Front suspension going back together:



Got the rotors cleaned up and reinstalled:



Little bit of fun in the sun, first time it's been mobile for about 4 months:



Another engine bay shot, still a bit of work to go on in there:

Finally back to the task at hand, dragged out the 360 from my 71 Javelin that I'm going to slot into the Gremlin for now:

Spent a bit of time cleaning up some casting flash on the motor:





Pulled the oil pan to bash the bottom of it back into shape, also got to clean the remains of some valve stem seals from the oil pickup:



Timing cover and oil pan back on with some new gaskets and a slightly less worn out timing set installed, then masked up for paint.



Now with some colour:

Small rust repair to the battery tray today:



Then I was planning on hitting it with some black, but there were some lumps in the paint that wouldn't go through the spray gun:



Fortunately I found a slightly more fluid tin of paint and managed to get the job done:

Christened the new brake pipe flaring tool today, certainly makes life easy:



Managed to get a couple of pipes and the adjustable proportioning valve in:



Need to track down some fittings for the line lock next.

Haven't updated here for a while, did eventually finish the brake line installation, still hadn't run the rear line from the line lock in this picture, but it's all done now:



I was trying to avoid a transmission rebuild, but when I pulled the pan off my other spare transmission I found this:



So obviously that didn't leave me with too many options:



So far I've managed to install the bolt in sprag so just a few more bits left to go:



In other news, I took my pile of diff bits down to the diff shop and got them to put them together:



Truetrac centre and 4.10 gears should get the job done:

Sometimes you have to improvise:



At least it's starting to look like a transmission again:

Good work on the transmission. I bought a T700 for rebuild, just need a shed to build it in now.

Probably make the job easier as I could watch T700 rebuild videos on YouTube.
