    Best method to remove the Steering Knuckle Arm from the Knuckle?

    Yea i dont remove the arm either when doing ball joints. I think it might depend on what ball joint press you have. I use a old Kent Moore that was my granddads and it works fine with the arm on the knuckle.

    Best method to remove the Steering Knuckle Arm from the Knuckle?

    Those steering arms are never fun. I use about a 8 lb sledge hammer and hammer down and up on the far end. Liberal applications of Kroil or PB Blaster. Repeat. Once you see one start to loosen, i get a punch in the crack of the cone and try to turn it. I saw one mechanic weld nuts to the studs...

    CANCELED: SS/MVPA Rally at Anthracite Outdoor Adventure Area

    Hi Chris! I have been to AOAA many times and also raced my 69 Chevy Blazer there at the Ultra4 event last April. I could possibly help out with trail guide duty's.

    Skyjacker 4" Lift Kit - differences between offered shock

    The Hydro type shocks are the cheapie in the shock world. I always go with the gas (nitro) shocks. Like cucvmule said check sway bar bushings, and tire pressure. Some tires have thin sidewall plies and do not corner well. Worn spring and shackle bushings can make it feel loose also.

    R.I.P.--ATANKERSDAD--Dudley Taylor

    I am so sorry to hear about Dudley! This was news to me and i feel terrible that i didn't get to see him one last time. I would have been there guaranteed! The first time i met Duds and his sons, Matt and Shaun, was at Davids funeral. He invited me in his home like he knew me for years. That is...

    Welcome from S.E. Pennsylvania. I dont think thats a M36A1. Do you have more MV's?

    I messed up...Possible to retap the knuckle on my front axle?

    The thread isn't tapered, the ID of the sleeve and the OD of the ball joint stud is. If there is thread left, I would try and chase it with a tap. If not, looks like its time for a axle swap. And I agree, the TM's are very useful, and for this job a civi repair manual would even work.

    Czech army kitchen trailer

    I saw one very similar to this at the 'Battle of the Bulge' reenactment at Fort Indian Town Gap. It was German and they have used it the past couple years I have been there. One of the young German soldiers was complaining about having to clean it.

    m116 A2 trailer

    I bolted down 5 pieces of 3/4" lath with some 1/4" flat head screws. The water still pools a little. Next time I will use 6 or 7 pieces. I rounded all the corners generously with the belt sander. I knew it was still a problem when I saw birds using it as a bird bath.

    A very old junkyard

    Update: I finally went by on my way to a halloween party. I couldn't get out cause I was dressed like the Imperial Wizard so I snapped some pics from the car. It looks like they have cleaned out considerably, But not completely. I cant see the CCKW from the road, so no idea on that. But the...

    OIL Dipstick

    I also had a dip stick problem on my M1008. After I did a oil and filter change, filled with 7 qts, it still showed a quart low on the stick. I checked the tube to see if it was all the way seated and bolted, and it was. Guess I will check against the measurements terracoma posted.

    Man I really hate to miss the 50 cal, But I already have a birthday party commitment. I also installed a square receiver and a brake controller and a RV plug on the back of the M1008 that i wanted to show off. No shackle brackets or spare tire was removed. And I got some rounds in anticipation...
