I’ve always wanted to trade my pristine PV544 for a 1999 Sonic Blue R. Not a2000, I’ve heard too many issues

Is it time for a 1964 122 wagon?

Did I hear crickets calling for an update?

Well, this is not 122-related, but here was my fathers day progress.

Rear trailing arm bushings.
Drill them out.

Punch, grind, and tear the center sleeve out.

Cut the outer sleeve - carefully - with a hacksaw.

Chisel and bang and bash with punches - carefully - and get the damn thing to move!

Then round-file the bumps and gouges out of the insides, a little PB, some steel wool. I may need someone with a press to put the new ones in. Also got the rusted bolts out of the axle strap retainer / mount inside the rear wheelwells. Only 1 out of 4 snapped off!

Well done ! Always fun to remove pressed in parts with " basic " tools. At times I've felt like I might as well be using two stones and a bone to get things apart.
Finally bought a press off of Craigs a few years ago. Have yet to use it, but my jeep might need front U-joints soon.
Try to learn life's bad lessons vicariously through others.

You can fix a Land Rover with a crescent wrench and a rock!

After fretting and fretting over the quality of the cheap HF press, and bad reviews about how out of square they are, I looked around for a local machine shop. They're either set up for techie stuff or water jets, or they're just not interested in onesy-twosy jobs. Gas station guy won't use his press for outside work.

So I thought, Are we not Vikings?! Lets do this right - with HAMMERS!!

After filing the bores smoother and cleaning up rust, I steel-wooled and sanded the bushing shells vertically to get them clean and smooth. Mocked up some wheel bearing plates and disks from a set I have, some wood blocks, greased it all up and mad a few taps with a 2 lb hammer to get it seated straight. It went in straight! A few solid whacks and it went right in. As the bushing came close to the other side, I switched to spaced wood blocks and tapped it flush. So slick! We don't need no STINKING presses!!
