Multi-task my a$$. I can barely tie my own shoes.  :roll:

I just dealt with that arrangement today pulling the driveshaft and the Grenade out of the Midget.  Very BMC - just keep adding bolts.

But yes, a whole hellofalot easier than the histrionics necessary to change out gears that you currently go through.

Now to come up with a flange for the pinion.

May the axle housing never suffer the indignities of complete disassembly again.  :cheers:

Well, I guess we're making a LOT of progress . . .  :roll:

We are NOT rebuilding . . . We are reloading.

Have you booked your tickets yet Wayno? How is Gus's savings plan going? Don, Sandy needs a holiday... Stainless, ever been to Australia outside airports?........................

Goggs, I wasn't born yesterday.

Hmmm, friend doing major house reconstruction invites you over.....   :-D

Seriously, we would love to but right now it's work when the works available. 

This new bullet for the SOS makes me about pee myself, I imagine you must have at least soiled your self a little bit.   :cheers:

They're probably all Super Bowl ing Goggs.
  Sid.

A prize insult when I was at school was "Champion!"... It meant " champion bowl swimmer" if you get my drift....
No comment from you on the new motor young fella?

Oh yeah and bring yer nail bag and trowel.

I'll be honest, I am still stunned, stunned about the whole thing. Got people to talk to about a new exhaust and few other things....... Gotta wrap some house stuff up and then start pulling the Buick out of the SOS :cheers:

Shazaam - it's already in Oz?

Tangential to Don's point -

When I owned a van and more of my friends were transient, I always made sure to drop it off for service on weekends when my buddies were moving.

No bother, you guys.  You're in Oz -- just turn it upside down and it'll all be fine. :-D
