Good plan if you can separate the arms from the block.

Getting ready for summer time!!!
Cleaned MAF
Oil change
Topped of tranny/xfer/and diffs
Replaced brake and clutch fluid
Replace a coolant hoses
Drained and refilled coolant.
I also added some brass bling to the engine bay with new coolant fill plugs.
Years ago I added a coolant drain to the bottom radiator hose. It makes changing coolant so much easier!

Cheers...

I just pull the bottom hose generally, but have a big transmission catch basin that I cut the bottom screen out of and place this above my coolant drain pan. Similar to this:

Works pretty good, never spilled a drop on the floor.

Today was slow. Did alot of cleaning and fixing grounds now the the hole is empty. If the weather holds, the hole will get cleaned and painted tomoro. The paint came in today and the winch got redone with the synthetic line. All the vents are now in one place and the harness is MUCH better than before. The pics I took on my phone must have been after all the crap blowing on it. I will get better ones tomoro. I am really impressed how the aluminum shines up.
This is the only pic thats worth a crap to post...
The orange glow is my shirt......

Shit canned the 200tdi exhaust I hAd cobbled together and got 2.5 inch stainless exhaust, less ribrations, sounds better and has a bit more power. It now just has a small muffler.

Swapped out my 10 spline, drum brake rear axle with a 24 spline, disc brake rear axle.
Funny how it takes 3 hours to take the old stuff off and an hour to install the new stuff.
It's also funny that an angle grinder becomes an invaluable wrench for removing rusted parts on so many Rover projects.

Rebuilt the LH front caliper, refurbed the swivel housing, painted everything, installed the new swivel ball, couldn't find the snap rings for the new CV's so I moved on to other things. Removed the RH trailing link and replaced both bushings, started removing the FOX shocks for rebuilding. Now off for a run and yet another memorial day BBQ.

Nice. We need to discuss offline. I'd like to check out the location of those falls.
Always enjoy your food pics for inspiration, Mr. Gourmet. Very nice. My capacity is limited to sausages and beans on the Jetboil, but with better beer (FatTire). ;-).

I can't take credit for the food on this trip. My buddy Allen made the pot roast in the dutch oven. I definitely need to get one! I can't find any of my camp kitchen stuff, but I'm looking into getting some stuff in the near future.
