Not getting any Chef Boyardee? May as well, it's mutually exclusive with the Cashmere lol


Alex I have my rear bumper overiders in the Scion for ya!


Amazing! What do I owe ya? Or am indebted for life?


Progress is looking good man! What's the deal with the saggy clutch shaft? Need anything? I just got a free parts tranny, I can pass on my savings!

Aaron, It's hard to tell from Lanner's pinhole camera pics (I know he can get artsy when he doesn't have the Canadian camera), but I don't think the king pins look all that bad. I'd go the re-bush route (and that's exactly what I did on mine!). I'm not overly impressed with the quality of the current offerings, and pretty pricey too for said "quality". A bar of bronze or aluminum bronze will run you under $30, that and a little labour should keep you well under the cost of the new ones, shipped to your door. To each, their own though.

Keep at 'er man, I'll be seeing those nifty tail light gaskets from the road in no time!

Why buy when you can build?
I've spent hours on parts that you can buy for pennies.

Greg, it's an old flyer. But I'll keep my ear to the ground and call you if any deals pop up. Or maybe I should start another email list for the TP deals...who wants in?

Yeah Alex is right, they're fixable. If you wanted new I'd go here:
http://www.wagenswest.com/partstore/ind ... n-set.html

If you wanna keep it OG, I'd fix em for about half of that :). (buddy price, lol).

Keep on wrenching Aaron! I can get your brake parts rebuilt today so you can put your brakes back together.

Who's down for group build to get Aaron to Durham show? Motor ready Aaron?

I'll walk across the hall there in G-town and turn some wrenches.

If he's up there in the next 2-3 days I'll make sure we at least get those rear backing plates / seals / etc on and ready to go for the return of the rear WC's.

Don't think I can get the group build thing going for this weekend, but if things change you all will be the firts to know. Thanks for all the support!

Little progress tonight , big thanks to Lanner for going over my master and rear cylinders! Also big thanks to Sandor for much help with reassembling the rear axle seals and brakes.

WTF is up with the flex lines? I swear I fit swing axle flex lines in the back of my bus properly- as in they fit the holes on the chassis and axle with the proper clips.

And the fuel line should take you all of 5 minutes. Hose from tank to filter to carb. Gotta love a tank that close to the engine.

You should be driving this thing to Durham fo sho!!!! \:D/

If you can't run with the big dogs....

Yeah, I was telling Aaron....I'm pretty sure there should be brackets on the axles tubes for the flex-line to hard line connection....his don't have any....so PO used zip-ties [-X

Durham will be a stretch Greg . A lot of sorting still needs to be done . Not to mention there is not much front end there right now. I'll have to consult your thread for fuel pump mounting and such!I will also work on mounting the flex lines properly as the zip ties annoy me.
