Changed the fluid in my front diff due to leak. Had to grind off an allen head bolt to get the RR diff skid and cover off. Changed those allen heads out for grade 5 hex and used a lubelocker...

Worth the effort

Finally drove it. I replaced the clutch (complete kit) while I was there I did the universal joints, oil pump, rear main seal, timing chain, plug wires, plugs, dist cap and rotor. Drives great, now for some dirt.

Wheel rotation, oil & filter change.
It's +9 Celsius here today and I am really really tempted to swap the hard top for the soft....

Drove it for the first time in a week with my bad pinion bearing...my hum turned into a raspy wire brush sound and started to get ugly. Guess I'm done driving it till I get it fixed or replaced...

Davey's quoted me $1,850 for a rubi 44
Never monday told me he get me squared away for $1,200 with 4.10 gears.

I came to the realization I don't have the funds currently for this, I spent the last week in PA with my girlfriend (took my old saturn) so as of right now, I am totally lost...
