Found out when trying to install the fuel lines that my firewall was missing one hole for the the return line, seems the guys doing the rust repair on the lower firewall took some liberties that I hadnt noticed till now. šŸ™

Found that my front bearing grease cups/dust caps were the wrong size to fit the hubs. Bugger!
