Rebuilt motor after spun #1 Bearing
manoteal
Lost rear wheel due to no cotter pin! Thought rust would hold nut on- wrong!
Was on Freeway and lost oil to motor from angle of car.
Replaced original carb with rebuilt, rebushed throttle shaft
And riveted throttle plate one by Keith.
Dizzy is original AirCooledNet SVDA with Pertronix I
Heater boxes hooked up- LOVE the heat!
Valve on vacuum line to air cleaner is to ‘control’ heat to carb-
One in air cleaner is stuck on ‘always hot’ preheat air to air cleaner
On cold days leave open- on hot days shut off for cool air.
Thermometer is for checking under hood temps and oil temp in dipstick hole occasionally- close to ‘waste air’ heat gauge on dash after 10-15 minutes or so.

39. Install the Drop arm nut, with the 30mm (1 3/16") Socket and 1/2" drive torque wrench, torque the nut to 58 ft/lbs.
Look to see if the Cotter key hole is lined up with the valley in the Castle nut.
No, set the torque wrench to 80 ft/lbs and slightly tighten the nut until the Cotter key can be dropped in.
If you reach 80 ft/lbs and still no Cotter pin hole. Take the nut off and start over.

Double cab heater tube
nlorntson
Here is the forward heater tube from a 1963 doublecab. The smaller tube goes to an inlet in the bulkhead for the rear seat passengers.

The covering is a grey vinyl with a fiberglass or asbestos type insulation.

The grey cover is held together with a ziploc type seam longitudinally and metal straps with the cotter pin on each end.

The tube to the bulkhead heat is a heavy paper and it's held to the main heater with the large round clamp.

The c-clip fell off. The linkage was intact, but sloppy. A temporary repair was made with tiny vise grip pliers. A permanent replacement was made by drilling the linkage and using a cotter pin and washers.

Front End Project

Pic 26: Removed inner tie rod ends to remove entire rods. Cleaned up knuckles and spindles. Installed new rubber bushings on stabilizer (I have new clamps as well). The most time consuming part of all of these three tasks was removing a stubborn cotter pin from the tie rod bolt.

NOTE: At this point I have spent 17.5 total hours on this project.

Back side (the side that faces the rubber) is flat where the two nubs on the side are.
