    What have you done to your CUCV today/lately - Part 2

    Changed the headlight switch and changed a melting fuse in a aditional wire that had been added by the previous owner. The wire is in to bypass the key. I'll restore it after it passes the anual inspection.

    I replaced the rear brakelines and hose and while doing that I found out the proportion valve is broken. I have been searching for a part nr and could not find it. Is there a replacement part for the original? For now I have connected the line directly to the hose.

    Also started to testfit a turbo setup which I bought from SS. Only thing I saw, it has no wastegate. The turbos I have owned in the past all had an wastegate so I could change the pressure. Should I add an external wastegate to this setup? And how and where should I put it? If someone has...
