The dirtiest job of all

 

 

 

Replaced Syd’s CV joints (these take the power from the engine and drive the rear wheels; interestingly they allow the axle to move in any direction while wheels spin). The rubber boots almost always roach after 30-40 years. Dirtiest job yet. Joints are packed with molybdenum grease, black and slippery. Turn things the wrong way and all the ball bearings fall out.

    Hi there DrD–Patient at COE (Bob Brody) and ERFYT follower since first edition of first book.

    And to the point–owner/operator of a 1950+ Kharmann Ghia (British Tan, convertible) when in HS and college 1960’s. Wish I still had that car.

    I am having so much fun with kdf20. Following your restorations and this blog site gives me so much pleasure. Guess I’ve always been a car geek of sorts. Living vicariously. Thank you for giving me/us a peek into this part of your life.
