Rust or bling, we want to see it!

Robin, I will be bringing back two complete axles in early August that Plateaucal gave me. They came from his donor and it was in very good shape from the parts I've seen. My plan was for Rafael to rebuild them to "as new" for someone.. someday. But if you need parts I will likely have them.

Concerning the rear gears. I was given a locked set of rear gears, my mechanic was afraid for me to use them so I still have them if you want them.

Regards,

Well 2018 is over. Still trying to catch my breath. Fire clean up, then catching up on all the work that was set aside was brutal.
I was able to get my rear end fixed. Sourced all the bearings and dropped it at my buddies shop in Auburn CA. His buddy from the the shop next door walked in and said "hey that's a Patrol axle". So he rolled the cart next door and fixed it between jobs :dance: :dance: :dance:
So WFO Concepts has some people in the know.
Since then I have been swamped but got the axles with new bearings and seals, made the bearing tool

next chance will be brakes.
Hopefully I will get to work around here, but heard we are sending crews to the Paradise clean up. Just what I need, 3 months of nights, then sent out of town.

Robin - slow progress is better than no progress. Keep up the good work. Maybe you and I will finish at the same time - in the mId 2020s.

So when I pulled the sway bar off I snapped all the bolts in the frame, so drilled and tapped those today. Trimmed the sleeves for the spring bushings, then hung the front of the springs.

Then just cleaned up and painted some parts, need to let the swaybar dry.

Know anyone that need some old bastard pack springs or a winch? The fronts have 2 extra leaves, the rears have 3, want to talk about a rough ride. The marks doesn't have a place for a pto, so the winch isn't doing me any good.

Been able to get out in the shop a little, so relined brakes, turned drums, new wheel cylinders, and lines. I'll swap out the soft line once it's under the Patrol.

The Marks requires a rear PTO.

So I had last Monday off and got a little done on the patrol, doing every thing by myself lets me be creative.

First you get this pig out of the shop and back to the patrol. (It's really not that bad until you mount the brakes and drums)

20190408_152645-1280x1024.jpg



Then you get it ready to go under the Patrol.
20190408_153059-1280x1024.jpg


Then you put it over the springs and find out they sent you the wrong u-bolts
20190408_185009-1280x1024.jpg


So you spend an hour chasing the threads on the old u-bolts and go order some new ones.

So while I was waiting around for u-bolts I cleaned up my shackles then yesterday pressure washed all the old grease old grease from the hangers. Pushed the pins out of the shackles and rotated them 180° since they only wear on one side. Then had lunch with the in laws. After lunch the drive way had dried up some, so I hung the rear of the springs. Then the mailman showed up with my u-bolts. Off with the old and on with the new. New grease zerks then in for the eve. Today I hung the new shocks, sway bar, and drive shaft.

Then I put the tires back on set on the ground and tightened up every thing.

All new hard and soft brake lines are installed, bled the brakes.
Rebuilt the Clutch master cylinder, freed up the adjuster. Have a new slave cylinder to go in. Have new soft line, and material to make a new hard line. Need to grab a couple copper washers, and a return spring and we be driving.

Looks like Energy Suspension 9.8106 sway bar end link bushings are what fit. let you know in a couple days.


Oh yeah, better not forget to fill the rear diff.


Clearing all the extra stuff from under the hood, pulled the tank valve and all the extra hoses. Next will be the PA speaker, and all the go nowhere wires.

nice looking projects, been following you for a long time :)

Did you get your clutch slave cylinder in? My father-in-law helped me reinstall a new one and he snapped the bolt that has fluid pass through it into the slave cylinder from master line.... what a crisis, talk about hard to find part. Had to fab one from a bolt and drill it through the center and laterally. It worked, but be careful with that 50 year old bolt if you've got the same setup, can't handle a lot of torque!

So I had it running like a dream, cruising the hood and pop sputter pop pop pop. Would not run unless you were fanning the throttle.
Pulled the new dizzy with the pertronics back off, same. Cleaned and rebuilt the carb, same. Fresh fuel from a different can, same. Ordered a yf carb, slapped it on, screwed the idle mixture screw in and back out 1 1/2 turns. Manually set the choke and cranked it over, fired and ran all by its self. Now I am waiting on some linkage parts to finish up the linkage, and fab up a cable holder for the choke.

Ok, so I got the linkage done, then made up a bracket for the choke. Tapped the new carb to mount the bracket. Ordered a air cleaner off an old bronco with a 300 in it, and it hit on my valve cover :( . So I went to Vintage Inlines and got this.

I will probably go to a Donaldson canister down the road, but this was quick and easy :D .
I will probably drill and tap the hat so I can vent my crankcase, has anyone put a PCV valve on a P motor?

Great job on the carburetor install!

I need your help :D please. Could you post the parts you used for the linkage? and where you purchased them? So I can purchase the same ones as well.

Also, if you can help me understand how did you make the manual choke work. If you can maybe post some more detail pictures of both items (the linkage and the choke).

I'm currently installing the same carburetor on a 1970 gray market Patrol, and I need help figuring out all these little issues that are different. Please, I beg you!!! Any help is much appreciated. Thank you so much.

How much of your stock throttle linkage do you have?
I just added these to what I had https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Mr-Gaske ... 88416.html and made a little plate out of some scrap metal I have laying around. I'll get some pics after dinner.

First I used a file and filed off the peened over end of the ball rod on the carburetor and removed the ball.
20190819_183814-1280x1024.jpg

Then using a small piece of 1/8" stock I had laying around I drilled 2 holes to match up with the holes on the carburetor linkage. Then I worked the throttle and carburetor to see where the throw would work the best. It is a #8 screw in the back, and a number 10 in the front.
20190819_183934-1280x1024.jpg

As near as I can tell the new hole for the ball is 1 1/8" c-c from the back screw, and 1" from the front one.
20190819_184021-1280x1024.jpg

Then I drilled out the stock throttle linkage and small plate with a 1/4" drill, cut a 1/4" bolt to length, and found the right amount of washers to clock the ball and sockets.

20190819_183831-1280x1024.jpg

The choke I just picked up a piece of aluminum angle from Ace Hardware, drilled out and tapped 2 dead end holes that are in the carb casting. The cable clamp comes with the conversion kit. I may make up a different arm because the one in the kit is real short. Your choke handle only comes out about a half inch.
