Put that one back together to put on a parts car to make it easier to move around when you steal the good box off of it.

They often get water in them. Bad input seal I suppose.

I have no parts car. This box came off a 65 I scrapped. It sat in a field 30+ years at the dealership. Then 4 years at my house.

So that is why I am going to look for the 2 parts for this box or a 66 box that is rebuidable.

I have a good lead on a 66 steering box. It is being checked for water intrusion. If none, I will get it.

Install sound proofing in rear fender wells and on engine lid.

Installed lighter Assembly in dash. It is a 1966 Impala Casco lighter. Same knob, so it matches when nothing else is in the receptacle. I couldn't see spending the cash for a Rochester assembly as it will only be used for plugging in electronics.

Installed door bumpers, trunk lid bumpers and engine lid bumpers yesterday.

Assembled a rear axle assembly for this car. I will do 2nd one on Sunday.

Then it will be time to exchange out rear axle assemblies and front hubs with new bearings/seals. Also install the new front brake assemblies including backing plates from our Monza coupe.

I will need to rebush rear control arms or get replacements. Bushings are all rotted out.

Donna & I assembled 2nd rear axle assembly today. Made sure we had a left and right backing plate. Still need change out studs to a longer stud for the rallye wheels.

Inspected fronts drums and backing plates with new brakes/cylinders to ensure all was ok for installations on this car. Hubs need studs changed out also.

Located bushing for rear control arms. Should have them in hand in about 10 days.

Received a 66 steering gearbox yesterday. Will go though it Tuesday.

Also received a 65 ashtray to use in the car. It doesn't have the ugly plastic handle on it.

Donna and I got the replacement steering gearbox torn down and cleaned up. Some minor pitting on the teeth but acceptable for use. Once all the grease is out of the housing, I will get to removing the old bushing. Bushing in cap will be done last.

Discovered I have all RH backing plates remaining for the 4 rear axles remaining to be built. Worked on finding a snap in metal cap to close off existing parking brake hole. No luck. Bolt 2 washers and a lock nut will be used to seal off existing hole.

2 of the backing plates have good wear on the wear points. Bad enough to prevent brake smooth movement. Area will be built up with brazing or welding and profiled to original contour.

Removed all the races and bushings fom the caps and housing. Bead blasted all the parts. Installation of parts are next.

Received a replacement PG shifter cable from Clark's. It started leaking a couple weeks ago. Only 740 miles on the cable. At least my clock arrived in time to be installed at same time dash is out for cable replacement. Replacement will happen after Helen. Not enough time left to get rest of tasks finished to take Vair to Helen.

Also we got another 65 ash tray bead blasted today. It will be painted black to match interior and installed. 65 ash trays look much better than 66s. 66s have an ugly large plastic handle.
