Also discovered that the pilot bearing had eaten itself.



The starter was a bit hungry as well, as it ate some flywheel teeth.



The 540 on the stand, ready for a re-gasketing to stop some leaks.

The Currie 9+ rear axle assembly was cleaned and prepped for paint. After a good bath with wax & grease remover, the crew taped off the threads and applied several coats of Axalta epoxy primer.







The axles were treated to the same process.

Next, the housing and axles were treated to a bath in Imron industrial urethane. That’s more like it!
