Re: OT: Anyone recently replace their muffler bearings

HEY!!!! I can post again. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] We went offroading on sunday, and this truck that our 4x4 club beats on blew the driveshaft. We fixed it with duct tape!! Yup, the ujoint went flying somewhere as the driveshaft rolled down the hill so we the truck pushed it off the hill and temporarily fixed the driveshaft with duct tape. One thing that duct tape doesnt stand up to too well is a fair bit of torque [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] but it served its temporary purpose.
Hehehe check it out, Tim changed my signature.

Re: OT: Anyone recently replace their muffler bearings

you know when after a while you start to hear a ticking noise and rumble from you mufflers. That is a sign they are going bad. Make sure every oil change you greese the muffler bearings and they should last for a real long time. Here is a site that you can purchase muffler bearings and other such parts: http://www.kalecoauto.com/

Re: OT: Anyone recently replace their muffler bearings

Don't use grease on muffler bearings, it collects dust and
wears them out.

The best lubricant is turn signal flasher oil, hard to get,
but since it works so well it's worth the effort. You've
never ever head a turn signal get that grinding roaring
noise from bad bearings have you?

I think Autozone may be able to order it.
