Herald Restoration Weeks 10-11
Progress continues with diff disassembly, wheel subassembly of brake cylinders, shoes and drums. Progress slowed with finding damaged diff case, receiving the wrong parts (several times) and finally sourcing an orignal part here in the US. More time and more money. Also, engine dissassembly started in earnest. Hopefully, there will be no nasty surprises.
