you could use a drill and a half inch drill bit. that will do the job.  ;D
dont get mad i was just kidding.
Aerodynamics is for those who can't build engines

If ford pintos are not fast then why chevy's have to use there parts to make them fast?

Guys i have gotten side tracked from working on pinto.  In my way of moving the pinto is a old 60s camper that has a tire that will not hold air.  When the tires are flat the leaf springs are on the ground so its impossible to move, it strained are ford 4000 tractor trying to pull it.  So I bought a bottle jack yesterday (6 ton) , so i plan on putting another tire/ rim on it and moving it.
