Just not make much progress. Tried to do the LPPLP yesterday, but that insulation stuff on the block is hard as concrete! I can't get a direct shot at it so I'll have to start pealing away layers. Now is when I really need a garage.

Did some work on the 92. New master cylinder, hopefully no more leaks. New upper king pin bushings, still have the wobble.

I did the same thing a few years back and had the same results, so if I have time this year, Im going to do the lower bearings.

I'm hoping the transmission fiasco is now behind me. Drove it around and it's working good now. No leaks, but now my speedometer is acting up. Need to crawl under it when the flood waters recede. Did get my old modified H1C on the 92 yesterday. Runs a little better, but I need to turn up the fuel to make use of it. The transmission on the 91 was getting sticky, so I changed the oil throughout the whole running gear. Shifts great again.

What oil did you use in the '91?

Havin some trouble with the OD on the 92. Ever once-n-awhile it drops in and out a few times after a slight throttle increase. Otherwise it works as advertised. Got a spare TPS, haven't had time (or motivation) to swap it out.
Really can't say I'm overly impressed with the performance after the overhaul. Some improvement, but not what I was expecting.
