I feel your pain Brad.

I replaced the axle I broke last week while pulling out of my driveway and
also replaced the wheel bearings while I was at it. Drove to a friend's
house to put it on his lift to check for leaks, and found the front sway bar
had pulled both mountings out of the frame rails.  I guess it's time to
learn to use the welder a neighbor gave me.

So, last weekend, I replaced the axle. not that bad a deal, and rebuilt the
wheel cylinders while it was apart.
Got ready to go on a test drive, and there was no clutch. Got it bled, and
took it ofr a ride. All was well. Then, this morning, out in the car again.
Three blocks from the house, the clutch fails.
The White Post rebuild, fails yet again....
