Thx guys.
I'll probably print off a copy of the parts list soon.
So I can color-code / mark off, or otherwise create a document as to what...
I have secured
needs to be bought
needs to be restored

Oh yeah, forgot a few things...
NOS Beru plugs
NOS vent latches
NOS inner cargo door handles
NOS Eberspächer thermo switch
NOS governor
NOS vacuum advance line
NOS throttle tube
NOS intake manifold
NOS heat riser asbestos thingy gaskets
NOS cab door outer handles/seals & the rest re-chromed/keyed
New ice chest seal
New curtains
New rack rivets
Just sent a grip of steel rack slat screws to get chromed.

Here's the 65-67 jack point...
I've seen some "NOS" ones out there for sale that are missing the features (little tabs) my fingers are touching in these first two pics... of the lifting slot. Go ahead stick your finger in your jack-hole Laughing

I'll single this out - This is not common!
I can only remember seeing one of these on eBay years ago

I obviouisly need to practice up in my 'beating the bushes'.... I actually probably suck at finding parts... but I try.
I apparently missed the huge stash sale. Crying or Very sad
(sad trombone sound... wha, wha, whaaaa)

Found the crank in Canada.
It's not tecnically correct (311 part no)... o-ring type. But... I'm going to buy a new case... so it'll be dual relief & not 100% correct anyway.

Will do Euro rear lenses, front disc brakes, dual cirucuit, 12v.
I'm trying not to bastardize it too much & stay true to form... well, sort of.

This thing isn't driving yet? Smile

Unless it was wired for them, Euro lenses will be a pain.

The deal I struck with the Mrs. was that I can get the westy, but her Ghia vert will be done before the westy. Marriage.... compromise. Happy wife/life.

Easy peasy, actually.

All you have to do is run a wire from the MC to the rear lights.

That would just be changing out the turn signal switch and running another wire I think...

I picked up a Euro turn signal switch, but not sure which method will be used to skin the cat.

Those are better. Do you have the flywheel? Do you have the shims; they are different than the earlier ones as you probably already know?
