    Opinions on bearing grease?

    Body lift

    was thinking of building my own body lift. Have the material in the shop to make blocks and mot of the bolts. Problem is they are 1/2-13 bolts and not 12mm. Will the 1/2 bolts fit in the body mounts? Isnt there a sleeve in most body mounts?

    Speed Bleeders

    I used that pressure bleeder kit a few times and works pretty good. Plus you get a fluid change out of it. cant remember the name but put some fluid in the container and attach to reservoir, pump it up and crack the bleeders in order. easy for one man.

    Oil filter sandwich

    Has anyone put on on a 2011 f150 for newer 5.0? Was wanting to add an oil pressure gauge to my truck. The stock oil sending units go bad regularly and thought if moved to between the oil filter and block it would be easier to change when needed. Looks like to coolant hoses may be in the way though.

    1994 ranger ac project

    So I am starting an AC project on my 1994 Ranger. It has never worked for the few years that I had the truck. I believe it has R12. There are no labels on the rad support. I did try a can of AC Cool 134 that son had and it wouldn't fit on the port. So should I retro fit to 134 then trouble shoot...

    94 ranger drums tight

    I had a leaky wheel cylinder on my ranger so I pulled it off and replaced it. While I was doing that I figure I might as well replace shoes. Got it all done and the drum is tight on the shoes. I backed off the adjustment screen and opened the bleeder and that helped some but still tight. Never...
