Update!

Postby ZTrac » Fri Jun 08, 2007 10:22 pm

So, just posting an update to my project. As Alltracshoak knows, I've been working on my ST185 on and off for a few months now. I haven't had anything else requiring my attention today, so I've been on the Celica all day long so far. So let's see what I've managed to get done so far.

Radiator: out

Harness: out

Center pipe: out

Front wheels: off

Left spindle nut: off

Right spindle nut: 2 hours and counting, and STILL NOT OFF!!

I don't know what the hell I'm doing wrong. I checked the threads to make sure I'm loosening it the right way, and sure that's correct. I've got a 24" breaker bar and a 30mm spindle nut socket. The left one took a little muscle but loosened up like expected. But this right one...boy, that sucker's really torqued on there!

Seriously, I've tried even jumping up and down on the breaker bar and it still won't come loose. I even got a cheater bar for the breaker bar.

Thinking I might have to step up to a 1" drive breaker bar, somewhere around maybe 40" long.

But hopefully I'll have the CV shafts out by tonight, and the propeller shaft overnight...

And then the only thing standing between me and the block coming out should be the engine mounts, unless I'm forgetting something from the book.

Post pics soon.

Finally got the axle nut off about 10 minutes ago. Had a friend come over with his 4' breaker bar and He-Man it.

And now I find that both of the tie rod ends are torn...time for new ones.
