Installed new radiator support bushings - still had the original mounts since 1965 and the bolts unbolted with an overnight Blaster spray soak and a breaker bar Couldn't figure where the squeak was coming from up front - found out where.

I dropped the 35 pound gearbox box on my face, clean up the blood and called it a day, my brother is stopping to help later. my wife got home and had a fit, I told her she missed another chance of cashing in the life insurance policy again.

Glad you’re okay…. Hey, chicks dig scars, so not all bad.

I think I need to replace or build my gearbox, because about ten years ago I used up all the threads within the slack adjustment screw. Now that we’re in AR full time, I need to make this steering gearbox a priority with all the wonderful curves.

Thanks for keeping us posted on your efforts.

I have a local shop that did the rebuilding for $160 this included a new rag joint and pitman arm. They only work on old stuff before 1990. MY pitman arm was shot as the pivot was wobbling badly.

Hadn't driven my 64 for about three years. Over the last couple of weeks replaced fuel pump, filter. Accelerator pump, it had been running a bit rich so took the opportunity to re jet, went from 72's to 68, seems better, need to change plugs.

Attempted to change oil, ran into issues with filter leaks, discovered the gasket that came with the filter was a 16th or less too big. Got another of the same filters, gasket is good to go.

And the driver window came off the track. Haven't addressed that yet. Probably wont let it sit another three years.
