New Bearings, ball joints, all parts painted, it is just clean and nice to bolt on...



New brakes, new brake calipers...  Money flies... These parts did cost me a fortune... (Eagle spare parts are expensive here in Finland!)

Looks very nice.  Yes, clean parts are happy parts.  Wish there was a way to get parts to you cheaper -- what you just replaced are still fairly reasonably priced here in the States.

When I took things apart I found out that there was no O-ring in left bearinghouse. So, water had run in for 19 years! You can imagine how these two A-40 bearings looked alike They are not easy to find here in Finland...

I did buy new O-rings among other parts. Most of them are for front suspension. Prices are Euros (€).



BTW. There is no rust under gearbox anymore...

Now we know where to get parts.  Are you able to purchase them locally or do you have to send away for them?

A finnish Jeep parts shop have some parts (i.e similar to Jeep) home. But then there are parts that come overseas (U.S. or Sweden).

I have some used parts too... I´m gonna try what happens with Offy and Holley (and home made headers). Better cylinder head and... and...and...
