    Caravan?

    If a guy was to want to join an East Coast caravan, where might I join that? I've got no problem driving East a bit to join a Westbound caravan.

    Crazy High $

    A speedo shop that rebuilds old clusters but they don't put a coat of paint on the bezel when it's all apart? Maybe that's extra?

    Ad says studded snow tires included. So maybe that's not a great selling point if he's driving it around in the snow? Let's not bug him about it though or you'll get put in a spam folder. ;>)...

    Subbed Out

    I don't have a press that will do the job so I had it done by Hewitt Alinment in Stockton, CA. The owner (Tony) has been doing front ends for over 50 years. I learn a lot from him every time I go...

    Got Some Potential There

    That's a keeper. Hopefully they have the trim in a safe place and the broken off pieces of that horn ring.

    Wow

    $5500! Is it just me or does that seem like it's a little on the high side for a stripped VCV? Too bad about that grill being gone. Donor 1st gen grills are not so easy to come by. Looks like...

    Progress

    The axle is back in hand with new kingpins installed. Now I'll clean it up in preparation for prime and paint. Since pics are down here, I've shot a few videos to keep you updated.

    Yes

    Mike's is a G10 and he's right about the shops big and small not stocking king pin bushings. 5 years ago I had a big rig shop install king pins on my 69 G10. When I brought in this 1/2 ton axle and...

    PS

    That is the "guide" that I used to install PS on the LedZeppVan. There are some gaps in this guide that caused me considerable extra effort but to be fair, JoyRide (RIP) clearly stated that it was...

    Not that easy, wish it was..

    The king pins are typically not reusable and minimum charges at machine shops are pretty high. I've tried many already and most are super busy. I have a list of all the shops within 50 miles and I...

    Parts!

    I can't seem to even locate any Nylon king pin bushing sets for Mike. Rare parts has been out of them for months. I've been on their waiting list at least that long. My advice is to go out and...

    Stuck?

    Stuck in the "Van Lab". Wow, sounds pretty bad to be in there. With reviews like that, the only thing that will be stuck in there from now on is crickets. ;>)

    Not Right Away

    Thanks Vulch, I appreciate it. For this job, the king pin replacement has taken priority over the disc brake conversion but I'll try to get a video of that. Right now I'm trying hard to locate some...

    Yes, Rare

    This is an ideal choice if you have a 2nd gen with a six cylinder and for some reason you don't want to convert to the MK VIII electric fan. This is the 1st time I've seen one of these on eBay. Not...

    Rochester Monojet

    I've got several Monojets but they're all cores. These were pulled from VCVs over the years and then mostly just sat. I've rebuilt a few when requested but as far as known good, used, sitting on...
