Managed to found a front brake set of a 1981 pup.Cleaned everything from rust and rebuild the calipers.Just got to put them on.
Any ideas how can i get the ball joints from the old arm with hurting them?

So i used i ball joint puller and safely removed the joints from the old arm.
The answer finally is that you can use the pup front brakes with the spindles on the first luv.

I have noticed something and i would like your thougths.
Right before the carb i have a fuel filter.If i leave the car parked for a week and the filter leaning backwards to the pump it gets totally empty after about a week.If it leans forward it gets half empty.I have the originall electric fuel pump under the bed.

I removed the bench and painted the floors.Still got to make some patches.Also i am planning to get a pair of buckets from a tiburon.
Next thing that i am thinking is a weber 32/36.Anybody knows if you can work the advance vacuum with that carb?
I red here that the 32/34 weber bolts on the manifold straight with no adaptor and you can use the advance vacuum.Any feedback for that carb?
