Wud up everyone, I need to replace the rear u-joints in the pig sometime this winter but not sure which weekend? If anyone wants to come over to Casa de Romero and hang or help out that would be awesome. I don't think we have had a rebuild or replacement get-together for a while. This is also an opportunity for prospective members to get in a required event to join the club too. I'll throw it up on the calendar once I figure out a date and time.

UPDATE 3/15/2023 - Hey everyone, sorry that I haven't replied in a while and settled on a date. Unfortunately my job sucks major donkey B@!!$ and I have been working 60 hour weeks since January 1st and will continue like this through the end of May. I still plan on doing this but it may end up being a summer project instead.

4/24 - Alright, I finally have a date set. June 10th at noon. See the Rising Sun calendar.

Date & Time: June 10th at noon.

Location: Casa de Romero in Thornton

Depending on when you do this, I'd be interested in helping out. Great opportunity for me to learn!

I can come point at things and say "you're doing it wrong". 😁

Sounds good Ray, I didn't know you have a Pig? Is this a new purchase besides the 80? I look forward to Andy's wise guy critique!
he calls his 80 the Land Pig.

Literally just looked at a video on Ujoint inspection and replacement. I'm going to inspect my Ujoints when it warms up a bit so I might need to replace mine and would love to join at the casa and swap helping hands.

I call it the land pig or pig because it eats everything, gas, oil, tires, all of my disposable cash. Just about anything you can think of it will eat.

Just an update, I'll probably set up a Saturday in January after the holidays.
Good deal, I just got setup on general tools last week so now i feel a little more comfy about disconnecting my driveshafts to check for any u joint binding and being able to reassemble with proper torque. Definitely hoping all is good, no obvious driveline noises but I wouldn't be surprised as it looked like my grease points hadn't been hit in a very long time when I got them greased up several weeks ago.

I've been sitting on my u-joints longer than I care to admit. Interested AF.
