  1. Thank you for your advices! Victory! I sprayed penetrating oil on the top of the ball joint, and then pressed it out with success. My chinese tool didn't like it very much... Now it's bushing time!
  2. Unfortunately I don't have a fork and because of confinement, everything is closed out there. I'm just afraid to wrap or bend the knuckle if I hit it too hard. What are your thought?
  3. Actually I used that tool without success Here is the stuck ball joint. I'll try to soak it with penetrating oil. Also I can try to heat it up as I have removed the boot and most of the grease.
  4. I'm in the process of replacing all bushings and ball joints on the front control arms. Lower ball joint is stuck in the spindle. I tried hammering it, and then I bought a ball joint removal tool and it did not move at all. I have a 12tons shop press, but I'm afraid to break or bend the spindle if I use the press. Any advice on how to remove it? Thank you
  5. Thank you! For those interested, here is the part number on Inline Tube website ($145) : CMB7102
  6. Hi, I'm looking for quality brake line, from proportioning vale to flex hoses for my 72 Monte. I want to avoid Chinese crap. Do you have any recommendations ? Thanks for your help !
  7. Tim, I know you posted in July, but is your fuel tank still available?
  8. Thank you for your answers. Referring to Bruce's picture (Fig. 41), my guess is the problem might be the separator assembly... Anyway, I'll drop the tank this weekend and check hose routing. Thanks !
  9. My Monte is currently not running, or at least I don't drive it anymore because I'm in the process of rebuilding brakes and front-end. Anyway, today I tried to start the engine and as usual I poured a bit of gas in the carb because bowl where dried. The engine started and the pump never managed to send gas... The culprit was my fuel tank! It look like that has a bit collapsed over the time and fuel sending unit is unable to pick fuel. My Monte doesn't have fuel canister anymore however the vent line is still "open". Does anyone has an idea why it's doing this??? Should I buy I new tank?
  10. I have seen too many engine bay painted that way on Craigslist and the seller claiming that the engine as been rebuilt recently. Well, if the rebuild as been done the same way the engine was painted, it won't last long
  11. Apologies ... I did not tried hard enough because I was afraid to scuff piston or wrist pin. It was hard to engage but then slide right in.
  12. They are stock Gen4 rods. It looks like stock floating rods (Gen4) accept .943 pins, but I'm not sure.
  13. Hi, I bought a set of used flat top pistons (Gen4) for my 5.3 (Gen3) and also a set of Gen 4 connecting rods. Pistons came with wrist pin that seems to be the wrong diameter (.945). Also, wrist pin do not fit my Gen 4 connecting rods. Does anyone know the diameter of Gen 4 wrist pin? Should I buy new one in .927 diameter? Thanks!
  14. Welcome from France Bernd. Post pics of your Monte
