General Lee Destroyed by Fire - Fifteen Years of Fun - Part 1
Visit for updates.... My wife is the major contributor to this inspirational video to rebuild the General Lee. The fire started inside the house from a sump pump malfunction. The pump kicked on when there was no water in the sump pump hole and ran so long that it caught on fire. The fire then traveled up the ejection pipe and caught the staircase that the pump was under on fire, then spread into the hallway, living room, and garage. What the fire didn't destroy, the intense heat and smoke did, including the entire second level of the house. We were out of town when it started.

Every General Lee Jump (TV Series)
There are perhaps one, maybe two at most missing as they had title screens in the frame, and even those were reused, but otherwise, every General Lee Jump is here. No plastic toys, no CGI, just REAL CARS with REAL DRIVERS. I have editied the mid jump ad-breaks seen in the U.S. to have as little impact on the actual jump footage as possible.

Bearing Packing
Thanks kamaka71for providing a part number. Lisle 34550 (available on Amazon) As part of a disc brake swap I'm working on, I thought I'd do a vid about packing grease into the roller bearings. There are vehicles out there with ball bearings and sealed bearings, but the vast majority use roller bearing like this. In the first half, I use a common, manual bearing packer. In the second half, I show how to pack the bearing by hand. Many years ago, an old timer at the base auto hobby shop was probably younger then, than I am now....showed me how to do this after I smoked a front wheel bearing that I thought I packed correctly. Sorry the vid cuts off abruptly at the end, but the memory card filled up. I was done anyway. Like us on Facebook! Check out our products! Behind-the-scenes look at what we do!
