I have not been around here much, but came back today to see how things were going. It is nice to see your SX4 on the road again! I have been crazy busy working on these Mercedes-Benz Diesels, and have been on those forums. I don't have an Eagle anymore, and I sure do miss having one. One day maybe I will get another one.....Rich

Holy Crap!!   I've swapped out loads of pinion seals over the decades, and have never run into one like that!!    Maybe one of those 3/4" drive earthquake guns??

Good luck with it!

I will definitely have to look and see if I can find that. The radiator is being recored now and it would be nice to know that I wasn't putting junk in it when I put it back in. Thanks for the idea! I need all of them I canget. I've never tried to go through a car that's been sitting before....

You fellows won’t believe this: I’m trying to remove the rear yoke nut to replace the pinoin oil seal on my Gremlin. It’s been there for 41 yrs. I’ve tried a portable electric lug gun which has done the eagle @ 120 lbs torque but I realize I'm dealing with over 200, pneumatic air gun @ 120 lbs, breaker bar with extended pipe to the floor for leverage, proto heavy duty torque wrench reversed direction, careful but solid hammer blows to the breaker bar, map gas heat applied for 10 - 20 min a few times, penetrating oil, I’ve gotten on the floor and braced myself and pushed the breaker bar with my legs as well as pulled it with both arms from the other side. My next idea is to line up the nut with the skid plate of the Eagle & to run a hand hoist with hooks between both cars. If I put tension on it for a couple of days it may loosen it up if it doesn’t strip the bolt first.

I see you're doing a complete job. You didn't mention pulling the engine block drain plug however. If you have any rust in the block you'll see it come out immediately from there. All three of my cars have hex. head drain plugs for ease of removal.

hey guys it's been a little while since I last posted and I figured I'd give you a little bit of an update on what's been going on with Eagleeyes. Since my last update I have installed two 6 inch LED light bars on the front bumper, as well as four brand new mud flaps that I painted the word Eagle on in white lettering that is in Eagle script (don't ask me how long that took to accomplish). I have also replaced both hatch hinges and have also installed a f150 tac where my none working clock was. I also had to replace both front brake calipers after breaking off both bleeder screws.  ::) I then replaced the entire driverside front hub because when the machine shop I took the old one to went to press the new cones for the bearings in they just kind of dropped in with no pressure applied to them.  ???
