Admittedly, I have not had the time to spend in the garage so far this summer as I would like.. Unfortunately, as happens too often, life gets in the way.
But this past weekend I finally got to spend some ‘me’ time doing what I love the most, wrenching on real musclecar’s. My brother in law needed a little work on his 69 Nova.. He needed a ball joint replaced and had a problem in the charging system.
When it comes to GM muscle cars, I have always believed in replacing all 4 at the same time (unless of course any have been recently replaced). Turns out the one that was worn to the point of being a safety concern, was an aftermarket unit.. the other 3, which were showing only a minor amount of wear, were the factory joints! I was shocked to say the least!
