The cost of technical services are on the rise and most of us cannot afford the price of an expensive last minute service call or car repair. This site will help guide you with some of our experiences and knowledge that Axel and I have acquired over the years. Become a Do It Yourself-er (DIY) and save some time and money. We repair our own home, cars, trucks, computers and more.
It's been going a little slow on pulling the engine from the S10 Blazer. I finally got some time today and pulled the intake manifold and both heads. This was hard to do today because it was a high of 27 degrees. My fingers are still numb.
I successfully designed and built a working 60 degree V6 Piston Wrist Pin press. It is a compact bench top model that works great. This will same me a lot of time and money over the course of doing multiple engine rebuilds. Take a look and let em know what you think.
The side project is the downfall to almost any project that the DIY's take on. You all know what I am talking about. The side project is the idea that comes up when you are working on something else. It is usually an attempt at a solution to a smaller problem that pops up. A great example of this is the piston pin press that I just built. I needed to removed piston from my connecting rods but wanted to do it myself. I had a bottle jack lying around and gave it a shot. It was a great success. See the posting of it with the video.
