I'm debating on whether to rebuild it for $80 for all bearings and rings - it will need a new rear seal which they bent up.


I read somewhere you have to seal the speedo connector to keep it from leaking?

Fuck Photobucket - total asshole mercenaries.


I redid mine in Imdur and found it simple/easy and fast.  Not having a full directory structure (albums in albums) is a limitation.


However for long term archiving, the shameless data whore Google might be the safer bet.  While they have Google Photos, I would trust Google Drive more for hosted stuff - but who can say for sure..  Hot links to Gmail pics might also be robust.

Here are pics of my 3 mirrors.  I believe they are left to right:  510, 620, some car type:  (NOTE:  I just bot the "car types," a L&R pair appear to be new from kentigo in Mexico - they were $50 for he pair and $14 for shipping to PA.  THANK YOU SO MUCH KENTIGO!  - they came with new screws but no gaskets or templates - need to find a "flat" template AND an explanation how to use them - it's not obvious.)

UPDATE:  Finally bot a 5-speed from a 1980 720 L20B 2wd from Hooper's in NC.


Here is a link to pics of the trans:  http://community.rat...b-5-speed-pics/

Whew... lucky me.


But not so lucky for my 87 Chevy Turbo sprint I took from PA to SC:  on the way down the windshield got nearly exploded by a rock or stray bullet in WV - it left a very nasty star crack with a ​round circular crack about 2.5" in diameter that was about 220* and incomplete - at the center of this arc the windshield has big deep chunky cracks.  My thought is that if the impact was just a little greater and the circle "ccmpleted", the windshield would have shattered.


​Then that very night, vandals totally egged and taco'd it.


​I suspect Eclipse Insantiy.


Hey, is not having a notched bench seat going to pose any problem?


​Oh, and I'll post pics of the trans when I get back to PA.
