i would pull the motor assembly by removing the 2 bolts on that
crossmember. yes someone welded it up , but if spacers are correct it should be fine.
(check by alignment job after you are done with it)
the axles will come out of the backing plates. i would remove the yokes
(steering wheel puller works good , after removing the bolt and washer in the
center ) put the bolt back in the end of the axle without the washer then
use the puller. might just as well check , rebuild axle bearings while its
apart that far , new u joints also. clean it all up good and paint it with
por 15 or a good rustoleum clear if you want stock look.
you are running into a few things that are not super correct , but will
work fine. hardest part is cleaning parts. a good bench grinder with 2
different wire wheels (fine and coarse ) does most of my work , after soaking
in solvents and drying well. sometimes i resort to sand blasting metal
parts , but not often. cheapest way around here if you do not have a blaster ,
is to check with your local cemetery monument outfit , they usually have
good equipment and will work for @$1.00 a minute (worth it , they are fast
and good at it)
example , 5 very rusty rally wheels cost me $60.00, and came out like new.
hope this helps.
my project yesterday was to part out a 63 greenbrier...such fun rushing to
beat weather , on a car trailer in the side yard.
regards, tim colson pictures soon!
