Thanks guys. We are getting a lot of rain here finally. So this all works out great for me. @Blu eflame I hope this doesn't turn into another Fury. Odds are the Ranchero will once I get to start back on it. @ Steve C, Once the front is done. The rear will be next. The guy I got the wheel from also has a rear wheel if needed. I think my back wheel was in a lot better shape than the front is. @ Squidchief, that was pretty good. I almost feel like that could be me some times. I am going to get the new seals put in this afternoon. I had to get new bushings for the forks. I tried installing one of the old ones and it did not want to go in so easy. So, I bought a seal installer. With the help of the old bushing. I will be able to use the installer for the bushings as well. Should be a simple task now. I am going to take the front wheel down in a bit to have the tire pulled off it. That way I can get the sealer put on it. I want to give it the full 7 days to cure before I put the new tire on. I also have to call Chaparral. If you notice in the tire picture. I have 2 front tires there. Some one made a mistake and sent me 2. I only paid for one. So I want to return the un paid one. I got one tire on thursday and the other on friday. I am sure it was an honest mistake over there.
Well, back to work. it is kind of nice being able to do most of this in the house where I don't have to clean up after each step. I can leave my stuff out when I take a break.

Where at "near Santa Barbara"?

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.

I was adopted out of Santa Barbara and lived in Lompoc for a number of years. My dad worked at FCI.

On the tractor forum we call that "Mission Creep"...
Start on one simple project and just keep going with a bunch of them ...

It has changed a lot over the years. it is slowly growing. I liked it better back in the 70s Once my bike is back on the road. I will have to take a ride your way. maybe meet up for lunch or some thing if you are up to it.

I haven't heard that term before captain. But it sounds accurate.
