Yeah Jonno I should have clarified that the TX cross member is going in the bin unless someone wants it. Remember the diesel cross member I have with the angle adaptors? That's what is going in with all these other bits. It's actually cleaned up and painted now.
The lower control arms are actually RTS ones as I gave the original TX ones to a mate in Melbourne. One is from the original GEM77A and the other was given to me as part swap for an engine. The springs are original TX as are the upper control arms. When it goes back together the front will be lower than standard and I'll probably get low springs for the rear too. There's a sway bar floating around somewhere that'll go in as well.

I took the compressor to work, pulled the armature, pulley and coil off. Pulled the control valve out to give it a blow out and was faced with this.

Obviously moisture had found its way in but it looked like a toddler had taken a dump on it so a new valve went in.

Gave the armature and pulley a light skim then painted.
Flushed as much crap out of the compressor as possible, sand blasted the case then reassembled and filled with new oil.
