Well second thoughts here. The carpet is already out, so I asked my Wife if I could see the checkbook. Left front floor pan on order. :tu:

Long Weekend is Over........

Things I "almost" got done.

Finished the brakes, then on to bleeding with the help of my Wife. (have to revisit a leak under the dash, at least the carpet isn't in YET)
Finished the U-Joints. (Last bolt broke off, more FUN) :tongue:
All 4 Shocks installed. (no issues)
Lifters all in, and adjusted.
And wait till you see the picture of the right side exhaust long, (I haven't downloaded the camera yet)
Have a Great Day,

Bill

Here's the Pics........
Spring10 005 (800x600).jpg
At least it had some "Replacement Parts"
Spring10 001 (800x600).jpg
I'm not sure if everything came in the kit.
Spring10 004 (800x600).jpg
Looks like Something was Missing. :doh: That might explain the exhaust fumes. :zzzz:

And one stud also broke off.
Have a Great Day,

so one side was missing an exhaust manifold "donut" and a stud? That would leak a bit.
