    New window regulator clips went on the driver's side today and I tightened my vent window pivot screw.

    I also installed a used front plastic guide for the driver's side window. Mine was missing so it was noisy, this made it nice and tight.

    I also found the flasher holder and secured it properly. No more dangling parts.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm glad to see you are still at it, even if only little by little! Perhaps in some two years I can start putting the finishing touches on my current CS?

    I think it's a bit rude to hijack others' threads, but I thought I would pass on what I've been up to the past few days. And I believe I'm finally feeling guilty enough that in the near future, I should start my own build thread!

    Some before and after (or perhaps more correctly ongoing) passenger side pics.

    This may be a dumb question, but where'd you get those window clips? I went to the website on the bag and nothing pulled up on their site. I googled the part number and came up with an old thread here announcing their availability. Did you recently get them, or is it something you've had sitting around

    I think there are even cheaper options if you do a little digging.

    Thanks. I saw those when I looked, was just curious if that company stopped producing them, in which case I'd buy them sooner rather than later

    I bought mine last week and am very pleased with them. They slid right on and were shipped fast. I dabbed a little anti seize on them for good measure. The price is fantastic compared to others out there.

    I had an hour to burn today so I started on the front spring bushings.
    I was disappointed to see that I will have to find replacement shackles as the old ones have the bolt head and shackle as one piece. I do not want to add any major lift to it, so I am looking for some stock looking plain jane shackles that are about 2.5¨ hole to hole. I am picking up a parts Scout Thursday, so maybe it will have what I need......
    Anyone have any recommendations for shackles?

    I decided to tackle the rear spring bushings today. I am still waiting on the OEM style rubber ones to arrive (should be tomorrow) and I wanted to get something done with the parts I had on hand.
    This job has been well documented, but I will say that having the right tools makes this jobs SOOOO much easier.
    Anyway, here are some pics of the progress:

    Just came upstairs for lunch and saw your bushing work. Nice job! And many thanks for including the Part Numbers/Brands/etc. They will come in very handy for me and many others going forward! Now I have to go back to my shop and finish with a firewall patch fab :smartass:

    I got the rear differential oil changed.
    It was fairly clean and the gears looked good.
    I've noticed that when the engine gets warm I have a decent amount of lifter tick.
    My fuel gauge started working, but comes and goes. Not sure if it's a ground issue or a sending unit that is faulty. The gauge tests good.

    Today the Scout did a photo shoot for a band video. It was all shot by a drone and was really cool to see the capabilities of the camera and drone working together.
    It is for the band Clutch. I am supposed to get a link to the final product along with some still shots that I will share here.
    Here is a shot I took of the drone and the Scout in the background.

    I got a new poly body bushing kit from IHPA and some plastic wire holders that pop in like the OEM ones.
    I also ordered 4 new shock absorbers from Rockauto. Nothing fancy just the Gabriel Classic model.
    I still need to figure out my fuel gauge issue. I think it is the only thing left that isn´t working on the Scout as it is supposed to. I want to pull the sending unit, but I have too much gas right now. I guess I have to go for a drive this weekend.

    I purchased the same wire holders. Perhaps in two years I can actually use them! And consider yourself fortunate that you can get rid of some extra gas by driving around for a bit - I just seem to have a never ending supply of gas. :ban:

    Let me know if you determine that your sending unit is bad - I might have an extra I bought last year as one of my tanks wasn't registering on the gauge but that was (presumably) due to the wire not being connected. I would still need to test them to make sure they work though. Did you figure out your lifter noise issues?

    Yep, I added an extra quart of oil per recommendations on here in other threads and it got much better.
    Thank you for the sending unit offer, I'll keep you posted on here.
    Have a great weekend!

    New shock absorbers arrive tomorrow, so I started pulling the old ones.
    The fronts are OEM IH and the backs probably are too.
    It'll probably ride a little better with the new ones.

    I've got new pinion seals coming, the front axle has a pretty good leak. I've never done this job, but have replaced a rear seal on a T98 transmission and it seems pretty straightforward. [​IMG]
