Windows done, all of aluminium brackets have been loose or off some way, so I had to dig out all of old glue and blue them in properly. Since I wasn't able to get the glu I saw on youtube - perfect video from WCCC, i used same as on the windshield. Seem to work perfect, time will prove it. only issue I had was how to glue then in the middle of bracket grove and in the right angle - but simple solution: 3D printed spacers with snug fit :)

After a while some parts arrived to my eshop, so I was able to start put the car together. I bought Scott Drake lowering kit for rear end, installed tank and sending unit and modified tail lights with LED modules.

Meanwhile in my garage :)

After disassembly of my differential I found heavy wear on yoke seal surface. Unfortunately it was deep and after machining the original seal had only light pressure, so I hat to get some custom seal. Backlash of differential and tooth position adjusted. Finally brake parts came (except rear brake cables), and I could put everything together.

It was raining this weekend, so I started something new – rebuild of my FMX. I ordered master rebuild kit C9ZZ-7005-MK, output shaft bushing, output and pump seal. After disassembly I inspected bearings, seals and bands. Can someone confirm my finding and answer some questions, please?

-          front band should be replaced

-          Bearing on direct drum ich chipped - should be replaced

-          is the lip on Planet bushing normal or its wear?

-          is it normal that replacement flat seal for forward clutch piston is about 1/3 thinner than original?

-          Is he wear on inside bushings (last two pics) OK?

Thanks for any answer / opinion, I’m trying to find some info on web, but except rebuild kits are even other bushing and parts hard to find

Did you get the Badshoe rebuild video? He goes over all that wear stuff really well. Most of the wear has to pass the finger nail test. If me, if replace all those parts, cuz you're in there anyway.

Short update...

So, thanks Bob, Kens videos are great, and to work on transmission with them really fun! My front band had to be replaced / relined so I decided to buy a flexible band. Unfortunately, use of this type of band requires other strut (as for 1972-73 fmx), so I’m still not able to assembly the trany – waiting parts to come. Maybe it might help someone, so I’m posting a picture how I solved installation of direct drum piston. I used thin plastic flowerpot (cut flash at bottom ad left some rest above for pulling it out) to press the seal ring, inserted inside the drum and by constantly pressing on piston I slowly removed the pot strip.

Till struts arrive I started to rebuild side louvres an rewire the car.

Nice progress. Good job and thinking on the seal lip install. Rebuilding auto trannies isn't too difficult, organization and cleanliness are essential. A guy once said, if someone is smart enough to design a transmission, I should be smart enough to rebuild it.

Nice work!!

Thanks Victor,

sooo, my tranny is ready to install. I got lucky a found one „new“ upper strut for 70 and up FMX on ebay. The lower one was easy, so I made that one by myself. Adjusted according manual specs now waiting for installation.

Hi, its cheap module from china - aliexpress / ebay:

I tested it for a while and it did survive, but how long will it in light is still a question :)

Just finished my light panel for rear fog, reverse and license plate light. Will be mounted in rear bumper notch and is all LED.  After I saw YT video from AtotopiaLA with Mercury Comet crashing because of brake failure, I decided to converse emergency brake to floor mounted that I'm more used to. Nice Lokar kit is way to expensive, so I'm going cheaper way:

Like what you did with the license light panel. Had an idea for something similar but haven't decided how I want to do it.

I'm using this from American Shifter Co. I think I got it on ebay about 5 years ago. Don't recall the cost but think it was around $60. Also bought the accessories kit but don't recall the price.
