Mechanical Work

There were still a few things on my list of mechanical work I wanted to get done before we take off. Some of it was outside of my knowledge so I worked together with the guys at CVI to bring DinoEvo up to my standards and ended up doing the following updates:

  • New rear brake shoes
  • Replaced all remaining old coolant lines
  • Rebuilt alternator including new housing
  • New brake master cylinder
  • New fuel filter
  • Replaced steering boots and tie rod ends
  • New upper and lower ball joints
  • Replaced all CV boots
  • New sway bar stabilizer bushings
  • New clutch slave cylinder
  • New clutch kit

That should be it with preventive maintenance. I’m really happy how the van performs. Most of the components that wear out over time should be good now for a long time.
