Hi All,


I drove her back from the Land of Dixie to a temporary home on San Francisco's Treasure Island. It's a great spot but I can not afford the $300+/mo space rental so Easter weekend I drove her up to the ranch in north Mendocino County.



The good news is there is a full wood shop and barn there. The bad news is that I will have a 4 hour drive to work on the bus, making the conversion a much longer process...


ah, good with the bad...

Some pictures from the trip cross country trip. Wheel alignment at the New Mexico Arizona border and her parked on the Streets of San Francisco!

Here is the running gear master maintenance list:


1) Front wheel bearing adjust or replacement (a bit shaky) [$280 parts and seals]

2) Fan clutch replacement [$400]

3) Rear end gear ratio swap out [$500-900]

4) Brake inspection [$0]



The rest of the list is typical conversion removal stuff (seats, floor, door, heaters & AC) but I want to make sure she if fully mobile if needed. I just wish I could keep her closer.

At four hundred for the fan clutch spend a bit more and get a electric or air engagement clutch
