still taking her apart.
found a tube to put in front, so i threw the budget away.
figure to pull the motor, trans/transfer, and related.

(try add pic)
motor seems o k, but has some oil leak- mabe front seal, and waterpump weep. timing and wpump parts are ordered.
the transmission should be interesting. it shows seepage also, and is reported to "burn up the clutches" if you use low gear. has a screw in the shift mech. to prevent selecting 1.
transfer case will becme spare parts.
i figure on seeing her stance, before doing a body lift, but figure at least 1 1/2".
gonna go bit*h at photobucket.

happy new year- a bit of an update.
i suspect she will be labeled "suzitoo".
currently on blocks, sans drivetrain and much of the interior.
while impatiently awaiting critical parts, the body has been lifted 2", and i expect to lift the gas tank @that much(experience).
also mocking up the power steering linkage, 'cause the manual box is shorter, using a longer steering shaft.
the body lift helped some, but it still needs to shrink a bit.....
she no longer has ac, but the compressor may be useful in the future.
i have resisted the urge to start cutting, until i have a few more parts to fondle.
i have procrastinated re:picproblem- sorry

stuff has been happening.
i was able to fondle some parts that made some sense, so i hacked some metal off the chassis and added a panhard bracket on the driverside.
also chopped some brackets/mounts off the front tube, cleaned some of that up, and tacked on some brackets for the links and springs.
been taking some pictures as it progresses, and will figure that out sometime.
i spend a lot of time looking, but suzitoo is coming together.........

it's nice to read about forward progress, even if suzitoo is snoozing a bit. pearl has set for eight years.

once i got the front axle tube mocked up to see how it fit, i pulled it out again.
found that some gorilla had serviced the tranny- managed to force the wrong nut onto the shifter shaft, but i may have been able to make some new threads......
reinstalled the transmission/transfercase, then stuck the motor back in.
gonna spend some time hooking stuff up before i put the tube back in
movin' right along.

suzitoo has the front tube in place- all sprung up.
gonna be interesting to see this on the ground.
took two trips to the wreckers to end up w/a complete rear axle that should be modifiable.
it seems thin. mabe i can add some structure.
i expect to have a rear axle tube in place sometime soon.
learning new things by blundering on......

ohoh, learning curve strikes!
not all axles are the same, and i got the wrong one.
expensive lesson, but at least i got straightened out before i got any further.....
started hacking and grinding and nothing was lining up right.
what did i say about blundering on? haha
