"White Knight"! "Night Light"! Who cares.:shaking:
Subscribed! Now get on with the build!:D
HAHA, perfect, project night light! I'm sure the preschoolers would love that!

x2, less name, more build, although I'm one to talk, my next build has a name and that's about it. :(

Its not the rotor you will have issues with--its the camiper. And I have done a # with stock 8 lug stuff--just grind the caliper to fit the 15" wheel..

yea i took a closer look at it today and it just barely hits. i think i might just get some small wheelspacers for the front, like some 1/4 in ones.

i managed to get the interior all stripped and put one of the rear springs up for mock up. should have pics sometime tomorrow... camera died:flipoff2:

I put the pulleys back on today except for the idler because the bearing is bad. i also put the rear main seal retainer on and goo'ed the oil pan on with right stuff.


i have also got the 4.7 gears in my rear case and the case adapter butted up to it. the front case is getting drained overnight and will probably get pulled apart within the next couple days.



tomorrow i am going to swap some parts of the 2 York pumps i have to make one working one. the taper on the clutch of the unpainted one was cracked so i am going to slam the whole clutch assembly off the newer one on it. i have to use the unpainted one because i have to mount it sideways and it has the inlet on the right side for that.

I had the same thing happen got to looking fro a new one at the regular places. I/E Autozone Advance and O'Relly's. I also went to Toyota to see if I could get the bearing, No go they wanted to sell me the whole Idler for something like $135. At that time I said to hell with power steering. I passed a Napa on my way home from Toyota just to see and they had the bearing. They did so you can check there, I just don't remember the part#.
