Thanks for the encouragement! Bet you'll never guess what happens in this update... :D

New overflow hose has been cut and now I just need the new radiator hose to arrive from Sweden at some point. Harness is coming out without a fight, which is a nice surprise. The oil pressure sending unit's wires pretty much disintegrated without much force.

Busied myself refinishing the oil cooler bracket. I took off 99% of the rust but there's still a small amount of pitting remaining. Hopefully I've slopped on enough coats of Rustoleum semi-gloss high-heat to keep it from rusting for a little longer. Not my favorite paint with how it chips, but it looks the part.











Cleaned up the fuel filter bracket as well. I think I might know a McMaster-Carr P/N that replaces one of the gaskets.
