    Also, when assembling. Measure everything! Lol

    I have a bunch of precision measuring equipment. Dial Bore indicator. Depth indicators. Micrometers, spring pressure indicators. Etc. Etc. As I was on a venture to start doing builds myself. Been over a year now and my first build (not the one in my car) for a "customer" to get me started still hasnt made it's way into the car so I scrapped those plans.

    If you want to use or borrow any of it lmk and I can ship them out to you.

    Update

    The motor is out !!! Was able to get the motor out yesterday with @deldran help. Was pretty much problem free. Just had to unhook a few bits here and there. I used @CMajor idea to make a tool to pull the axle and it worked well on the passenger side. Passenger side axle pretty much fell out of the hub and had antisieze on it so it was likely done before. I was still unable to get the driver side out of the knuckle so I just cut the boot and ripped it in half. I bought a 20 ton press and will go to town on it. It is not nearly as rusty as I thought it would be in the bay which is nice.

    Forgot to add the shop press. Will take pics when assembled, it is very very heavy.

    Yay buying tools! Glad you finally got it out, now the long process of getting it back in begins.
