The top tool gets clamped in a vise by the channel iron and then the secondary clutch is compressed by the little bar stock with the bolts. It goes on the tall machine bolt.

The 2nd tool is designed to hold the driven clutch stationary while loosening the center nut.

NO!!! but me and the parts guy got a good laugh out of the asking price.

TW ~ going to try to make a small vise style clamp with some flat iron and see how it goes.

It's always a learning experience, plus it's also better then paying someone else to do it.

Well I'm really glad I own a large 3/4" socket set assortment,
it's reall y come in handy for more stuff then it's designed for.

A socket on the top edge of the ball joint and a larger size
underneath for the threads and boot to go through & clear.
A Craftsman 6" C-clamp and a few light hammer taps.

I'm making progress... cheers

New ball joints installed


Upper ball joint pressed down through upper A-arm w/ cir-clip


Lower ball joint pressed down through lower hub assembly

With all the Grizzys in this group it is nice to know someone has experience in these type of repairs. Wink

Thanks for the info.

I know what you mean about lack of patience. Mad
There are times I have to just walk away for a bit.

Today was filter & oil change "day" for the Grizz including the front and rear diffs.
The Ol' Red Honda got a new filter and oil change plus clean air filters all around.

Also added some new headlight bulbs to the Grizzly from Sylvania, looking forward to trying them out.

They are a bear for sure. That always seems to be the hardest part of putting wheel bearings in though.
