Castrol purple cleaner
[QUOTE=ABQMK2;765338]Now I need to run this through my friend parts washer at his machine shop..paint it up nice and black, press out the bushings and install my super pro bushings...install all new rear wheel bearings, seals,crush sleeves...put on my rear BBK with cross drilled rotors and wilwood brake calipers with SS braided lines...then bolt up my diff with 3.42 gears and a true trac, slap it up in the car, bolt my shiney Simmons back on....meh...all these parts are sitting on the bench just been collecting dust waiting for me to do this.
Hi, As a paint prep, I like to use Castrol purple cleaner, It has an acid in it that is good to help etch the bare metal ( which is good practice for paint adhesion). It helps De rust metal if soaked long enough in it. That makes it good for cleaning gas tank internal rust as well.
It is not recommended for aluminum parts. But If you don't leave it on aluminum for long or diluted it will give a Satin dull finish on alloy.
You use water to rinse it off and the sun and air compressor to dry it quickly , or you can use a wood stove or torch to dry the parts and all the nooks and crannies. You need to dry it quickly as possible Plus it is oil free and you can do it at home.. Carl H

Wow..thx Carl for taking the time to write that..i will keep that in mind for all my future projects.
As far as this one fellas....i started to remove and grind the brackets off at 5pm..had it all welded on by 8:30...i had some help..but its not that hard to do..i just made sure to use the lcas as a jig and made sure the camber mod brackets were as low as possible and flush against the subrame squared and even.
Thx George for the instructions...they just confrmed i did most of it right..lol!
I recommend supraholics thread as well Rob ...his pics are excellent and so is his description.

I hope you added some gussets after your last picture? I did not see any...
P.S. That round piece with two bolts is a harmonic dampener.

That balancer, and the reinforcing gusset near the diff mount are 85/86 specific. I wish my 84 had it, as the big power and sticky tires started cracking the whole diff mount off, until I reinforced the shit ouf of it with some welded on steel bar sections.'84 P-type, 5spd, torrid red, black/grey leather
