Wheres the pix...........I never seem to take any and worse ,I need help from my daughter to put them up. I have been here many years and never posted a picture. If I ever spend the time and get it figured ,the internet may have a brown out as I start sending a decade worth of back up shots. And then I would get even less done in the shop. I am taking this computer to a friend for a tuneup and maybe he can get me schooled on the pictures thing.

When you click on reply, the next bold print under that is "add an attachment". You click on "choose file" which will allow you to look through your computer files until you find the desired pic. As long as the file isn't too large, you doubleclick on the pic file and it will be listed in the next box under choose file. You click "add attachment" and it should list it under that. You hit submit and you're done. There are several addins that allow you to right click on a pic and resize it if it's too large for the forum rules.

Did you get any type of a message? Did you hit load attachment before you submitted it?

Right click on the picture, click on properties, and see if the picture exceeds the allowed size.

I use Irfanview to resize my pics to post here. http://www.irfanview.com/
It's free and you can resize pictures among other things that it will do. I resize pixs to 640 x480 pixels and they load here fine. Tom...

I read somewhere that some of the light duty GM caliper brackets are bending under heavy braking. One user had them on a buggy and was doing some brake steering. The brackets didn't survive. With your light weight you may not have an issue.

At that point, on my computer, I would run a malware scan. You might check your security settings too.


honestly, you have exceeded my knowledge of computers, neither of the steps above can hurt, but they may not help.

I have a program on my computer called team viewer. My son has it on his computer too. When I run into a problem I don't understand, I get him on the phone, and he logs into my computer with a password that changes every time we use it. I have to give him the correct password. He can the see what the problem is by watching what I am doing. If need be, he can take control of my computer to fix it. Some times I can fix it myself with his directions, sometimes he has to do it. I get called an idiot a lot, but I am used to it. Shocked I have the free version.

removed my wheel studs from the hubs today. They are swedged /peened over on the front side to lock the drum in place. If I had just pressed them out I would have ruined the hubs . Put the hubs in the mill after sawing off the studs and milled the back side of the studs off ,then pressed them out the front. A pain and time consuming to say the least. I found a wheel stud that should work well Papco 560-173 code fr . it is .002 larger on the knurl than the stock ones and should give me 1.1" of useable thread past the rotors . My wire wheels are 1/2" thick at the bolt flange so I will have 5/8" of thread out past the wheel face. Also machined the notches into my kingpins a few days ago . I need to put grease grooves into my spindle bushings and then I can assemble my front end back into the car .Steering mounts for my home made unisteer next !

put my steering arms on the spindles today. Econolines have a press in arm with a threaded stud retainer and a flat edge to line up to. Had 2 of my students help with the job. It was a good experience for them to help plan out the setup so the cooled parts were pressed in without running around in a panic looking for press fixtures while the frozen part warmed up. The parts fit nice and look really nice if I say so myself. If I have calculated right , based on inside spindle turning angle the car should have a curb to curb turning radius of about 38'.

couldn't post pix of students if I wanted . School division requires waivers /permission from parents to any photos or use of name attached to photo. But I get your point , I will have to figure out the photo thing one of these days.
