    I get lucky. I thought I seriously fucked-up yesterday.

    Those drums are like a $180 each, and would have cost $150 to next day ship. 68 drums are one year only because the backing plate is like a 64-67 style.

    Peet is killing it today. Should be able to drive it home this weekend if you want.

    The flywheel was glazed. See those two blue/black spots. Resurfaced.

    Then I noticed the throw-out bearing was off-center because the set screw on the back was loose.

    Whats up with that fancy wire tie clip hanger? You got a new throw-out bearing because the old one was getting loose/noisy. Clevis pin on the pedal was dry and worn.  Bowden tube was kinked at the end and had too many spacers. Clutch pressure plate was China. I installed a HD sach/brazil.

    You got some funky stuff going on. 1968 is a one year only drum..but you have different backing plates. One backing plate is 68 type, and the other is 69-70 type. I did’nt realize. The outter dust seal to the backing plate is slightly different. 69 is larger.

    I was able to modify a 69-70 drum to fit 68 backing plate by parting the outer ring.

    Jesse, bad news, Pat just started putting stuff together. It looks like I ordered the wrong rear drums and cross shaft. We’ll be scrambling next week.

    Lookign good. Yeah I can make a spare tire mount…but it looks like you know what you are doing. I have one here to copy. The original has strengthening ribs that I can’t reproduce.

    Got Rusty’s rig on lift and opened the decklid to this. I think I’ll push it back outside and wash it.

    Jesse’s uber expensive german brake parts arrived from WW, I cleaned and coated them with black epoxy. Ready for assembly tomorrow.

    JJ is worried about driving to AZ with  you and Jesse’s turd-wagens in tow 😆

    I got the rear window in, then your brother Ron showed up for a tune-up. So it out until Wednesday-ish.
