Boyd's makeover

Evening all. After a good 3yrs off of the road, I am finally ready to show some progress on the rebuild. Not complete yet, but wanted to share some pics. Note - they are in no particular order. https://i.imgur.com/ITaoeYN.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YQJjMER.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VBu4mNJ.jpg https://i....

Re: Adding PAS

One more thing I remember, is that the reservoir goes into a bracket, which is then welded in place.
Make sure you get it.

There was a chap in the for sale section I bought mine from - NWT25 I think?
His name was Mick or Nick, and will send all the bits as one order.

That’s what I did anyway

Re: Adding PAS

Yeh, fitted mine a couple of years ago.

You can buy the front-to-rear hydraulic hoses from Brickwerks.
Need a different fan belt and pulley with an additional groove if I remember correctly.

Then obviously PS rack, and pump.

Might be something else I have forgotten.

Re: Engine Swap

Well maybe you can do it but it will take some thought. I'm happy to take as many pics as you like of a late system take a pic of all the late pipes you have do you have the bleed rail? No, I don't. I think, the only things I need are the bleed rail, distribution tower, and a way of getting from ri...

You could follow th...

Re: Heater blower motor.... And stuff....

Seriously though Meggles, if you need another pair of hands, I will help if you get down this way.
I know how hard some things are after a shoulder op. I've had two myself.!

And Jim - I thought I was losing my marbles and missing something.
I will follow that route too :ok
