Thanks guys. I am so close... There is a car show down in town next weekend. I am kind of considering it. And yes steely eye, I am eyeballing my 69 X model every time I walk past it. I really want to drive it again.

The replacement master cylinder showed up. I will get it clear coated today with some satin clear so it stays looking like fresh cast.
And yesterday my wife and I did some wrestling, with sadies front seat cover. It was a bear. But rather than go on and on about what a lousy company SMS auto fabrics (from Canby Oregon) is and what they did wrong, I will focus on keeping it positive. The seat cover went on in full sun, with some much needed heat and increased flexibility. There are some wrinkles in the back panel and remember Royal fabrics in Spokane save the day by adding 4 inches in width so it would fit over the back. All in all it will do. This is the original pinstripe pattern from 1970.



The seat belt slots are about two inches to high. I will need to sew them shut and look for some black plastic slotted grommets. Then cut and glue them in in the correct location. I know they are made, I just need to find them.






The rear seat is also 98% done. I will put them in shortly.

Any way to mount the slotted grommet?

Maybe these are too thick. They're made for carpet.

That is just about perfect for what I am looking for! Painted black on the aluminum ones though. It would not take much to remove the hog rings under the back and get in behind with some type of backing for support. Wow, super!
Thanks for the links Bkilby!

I have posted my two J trucks on craigs. Priced to sell. I will put the link in a post under craigs list in the right forum place.

Man I hate to see you sell all that good stuff. I know you would have done something great to them.

The 53 sold. It was a cool totally complete stock wagon. It has a good new home and my plate just got a little clearer.

Thanks to bkilby I was inspired to look for seat belt guides till I found some that would look possibly original. Bingo.... Porsche seat parts..... Bills wagoneer just became even more valuable...

https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_In...555-615-01-OEM

I will make a backing ring out of 1/8 aluminum and use black screws.

I have a small problem and need to get a request for a part posted. I will also put a post in the wanted section.

I have no idea how I ended up with two drivers side back seat latch parts. I pulled them out of a ziploc bag that I put them in years ago when I took Sadie apart. I don't have any of these and the beater 70 outside does not have them.

I need the passenger side part.

This is the correct drivers side. Note how the bracket wraps around the seat frame to the back of the seat.




The wrong part. This is the passenger side. The bracket digs into the side of the seat back. It should wrap around the back like the drivers side above.



Another view of the wrong part.



Anybody have the passenger side bracket? I could really use one.

You sure there're supposed to be two different parts?

Maybe the same part mounts upside down on one side so the screw hole is higher on one side than the other or maybe the latch itself is at a different height?

That occured to me late last night. I will go check that today. I am pretty sure it is the wrong bracket.

Can someone take a look under their wagoneer bench seat and tell me how the springs hook up on each side? The parts book shows them but not where they hook to. Nothing seems to fit right.

Sorry KaiserJeeps, those look way different from what I remember of my '79 and my seats are at the upholsterer so I can't check.

I appreciate you replying on it. Very much... I think everyone thinks someone else will get to it. So A lot of stuff I have posted asking for help goes unanswered. So it is great to see you would if you could. So again thanks... Wanting to move ahead, I ended up making some "L" shaped sheetmetal flags that are held on by the upper seat mount stud. The metal has an ear that points forward at the spring with two holes for the spring. Adjustable I guess. It works great. I still could not figure out how they went on even with a parts book.

I sure could still use a rear seat bracket (latch). Passenger side. I would buy the whole set if I needed to. If anyone knows any junk yards, shops, people, that might have it.... Puhlease post up.

I was thinking about calling Montana Overland next door in MT here.

The transmission leak was an under sized O-ring on the dip stick tube. I replaced it with a fatter O-ring and NO LEAK>

I replaced the master cylinder and have better brakes. I pressure bled nearly two pints through all 4. Still seems like a low pedal, but they are drivable now. More>

Thank you Chubbinus, I will call shortly.



And I am getting ready to glue on the door and tailgate weather stripping. This showed up in my email this morning. Perfect timing...

After being on hold for ever their response to my request for the seat back latches was " we don't have time or the staff to go look"

I said I am in Idaho and neither do I. Thanks and have a nice day...

That stinks, seems like a reply I could expect from yards down here, but I would have thought they'd be a bit more friendly up that way. I think www.row52.com has a way for you to send an electronic request for the part via the website, but I think you have to register for an account on row52 first. Would Sadie's owner be wiling to duck in and take a look?

Ha... I had already called Bill and asked him to stop in Friday on his day off.
Then called George at Montana Overland and he found one. 55 bucks and it is on the way. They have just about everything there. I also heard some interesting stuff on Henry Kaiser. How he cheapened the jeeps and did not do them any favors. Interesting chat...

Problem $olved....

A good day here today. Got the seats in with a neighbors help. Did some final rubber casting for the tailgate guide pins. And a few other unmentionables.
I swear it took me an hour and a half to land the transfer case boots and trim ring. That I am glad to be done with.

Casting the guide pins with flexane 94. The 94 is the hardest while there are softer compounds available. I think this is conveyer belt repair compound?

My mold needed work still. But they are turning out OK. I cast the rubber right on to the metal bracket. I pretty much ruined the other half of the mold. So this is perfect to do it this way. I carefully painted release agent around the outside of the mold. The rubber comes right off leaving me a clean job of it.



The flexane and part numbers. The ratio is sensitive as I had to redo one side three times. It came out gummy.



The release agent. It works very well.



The finished casting compared to a good but dirty original.



While I have no air bubbles cast into the work, you can make a vacuum chamber that will remove all air bubbles in a more complex part. I intend to make a small vacuum chamber this winter as I brought home a vacuum pump from my dads when I cleaned his place after he passed. So that should be interesting later.

The Porsche seat belt guides worked like a charm. I carefully measured, marked and cut the openings. Then had to sew up the old slots that were in the wrong place from SMS auto fabrics (Canby Oregon) my absolute favorite company.



The seats in and the belt areas. It was the best I could do.... The thread is black. It is just a reflection in the flash.



Seats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And I was able to make the black plastic surround work with the carpet.





Now I can mount the mirrors. Door seals this next week and then the last of the unsolved issues. The tailgate window....

Glad to finally be at this point..
