New Head Gasket

Posted on: Sunday July 20, 2014

Yesterday I fixed the drivers seat and added a switch to turn on the fan anytime. A few days before, I changed the head gasket, water pump, thermostat, oil and filter, and radiator hoses. Last week, I put drilled rotors in, braided steel brake lines, and a rear axle w new trunnion, shoes, and slave cylinder. Also put wider rims on it a few weeks before. All parts, except for the water pump, hoses, slave, and axle were bought new by the p.o. and never installed.

Right Rear Axle

Posted on: Wednesday June 25, 2014

The axle splines separated. Before I put one of my other axles on it, I put a new ujoint, slave cylinder, trunnion, and brake shoes on the replacement axle. Also greased the bearing. Its time to do the front discs and pads.
