Some pics of Opie's 60 getting some love. A little front axle refurb. They were leaking worse than the power steering pump.

Doing the front brakes and all new bearings while they're apart. Need to get the rotors turned and finish the reassembly. More to come.
Sweet! Yeah I did the front brakes on my 60 at the same time I did the front knuckle rebuild when I first got it. Kind of a no-brainer "while you're in there". Just don't forget to bed the pads to the rotors when they are first installed.

Getting new rotors too. Old ones were too thin to turn again.

Hey Jeff, any chance you might be able to help me out with a few minutes of your time to weld a nut onto the diff fill plug? This one is stuck tight and all rounded off.

Sure, no problem. I would also suggest a method that has worked well for me in several instances, where I cut a slot onto the surface of the buggered fastener so as to get a large screwdriver onto it.

I couldn't get it to turn with a pipe wrench, so I doubt I could get better leverage with a screwdriver. . Hoping the heat from welding a nut on, and a good 6 point socket will do the trick.

Waiting on a couple of parts from Toyota. Will you be available sometime later this week once I have it rolling?

Yes, the only thing I have on my evening agenda is the meeting tomorrow night.

Thanks for the help on the Diff Plug Jeff.

All finished with the knuckle job.

We ended up doing the birf repack, seals, bearings, pads, rotors, drain and fill on the diff with new plugs and a new fuel pump.

No water thankfully, but very very black.
