    All these 66’s around here!!!

    I wonder if the stock spring plate angle is in the book??? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔.  I’m gonna look!  I have the official manuals for all the cars I work on 😉😉😉. You know..  like a shop.  But all I probably need to do is look on samba 👀👍🏻

    I don’t like how much spline you give up with this set up.   Looking around this week, I have found about 4 sets of adj spring plates we have removed from Cars!

    I do like being safe but I’m less the Baja style type.

    Rear end all back from apart!  Some fresh hardware where needed, fresh original spring plates set to 13 degrees. Cleaned up engine bay degrease and wipe out.  Cut out the old engine bay seals. And used some duck bill pliers to clean up the seal channel..  it had seen better days.  Then arm wrestled new engine bay seals in!  I cleaned up the finger pokers someone left behind on the firewall and noticed your throw out bearing clips had been rubbing on the pressure plate and were just about worn through!! I imagine from a clutch being adjusted too tight??  I wonder if the clutch tube is broke in the pan?????  Probable🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫

    Tomorrow I will get some shocks installed, heat risers done in the exhaust, new clutch and disc..  engine in!!😎😎😎😎😎😎😎😎
