    Camp....i was told that using graphite is the best way to keep these bearing properly lubed because the exhaust
    Has a tenancy of drying them out prematurely. Have you had any issues or what do you use

      If you go through a mud pit at a graphite mine, you never have to worry about lubrication again.

        Anyone ever have to replace a piston return spring on the Trail? Just wondering if I filled the johnson rod pocket with blinker fluid from the reservoir, would it work like a hydrolic spring, or would I risk rupturing the inner bladder of the Johson recepticle?

          I havent heard much about muffler bearings going bad, but i my particular jeep requires 2 transmissions. Apparently transmissions improve fuel economy? I saved by not getting a reverse function.

            Muffler bearings take a beating but the kanuter valvle wears out quick if not lubed with fur oil. And you have to constantly check the radiator cap on you Corvair, as they go bad ALOT! Also DO NOT forget your coolant constant velocity valve retainer and most important lug nut retaining springs!!!

              Forgot to mention I readjusted the nover trunion springs on the whizz spigot valves in the flux capacitor. It only took two minutes but now I can go above 88mph without my tires switching positions!

                  While throwing on my wheel spacers I noticed my kanukanuke seal leaking exhaust fluid. Got a new seal in, good to go!

                    I've been considering adding a wing on the roll cage to give me more traction in mud. How big should I go? Should it be aluminum or really heavy steel so it could act as a skid plate if I were upside down?

                      You need to run a bi-level wing for best results in the mud. Also, a carbon fibre one will add some more HP in the rocks

                        Does any of you know where I can get a heavy duty viscous clutch wire for the reverse gear on my auto gearbox?

                          Camp, my blinker fluid had metal flakes in it last time I changed it. I checked the pre-load in the pinon bearing for the light socket and it was too tight, but could not re-shim it to spec. Do I need a new socket, a new crush sleeve or do you have some other ideas ?
