Steering joints were also replaced but managed to rescue the little grease tits, don't know what they're called.

Engine mounted, new mounts. Also, rockers were fine tuned and inner rings redone.

Note, new OEM shocks too.

Sourced all the transmission parts from Amayama, took three months to arrive form Japan. New clutch from fjparts.com too.

Alternator is NOT OEM though, it's an old OEM Chevy that works, same with fuel pump.

Harmonic balancer was off so, in the process of repair, the crank bit had to be cut off in order to be able to get into the inner wedge.

5) A small repair we did on the diff mounting plate. It was incredibly worn off so the plate was redone.

The rear bifold door wasn't so bad, but the little rust spots were completely cut out and patched up.
Does anybody have the measurements of the little wheels that guide the door up and down in the rear panels? They were lost in mine and can't figure out how to source them as I have to reference as to measurements, materials, etc...
