I got my new oil pan so I put in a new rear main seal (2 piece) and mounted the pan on a 1 piece Milodon gasket. I also mounted some more accessoires to the motor and testfitted the high torque mini starter.
Finally some pics of my brakes/spindles....I finished them a year ago I think.
The Holley Pro Jection throttle body fuel injection system. I bought it second hand but got a lot of new parts for it: fuel filters, O2 sensor, temp sensor and a trick kit. I also cleaned up the wiring.
Some rear suspension parts painted with POR15. I had to enlarge the holes for the U-bolts (5/8") since the Hotchkis leafs came with heavy duty hardware. So now I have to repaint the shock mounting plates. (allready sanded them as you can see in the pic)
I took the exhaust apart, cleaned and repainted it. The header flanges were cut off since I have new (shorter) headers now.
I got myself a new wiring harness (21 circuit) from EZ-wiring. I re-used the bulkhead connector for the firewall with new connectors. I made some modifications for my own application but I must say the harness is very complete and of good quality. The wires are color coded and have the circuit printed on them. I did as much preparation as possible at home so installation in the car will not take too much time (mostly in awkward positions). Soldering and using heat shrink sleeve will make it good and reliable. I will run extra ground wires throughout the car to prevent bad grounds through paint/rust.
I did a lot of cleaning on the rear axle....35 years of dirt and grease does take some time to remove. I made some pics of the numbers on the axle just for reference. Now it is completely cleaned, degreased and prepped with "Metal Ready" and awaiting it's POR15 coating.
No promisses this time for a new update....just check back in a month or so....who knows...maybe ;-)
