something I never thought about.I can see how the galv acts as a seam selaer, but if it doesn't, or if the seam opens due to flex and vibration then you will have issues. The seam sealer is pretty important on bulkheads to keep the water out. I had a few inches of sealer come off on my 90 and I started getting water in all kinds of places. Redid the sealer and no more issues. Similar problem on my 109 where the sealer had failed and I ended up replacing the upper part of one of the footwells.

I am still not planning on painting anything, but I will probably spray some waxoyl in just because (even though I doubt I will have an issue given my location and use).

Nothing new really. I started into the timing belt change but need to go get a puller to remove the crank pulley. From the looks of things so far, it seems that the belt has never been changed before contrary to what I had been told.

I've had some issues with the replacement bulkhead parts......which after a long wait have turned out to have center sections built all wrong and has buggared up the whole process. I've got six bulkheads in the que and KB's is next in line. Hope to have it sorted by next week and then I can get KB's onto the jig.

Be patient KB....not with me, the crank pulley.

Soaking in Kroil right now MB. 2 of the 6 bolts that hold the outer pulley to the crank pulley are larger, I suspect these are for a factory tool gear puller, something I can rent down at Autozone.

fawkin kroil.....I don't know what I'd do without that stuff. That and the "red wrench", which is not much help with crank pulleys.

Crank pulley off thanks to the proper tool. Pretty darn similar to the LR diesels as you can see. Just need to rotate the engine to line up the timing marks and then relax the tensioner to swap the belt.

Looks in good shape in there!

Don't take this the wrong way Kevin, but kind of glad to see a human pace on your project. Some of the guys doing builds are machines...

No offense taken at all, I get what your saying. I did this in winter so I would not be rushed to get back on the road, no wheeling now anyways. Between work and this little guy I don't have a ton of free time to spend in a cold garage lately but the pace will pick back up again in the coming weeks.

New timing belt is in and bumper, sliders and Matt Brownes custom radiator support (neccessary with the PS conversion) are back from the galvanizer after a hot dip and powdercoat.

Matt has my bulkhead cut up and ready for new parts but is having supplier problems with replacement parts being ill fitting. I picked up my new fuel tank today. Gone is the crusty box replaced with this SS beauty.
