Put old yellers transaxle on the engine stand. Lift with the legs! Draining, cleaning, resealing, taking out the backlash slack. Relieved to see the back up switch works.

Continued old yeller teardown. Dropped the transaxle, gave me access to the heaterbox, brake lines, took them all out so I can prep and paint the area. Parts shelves almost full.

Baseball is my favorite sport by far, die hard Cub fan since 1968. Trout is definitely a once in a lifetime talent. To think 12 teams (I think) passed on him in the draft....

Took the day off working on Ole Yeller to help my buddy push his recently acquired 1960 NSU Prinz into his barn. Never seen one of these in person. Rear engine air cooled 2 cylinder!

Wheels came out good. Every once in awhile you have to get out of the grease and oil and work on the jewelry. Now back to the grease and oil. This 140 is easily the grimiest I've ever taken apart. Using a paint scraper to remove 1/4" of grime before dropping in the parts soaker

Old Yeller continues. Decided I didnt like the gray color of my Summit rallyes, so I deflated the tires, cracked the bead, and slid carboard in and painted them Corvette switchblade silver (will paint the Corsa tail panel the same). Oh, and the engine came out

Continued old yeller teardown. First time top shroud was ever off I believe. Nice to see the correct RB stamp on the case cover. Also found a donor "face" to fix the crappy work done on the front end.

Was wondering what the negative impact of getting rid of the corner weights on my '65 convertible would be. Are they really necessary for daily driving? Anybody out there just take them out?

Kind of bumming...continued tearing down old yeller today. I though I saw some cracking in the paint on the left front fender. Took out the headlight buckets and convertible "weights". The car has been hit and repaired poorly. Also the metal where the buckets bolt to was rusted away on the top side and filled in with bonds. I think the right bucket was held in by 4 of 8 or 9 screws.

Every viton front and rear main seals have leaked that I have seen. It was just a mix of original crank and different bellhousing. It's actually a good way to move the seal lip off a wear pattern on the crank.
