We will see how it works out. The UCAs seemed to be well made but the ball joints are a bit unknown. I asked the vendor what they were for and they had no idea, so I will take them apart and then see what they look like. I am hoping that they are actually the right joints (as in for a 70 B body); if so will replace them with Moog units.

Its been awhile and while i have not worked on the RR, I have gotten other things done. I finished putting the digital readout (DRO) on my lathe and got my machine shop sorted. I worked on a 14 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner for a friend of my wife; had to do the brakes, put not headlight bulbs in and had to wire in some driving lights.

I also began work on the 69 Plymouth wagon. I decided to do the EFI conversion first after getting the 3rd member out of the rearend (which I am replacing with a 3.91 Suregrip. Without the 3rd member it provided a lot of room. I removed the gas tank (not an easy chore especially since it contained 13 gallons of fuel). So I got it out and discovered that the where it mounts in the rear was all rotted out, so... now I have to fix that and since no one repops anything for this wagon, I have to make it. Fortunately I have pretty much any tool I might need outside a power hammer. Problem is that that the panel is too large to hold and bead roll the reinforcement ribs, so now I am making a table for my bead roller...

Here are some pictures of the rot and my bead roller project.

Nice bead roller!  Do you have details of it posted anywhere (All MetalShaping, Metal Meet, ...)?

No I don't, it is a heavy modified Harbor Freight unit. I use it quite a bit but this current project requires the table so thats what I am building..  :bigsmile:

Finally finished bead roller table... came out pretty decent and it allowed me to use my English wheel after TIG welding two pieces of 18 gage together. I wish I had bought one of those years ago..
