I reckon a frame around here would be $500+

You guys wait and see the stuff i got planned for the shocks. I got some hdpe for bushes i hope it wont be too hard.

Also if i had to buy bits to fix this it wouldve cost more than a decent 1 so redneck fix is the go

Some of the previous owners handy work. They also thought it was too much work to pull the motor out the side so just cut the top of the frame off on both sides

Done bits and pieces. Had to weld new bit of tube on all the shocks as they were all rusted off. Ground down some plastic for bushes and pressed in ill see how it lasts.

Waiting on seals and brake shoes at the moment the seal into where the es gears are was toast so the shift sensor was full of oil. New shift sensor. I got it half shifting before the new sensor so hopefully fixes it.

Also been cutting heaps of tube out and putting new stuff in

Also pulled diff apart again as it was binding up swapped the shims over. I dont think they got mixed but might have.

Thanks guys.

After pulling that diff down 3 times i noticed the sleeve that the drive shaft goes into is grooved. Will it leak diff oil or is it not really an issue i might see if i can get a speedi sleeve for it maybe

drive shaft grooved at pinion end ?, or oil seal worn too far at pinion end ?. most times the oil seal wears out just inside the pinion end of the rear diff. these seals MUST be replaced, or you will lose gear oil coming out, or crap going into the rear diff if you dont have a good seal around the drive shaft at the pinion.

oh, and all pinion oil seals have lips right there where the drive shaft goes through, with a spring around the underside, out of sight, this keeps the seal tight around the drive shaft.
