When I first bought this car, a few weeks back, I noticed the car pulled to the right when applying the brakes. Also noticed the E-Brake was t working properly.
So I decided to get it up on jackstands and do a full brake job this weekend.
I also greased all the fittings and checked the rear end fluid.

I'm waiting for the calipers to be rebuilt.

Up next will be an oil change, and check the transmission gear box fluid.

I replaced a leaky rubber fuel line between the main feed and pump. When I cleaned up the spilled petrol I then installed a spin on oil filter adapter.

On the way to the farm, for a long winter nap. Always kind of a sad day when the driving time is done for the year. Took it's last ride yesterday, filled the gas tank, and added stabilizer. Then into the trailer to go into the storage building. I need to take one car out of the garage, so I can close the door between the garage and shop, and turn the heat on in shop.

Scraped half a bucket of crud off the frame. Yuck. Then I put it up on jack stands (did the scraping while it was up on the lift) and removed the wheels and tires. Took them to Belle Tire to have the 18 year old tires removed and scrapped. The wheels will be blasted and powder coated before it gets new rubber.

I had the task of repairing the radiator.

Somehow feel like it's not quite a one man job but managed nonetheless, in and out in two consecutive days

Good going...just did mine as well...but kept the hole for crank starting. It was a decomposing mess the core was ok...and I just had reconditioned in Santa Clara California in 1975...got my money worth huh. In the US eBay, a reconditioned radiator with crank hole will go for $550...I had mine fixed locally by an 80 year old at Lester's Radiator shop for $95. I recommend to replace your fan with a "Hurricane fan" from Mark Macy's "Macy's Garage", Tipp City Ohio USA.

Love your roll bar...Had my for 40+ years...messes up the top down profile of the car but gets to be invisible when the top is up.
Motivation: Had to install it when my Navy buddy rolled his MGB...took his head off...Still have my head...but if I should roll the car...who knows...might lose it anyway???
Looks "ok" with tonneau on though.

Removed the brake pads, with a little help from a screwdriver and a pair of vice-grips. Broke one of the "plate, pad retaining/spring, anti-rattle" bolts. It turned as easy as the three others that came out, but the head just turned off. That caliper also has a bleeder that was broken off by the previous owner, and both pistons are frozen, so I have a bit of work or expense.

Removed the calipers.

Tony, I assume the pistons will be frozen. Keep us posted on how you get them out. I’ve tried lots of WD 40 but it hasn’t helped. Calipers are sitting in a box, it’s a job I’ve put on hold for now. Paul

One piston on each caliper came out with air pressure. Put that one back in and clamped it. The other piston, on both calipers, moves a tiny bit, but will not come out. Have both soaking with Kroil. Will post final results.
