Diff is installed. I need to get a new seal for the diff cover though because I messed it up when removing the axle.

I also "think" I fixed my axle.

Hopefully I used the clamp tool correctly.
Dude I hate those clamps I never can get em. My ass would have a couple hose clamps 180d on farm stuff but definitely not on a race car

If I did it correctly, they tool worked pretty slick. They are definitely nice and tight. Hopefully they stay that way.

the tool is a winch the double spiral band is cinched tight with?

they work great, hopefully you kept grease out of the area they clamp down onto

i also use the minimalist approach to grease, they put way too much in em for spinning them at 130mph, they were designed for 100k+ life at 60mph

Yes, that's the tool. I cleaned the surfaces really good, put a small bead of rtv on them, and I did take some grease out of them too.

Old seal....you can see where I bashed it.

Using old coilover parts to install the new one. This fit absolutely perfect.

New seal in.

And the cover back on, axle installed, strut bolted to the spindle, oil pressure sender in, and front wheels back on.

I lost my new package of o-rings for the hydroboost, so I need to do some more looking.

Today was my son's 1st birthday. But he woke up puking, so we had to cancel the party. He's still not keeping anything down, and my 2 year old daughter just started as well. So, it's been a lot of "work for 15 minutes and spend the next half hour cleaning up puke." My wife took I think 3 showers today.

IMO, parents have the most powerful immune systems of humans. Even if you're a shitter cleaner, you're not facing the germs and whatnot that a kid brings home on a daily basis.

I spend like 2hrs with my niece and I am sick for like 3 days :rofl: (pre covid)

That uh bug goin around they like for numbers has been startin out that way and then turnin to headaches sweats and yellow snot and drags on for like a month. I hope it ain't that man its already so much worse when they get sick when they're that little yet and you just gotta cuddle it out and bank on Tylenol pedialyte and no sleep

I used to get sick all the time, but the last two years, I've barely even had a sniffle. Not sure if it's because of the extra cleaning from covid. Hopefully my immune system is beefed up.

The powersteering pump was leaking a little bit. I bought a reman to replace it with... hopefully that was the right decision. I haven't had great luck with reman pumps. This is an ac delco reman though.

I just rented a pulley tool from oriellys. It worked great. Pretty easy.
Probably the way to go. I'm pretty sure some of the mess under mine is power steering but I've gotta see what this go around dried up yet

My puller tool requires a bit of help. That sleeve was way too big.
View attachment 86059
That's what mine looked like too. It didn't grab well on one side, but the other side of the clam shells were a bit different and I had no problems with it pulling the pulley off. Looks like you came up with a good idea though.

Next time you have a junk scissor jack, junkyard, or sitting around, cut off the thrust bearing and keep it in your toolbox it works great for installing police like that where you have to use a hole through the center and just press it on that way

I tightened two nuts today on the hydroboost mount plate. Maybe I can get the other two tomorrow.
Right in the feels. I've spent a fair amount of time in the shop today and still haven't brought myself to run a tap thru the header bolt I broke off
