[QUOTE=How does one remove a nut that has been stripped with a crescent wrench? [/QUOTE]

TIG weld the wrench to the nut first, then it will work.

Seriously though, they have several wrenches at Sears, K-mart and Walmart along with most auto parts stores that clamp down harder on the nut the more you put pressure on the wrench.

They look like these :Grip Wrench The ones I bought are solid though.

Yeah I'm privy to all that but some recent bank transfers were 4 days late so I thought I had some dime when I didn't and now I'm $9 in the hole until Thursday.
So no fancy tools.

So like when we get there I am the only one with "money" and I end up paying for both of us because I'm the ninja and so cool.

That transfer is still pending too, so when it clears I'm sure I'll be slapped with a ~$30 overdraft fee.
My month just won't be complete without another one of those.

:/

I did not like what thi mod did to my car... had a good friend ship me some as I have none around here. Upon installation I found the car to be much more responsive. When I took it on the highway, it made a very deep vibration that I did not like anywhere from 70mph and up. Maybe I will give it a try again with the new X-member

Tom, I just now got a chance to do a 100mph+ run, and I had no vibrations related to the crossmember mod.
I do have a rear bearing howling, but other than that it was fine.

BTW, the hood now has the buffers installed, (those two screw in rubber bumpers that contact the radiator support), but not the three hood gaskets, and it was rock solid at 100+.

Good news on the hood... Like I said, maybe I will reinstall them when I get my X-member finished. Still need to thinka bout what I am gonna do about a hood for the ride down. I think A lot of tape may help

I can see it now;
Why yes Officer it IS a cardboard hood, it was designed by a NASA engineer, to lighten the car for, for, for better gas milage!
If you don't believe me, just call him at the NASA Research and Development, Special Vehicles Center.

It is legal to drive with no hood as long as there are no exposed fans... Since we all have electric fans with shrouds.. I have no probelms...

another part number

I know this is an older thread but I've been reading through it and the other one about making custom bushing spacers out of sheet material. I just went down to the local part stores and found two of the steering couplers. Autozone had Help! part #31005 which looks pertty much identical to the #31000 I got at Robbins. However, the superfluous hardware that comes with the bushings is different between the kits. The 31000 is for "domestic" vehicles and the 31005 if for "Ford" vehicles. This makes me wonder if there might be any other part numbers that have the same bushing in them.

I have used both spacers with identical results, but the 31000s are a buck cheaper.

It's been a few months, any more observations with the mod?

Jon and I were removing his rear diff. Referring to the diff cross member, Jon said, 'Is that supposed to move around like that?" I replied, 'svxfiles didn't think so either!'.

I have no complaints. It definitely makes the car fell more sure footed in turns and more responsive. Nothing bad to report on this mod at all.
