Here is where I found it in scott's valley, at least it sat under a canopy for about 4 years the po claims. He explained to me the power steering pump started leaking so he parked it and never got around to fixing it.... He bought a rebuild kit for pump and other goodies but it just sat. He also threw in a new 12 circuit painless wiring harness, aluminum dash panel for round gauges, a box with a complete weather striping kit and window gaskets also a highlift jack and 2 gas cans for the rear swing out carrier bumper. I was totally happy with this buy for sure

After priming the oil pump and changing all the important fluids I had it up and running great. I found out the carb needed a rebuild so I handled that.I took it out for some testing

After testing it out the starter took a major dump and started smoking and parts of it were loose, luckily I had a spare at the shop that I had removed from a previous tear down of my bosses old 1210 pickup.after that she was back up and rallyeing around but I had no traction with the lil bald 31" a/t so I switched them out for some 33" m/t that I had from the tear down of the other 78 rally I recently tore down. Here is a pic of it befour tear down

I changed the plugs today and installed a k&n filter. Also I thought the u joints were going out but I changed the driveshaft out for a larger stronger one and still clunks into gear. Im thinking it is the rear end goin bad but the front does it also in 4wd. Is it possible the tcase could be worn out bad enough to cause this?????
