  1. Where is a good place to get shock link bushings and washers/ keepers for my 36? Thanks in advance.
  2. To me looks like 2 left hand drives and one right hand drive. Would they make both in the same year?
  3. I guess I might have to bite the bullet and check/replace the pinion seal since it has been sitting so long. Thanks... Bob
  4. I have no Idea. I haven't taken any of the diff apart. I assume that it may be original as the truck has been in my family since early 1950's. I don't recall my dad ever doing anything to the diff. It has been sitting not run since mid 60's.
  5. I'm to the point of oil in the diff and putting on all 4 drums. I'm considering Royal Purple 85-140 syn in the diff. I'm not sure of what grease to use on the wheel bearings. What's good,whats not. How much of the area between the inner and outer bearings on the front wheels should be filled with grease? 1/2, 3/4 or all full? How will I know when the rear axle bearing have enough grease? Thanks in advance Bob.
  6. Thank you all. I just don't want to have things go SPROING.. and have it tip over or something. I have 2 20 ton truck stands under the front axle, so i'm assuming that will keep it pretty stable on the front. Thanks again..
  7. I don't quite understand about jack under spring, but I am /was not planning on removing springs from the axle housing. Is the process still the same in that case? thanks.
  8. I just need help and/or confirmation on procedure for replacing rear spring components. My understanding is that I need to put jack stands under the frame at the rear, and a jack under the differential. Raise the jack to relieve pressure on the springs to remove and replace the shackles and bushings. The components at the rear of the springs first, and then the front of the spring components last. Any and all help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Bob
  9. on the 10 inch steel drums does the 115 refer to 11.5 inches? or something else. (MM) Do you know if its the same for a 36? Thanks. Bob
  10. I don't know if it's the same, but I have an extra for a 38 D8.
  11. left rear brakes are done with all new parts. I think I got everything back together right.
  12. found some seats that I hope will work. Will need some alterations and new upholstery, but they fold forward to get to gas tank. They are from 63-68 MGB.
  13. thanks for the info..Bob
  14. pics (new and old) Doing a rusty restoration myself, so it's not gonna be anywhere near perfect body wise. Have everything new for braking system. (master and wheel cylinders,lines, bearings,cups and seals, shoes and related hardware.) Just getting started putting things together so I don't have much to show yet.
