Got the brakes back together today and started cutting off the old bearings and spacers. Hope to finish prepping the parts tomorrow and hopefully going to get a Harbor Freight hydraulic press next week.

I list this site as my inspiration to boldly do things I've never done before concerning machinery.

Another first for me and I just had to share...

Saw a leak running down the inside of one of the tires... bad seals on the axles. Removed the rear brakes and axles on my Jeep. And found out why the parking brake wasn't working. Some of the RR brake parts were swimming around inside the drum.

Nice looking YJ. Those Hi-Lift jacks are a very useful tool.

Finally got the Jeep today. Didn't tow the boat with it yet as it needs some attention, but can't wait to work on another project!

This is not mine but it is a picture I saved to inspire me on what a carb should look like for the next time I rebuild one...
