Adjusted my rebuilt rear drums after having it all together for a fortnight haha. (Having four brakes is not over rated!) installed a new adjustable pan hard rod from road safe and got it realigned. Installed Ďthe cureí from ruff stuff industries, thus concluding the steering rebuild on the old girl. Couldnít be happier the the results!!

Added to my debts somewhat... decided to rebuild my motor right and ordered all required parts.

Not going to give much away here yet, but Iím super excited for the desired outcomes. Think itís going to stay in my ownership for a long time to come haha.

Huge day ahead tomorrow, starting with wrapping up the port polish / gasket matching and dropping the crank

So Iím a bit behind and missed my opportunity for pink slip, so blue slip is on the cards now.

Current update is sliding the trans back on longer bolts without dropping the whole thing is an absolute b*tch on your own but itís done now... and stock crank ready to drop.

Mild port polish and ground out throttle body also done, valve lapping next now that Iíve got new valve guides.

Electric water pump hard mounted under the radiator and plan to run two stock lower radiator hoses each trimmed back to/from the pump. Wiring also run but dash needs modifying to fit and some wiring extended in the engine bay.

I continue to use it as a daily drive (in daylight) despite the following:

-sticky drum brakes (it has been raining a lot!)
Workaround - when parked at level in garage, I leave the handbrake disengaged. No more sticky....

-I try not to drive it at night as the headlamp switch only illuminates parking lights and not regular low beams... auto electrician to fix, .... when I next go to the big smoke....

-Slight leak in rear Dana 35 Diff Housing

-Oil spotting from Engine oil filter o-ring - will look at it next service in a few weeks, along with completion of tranny and diff service.

Other than that, she does not miss a beat at 23 years since assembly.
