Another little update

I bought solid shifter bushings for a W58/V160 off ebay for $10



Then while installing them I broke the tripod, and I had to use some redneck engineering and buy some JB Weld, and Superglue it together. Seems to work for now. In the meantime may try to source out another (which has been a PITA, I can't find any for sale)




The bushings definitely increase the feel of the shifter and makes it more precise when shifting. It used to be a guessing game for me whenever I would shift from 2nd to 3rd.

Did you ever go out to any of the meets? I used to go to the In N Out meet on the west side every Friday.

I actually am running a Soarer R154. Since the late series W58 and all V160's both run the tripod setup, I was able to purchase bushings made for either of those trans and it worked no problem.

Never made it to the in-n-out meet. Hopefully I can find some sc folks who meet up in the valley on any sort of schedule!

]Hey guys, another little update. I had to replace my HVAC unit in order for me to have working AC.

While the dash was out, I went ahead and started SEM'ing my interior with black.

It was a complete PITA to remove the dash and HVAC unit. Took me a total of three days to remove and replace everything, plus paint.

Also thanks to Turbodreamz for selling me the HVAC unit.









Finished Product

Thank you!

I don't blame you for being lazy haha. It really is a PITA to take everything apart. I now have cracks in all my AC vents, I completely broke off the wooden surrounding the far right passenger vent, and there was a lot of cursing haha.

Other then that it looks awesome though!

I broke my tripod too, had to take it to a welder and get it professionally done. I was afraid that it wouldn't hold up while banging gears lol.

Hey guys, just a quick update. I pulled the motor and tranny again. I'm 99% sure I blew my rear diff, below I included a video. I'll update you guys in a few days when I pull the rear diff out.

Can't remember how to embed the vid

Wait, so you took out the HVAC unit, painted the dash then put the unit back in?

Yes and no haha. I took the old HVAC unit that had a broken tab inside of it. Whenever I would brake the AC would get super hot, and whenever I gave it gas then AC would come back. The flap that control whether to block the heater core or let it pass was broken inside, and there is no way to fix it except replacing the whole unit.

So yes, I took the unit out, replaced it, and painted the dash at the same time.
