    Route 66 was A bucket list trip for me and it was amazing and loved it, so much to see and do, wish we had more time, we jumped on in Joplin MO and went to CA, then up coastal hwy 1 to WA before heading back to MN, 12 days 5,300 miles....I can’t wait to see it again some day!

          Well today we made it to our furthest point. Visited Russell's truck stop and viewed their museum.been there before but nice to revisit.
          Went to Cadillac ranch and let grandson do some graffiti work.
          Went further east and found the bug ranch. Never heard of it.
          Went to museum in Elk city and was nice.
          Will start heading back to Louisiana tomorrow.
          In New Mexico I noticed that I have a bearing going out on rear end. Can't tell if it's pinion or carrier.
          Checked the oil and it's good. It had gotten louder thru the day. Cross my fingers and keep it under 60

              I see you made it to the Mid Point Cafe!
              Praying your bearing makes it back home.
              If you are near Dallas and need help, let me know.

                  WE MADE IT!!! got home today after 2 days of driving. Bearing has been getting all the way but it lasted. May have killed the gear set but it would of been hard to fix on the road. Gear set is cheaper than wrecker and shop labor. Other than that car did well. 2,375 miles and dirty.
                  Thanks for support and prayers. May do again next year have more grandsons.

                    That is awesome! My wife and I did some of rt 66 about 10 years ago. A lot of those pics look familiar.

                      E-booger doesn't like the green bearings. Says they don't take the side loads like a tapered bearing. I would hate for you to be on the next rip and have a problem!

                      Been my experience is the GBs are good for the street however running any competition driving such as AutoX, road racing, hill climb its better to stick with a Tompkins. As far as running the 1320 I’ve never seen or heard of any issues.
