suppose I should have planned this transfercase overhaul differently. waiting on some tooling, before proceeding.
suzi the psychic is disabled in the driveway.
her "new" 4dr front springs seem more lively, and i've lifted the front another 1", by changing puck sizes- took out the 1/2"puck(and rubber cushion),and put in 1" ones.
[Linked Image]
mabe i'll finish up some other little things while she's down.
made some clean-ups to a new fuel filter arrangement we're trying out.
changed out a tire, so suzi has a better spare, in case we need it. trying a bolt-in valve stem, this time.
futzed the fuel pump wires into something more permanent- no more switch dangling outta the dash.....

special tools are cool.

2 are for removing, 1 is for install.

gee- right tool makes it easy.

duh040114
i may have discovered the real reason the '89 transfercase is "too thin".
[Linked Image]
the front case is cast differently, and the gearsets/countershaft are "shorter".
took me some hours of wonderment.
so the later model transfercases(one on right) use longer countershafts, counter gears, and input gear/output low gear sets.
mabe a hybrid gearbox will have to do.

transfercase is back in suzi's guts- had to dodge some rain.

sukces040614
well- the transfercase seems to work fine.
took her for a little test run today, and am pleased. the bad noise on decell is gone.
now i need to get her smogged for the next 2 years.
run coming near the end of the month.

every 2 years suzi needs to pass a smog test.
every 2 years it's a problem.
the stock carburetor is one of those "feed back" things, and not particularly easy to make work when it fails.
for reliability and performance reasons, i end up running a weber, but that is very difficult to make "clean" enough to pass the test.
after a couple of attempts(john rood- best in the biz.), I ended up repairing and re-installing the stocker.
she passed. wah-hoo!
taking a road trip this weekend.


bak042814
suzi the psychic visited her friend, miss bitchy, to see if she can be coaxed into shape for the season.
miss bitchy needs a bit of rehab. before she can go play- axle boots, idler arm, rear spring hangers......
perhaps she will not be ready for the dusy-ershim this season, but she will get out and about.

suzi the psychic was so pleased with the responsiveness of the 4-door springs we put in her front end, that i put some in the rear.
gave her about an inch more perk.
haven't run her(yet),and am considering adding some more puck in front(again), to level her out, before i do so....
may run cancelled in lieu of party plans, so gonna try again mid june.
we'll see if life allows.

also interested in overhauling her front hubs- never looked at the wheel bearings- so i can try my new special socket.

s'prize051714
glad i pulled the right hub off- the wheel bearings are toast. the special socket works.
the bearings cost $35 each, and i need 4 of them...........+ seals. should have them tomorrow.

korecshun051814
found i only needed 2 of those bearings- they come as a single race/2bearing set. still waiting on a couple of grease seals, for the knuckle. also purchased a bearing/seal tool set for my arbor press. used it on one hub.
so much easier than drifting.

aftrmemday052714
finally got her back together again.
"new" rear coils.
a bit more puck in front.
new wheel bearings, and new grease seals.
haven't left the driveway yet.
we shall see.........

tried to get to the backside of hellhole.
[Linked Image]
decided to go thru the rockfall that had always stopped me,
[Linked Image]
and worked in to the ledges.
[Linked Image]
the last ledge was way too big to jump off of- since i'd have to come back thataway. decided to retreat.
utilized some recovery gear to get out.
[Linked Image]
wet a line in the m f american and a bit of the n f american.
went in thru georgetown, saw bear btwn hellhole and french meadow, out via soda springs.
