Then its time to get the motor and trans sorted and mated.

Fresh rear main seal, freshly surfaced flywheel, proper Japanese pilot bearing and Exedy clutch kit including throw-out bearing.
And after the typical nonsense getting things lined back up, engine and trans were mated and in the chassis. (y)

Flipped end for end in my small shop, and working on the rear of the chassis.

Axle out, suspension blown apart, fuel tank out, lower geared (5.12) rear third member installed, chassis painted, and looking good. :cool:

Axle is now waiting on parts from Japan, both wheel seals, seal protectors, etc.
Rear wheel bearings are in good shape, so they will be reused.

Fuel tank back in, fresh fuel filter...
Axle on the bench waiting for axle seals and such, but it still allowed me to sort out the fresh rear brakes.

Axle prep... when repacking the (seemingly) useable rear wheel bearings, I noticed the inner race spinning on the axle shaft.
So the retainer was cut, and the bearing, that SHOULD be press fit, slipped right off the axle shaft.
We shall see how a new bearing fits. But I expect the need for bearing loctite compound.
