Home Made Easy 8-3/4 Center Chuck Storage


Take 2 empty 5 gals buckets and one cover.
cut the bottom of one of the bottoms minus 1/2"-3/4" to leave as a small lip
place one bucket with the cut bottom inside the whole bucket
This is my tool of choice for cutting out the bottom of the bucket- a 3" air "wizzer".
drop the center chuck in the top
attach the cover and label. All good. If you put lube in the bottom to coat the gears or completely dry. Also if you do fill with gear oil, make sure you use a cover with a seal and please lift the whole bucket by both handles and not just one as with the center chuck it will be HEAVY!
Good luck.
About author
I've been a "Jesus Chrysler Nut" for over 35 years. I've built and rebuilt quite a few Dodges, Plymouths and Chryslers. I've bought and stripped more than 35 cars in my life time.

"Any one can restore one but it take a real man to cut one up."

I enjoy the hobby and realize not all fun is in the finish product but the journey. The meeting of new people also passionate for the hobby is the best part and I enjoy helping people out where ever I can. The saddest moment and the happiest moment is when a car is finished.

I was a GM Master Tech by the time I was 21 years only and was a Lead Technician with 7 mechanics under me for 10 years at the dealership level. I now own a welding and equipment repair company in SouthEastern, Connecticut for the last 22 years. When I started the equipment business I did it on the side and worked the full time technician job during the day, nights and weekend for the first few years fixing farm and construction equipment.

MoPars have been my goto for fun, relaxation, mental break and family fun now getting both my sons into this hobby. There is not one piece on a car including body work I have not tried my hand at and felt like I've been successful. I am so happy I chose not to wear a bowtie or an oval for my vehicle. There is something about following Mother MoPar.
