Pump BRT-001

As I reported earlier I had to make a special tool to remove the final two bushings. Here it is.

Headed back to the shop to get those last two bushings. Life will be a lot easier with the handy dandy PUMP BRT-001.

I feel like I just made a few things like that myself.

Only it took 3 times as long was harder to do and Mine sucked. lol

So, what is it for exactly? How will you use it?

It is an extra deep holesaw, so you can drill the center out of the bushing out. In the case of the pumpkin bushings there are two that can only be accessed from on side. The Pumpkin BRT-001 allows you to drill out the hole bushing in one shot. It worked mint and saved me the struggle of hacking it out. Pic's to follow.

Final Push.

Well I had to call a hault to the Pumpkin suspension project due to technical problems. ie: hate to struggle. The Pump BRT-001 worked perfectly as planned.

Well it finally time to put the suuspension project on the done list. Picking up the BMR endlinks today, but that's a quick job to change them out. Thanks to all who helped with the project.

just need a weather window to get Pumpkin to the alignment rack and looks to be happening mid next week.

It's now beer thirty.

Had a bit of orange paint leftover from my track air tank. Thought it was only fitting.

See you later today with your BMR goodies. Hitting the border at nine.

Weather taking a turn for the worse now. Snowing like crazy right now. Mid week trip to the alignment shop is probably out of the question.
