Re: All cleaned up and nowhere to go.

I'm not sure about the horn mount. This came back to me in a box from the machine shop that did the engine so this was bolted to the engine somewhere i have to assume.

Re: Differential cleanup and reseal

Well KULTULZ, I'm probably a bit on the clueless side of this so I appreciate the advice. I assume the pinion and axle seals have set and dried out and need replaced.
