My Series IIIs used to love seeping oil everywhere, from the engine to the gear and transfer boxes to the front hubs. It did keep rust at bay though!
The old P38 has a nice coating of grease that has been flung from the propshaft

Keeps it rust free

As for Toyota having 2 different greases for the prop, it is kind of odd but I guess they have their reasons!

Gave the old power barn a clean up and re-shine, upon opening it which with a P38 is a daily occurrence I'm left looking at a dull and slightly dirty bay.

A wipe down with APC, no pressure washers lol and then some AG Rubber care

During shot



And the afters




Not too bad, it ain't gonna win any awards but it is quite nice to look at, I do think I might lose the red conduit

might even climb underneath with a rag and wipe all the oil off the bottom to really finish the job off

Time for an update!!



Over the past few weeks she adapted a nice brake pedal pulsation and the entire car would judder when slowing down from high speed, so naturally I assumed the brakes were at fault and ordered a nice set of EBC performance brake discs and pads...

Rimmer Bros got them delivered next day..

When I got home from work there was a nice parcel waiting for me!



The new discs are vented and drilled etc etc theyre even anodized IIRC so they should last a good long while before going rusty!



Fitting of the discs couldn't be easier on the P38, jacking her up is the first hurdle, first off the wheel nuts were loosened off, I've made the mistake too many times of jacking them up and forgetting to crack the nuts loose!!



27mm for the wheel nuts and wheel comes off exposing the job at hand I like to slide the wheel under the chassis to prevent any issues if it dropped for any reason



Removal of the caliper and the carrier couldn't be easier, 12mm bolt for the caliper and a 19mm BI-Hex for the carrier, both came out easily enough!



Caliper off and put to the side..



The old pads removed and they were worn quite badly for the mileage they had on them, around 6k, i'd say they had 40% life remanining.



Removal of the old disc is easy as pie, just 1 pozi securing screw if you've never had this screw off its best to use an impact gun or driver, otherwise you risk stripping it..



The hub centre was greased when I last had the discs off, so everything came apart very easily, thankfully..

Hub cleaned and new Disc fitted..




The new pads have an anti squealing formula, and apparently they improve the brakes no end...




At this point typically it started to **** down with rain, so I had to rush and throw the wheel on, forget doing the other side today!! FFS..

Anyway the wheel is thrown back on




On to the old units!!

The old disks themselves are actually almost concave, hard to pick up on the camera, however you can see the scouring and delamination starting!




The disk itself is even twisted slightly, hard to see in this pic but there is a warp



Anyone see the slight bend to the left?

Anyway!

Tomorrow I'll finish off the other side and then take her for a good drive!

Oh and I even went the extra and gave my air springs a coating of rubber care,




Top/Bottom balljoints next..



Not looking forward to that to be fair!!

New discs look like they’re proper jobs. Heard good things about the EBC stuff

It looks to me the pads have uneven wear, one worn more than the other? I hope you checked the caliper pins if they were binding when you swapped out the rotors

Good job Henry 👍 . I too always put the wheel under the sill/car as years ago I was changing a wheel on a car and the ****ty scissor jack which was from a Datsun started to fold in half .
