well here is some stuff i have been working on.
got the clutch pedal mounted.
question: where exactly does the spring for the pedal mount onto? been playing around with it for a bit and i dont exactly know where it goes.
also started to get some parts off the old engine to be sold.
and my obligatory crazy face shot.

Selling my ZX-6R to buy a car. http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...Original-Owner
so yesterday i decided to start to rip apart the old engine for parts.
then i wanted to take the cam out.
what a mess. parts were everywhere.
next we decided to clean the tranny so it would be easier to work with. it was covered with crud.
nice and clean
then i also decided to try and get that ac and radiator out. i couldn't. pops went at it for 30 minutes using every trick in the trade.
IT WAS ON THERE GOOD.
then i got thinking about practicallity (for now ) and decided to lift the car just for the build so could actually work with it.
during.(the crazy things we do for love...)
obligatory crazy face shot.
not really. its on the other side of the state. yeah the thought of a 1.8t makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
anyway here are some updated pics. (im just using the crane to support the engine. its not ready to be pulled)

got my replacement clutch kit and the holy grail of car manuals today [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] unfortunately i misplaced my camera so pics will have to wait. oh yeah i have next week off from school so i am hoping to button put some serious hours in.
ok so i havent posted any progress in a week or so. so here it goes.
first we started to get the automatic tranny off my 2.slow:
finally got that thing pried off. what a pig
after that we got the 5spd off the old block.
took awhile but we got it off:
(i see daylight )
my friend dave, pops, and i just standing around when we should have been at work... or i should have been.
now that we had everything apart. i decided to move forward.
started mounting my sachs clutch kit.
and heres a shot of me slacking.
pushed forward again and started to get the 5spd mounted.
got it all torqued and prepped for install.
caught some zzz's after that. the next day i decided that i would actually put it into the red bat. so i did.
got the drive shafts on and started to connect hoses and electrical harnesses.
replaced a bad tranny mount after the engine was in...
between school and soccer i havent had much time so i put in a little here and there. hope to get it done by next weekend. knock on wood.
