the lines out of the bottom of the mc were a pain, I almost wanted to get 2 90* fittings to make routing more like stock.

Looks fantastic!

How did your pedal length come out? mine seems a bit shallow, and the clutch rod is going to need to be shortened.

Haven't hooked up the pedal or lines yet. Still need to work on a few other things before I do that.

I didn't like the locking slider. Just have one lifter now and it handles the load fine. May get another... Still playing around with it.

Hmm, I guess I like that locking slider, works great for loading the wagon full of fence and deck building supplies

yeah, just dont try it on the free way with the hatch down, and tailgate open... Thats my favorite part about that slider lock, hatch window down and locked, tailgate open and you can still see the license plate.

Well the T5 transmission came in yesterday. 1352-199.




Had a water fitting made up for the head by a co-worker. Turned out great. Old on the left and new on the right.


Thanks,

I plan to go with a custom 2 piece. I have heard of vibration issues with a 1 piece. Plus, I plan to bag the car.

Thanks,

Were you able to find the neck gasket? If so where?

Not much to report. Getting parts ordered and ready for this weekend.

Finishing wrapping the header.


Got everything to run a remote oil filter and cooler.




Got the new clutch in.


Thanks,

On most cars, modern at least, the starter motor grounds through the bellhousing. If the oldies are the same, you may need to clean off the mating surface between the bellhousing, starter and the block?

Hello Hub (?)
If I look right, the bellhousing is a cable type one, a pull type one, the clutch bearing release arm (sorry not my native language) is a hydraulik one, a push type one. Please check again, best regards Kay

And Jordan, I'm the same opinin, the ground cable needs uncovered metall :-)

The clutch slave cylinder fits in the same hole in the bell housing as the cable.
