  Hello again everyone. It's been a while since I up dated here. We are on a new page again, Page 72. We are waiting for a few things, first, the engine being re built. Remember, I have another engine, and this one is in the shop for rebuilding. I have to wait in bwtween other jobs before they finish. Mine, other job, mine. And so forth.

  In between, I have been working on the ods and ends things to and for the car. Not finished yet, but we are making progress. Shame I don't have a lift, or even a engine stand. But, in time, all will be better, not that it's bad, but, better. So, here's whats going on.

  Oh, I almost forgot... If I talk different, thats because I have no teeth anymore. They are all gone. Dentures?. Maybe some day. Radio again?. No, those DJ days are gone forever.

  I wanted to get more different angles, even on the front cameras. I built this camera mount. It can be used on front and back seat. Hopefully, later, I am planning on HD cameras too. But, that will be when I get more money.

  Remember the brake pedal squeaked?. Like, a lot. I greased up all the moving parts there.

  And, yes, the ride. This time in Wildwood, on the Sunday of the weekend car show. But, not many, It rained all weekend except Sunday. Not many, in this years show. The end of the summer show should be better, unless it rains again.

  I sent him a bunch of pictures, high resolution, and different angles. he selected the one's he wanted to use.

Comment:
  He even noted the first owner's engine swap to a 200ci. I wonder how many other people has the 170 6?. Or even the 200 6. I suppose the 170's are all toasters by now popping up toast with butter and jelly. I am looking for that engine. Will I find one?. Hmmm, maybe.

Comment:
  Showing the differance between the plain and 500 series fairlane 500. Sweet!. This summer I do plan to try my hand at making a padded dash. I have the old one in several peices. They are going to be my guide. That video should be a good one. Fail or pass.

Comment:
  He even mentioned me re doing the seats with a 1932 sewing machine!. before attempting the seats, I practiced with the sewing machine for several days.

  Well, I have a lot to report in this entry. Seems like every year plans get changed by unexpected events. The engine won't be done this summer, and we have to do the bearings ourselves. Something I am not set up to do. The floor of the booth is vinyl over dirt. But, with some extra TLC, we can use the booth to remove the axels and do the work necessary to change the bearings and oil seals.

  The engine is over there in parts, and going to be waiting for the fall. Hopefully, then the car will see the newer rebuilt engine. For this summer, it's the one in there.. The rear bearings are a different story. So, we do it. We removed the axels, oil seals. Have the new bearings installed on the axels. All going well, but, I am looking for the correct oil seals.

  The shop is in Wildwood, New Jersey. Bob Christman, of H.B. Christman and Son, performes the work on our 1962 Ford Fairlane 500 rear wheel axles. They have been in business for a long time. They know the parts, have the equipment. 609-522-2480.

Comment:
  Before we start the bearings, we have to get some dirt under the front wheels and level better. Then, while we are out here, let's put some more block down for the driveway.

Comment:
  There is a procedure to do first to the axels. In the lock ring, we need to drill about half way, a hole for hammering the ring off.

Comment:
  Using a chisel and a hammer, we hit the ring in the hole to loosen and come off.

Comment:
  With a special jig connected to the press, we use lot's of force to press on the new bearing. (Compression bearings) and the lock rings. The seals go behind the lock ring into the axel tube. That will be in the next video Part 2.

  The rear bearings are done and in!. We did it!. Had a problem finding the oil seals, but finally, I did find them at NAPA. They are a replacement not the same from 1962 design. But, seem to do just as good. There are a few other things I also need to do, small things. I will have pics and video on those too. But, for now, here's some pics and a video also.

Comment:
  Removed the old gear oil from the diff. Dirty, and from 1962 I am sure. Quite black. But, new oil was also put in, and all sould be good after this.

Comment:
  After removing the axle and seals, we scrape off the old gasket material for a new gasket. Basicly, just a dust gasket, as the bearings are self sealed.

Comment:
  Now, time to install the new oil seals. Thses seals are SKF 13875 available from NAPA. Autozone, auto parts warehouse, does not have them. They are a direct replacement and do a good job. Just remember to install them evenly.

Comment:
  After also cleaning out the grime from around the bearing seats, before we install the seals, then, install seals, we re install the axels with the new bearings pressed on.

Comment:
  Do not use any hammers. Just use your palm, hand in pushing them in. If the bearing houses, is cleaned out good, they will push in without any problems.
