Most certainly something was wrong. Good call on replacing them

Yeah, carrier was off on the old one.
It was pretty manky, glad I got "new" ones.
The fronts came powder coated red for more stopping power.

Front suspension and brakes done.

Brakes bled easily. Pedal feels really good, albeit with no vacuum.

Clutch bleeding was a fiasco. Blew out the slave seals by operator error. Replaced with spare slave and gave myself a serious brake fluid shower.
I think the clutch is fully bled. Ran out of time to hook up shift linkage and try to put it though the gears.

This thing is about ready to be a roller.
Filled the diff and trans with fresh Redline fluids.
Hooked up shift linkage. Got all 6 gears (5 + reverse) and the linkage feels fantastic!
Still not sure I have clutch. I'm going to hook up the driveshaft and test it.

Got the Ronals mounted with Yoko S drives. They look properly meaty.

Nice progress.

You’re going to love the Ronals with the S Drives. I sure do.

Outside!





But, not running.

I had to shift from the engine to suspension, brakes, driveshaft, exhaust, basically everything under the car.



It needed to be a roller because I had it on stands blocking the shop door so none of the summer stuff could come out.



Now I can shuffle some things around and get the car in the back of the shop.

It's a good motivator to see it outside. It looks pretty sweet. A 20 footer but I don't mind that. The ride height is perfect and the Ronald's with meaty tires.

Really want to hear this.



It's pretty close. Install engine harness, radiator and hoses, intake mani with air box vac hoses, etc.
plus whatever I'm forgetting.
