Ah, and I've heard that the 3 and 5 bar uses the same sending unit?

Re: chickens... Only poultry dig 2/7/9 series cars for the most part.

Re: oil pressure gauge senders. The gauges are the same except for their faces. The senders are different, resistance-wise. Correct sender for 5 bar gauge is the VDO 360-009. Same as the Volvo sender, but in a VDO package, so costs $40-$60 new. The poster who is getting below 1 bar oil pressure at idle may be running a 3 bar gauge with a 5 bar sender.

Picked up the "correct" length bolts for the turbo drain tube. In stainless.

NAPA called to say that the gasket has arrived. But during my two subsequent visits have been unable to actually find said gasket. Sigh.

Sourcing a "peg" style clutch fork.

Picked up some rubber bushings to quell the constant squeak of the poly in the torque arms.

Dog is thrilled by the rapid progress...

I'm getting an Escort RS Cosworth.

I'm a huge fan of the Yoshi spherical arms, I'd rock those. My wagon makes a ton of noise though, handles well!

I’m shooting for 1.0g on the skid pad. Then Mocambique and I are going to run the Ring.

Are you going to keep the Virgos or do something different?

Probably keep them. The OE size rubber seems to have helped reduce the steering wander.

Might want something more lo pro for handling though. Mine wanders a bit, that's for sure. I think I have 215/50's on there.

Yeah, I used to have a wider set. I liked the look and the grip, but it was a”two hand on the wheel” proposition. Swapping worn out suspension bushings was a big help too.

Love your Fuch’s.

You should run some Porsche wheels, I think some phone dials or D90's would look killer! AMG monoblock wheels would look great on your car too

Tech 101...

If I put a sheet of paper over the oil fill on the valve cover and vacuum draws it down, that indicates that my crank ventilation is working?

It tells you that it's working a certain amount. Fully working, and partially working kinda look the same.

That's healthy enough. Mine fills a glove in a matter of seconds.

OK. Wait a sec, I'm confused again.

We want to draw blow-by out of the crank case with vacuum? If I snap a glove on the oil fill and it inflates, we have pressure? And that's bad?

You are correct.
Harald's car just has some excessive blowby for some reason.

I have never owned a redblock that did not have silly blowby.

OK. Just trying to resolve these GD oil leaks.

My '65 Galaxy had a draft tube...

EPA / LOL.

If he got the oil drain squared away he should be set, I think?

Sounds like he just wants to make sure, I can understand that! Did you reseal the engine before putting it in?

No, I’m not that bright. What I thought was the rear main might be the oil pan.
