Summer is great. I get home from work and have some light in the evenings to work on Rat Patrol. I've included a few shots of the front end coming together. I had a tie rod end with damaged threads and a spare drag link. I used the method Robert told me about. You just take a dremmel with a cutting wheel on it and grind the factory dimpled metal away. then just unscrew the cap off. I switched the ball from the extra tie rod and reassembled it. Just screw the cap back on and re-dimple the metal.

Got my new shock absorbers in the mail today :D I had read on this forum that KYB # 343219 fits the patrol. I wanted to be sure so I contacted KYB, gave them my stock shock measurements and in fact they did verify 343219 as a good number. I got a great deal from Summit Racing. The order for 4 shocks with shipping only $89.00. All I had to do is peel off the sticker and paint them gloss black as I found some intact paint on my old one that was gloss black.

Just finished the bell housing. Took it completely apart after pressure washing off all the years of gunk on it. I then cleaned and greased all the rods. Now everything moves nice with no binding :dance:

Since my engine ran fine I opted for just changing the gaskets, freeze plugs and a repaint. After I put a few goodies on it i'll drop her in on the new mounts I got from down under. :dance:
