Maintenance Write Ups


I tried my best to document as much as possible along with pictures.  I hope you find them useful. However, do use the information provided here "as-is". does not warrant or assume any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information, or process disclosed.  Use the information at your own risk.


I am assigning the difficulty of different write ups. ' Easy' means just that; if you can read and follow direction, that is pretty much all that is required.  'Medium' difficulty rates those jobs that if done wrong could cause serious problems and it may require some grunt work such as loosening a couple of stubborn bolts or nuts.  Any level above 'Medium' difficulty should be undertaken with precaution, as it could cause serious damage to the vehicle.  'Hard' means a lot of grunt work and working with heavy parts that cannot be handled without a jack or a partner.  'Very Hard' would be like installing ring and pinion gears, rebuilding an engine block or swapping an engine.
