Duct tape never leave home with out it
Thank you Macgyver !
Back in 1970. I had a 68 Barracuda, and toasted a wheel bearing...On a Sunday no less (all auto parts closed back then). The inner bearing was wielded to the axle, had tools, and took a chisel and hammer, and after my hand was totally swollen I chipped it away, took a file and cleaned the axle. Across the highway, some guy had a junker Chrysler in his yard, and I bought the wheel bearing from him, installed it and what seemed forever working on it, drove off. No cell phones back then. Lasted till I got rid of the car. Let me tell you, it wasn't any easy job.
