Fixing Everything

I have fixed more stuff in the last two days.  My big item was the front, passenger wheel bearing on the Lesabre.  Of course, everything changes now.  That is a product of having too long a memory.  The last time I changed a wheel bearing, we were wearing our sideburns long and cars went fourteen miles to the gallon. 

Now, with front wheel drive, things are different.  I think the job might almost be easier to do.  You don't have to pack grease in the bearings anymore, and who can forget to fun of dropping the small parts of the bearings in the dirt.  Now, you have one big assembly. 

The old job cost about ten bucks. The new one is four hundred and sixty.  Hummm.

Have a great day
