Mostly just reassembling today. The air filter box was toast - all four screws snapped off leaving rusty stumps. Its recoverable but I didn't feel like it today so just fitted a good spare.



Coolant tank and ps reservoir



I also didn't feel like dealing with the front panel today so I reassembled the suspension instead



New upper arms



I mentioned that sellers of aftermarket / remanufactured alternators list the V6 unit as fitting the V8 when it actually doesn't. This one is a V6 alternator with a V8 rear cover so the part number looks right
Here's what happens:



Note the cooling intake is pointing at the ground when it should be pointing to the side. This won't meet up with the air scoop so reduces cooling effectiveness.
