    Heat makes it much easier, I don't even bother to try fighting with rusted bolts if I have blow torch.
    Also I need to replace tie rod end to my van next weekend. Didn't pass MOT.

      Hope you have an air impact gun handy.. Because those ball joints tend to just spin in place when you try to torque them down. Air impact gun will get the job done because hand tightening it will just spin it. Should be an hours job depending how rusty the ball joints are and if the cotter pin refuses to come out so you have to hammer it down to break it.

      Thank god my left ball joint is still passable for mot. But the hole in the center muffler is not.. Gonna just tape it with muffler tape.

          My birthday present arrived in the mail in German quality preciseness.






          What could be inside a box of such greatness?








          A sexy looking mittelschalldampfer auspuff.




          Ignore the vacuum sex in the background.. The blue one is.. "Sucked out"..

                Big motorcycles like harleys have V4 engines.. But indeed, very quirky and uncommon for cars.. Saab96 has the same V4 engine.

                    Oh that's right, it was honda who made the v4 engines. Also ducati and yamaha are honorable mentions.

                        Okay looks like photobucket wants to quit the business. So off to find a new imagehosting site. Any suggestions?

                        EDIT:

                        Going with imgur.
