Are you running it? From what I've read, they all leak from the tcase seal.

Not yet. Sitting on the shelf waiting to be installed. Haven't heard of them leaking. His shifter setup looks like should seal up a lot better than a glove. Sure hope it does since my t-case does spend some time underwater.

If you don't mind, I'd like to take a look at it.

Got the seats fully mounted 2-3 inches lower, and got everything to knock out the steering today except the ujoint. Poly is having it drop shipped, hopefully it comes in soon as I'd like to make at least a day trip soon.

Got the new $75 Borgeson ujoint in and connected it all up to see where the new mount needs welded. Unfortunately I still have the exact same problem. I can twist the orbital column lock to lock with no binding. I can spin the steering wheel that's connected to the smiley's racing steering quickener and it spins flawlessly. BUT if I connect the two it will barely move 1/4 turn without binding. I'm really at a complete loss. Tomorrow I'm going to try and make a temporary shaft to remove the quickener. I can only think maybe the orbital is causing it to bind.

I can't say I've ever heard of one binding when it spins so freely. Nor have I heard of an orbital binding. They only do it when connected to each other. Anyone have an idea I'm missing?

You sure all the lines are in the correct ports on the orbital?

Glad I took a break last night. In short, I'm an idiot. Went out this morning to disassemble it all and noticed paint scratched on the motor mount. The allen head keeper screw on the ujoint was hitting it b/c it sticks out half an inch. Removed it and all problems solved.

Now I'm repairing the brake line I squished doing all this.

Now I just have to study up on zuk brakes. These flat out suck, by far the worst braking I've ever had on any rig. I'm not sure if there is a master cylinder upgrade for the sammis or not, like there is for the TJ/YJ. As far as I know George never changed the master so it's still stock.

Otherwise, it's fun making hot laps around the block

Master cylinder




82 Scout 44s, rear is chevy 1/2 ton calipers with bronco rotors






I have to pump a few times to get decent pedal, then only the rears lock up. Open to suggestions on where to start?

George said I have a Subaru master cylinder and it should stop like a corvette, that it did when he owned it.

Been reading this thread, and i should have perfect brakes. I'm gonna try some more bleeding, if no better I'll go buy a new Subaru MC and start over.

Definitely better, but far from stops like a vette. Bled a few reservoirs through it and she's ready for Hidden Falls on the 26th. If nothing breaks I guess the next mod will be finishing the rear floor.

It's good to see you are gonna make it out wheeling Robert. I might have the jeep out at hidden falls or k2 on the 26th as well. All it currently lacks is a front drive shaft. That might sound easy but I think it is going to need to be a two piece. Either way it won't be cheap. I got the springs on it today and finished the gauges up except the tach. I will let you know if we are going to head to hidden falls.

Sorry Ronald! I was thinking about my dad and I guess his name is what I typed. I will let you know if I am going.
