So this past weekend after I plowed some dirt around I removed the fenders , wheel weights , seat and hood. I will be getting them sand blasted soon ! And then the rims next . I Still have a bunch of cleaning to do I noticed once I took the back wheels off haha . I'm going to put on the new choke cable next . Im still curious about my gear oil question :/ I'd really like to change it the right way.

You can use 90 weight mineral gear oil in the transmission.

GL-1 is the preferred gear lube. 

 

It is available from NAPA stores or TSC, if you have either near you.

Jarrett, your work area is way to close to the chaise lounge. Unless of course theres a table and mini fridge near by which in that case, i think you have things figured out. 😎
