    I'm in the process of rebuilding the knuckles on my cruiser right now. That'd probably be enough to talk most people out of owning one. Not a difficult job, but probably the dirtiest thing I've ever done to a vehicle lol

    So I've had a bit of a gas leak around the tank for some time now

    It started off as a smell when filled, then after time started a mild drip when filled, then eventually got to the point when I filled it past 3/4 tank, it would drip

    For the past few months, I've been filling her up about 1/2 tank (which is just enough to get me to work and back lol)

    New tanks are uber spensive and I didn't want the downtime of welding mine, so I picked up a used one from the local bone yard for a $100 bucks and had it boiled, sealed and pressure tested

    Finally got a chance to throw it in today














    No more smell, no more leaks

    The MAF extended range tank looks great



    but not $1400 great

    Besides, there's a gas station on every corner around here, so there's no reason to load her up with gas and make her heavier than she already is

    So I've been putting off replacing a leaky rear axle seal for a while now

    It was a minor leak (in fact, there was no drop in level when I checked), but after a long shift at work last night, I decided to pop into the shop and just get it done

    Like an idiot, I followed the FSM's instructions and tried to remove the ABS sensor

    Thing is, unlike the front axle, there's no reason to remove the rear sensors

    Ended up snapping the mounting bolt

    With no room for an extractor bit, let alone a drill, I was pretty fucked

    I'd have remove the entire backing plate in order to get it from the other side, but I was too lazy for that and just drilled through the plate and installed a bolt and nut

    Blew an air line fitting for one of the horns last week

    Apparently, the cheap plastic fittings don't like 200psi lol

    Replaced it with a much better brass inlet fitting
