Re: Around Waynos house

OK, I understand what you are saying, I adjusted the clip in that second photo so it could be seen better, the first photo is how it normally is(in the groove). I can see when installing the yokes it may take a little finesse to get the clips inside the barrel of the yoke, so forcing them in is not ...

Re: Around Waynos house

I cleaned up the wiring today, but I did it without the engine in the car, so I don't know if all the wires will reach now. All the wires sticking out in the middle are all that go to the engine, they all go to different places on the side of the engine. https://i.postimg.cc/bvvjBVTb/007.jpg There a...

Re: Around Waynos house

By the way I believe this is the clip that holds the yoke in on both sides, you can see it better in the second photo, it's in that groove on the shaft.

Re: Around Waynos house

I pressure washed the engine compartment a couple days ago with my little pressure washer that doesn't have as much pressure, since then I have been waiting for it to dry out doing little stuff, I also am waiting for that rear seal, everywhere that the paint had pealed/came off in the engine compart...

Re: Around Waynos house

I removed the insulation this morning, it had to be broken up/ripped apart because some stuff was mounted on top of it like the wiper motor and brake assembly. https://i.postimg.cc/BQvKkzkm/001.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/SNtMhrpk/002.jpg The foam piece, it really doesn't look much like the one in the ...

Re: Around Waynos house

That insulation in that link is a 1/2" thick, the product on my firewall is over 7/8" thick without the black outer layer, but I ordered one anyway, we shall see how long it takes to get here.

Re: Around Waynos house

The car was originally green, just not quite as dark of a green as the exterior.
I will likely remove that crap tomorrow and see what it looks like underneath, I also need to really clean the area under the front engine pulley, another clue the front seal was bad also.

Re: Around Waynos house

It doesn't really look like my firewall above the vertical part of the firewall but that doesn't mean it's not the right part, I have a low spot in the middle but no low spots on the sides. Mine does have what appears to be a coating on it in a few places, but it almost looks like the foam underneat...

Re: Around Waynos house

I made some progress today, it's not a great paint job, but at least I taped off the aluminum, head is black heat resistant paint, the block is just red paint close to what it had before, not the exact color, but close. https://i.postimg.cc/dtdVWTpD/001.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/NjcfZjvD/002.jpg I ne...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

I thought paintless dent removal was for small dents, that's a rather large dent/Owie.
Just take photos of the other side from now on. :lol:

Re: Around Waynos house

I already released the one when I tested the tool I made and it popped right back in to where I had to use the tool to release it again, but getting them yokes back into the trans-axle while lowering the engine/trans-axle back in might be tricky. I will clean the engine bay and engine/parts over the...

Re: Around Waynos house

The yokes are just like the drive line yoke that the Datsun transmissions have, except there are 2 of them coming out the sides, it was a lot easier to lift the engine up a few inches and release the CV joint yokes than it would be to jack up the front of the car off the ramps and put it on stands, ...

Re: Around Waynos house

Well that worked out well, I postponed the job I had these morning because the customer said it rained there and I don't want to walk on his dirty tile roof when it is wet, so I decided to try and make that tool I need to remove the yokes from the trans-axle case. I made it out of 5/32" thick alumin...

Re: Around Waynos house

I finally read an engine removal article that doesn't require the removal of front suspension parts, but I will need to make a tool to separate the axles from the gear box(trans-axle), it is basically a "C" shaped wedge that one pounds in between the trans-axle case and the yoke that slides into the...

Don't these have some zany hydraulic suspension?
I don't know what all makes up the suspension, but I do know that this big tear drop shaped piece of rubber is the coil spring, it has a cone on the top and a bowl on the bottom as I recall, and that piece of rubber is in the middle of them.

Re: Around Waynos house

I do have a manual and it keeps talking about removing front suspension parts, but the problem is that these search results keep leading me to text results instead of text with photos, one has to know what the parts are that they keep referring to to understand what they are talking about, if they h...

Re: Around Waynos house

I am not sure I am going to be able to get the engine out of this car without pulling the whole front end out of the car, I cannot figure out if I can remove the axles without removing the complete front wheel assemblies off both sides, I have searched it and not one video shows anyone separating th...

Re: Escape From the Prison Planet

When an engine has blow-by it is very hard to keep seals in it, my 521 work truck engine(the L20b) had massive blow-by at the end, if I ran the engine with the oil filler cap off in a matter of a few minutes the bottom of my hood(hood is up) would get a round oil spot on it, with the oil filler cap ...
