Rag Joint Replacement

Hi All,I have to replace my (Steering) Rag joint, and didn't do that before. Is it possible to replace it without open/disassemble the Steering column, or Steering gear Box? What is the best way to do that? I found some videos from other Cars, but that din't help me really. Must I destroy the old Rag joint, or is it possible to move it with opening the nuts and Bolts? Must I have something I mind for reassembling, like position before disassembling? Thanks a to for every hint!With kind regards…See More

64 Power Seat Transmission cleaning-it did the trick

Posted by Norman Silverman on June 16, 2018 at 5:36pm 4 Comments

Hello All.

I thought I'd post a little encouragement for those that might have an inoperative 6 way power seat in their car. The fix is relatively easy, and VERY cheap.

I saw this question asked in 2012 but did not see a definitive answer to the question so here goes. The new main bearings I received for my build are little different than the originals. Of the five bearings the thrust bearing is the same as are two of the other bearings. Of the other two one has two oil groves and one is wider than the others. Does anyone know where the odd bearings go. My guess is they go in the front and the rear but I don't know what one goes where. Any information would…
