Nowhere at the moment....waiting for some cash to build up so I can pay for machining services. Also waiting for my NOS cam to arrive on the slow boat from Germany.

Seat belts mounted


High temperature paint on the brake shoes - rear linings need to be changed


Whipped the brush holder out of the the SEV-Motorola alternator - dirty inside


Brush holder before cleaning


clean slip rings


Remounting. (the bolts holding the brush holder in are 1/8 inch, which is neither nor 5.5 mm. American parts!

Rear brakes mounted - handbrake connected and able to hold the car! A good step forward.

Curious as to why you didn't install a new spring kit? There may not be a kit part number available but you could match up the springs from a picture guide & make up your own spring kits.

They are new old stock springs and needed a coat of paint. Nothing wrong with them. I have another full set of NOS springs too but they too would be painted before installation. Replicas are available in Europe but they're not as good as the originals, tending to snap.
