    Hey! Yea its actually really good, after a lot of work it starts,runs,idles,stops,rides great. Getting ready to do some work on the front end (springs and bushings) and cant wait to test it out. I did put new tires on her and replace all exterior lights with leds and the ride is a million time better (old tires were 28yrs old) and my volt gauge is like a rock now. How you doin? Hows delo ownership treating you?

    Well, I was under the car not too long ago and it looked like my closing plate to my fuel tank was a little wet. When I removed the plate I found the epoxy on the under side was like latex and bubbling, my master cylinder looks to be leaking so thats one thing. On top of that my rear brakes are not working properly, like their locked up. When I frist drove the car the front wheels started to smoke after a little while, I though the front calipers were seized but I think they were getting over worked because the rears werent doin anything . So Im goign to pop in a new master cylinder and rebuild the rear calipers (I hope) and replace the rear soft lines .. yay

    I haven't yet but I have checked it out. It really doesn't look too bad just very little space to work with. The instruction from dmcmw are step by step. It looks like you have to loosen the u joint at the firewall and pull the column shaft out from the interior. Then you can sneek in the bushing from the inside and hammer it in. Realigning the splines in the u joint looks to be the hardest part. I will be doing it soon though. Ive been playing with the brakes and finishing up some injector replacement and mixing. If you haven't already you have to check out Alex's step by step blog (type in alex in the search bar and youll find the link on this site) its the best. Great pics and tips. Ive spent many many days a work reading and would not be as far along if not for that blog.
  4. Nice! I received my bushing from them as well, let me know how it goes. I will probably have to have a shop do it because I don't think I have the necessary facilities or expertise

    I do have that same steering column issue and Ill bet its the bushing cus it make a hell of a wracket just by grabbing the wheel and moving it around but I just havent had a chance to check it yet. My ac is totally F'ed, I cant get it to do anything, my fans dont come on and the control head doesnt do anything either. Im sure its just a wiring or power issue but its another thing I havent had a chance to get to yet. I really wanted to get running right before I dig into that. 2 things on my ever growing shit list. I really do love working on it though.. I pretty much got all my interior back in last night, its starting to look like a car again .. yey !

    Really, I would be very lucky to get her totally up and running by Sat (I discovered a little rear brake issue) but I am hopefull. This might be a great week to get some work done. I just finished doing the roof box bolt down and resealing and now Im moving on. But maybe the week or 2 after you get back Ill be ready, a big parking lot in S. Philly would be great.. Im in. And no I havent found out why my tach took a shit, I do think it is the tach itself because my binnicle was takin out by the PO and by the looks of his work Im sure thats what it is but I really hope its something easy.. Ill keep you posted

    Sure, would love to. Im hoping to actually get mine rolling this weekend. It still needs a lot of work but im getting there. Ill bet my money pit is bigger than yours. Looks like you picked up a nice one! I have done a lot of work and would be happy to help out any way I can. If I can get it running the way I want it we can meet somewhere half way if you want.
