Kermit has done a lot of sitting in the workshop and contemplating life whilst other things get done (or not) around the house.

I did a couple of small things after the Datsun Day
1. Replaced the tie rod ends - didn't like it that the inners didn't have grease nipples (and couldn't get the bungs out to put some in)
2. Adjusted the front brakes up - too much travel on the pedal - still travel more than I like (How can I fix this?)


I have a few more things to do before I am happy to take him off for a roadworthy
1. Re-upholstering the front seats - I thought seat covers were enough but the springs are saggy and the misses wants it done
2. Fuel gauge not working - probably just a wire off somewhere
3. Keeps jumping out of reverse and sometimes the shifter will go into reverse but the gear won't engage - dunno on this one - anyone got ideas short of replacing the gearbox?

Anyway I'm a lot closer to RWC and club plates but not rushing anything.

Just replace the gearbox. And then play with the one in there to fix it.

Reupholster the seats.
As for the brakes is it the stock single or a dual master cylinder ?

Adjust the rear brakes. The pedal travel is combination of the front brake + rear brake. I like to adjust them tightly (Drum Brake Adjustment)

Bit of an update:
Front seats now reupholstered
gear box - replaced with a later model one

Otherwise:
I cut up a couple of new engine stands to make a rotisserie for the yella terra shell... getting closer to finishing that too.
Too cold to work outside much
