I'm in a pickle. :o. I have leaky seals on the front of the Hilux so I tore into the knuckles today. I wanted to replace bearings while I was in there but I can't get the trunion bearings to line up to get the knuckle on. I don't have the SST to hold the bearing. I've done this on my cruisers without the tool and never had a problem getting them to tap back in. Any suggestions on how to re-assemble this, or does someone have the SST?

Wife is already boiling that I spent all day and it isn't even 1/2 done.

Never mind.

Stepped away for a few minutes, came back and then tried again. All went together easily this time.

:p: :wrench:

I would stock up on supplies to make the wife some Long Island Ice Teas...

Yeah, that might help. Probably should know by now that if I think I can finish a project in an afternoon, it's actually going to take me two or three. ;)

Hey, you wrench just like I do!

My latest endeavor involved promising the :Princess: I would take her out to dinner on Saturday. In the meantime, I had something I wanted to do on the Pig that would "just take me a couple of hours".

She looked out in the garage at 5 wondering if we were still going to go... :rant:

OMG this is so familiar. Tonight my wife comes home and I am working furiously on installing a GFI receptacle in the bathroom. I apologized and explained that I had expected to be done long before she got home but there were some unexpected issues with the install that had come up. She didn't know what a GFI was or why we needed one, she just knew that she couldn't use that bathroom right then while I was working on it.
