The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

Day 67 - 28 Chev Ute Restoration (14th November 2015)

Very happy with the progress made today.

New bearings were pressed onto the tailshaft, pinion and then the whole setup was fitted and locked with a split pin

Next task was cleaning out the old congealed grease and muck from inside the torque tube. This is where an extension for the rotary wire brush and an extension for the extension comes in handy

The diff adjustment threads were cleaned as was the gasket face.

A liberal spraying with degreaser followed by a high pressure wash left the inside of the torque tube as clean as a whistle
