  1. Just called the stealership and they have 2 left in the US. One will be mine in a week for a whopping $30. I really hope it's right! thanks @jireland2002 for your help earlier.
  2. It seems so simple but it’s not. I’ve been on this safari hunt looking for the right pilot bearing. See picture below. -Blunttech -ie engineering -every parts store in my town turns up the new bearing show which is significantly larger than the old one. [email protected] believes that INA bearing manufacture had a hiccup and have been sending the wrong one out but know one can seem to find the right one. I’m not sure what the truth is and am really hoping I find out I’m a complete idiot and missed something. Anyone out there in this lonely “wrong part world”have me a answer!? I’ll include a few more pics of old and “new” dimensions. the part number 1121 1276 551 is what generally pops up in my search and is wrong size. The number on the old bearing is f 85249 1976 2002 m10 getrag 245 conversion in the works Cheers guys!
  3. Good day gents, I have looked and looked on Wallothnesch and rogers tii for this part and cant come up with anything. It's the support for the rear seat. Mine is pretty trashed. I would attempt to rebuild but its super thin metal. Is there any alternitaves for this part or does anyone know where i can find it? Zoom Catalog picture 41/02  Sort by Name Price Position no. Reverse sort direction
  4. I got the spring from Jim thanks. It's so nice to have a working speedo.. I then put it on jack stands and going deep on all four floor pans 😠
  5. I think were on the same page! Stripped the interior last night and took off the doors thinking "will i ever get these back on" besides the rust (which is going to be my biggest hurdle thus far) I feel the car will be in good standing. Then will start prepping for paint!
  6. Oh wait.. “yeah hunny I’m only 7k in right now” 30k goes unaccounted for
  7. UPDATE: I just ordered all 4 floor pans from wallothnesch for $300 shipped. It was twice that through american suppliers so I feel i'm off to a pretty good start with the budget thing.🤑
  8. this is basically the style i'm going for. Very nice chargin!
  9. The previous owner actually did me some favors like priming the rust spots and screwing up the timing and electrical system so it didn't run for two years. Now she runs pretty good. Currently rebuilding the weber carb and just put a pertronix onboard. I thought about going ahead and swapping motor/trans but I think I really fell in love with the m10. Resilient lil motor! Id love to see what she's got with a turbo strapped to it but i can't put the horse in front of the cart. Gotta get the body/ interior sound.
  10. Thank you all for the input. So cool to hear everyone’s $.02 I’ve seen quite a few resto’s go down including my brothers 61’ Chevy truck that has been restored 3 times now and a Porsche 356 that’s still not on the road. The 02’ is my first and am excited to see how it all plays out. I guess it’s time to put on my big boy pants and rip the floors out and check out the mechanical side which seems pretty par for a 76. Space/time/money and two kids are my biggest enemy. cheers guys!!

  12. Kinda a odd ball question because all the 02's out there are in such different states, but i'm curious what your beginning budget was and what it ended up being. The blood sweat and tears are priceless I know. I'm just getting knee deep in my resto and trying desperately not to rip it all the way down and go ground up. I want to enjoy this sweet car as I rebuild but the picture is becoming more and more clear that she may need way more attention than I previously thought! so far here is what i need to do vs what i want to do! needs -floor pans then carpet $500 -blower motor $100 -seat belts $100 -suspension (this falls under both but does have a front seized strut) $1000 -motor mounts $100 -oil leak fix...oil pan gasket? -sunroof rebuild -new instrument cluster since i fried it trying new lights -paint $??? wants front air dam and new bumpers $1000 stage one racing suspension aftermarket turbo $1000-2000 (if end up rebuilding motor) a awesome paint job! (gonna go back to the original grey) wheels and tires $1500 This is a off the cuff price for what i need and was thinking in the 5-k range without paint? I am doing the work myself except for paint. Take it easy on me fellas for i am at work multi tasking between work and play! Again, I am curious on your first budget and perhaps any pointers to start with!
