Alright ...it’s been a real challenge trying to get my 40 road worthy. From the pains of removing old brittle weather stripping to leaky differentials I think I finally have the FEAR. (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas Movie Reference). Can you guys give me your opinion on my leaf springs? Driving this thing is painful and the suspension doesn’t seem to be doing anything. I did order new OME shocks but wanted to possibly change the leaf springs if they are shot. The 2nd issue is there is oil leaking from the round thing behind the oil pan as seen in the pic. Could that be a rear seal leak? Lastly underneath the distributer there is this flying saucer shaped thing with a hose that isn’t connected to anything. Is this a vent hose of some type? I’m in I’ve my head and sinking quick. If it wasn’t for this amazing community I would have thrown in the towel a while ago!
