Deck is on hold for a few days, I had to take a couple days off from work to replace the lower front end in my Camry. Yes I'll re-set the jack stands in the morning, It was getting dark this evening.

1/2 way there with the Camry project. You can only imagine how this clunked and drifted at 75 mph.  Need the shade from the shop to do the other side this evening.

Straps work great for all kinds of stuff they shouldn't.

Camry project is done for now, Need an alignment. Have to fix a sink drain tomorrow, and put a used starter gear on BOH as a temp fix. Good thing I took two days off from work. Hope to get back on Little John's deck soon.

OK, Back to the subject! Cleaned up the deck parts and masked the decals. Will pick up the snap rings tomorrow. Some sanding, washing again, Paint and grease are next. Belts will be later, have to spread the funds out. Grandson will be here this weekend, we will go for a ride to town. Pictures and Video to come.

We headed to town around noon with the plan to spend an hour at the park and return, Plan changed when we found a Car show going on. Come to find out the Oglesby Church was celebrating it’s 125th Birthday. Bounce House, Magic show, and BBQ. Grandson met up with a few friends he hasn’t seen for a while. We didn’t leave till 6:00. OH, it was an enjoyable ride, no close calls or issues. Great day for both of us.

Little Buddy has went home, so I turned my attention back to the deck. It seems JD assembled then painted. I have found several "runs" of thick paint especially on the frame. Sense I am out of Yellow right now I decided to make the pulleys and "sharpened" blades black. Bolts and springs will be the usual silver. Should look good.

Little confused about what they are saying in step 5 and 7, "Make sure land riding seal of bearing is away from hub."

What is the land riding seal of bearing? I tried Google but still confused as to what they mean.
