Oof.  Well if that was me, I’d apply a little heat ( don’t wanna fry the PS pump seals) and put two mechanics pry bars in between the steel brackets and the pulley and rock it off.  Visualize two largest flat head screwdriver shafts slid down on either side of the ps shaft.  Might need a tap to make sure it’s not Read more

Inflation’s a bitch. Cars cost more because money is worth less. Over the last 20 years, inflation has made the costs of goods rise approximately 50%, so today’s $30k car was a $20k car 20 years ago. Read more

Do you know what condition that Chevelle was in when he started the project and how much work, and how much of his income, went in to getting it where it is? Do you know how long that guy had to work and save to buy that Corvette? They may not be special to you but they are special to their owners and that’s all that Read more
