  1. For future reference I did figure something out for these bushings. The outer transverse link rubber bushings have the same OD and length for the body of the bushing. The inner sleeve has a bigger ID but the original crossmember inner sleeve fits perfectly inside the new bushing, The new bushing also has a slightly shorter sleeve so you have to make that distance up with a spacer. Luckily I had some old transverse link bushings that I was able to pull the inner sleeve and cut to size. I should have taken some pictures but I was pushing to get it done and the tranny in.
  2. Thanks for the info on Precision shims. Looks like they can make what I need
  3. Thanks for the links. These places seem to have stock thickness but nothing else near that. I will call them and ask anyway
  4. I just started my motor with my rebuilt head and once it heats up it sounds like someone is beating the valve cover with a hammer. I reused the cam, rockers, and lash pads since my motor guy said they were in good shape. New valves, guides, and seats were installed. I took a look inside and first found that they had three rockers in the wrong spot (per their engraved numbers). I also saw no markings on the lash pads so I'm guessing that they just put them wherever. I looked at the wear pattern for the three swapped rockers and nothing was centered. I want to replace (or regrind) my rockers and get new lash pads but I can't seem to find where you get lash pads near the stock thickness. I'm guessing based on my wear patterns on the current rockers I'm going to need to get different thickness lash pads. Does anybody know where to find lash pads near the stock ~ 0.120" size?
  5. Here's a couple shots of the engine (mostly) installed.
  6. That makes me feel feel better. I have no clue what would go there. Thanks
  7. It's wider than the speedo cable ans I'm pretty sure it belongs on furthest back isolator
  8. I took no pictures and for the life of me I can't remember what goes in the "hose" section of this isolator clamp. Please help! And please ignore my poorly plated fuel lines!
  9. Thanks for the links. I'll check these out.
  10. Unfortunately it seems every manufacturer and z store ignores the fact that the 1972 bushings are actually different from all other years.
  11. Bumping this topic to see if anyone might have some ideas. I'm getting close to the point of tranny install. Thanks
  12. Looks like that worked just fine. Looks like a similar "before" color as mine. Here's my stands with wheels. My daughter was in charge of lowering it down.
  13. Thanks! Putting it back together with the everything being so clean is awesome. Getting it on and off the trailer was fun. Basically I would jack the car up by the frame rails high enough to get it on the stands that are in my first picture. Then I would jack the stands up and insert scaffolding wheels. It was a tilt bed trailer so I could roll it off.
  14. After 6 months at the body shop I finally got the shell home! Progress as of this weekend. Starting to come back together! I can never seem to get a good picture in my garage- probably a combo of the bright LED lights and my crappy 6 year old phone! Can you spot the hidden headlight relays? I'm also running a ZX alternator so the voltage regulator does nothing more than hide the necessary diode. More to come!!!
  15. Bumper pieces ready to head out to the chrome platers.
