I remember making sure my math was right in figuring out how far to drive the sleeve in so like you making sure the bearing would ride at the right spot. Instead of measuring twice & cutting once like I'm use to it was measuring several times & driving once. Lol Glad it worked out for you these things are a great.

Been using it and no dripping oil.


It now has the front axle from the 73' with bearings and 3 bolt wheels. A better steering wheel from the 73'. I ordered a nicker knob and chain tighteners. Should be good to go now.


Thank you Firefight100 for the tip. Saved a lot of work not having to replace the axle.
