And Redback is back in action as of this afternoon!

New front drive shafts and bearings, plus painted hubs. If you ever pain hubs just make sure the paint doesn’t build up where bolts etc go. Not fun sorting that out, especially in threaded sections.

So I’ve finally lost my steering wheel wobble under all conditions, plus the clacking noises from the front left and the steering wheel shudder under brakes that was the initial issue ages ago.

It’s bliss! And I forgot how much I enjoy driving this little beast!

Now that everything is smooth up front, I reckon I’ve got a niggle up the back now. I’ll look into that in time as I’ve got a few other things to do first - get Basil back on the road. Engine HG, cambelt kit and reseal jobs all done, gearbox replaced. Now it’s a centre diff issue so boxes are apart!

And we have a new member of the family join us yesterday. More on that later ;)

Cheers
