Spent a little time in the garage today on the starter. Made a new cable as the cloth one was cracked and frayed. I was able to use the original cable ends by bending the tabs open then re crimping them on the new cable. Also got a nice repro Patrol badge for Christmas. :occasion-xmas:

Hey you probably know but those engine mounts are going to be metric thread while your old ones will be SAE. So make sure and buy new metric bolts before install.

Cheers

That's what Tap and Dies are for... No US-Market Patrol should ever have a metric bolt anywhere on it... That's sacrilegious.

I mean what's next? Speed limit signs in Km/H...?

Over my cold, dead, red white and blue American body :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:


{Yeah, ok, maybe I'm over-reacting.... They are just bolts. :occasion-unclesam: }

Spent a bunch of time in the garage this weekend. Robert is heading to paint and I'm getting behind :doh: . My driveshaft was really bad. The metal was bent in arount one of the U joints and I had to grind it down to get it out. Also, the dust cover was loose which took some heating, straightening and luck to get it seated back in it's cup. Anyway, gott the U joints, rear drive shaft and e brake in, and the intake and exhaust manifolds installed.
