Hi Jayson,
great photographs as usual..
that media blaster is excellent...  makes the parts look even better than new.... lol
I have not heard of an autostick gearbox Not having a heat sender...
then again the lights never seem to come on..
unless You are pulling a big heavy trailer up hills... ?? Maybe...

Neutral safety switch is mandatory in most countries....
Reverse lamps were not compulsory in Australia until around 1972-73...
so not fitted until then...

cheers

Lee

WOW JAYSON...  GLAMOROUS   ..... YES

I Love the photographs....

are You going to coat anything with clear paint etc...??

that is the nicest clutch arm I've seen...

You have done an excellent job with the starter motor and clutch servo too....

I've replaced all My bolts with grade 8.8 Hi Tensile and most are zinc coated ..

that blaster is doing an excellent job...

My Son has a bought one and it didn't work properly... He had to modify it...

I'm not sure He even uses it now??


cheers

Hi Jayson
I'm just blown away by Your photos and the actual work You have done.. Possibly the best I can remember.
Just like from the factory before it was put together..

Excellent work...
I just love what you have done to individual parts..
and its easy to see how everything has been dismantled and painted and then bolted back together..

cheers
