    Rear Disc Brakes for a Sunbeam Alpine! Tiger?

    I had to get a longer stud for my dana 44 rear end with Dan's disc brake kit. My calipers were about 2 mm from touching the back of the wheel. I just drove out the old studs with a hammer. I didnt damage the hub in doing so. I then took one of the old studs with me to the autoparts store and...

    1964 series 3 302 automatic

    1964 series 3 302 automatic

    You may get that miracle. I have known a few folks including my wife and my mom that have had very good outcomes from shoulder surgery. Some rotator cuffs, and some joint replacement.
