I put a pair of new shoes on the front of the Fleetwood yesterday and had the front aligned.
No bastard can ever get the wheel dead right and it annoys the shit outta me being off a tad.
Yes, I will check the workshop manual later, but I assume, the horn is just a push down, turn anti-clock wise and it will release?
Any tricks apart from using a puller to pop the wheel off?
It's only out by 1 spline too.
Kevin, even if the steering wheel is out by a spline. We all know you are a lot more out than a spline... ;-)
ha ha ha.....that's a given.... How ya been Anders?
Its good expect for the daily shootings and bombings. Knives seems to be pretty common as well in Sweden nowadays.
So you survived the fires? I was more worried about the Cadillac and Astrid though.
Oh maaaaate..... that's a bit harsh.... true, but harsh. We are supposed to be getting a changing weather pattern shortly, we should go from drought where I am to flooding..... can't wait for that :-(
You know Kevin. Maybe you should check the Help as well? Might be something about steering wheels there?
But my guess is that you wanted to brag about the new tires and alignment.
Only replacing front tires? That's a bit cheap. I put four new on the Buick in the spring. Four new on the Cadillac in August. Four new on the Ford last week. And will have to buy winter tires for the Ford now as well. Sixteen tires in a year and you brag about two...
I'd forgotten about the help section.
I'll hop in there and have a look.
The rears on the Fleetwood are mint, besides, i'm building a new car at the moment, so that's eating up money like no tomorrow. (keeping this build, so its getting treatment)
Kevin , Are you and Anders brothers ? Y'all sound like brothers to me :-)
Anders has a very Aussie style of humour (oz spelling) and I have to say, i think we are alike in many ways.
Brothers in opposite hemispheres maybe.... I would be OK with that, having Anders as a brother.
Tried to get the bloody centre piece out, it felt like it was coming, then a chip fly out of it.
NOT HAPPY.... going to get the alignment guys to tweak the rods underneath and straighten the wheel next week. It's a 100 klm (60 mile) round trip..... lucky for me its a Fleetwood, so I can deal with the extra trip in extra comfort.... . LOL :-)
we are all lucky to have these cars ,dinosaur's for a lost time in space . I've had this happen before . i just took it back and got it fixed no charge ! The alignment guys can fix it . I would just take and tell them they made a mistake lining up the steering wheel.should be part of the job to have the steering wheel going the same direction as the tires
Yep, I was doing it wrong. Now i'm really dirty with myself. :-)
The book made it sound like the emblem centre (Oz Spelling) can out.
Thanks for the heads up Kurt.
