Finally have new balljoints and bushings in the front control arms. Had a friend machine out the old balljoint hole to accept a new x2 balljoint and put urethane bushings in at the same time. MM sells a sleeve kit that allows the new balljoints to work with the SVO spindle. Replaced the head gasket, oil pump, radiator, distributor and auxiliary shaft. Has been running great for almost a month now. Old gasket was blown, and my distributor gear had gone away. Also deleted the old ac stuff that was heavy and didn’t work anyways. Added an AFR gauge and turned the boost up, running pretty well.
