65: Monday 9th November 2009

I still had 1 drive shaft attached to the wheel end , so I set about cleaning up the the CV joint. All the usual wiping and degreasing went on. The idea was to use some time on Tuesday to install the Gearbox at least onto the drive shafts. Once I had cleaned the CV joint I greased it all again and as I pulled the rubber boot to close it up, it split in two halves. So that was that. I went online and ordered a new boot, but now I have to take the driveshaft out at the back of the wheel so I can get the boot on. It will be easier to clean this on the bench with it all off and then with the new boot it will be ready for the weekend to fit the gearbox and then the motor and then I'm back on track.
