    This is good stuff. I have one of these to do someday. I replaced my original way back when good used ones were still available. $35.00 well spent. The original is stored in the basement.

    I don't have those tools but have you checked with Auto Zone or O'Reilies? I know that they have loanout tools for many operations. A valve spring compressor is common enough that I would think they...

    My '65 had slop in the ring and pinion. It didn't howl but there was excessive backlash. For a clunk upon accel and decel I'd first check the u-joints then the differential. Get it in the air and...

    I have toured ACI and they make a quality product. It isn't that far for you to travel to check out their facility. I'm sure they would like to show you around.
