    Fixed the fuel gauge in the red car today. In the 6 years I've owned this car, it's never once had a working fuel gauge. This sure is weird...

      Seriously, fuck rear wheel bearings. That was way more of a bitch than I figured it would be.

        I need to do one on the rear of a e34, not excited at all.

        did you have the tools or did you rent them to press it out and in?

            Borrowed the tools from a friend. Saved my ass tho. Lol. Idk how I would've done it without them.

              I did the shitty pound town method on one bearing, before breaking down and getting the FWD bearing press from harbor freight, been a breeze since.. Even redid the "pound town" one for peace of mind

                I did them on the e36 recently, I put it off for two long and it got the point of requiring a torch, 10 foot pipe, a pair of saw horses, 3" tie down straps and 4 dudes to get the axle out of the hub.

                  Anyone know of a place to get my MegaSquirt dyno tuned by someone in the Seattle area?
                  Finishing up my turbo build, and since it'll be seeing track time, I want to make sure its tuned right.

                    A guy I used many years ago was RalleyTuned, found him on Vortex. He did the tuning on my big turbo c900 when it was on MS.

                      For that price at HF I could afford a stand up press, Which I feel if I pull the whole trailing arm out I could use that easier(?) but they should also for $50 more I could go from a 12 ton to a 20 ton, Think I should spend the extra $50?

                            You're sick. Drink heavily instead. You'll feel better the next morning.

                              Sure but then you have to pull the entire trailing arm out. Time is $
