Knocked out trans assembly to the drums yesterday.
Seamless axles boots stretched into place.
Fresh, bearings, spacers, seals and break bits throughout.
Turned the rear drums. So smooth.
Swapped to a later clutch arm for easier adjustments, wing nut, and 4th trans bolt access.
Heavy duty release shaft as well.
Few more bits to go this morning.

Totally bummed we couldn’t meet up while we were up your way.
More progress! New trans/motor mounts, trans ground strap, fresh hard and rubber brake lines.
Freshly painted hardline brackets and new rubber grommets to boot!
Pulled torsion springs and cleaned out a bunch of stanky old grease.
Checked torsion arm bushings all around.
Pass lower bushing had slid out a bit and was out of round. New one to come.
Cut and turned the upper and lower tubes. Burned the center pin bracket back in as well.
Dusted the whole business off in the blast booth.
Epoxy sealed is drying. L41 Jet Black to follow.
We will build it if it comes.
