ReCasting Bushings with Polyurethane

I’ll be using plastic for sure. I’ve got some of the chopping board stuff. Nothing sticks to it. I’ll try to document the process.

I checked the Shore scale for rubber tires which is 60A and ordered the same polyurethane.

Fun fun fun. Probably get to this next month sometime. Stay tuned...

Where to get bushings? L300

These are for the Automatic transmission. I found the correct ones on Amayama.com. The manual transmission exploded view is below the A/T view , which I had not noticed. :roll:

Starter Motor Issues

Ah, the jump to worst case scenario... :shock: I noticed the coolant expansion reservoir was empty on Saturday. I looked everywhere for a leak but couldn’t see any clues.
