Photo 303 - 306 - Details continued. Cleaning consisted of citrus cleaner, evaporust, Meguiars #7 & Rust Prevention Magic (RPM).

Thanks to Jose for hooking me up with an early shifter assembly along with a handle. Here’s one before before photos


Photo 307 - 308 - As received before cleaning.

Photo 309 - 310 - After Cleaning and greasing/rebuilding.

One other quick purchase to note is a vintage Mallory Rev Limiter. I'll try to update this thread again when I have time. Thanks for looking.

Thank you gentlemen.


Photo 313 - Driveshaft after cleaning but before soaking in evaporust.

Photo 314 - 315 - Yoke after removing from shaft.

Photo 316 - Broke out the pvc pipe to soak the shaft while the yoke was soaked in a smaller container as well as the original u joint.

Photo 317 - 319 - Yoke after soaking and during rebuild of u-joint. Absolutely zero play in the cups and no wear in the needles or cups. Unfortunately I wasn’t so lucky on the diff side joint so I will source a new grease-able one from a local parts house.

Photo 320 - Driveshaft after soaking and reinstalling yoke.

Some driveshaft marking details.

Photo 321 - 327 - What’s left of the white stripe, then oddly enough what appears to be remnants of a stenciled part number but unable to make it out completely and then at the end of the stencil is the remains of the orange stripe.

The front brake lines and clips that had black overspray on them and surprisingly it saved them from pitting and corrosion.

Photo 328 - Crossover brake line to the passenger side front and the drivers side front line. Sorry no photos of before paint removal.

Photo 329 - 331 - Clips and bolts before removal of paint showing detail of stamped “3” and then after cleaning.

Photo 332 - 334 - close ups of the brake lines.

Pulled the main fuel line and gave it a good once over.


Photos 335 - 337 - Before photos

Photos 338 - 340 - After photos. As you can tell that line looked pretty cruddy but with a little pedestal mounted grinder with a wire wheel and hitting the whole line with Wenol Blue and Red metal compounds made it come out decent enough for this ole hunk of junk. I will apply RPM to the line once it gets closer to reinstallation.

Great pics and details, lots of excellent information. The car will stand very tall after your detailing, which you've been careful not to be too invasive.

Thanks for sharing!!!
