I believe this is the source of the speedo issues. If you watched the video I posted earlier it was doing "90" in a 20, haha.

And out came the trans.

This is a little further than I thought we were going to go.

We installed a new clutch.

And put the trans back in. The top bolts were interesting to get hand started but a few extensions and swivels we were in business.

As my grandfather used to say, "I could tighten it from in the truck." He was a weird guy.

And installed and mostly buttoned back up. We also ran new wires to the reverse light sensor.

Anyway, we had some parts on order and they finally came in. We buttoned up the exhaust, driveshaft, and shifter and put it back on its wheels.

It sat there for about 15 minutes before the interior started coming out. The seats look pretty good, not sure if we are going to redye them or just clean them for now.

I also paid way too much for these AC hardlines, but I had to have them.

Anyway, back to the interior. We pulled the door cards and removed some of the wood trim.

It looks like I am going to learn how to lay a veneer. We may change the color and grain, so we have some samples coming.

We also sent the power steering pump out to be rebuild. At the price it was a bargain. It looks like its ready to ship back to us.

So as of now, we are waiting on the pump and veneer samples. We also need to pick a carpet color and order that kit while the interior is out and then start putting it all back together.
