... and left a nearly perfect Euro mount behind....

Have done a goodly number of Euro mounts and a couple of them were just tied up in a tree so the 'yotes wouldn't drag them off. The maggots left them pretty damn clean and only required a little extra work before the peroxide boil.

I've always loved those old Yotas rigged up like this one.

Father in law had one a few years back, similar built, slightly less badass...but anyway, said I could have it. Tried and tried to drive the damn thing but I'm just too big. Broke my heart saying no to that one, he sold it the same day the For Sale sign went in the window.

Need to do aft brakes myself. Have new seals in hand too but made the discovery that Toyota redesigned the axle seals so that they protrude 2mm inboard vs older OEM. The upshot is that the new seals won't ride at the centerline of the bearing retainer ring but sit on the mitered interior corner of same. Leaks are a given unless you swap out bearings and flip bearing retainer ring too so the miter is outboard to give more room for the seal to seat. After pulling the axle, slather grease on the retainer ring and reinstall the axle/hub BEFORE removing the seal to see where the seal rides on the retainer. Compare old to new seal and you'll know if you're going to be into a full rebuild before you pull out the old seals. Savvy?

Mine isn't slobbering so I'll likely just do the brakes and wheel cylinder swap (new cylinders are only about $15 ea.). When she starts slobbering, I'll do the full bearings/seals rebuild.

Hint. Speed Bleeders are the shizl. Even have one on the clutch slave cylinder.
