my 1967 patina project build

I decided not to use the original split rims and purchased a set of Land Cruiser rims with just the right amount of patina. I had planned to use the original hubcaps and really like the smooth clean look.

I am not a big fan of the original late model FJ40 hubcap and I also hang out with too many LC friends so I wanted something a little cleaner and different. Enter the 1970's Pontiac welded to the cutdown mounting flange of the Land Cruiser hubcap.

Nothing too exciting going on lately, been busy with other projects and other peoples projects but I did take some time to play with my clutch linkage and tried to find the best of 3 setups. There are some holes that are less than round and a couple of the linkage rods have significant wear. I was able to weld one up and regrind it though. Some parts were blue and some black so I just repainted them to what they last had on them.

They look very nice!! Congratulations.

Years ago I did fix all the play in the linkage like you’ve done, but relied on a guy that was good at welding and shaping. I did myself was to add a grease zerk in the idler support with the two brackets.

I was thinking about doing that too. Mine moves freely but the other two from the parts rigs are seized. I used some heat and got one apart and cleaned it up some but is pretty pitted. Thinking I might enlarge the hole on the bottom that way the grease will flow to the ends and not just find the shortcut.
