To be sure! I'd love to have one (because when you need one you really need one) but just don't have space for something that is used that infrequently. :(

Keep in mind it can be used for a lot more than pressing bearings. It can be used as a press brake for bending metal if you make a die and press for the angle.

Gents, I have another question about the suspension springs. I think I mixed up my front and rear. Are the front ones longer? Or the rear ones. When taking the M151 apart the long ones were in the front but now while assembling the manual says different? Or am I wron.

BTW Now I wish I had bought the 20 ton press :shock:

I am pretty sure the rears are the longer, On an A1 they are. Go with what the manual says. Somewhere in there are measurements for the springs.

Finally! The day came to put the truck back on the wheels and put the engine in. A friend of mine came by, initially just for a coffee and we ended up placing the engine in the truck.

I still need to put in the rest of the brake lines and drive train. For some reason I cannot motivate myself working under the truck. So instead I ended up placing in the rear wire harness etc.
