Re: "The Bucket" project diary

Put the 14 bolt on the floor and got the D60 frontend in the stand now.
Tore it apart to check out condition on everything. All bearings are like new. The truck it came out of was definetly maintenanced well... I bet I cleaned out 5 lbs of grease in this thing. Oven cleaner & a toilet brush are the gig for cleaning housing inside & out.
Had planned on sandblasting it this weekend but rained the whole time, so cleaned up the 56" rear springs (decided to go with these out of the donor CUCV truck instead of the 2" lift ones purchased earlier). Took the spring pack apart & tossed 3 of them, so that'll be 6 leaves now. Got them all cleaned up with a flap wheel & coated with POR.
Waiting on new seals & kingpin bushings to arrive.
