Got the rest of the bolts off the old bearing assemblies (thought I'd shatter a wrench with the pipe extension needed to apply enough torque), and removed them...and definitely the decision to replace was good. Now awaiting the new bearings to come tomorrow evening to start re-assembly. The PVHs ought to work as original rather the rusted shut never used crap they were when I started. (the goal is to keep costs low, so NOT having to replace with manuals is less money....as long as they work...)

Hit 99,000 miles and went back to the Ford Dealer for a tune up. 99K and still running strong, I've replaced the ball joins about 2K ago and it has a slow leak in the power steering but beyond that hasn't had any problems.

The new bearings arrived, ready for reassembling the front end. Painted the new front brake shields, they were crying for something beyond sheet metal. Bought a dome light on eBay, after cursing the sniper who grabbed two other cheaper possibilities out from underneath me. Waxed the hood while waiting for the UPS shipment (they were late today, must have been a busy day).

Reassembled the front: new bearings and brake shields. Amazing to me, the wheels didn't fall off in the test drive and the brakes work fine. The PVHs locked in, too (probably first time in a very long time). Guess the various online how-tos were accurate, or at least executed OK on my end. Great to have the Ranger off jackstands. Saw that some dash bulbs are burned out tonight (first night op).

Drove it to a show about an hour away in Bristol, VT. A "Top 30" show--brought home a trophy. I have another one in Granville, NY tomorrow-going for 1st in class for 3rd year in a row in that one.

Got an alignment done. Dirt cheap, too. Steering wheel is now dead center and the front end doesn't shake anymore.

Now I just have to find the time somehow to get the clutch job done and it will virtually be a brand new truck :-)
