yes! every two years i sweat it out.
this time i had to find a new smog place that would work with me.
i should have bought that header 15yrs ago, when my original exhaust manifold cracked, but it finally happened.
haha- didya note the studs? corona avoidance made me scrounge an assortment.
ordering parts online can be disappointing. i am learning what to expect from where.

today was spent pucking up the front springs to set ride height, and resetting toe.
replaced the front brake pads.
still need to modify skid stuff, but that becomes more interesting later in "the season".
spend a lot of time just looking. sometimes i'll paint something just to watch it dry.

just to attempt to protect a recently(and expensively) made exhaust change, i thought a cat cage might be cobbled together.
this is how it is developing...…
[Linked Image from i301.photobucket.com]
looking over some plating scraps for cover/skid - that side was always exposed, and that old cat had a fractured matrix from taking some hits.
should weigh this extra stuff- bet we're gonna be mabe 30# heavier?

some scrap, including modified old skidplate, is beginning to cover things up.

tried to show pic here...….

as i've been crawling around, I've been watching powersteering fluid seep out of both the pump and the steering gear.
really annoying.
i bought seal kits for each.
this should be interesting.

spent today on the steering box.
spent a lot of time figuring out how to disassemble the thing, then more in the reassembly.
all a bit of a circus act, as i figured a method of reloading the ball bearings into that screw!
perhaps it won't leak anymore.
perhaps it'll still work.
i bolted it back home. mabe tomorrow i'll try the pump.
mabe i'll figure out how to post pics again...…..

bit of a setback.
i broke the steering pump.
popped the shaft thru the housing as i torqued the thing back together.
duh.
didn't consider that possibility.
replacement search underway...…...

got steering back.
my steeringbox service seems to have been successful- no leaks spotted.
gino's auto wreckers(my favorite used parts source) had a pump for me.
gotta wrap up this project and go fishing.
