    Looking good!
    I remember the first time I tried to reassemble one of those. Fought and fought with the roller bearings. Never thought it would ever go back together. An old mechanic told me to use wheel bearing grease to hold the rollers in place.

    Today a buddy brought in his steam cleaner (hotsey). I did the engine compartment, underneath, transfer case and bell housing. I had a spot of mud on the side so I blasted it off and voila-it removed all layers of paint down to the original one. So I did the whole tub!
