New Hubs for the Van and Some Other Puttering
Saturday April 8, 2023 Guerneville CA.
The wheel locking hubs on my van were pretty much worn out. I’d ordered up a new set awhile back and now it’s time to get them installed.
I removed the old ones from the van. I had a little trouble getting the snap rings and lock rings off, but some persistence paid off and I got the old hubs off.
Now it was time to install the new hubs.
I greased and installed the inter workings first.
Then I put the outer hub parts on and tightened them up. They look good and work well.
The next thing I did was to grease all the grease fitting on the front of the van which were on my list of things to do to the van.
Metal roof repair
After a good break I got the tools out to replace one of the metal sheets on the house roof that had rusted through.
They don’t rust like this on the roof, but I stored them on the ground a few years before I put them on the roof and when water gets between the sheets from the rain, they corrode badly. I could see they were bad when I installed them a number of years ago, but it’s what I had so used them anyway knowing they weren’t too good and might leak some day.
I screwed the nice new green one down and that was done.
The view from the roof of the nice blue sky and shiny sun.
And a view of the yard from the house roof.
I was pretty sure I’d put a choke cable on the old Toyota a long time ago, but I’d forgotten which knob to use to activate the choke. I had a look under the hood and tried knobs until I found the one I’d fixed up for the choke. It still worked so now I had a choke to get it started which should be real helpful.
The rest of the day I spent chair hopping with the chickens.
