Gonna shine up my turd

Ever since my garbage-truck adventure the other day my QT chain has been jumping, and the differential is shot anyway so it's time for a rebuild. Going to do the Mile Marker overdrive kit along with a chain, seal kit and probably a vacuum diaphram.

Anyway, what are some other things to do while I'm in there to increase reliability or strength?

On a side note, I think this makes for the 5th or 6th QT teardown/install in the last 6 months.

lol..I'm starting to think you should stick to 208s man Besides the OD kit, there's no other mods that's aware of to change anything. Using the MM kit ditches using the washers which can wear out IIRC.
