Replaced the 4 brake hoses on the '73 today. Dealing with each one was some degree of fighting due to rust, age, and maybe non-OEM lines. The front drop hose was the worst and required a pair of vice grips to hold and brace the hose and bracket while cranking away with a plumbing too. Thankfully all the 10 mm flare nuts came loose easily.

How much does one of those alternator back covers go for? I have an alternator that is missing one.
Aussie header, the one in between the frame rails, is on my rig. It the 2F intake manifold perfectly.Got some generic weatherstripping around the doors, didn’t have enough to go around all of it because walmart only had two 8-ft sections. It was used previously in another thread for half doors and i decided to give it a chance. Worked out pretty well going from nothing to something!
MW78348 is the stripping number

Also got a new window regulator i guess youd call it. Had to match the access panel and clean up the rusty old door latch to pretty it up. Wire wheel an some clear coat cleaned up nice almost too nice.
I also changed the valve cover gasket and painted it because it had a leak towards the front end. One down of many many little leaks.

Now that exhaust header looks like i could end up in the hospital if i touch that. JTO sells those 6-1 headers that i got my eye on, i know they arent the best quality but for the <$300 price it seems better to me than what i have at the moment.
