Got some goodies to continue the work:
* Top arm rebuild kit
* Copper rings for oil pressure relief valve cap
* Bottom arm to tie rod bolts
* Clutch slave cylinder repair kit
* Gaskets for clutch/brake master cylinders
* Braided hose for hard line to clutch slave cylinder
* New clutch master cylinder
* Blind bearing puller set (the one I had only contained a slide hammer to pull, but wasn't up to the job)
* Stack oil temp gauge (was not in stock when I ordered my other gauges)
Then I continued taking the front suspension apart:
After some fiddling, I got the suspension strut ball & cup out (I put the ball in the drill and forced it out while rotating, couldn't find another way...) and the rear bearing. The front one didn't come out using my "old" puller (it's only a few months old):
I tried heating the arm & pulling, I tried WD40, nothing worked...
But then I used my new puller, although there was not a lot of "meat" to put the legs on....
Finally there was some movement!
Although it almost broke while pulling it out...
After degreasing I put it in a Deox-C bath for a while:
Came out like this:
Cleaned it up a bit more and degreased it using Brake Cleaner:
First layer of Electrox:
Took out the suspension cone and compared it to the new one...
Mounted the new bump stop:
And did something else; bought a Luisi steering wheel on Facebook, which arrived like this:
And after some work, turned into this:
Used Meguiars Leather Cleaner & Leather Conditioner using several brushes and microfibre towels & put some correct bolts in place. After closer inspection it appears not to be leather but rather some rubber like stuff.
Maybe I keep it, maybe I'll have it recovered in leather, maybe I'll sell it and keep my leather Mountney steering wheel. What do you guys think?
