ah ok.

Sounds like the clutch/slave is all set up and playing nicely after the trans swap?

Thanks. It's could be better. Not every connector has a boot, which kinda bugs me and isn't what professionals do. But oh well, it works for an amateur like me.

Seems to be working ok. Pedal is still pretty stiff, but maybe I just don't remember how hard it was since the last time I drove it was before thanksgiving.

Also, I forgot how grabby that clutch is. It's very different from my sister's manual Ford Focus I was driving for a bit.

How many miles on it? Mine definitely did settle in a bit after 500 or so miles but I think you're past that point by now.

Definitely won't be like a focus though. I get in my SAAB right out of the 242 sometimes and try to put the pedal through the floor, then spend the first few shifts remembering how normal cars feel.

I don't think I'm past 500 miles yet. But there's no way to tell, my Volvo odometer doesn't work. But I did just get the odometer in Megasquirt working. So I'll have an accurate mileage for my car starting in 2018.

Lol. The engagement is what's most different for me. The focus didn't engage the clutch until the pedal was almost returned to the rest position. My 242 engages pretty much right as you start to let the pedal back up. And it lets my neck know it's engaged.

I adjusted my torque rods to match my pinion angle to my new tailshaft angle, and got rid of some annoying vibration. However, my driveshaft now hits the body on bumps and when any real weight transfer happens. I'm thinking about converting to a 2 piece driveshaft. Has anyone had problems with two slip yokes?

Finally replaced the stock GM ignition coil wiring harness I was using with something I made. No functional reason to make one, but I wanted it to look better.
