Coolant was done with the new radiator. Brake fluid was done when I redid the drum brakes and wheel cylinders... but next step is trying to figure out why the wheel cylinders are still leaking... maybe defective?

Were the wheel cylinders new or rebuilt? Rebuilt usually have the bores honed out and sometimes they are honed too much and the seals are too small for the larger diameter.

I'm not sure. I bought them from Autozone and thought they were new

I finally finished both differential fluid changes this weekend following Ken's 1985 Refurb thread.

Sanded and painted the diff covers and replaced the AMC 20 torx bolts worth standard hex bolts. See finished pix!

The only issue I hit was the AMC 20 omix ada gasket I ordered was to big. In my haste, I opted for just using a lot of gallery maker. In retrospect, I should have cut out a section of the cork gasket to make it fit... But oh well. Time will tell if it holds. At least I got that gunky grey gear oil out and saw no issues with the gears!

Now with photos.

Also- side note- may have found my brake leak. One of my bleeder bolts was loose. Will have to re-bleed and drive around to see if that was the only leak. *Fingers crossed for being able to stop safely!*
