A noob restores a '73

Entries in this blog

Semper ubi sub ubi

Subframe nearly complete. After replacing the brakes, she should be set to get bolted back on. Can't wait to get her back on the road!   R&R'ed mostly everything: Diff rebuilt with new bearings CV joints re-packed New half shafts & hubs Wheel bearings All bushings & hardware Sandblasted & POR-15 frame   Before and after:       Rebuilding the diff was probably the most difficult / nerve-wracking. Removing/reinstalling all the bearings was definitely a learning experience. The upside is that I have a shiny new shop press.   The wheel nuts were giving me nightmares based on all the posts here, but a long stretch of angle iron and this bad boy made it a pretty easy job to get to 280 lb/ft of torque.
