Re: Trailing Arm Bushings Bolt Right In...

Well, the flu bug put me out of commission from Monday to Thursday. I tried to work Thursday, got 1/2 hour in and deflated - couldn't go any more. Friday was a better story: I got the thing done. First, the new bushings and sleeves were the correct ones. I used the 1/2" bolts clamped in the vise to ...

Re: Ceramic coating

Mike, You axin' me about small block parts? No idea... I use the Victor Reinz on my two cars, but don't know if that's good for the small block. Wade's gone, sadly.

Re: Ceramic coating

Mike,

Clearly engine porn :-c

Craig did the headers for the Zephyr. Three times: long story, not his fault.

The work was good and the price competitive.

I don't know how they have held up; haven't seen them since they were installed :))

Are yours stainless? They kinda look like it.

Trailing Arm Bushings Bolt Right In...

When I was under the car prior to the Reptile Roundup tightening bolts and inspecting things, I found the Jaguar IRS trailing arm bushings were beginning to crumble.
