery paper up to 3k grit, then polished with green and white emery, using a dremel then metal polished, Gives a nice mirror reflection, not bad for a 26 year old part. The other side I left alone except for the inner diameter around the flange Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Got the old spare tire dismounted, bead blasted the barrel and the backside left the chrome intact Applied a base coat of signal white, put down a powdercoat of glowbee clear, laid down the template then sprayed the rest of the backside with ink black, peeled off the decal then finally baked on a gloss clear over everything, now i’m polishing the chrome up, only 4 rims to go The entire inside of the rim is somewhat illuminated from the glow, it’s pretty sexy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So in my eternal quest to powdercoat every piece of metal I can tear off. I always assumed the heat sheild under the body ( 2 pieces) were riveted on, I pulled the carpets and underneath were a bunch of zinc coated 10mm nuts! I recently acquired a vinyl cutter so I’ve been playing with designs. The square piece is the CPU cover from under the passenger seat. The coating is a base of Superchrome, Peeka Blue over that, and finally a Shattered Glass clearcoat which gives it a nice lustre... Of course if the sun is shining a lustre over my heat shield I’ve probally rolled the vehicle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Not sure why the end pic didn’t work this app is so buggy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Rebuilt and powdercoated all the drum brake hardware, a lot of prep work, it’s pretty I just hope it all works when I put the handbrake haha Took me awhile to remember how it all went back together, need to order the longer parking brake cable for the other side still, the old one cracked open in a couple spots and siezed the cable up.

  14. Gold Plated the ram cylinders for the rear latch because I’m nuts lol. Still saving for a engine rebuild, new manual transmission, until then I will be searching for any metal I haven’t coated in some manner. My next project will involve ceramic coatings of piston tops and possibly cylinder heads and most likely entire exhaust Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
