Scotty Kilmer Channel.

Well... I put this post together, clicked on preview and discovered that I'd timed out and consequently logged out. So I went back a page and found myself on the log in page. A time/space loop. Bother, I should have copied. So here I am again, take two:

I do a fair amount of work on my wagon and as I can't always afford to go to a garage and I have a secret connexion:

    YouTube.

There is a lot of useful knowledge on YouTube, to be sure but there is one channel that I really like ~ Scotty Kilmer Channel.
Here's his indroduction vid:



This is his website: http://www.ScottyKilmer.com

He works on American cars but when you correlate with a Delica manual you can pretty much put it together. There is a lot of information on YouTube but I find Scotty the kind of guy I'd enjoy having a beer with. He's like the backyard DIY guy's hero. Currently I have a minor axle seal leak in my rear axle that has spilled 80/90 oil all over the backing plate. To fix this problem would normally require a shop press, which at Princess Auto starts at around $500.00. Scotty has a better idea ~ a big pipe and a lump hammer.



This guy rocks. I thought I'd share.

Great old school/backyard mechanic tips.

This is the stuff my dad and his mechanic pals taught me when I was a kid......certainly appreciate these tips now. I like his comments about the engineering process that created the final design and the problems it creates with repair times.
Yeah I joined the Dark Side because the medical plan is top shelf!

Ha. First two words to come to mind regarding the "design flaw" would be "money grab". Having said that, I'll be replacing my seals and I'll do both sides when I do. Question is ~ how far behind are the bearings if the seals have gone? Maybe it's not a bad idea to replace the lot while I'm in there anyway?

I just picked up a Slide Hammer kit that comes with various extractor tool configurations, next I need to find a bad-ass pipe to fit over the shaft!
