Re: Got One - Now the VIN search

I took my Texas title down to the Tennessee title office and 15 minutes later walked out with a new Tennessee title transferred to my name. Glad I left California years ago.

Re: Question? Peened inner front wheel bearing

I used a Dremel tool to slit it almost to the spindle. Then hit the slit with chisel and split it enough to slide it off. I then cleaned up axle as Brent recommended.
