Poor Man's Mechanic Dilemma
Posted 16 August 2003 - 02:25 PM
When you don't have money, is when you really really want something bad for your sube, or... something needs to be replaced.
Such is life of the subaru mechanic.
so... jon's ordeal.
A while back (maybe a month and a half ago) I replaced both my boots on my passenger side axle. now the bands have come undone.
No tool to use, it gets frustrating. so what do I do? pay $5.00 for more grease, grease it up, and buy a $1.69 hose clamp. undo the sucker, put it on, and -sha-bam-boom- ghetto boot clamp, but works and is easy and cheap.
But I still *want* to get two new axles... I'd sleep easier at night.
If anybody cares for the heck of it, I'm sure I could get a pic.

These ties have a thin band of metal in them. Tough to break.
I worked in Corrections for the State of Va for six years and used them for the exact same reason. Never came loose in four years.
BTW the inmates used to say that they could break them.
Bound up many a pissed off inmate and never saw it.
