Wikoff, thanks for the picture. That'* exactly what I needed to see and cleared it right up in my mind! Thanks to Bill Boost, i ordered the needle bearings and now have to figure out where to get the brass threaded rod with the grease nipple doo-hickey!

I'll get this car on the road yet....can't say when but it will happen!!!

Coming to a gathering near you sometime in the future!!!

BillBOOST? I think you have your Bill'* mixed up.

Go to a plumbing store for the nipple and grease fitting. Or even Home Depot.

My apologies Willwren. You told me about replacing the needle bearings. Bill Boost gave me the web site and offered to send me the needle bearing he has on hand. Forgive me???

Thanks to your post, Willwren, I have all the info needed to take on this task. I'm going to read your instructions a couple of times before I make the attempt. Thanks again.

Sorry Willwren...forgot to get my wife to edit my typing. You're right...I meant bearing"*"

Geez, maybe I should quit while I'm behind. I just realized how many times I've apologized! Sorry!!! (oops, there I go again!)

Patience was never my strongest virtue... Unfortunately it'* taking a lot longer than I thought. I know, I know...baby steps! Maybe if I just say "Abracadabra!"

Never rush a SC rebuild. Take your time.

You forgot my last post stating "Patience was never my strongest virtue" but I will take your advice even though my 16 year old son it driving me crazy to get the 95 on the road since he is getting his G2 drivers license on JUNE 15 for those that don't live in Canada we have graduated license and a G2 will allow you to drive on your own.
