      Got a new tie rod for the G60 so I can finaly try and do a aligment myself (nobody local is willing to set me up with 1 let alone 1.5° of camber up front). Good luck to me with that

      Then I finaly took apart the remainder of the two automatic tranny's. It doesn't look good:

      the other tranny's idler pulley:

      Did this yesterday afternoon. I sprung a leak( in the 2 or 3 inch hose that connects waterpump to the metal pipe that runs across the front of motor) , overheated and I can only pray that I did not do any damage.

      Replaced several hoses in the same area. Found where apparently the shop I carried it to last year in march did not tighten bolts down so I just spent $60 to replace missing on AC compressor,alternator and powersteering. Then I find a hose that I figure is a vent breather of some sort that goes from the block ??? to the airbox and is connected to the cold start valve.

      Hopefully one of the vortexers will be able to id it for me so I can order a replacement it.

      I dreamt several times today of driving it around. Then I remembered that I still have to rewire and install the battery before any of that can happen.

      installed rear and front polyurethane control arm bushings, took a crack at ignition timing again.. still can't get to the bloody clutch markings, thus making it a more "trial and error" type of deal.. self alignment tomorrow? I hope..

      Tires soon.. there's one with wide bands of no rubber left..
      I'm basically riding on drag slicks.

      After a week of driving to work she got 5 whole gallons of premium.

      Patted her on the fender saying the Fiat's not #1. It just gets racing fuel...

      Right now? she's up on stands ready for some love tomorrow.

      Got the major house projects done.

      And while I'm thinking about it.

      Happy wife makes for happy life.

      My 1980 Scirocco failed MD inspection mainly due to this:

      Its the pipe from the EGR valve to the Exhaust mani. According to the local parts dealer, the pipe is NLA (067-131-635-A).

      So I'm on the hunt for a replacement pipe, or a reasonable stand-in.

      UPDATE: With a lot of help I was able to locate one.

      Rarely as in never.

      Your odometer will probably stop working before you drive 7500 miles anyway.

      According to the odometer, my 87 has been driven 1 mile since I've owned it.

      Deal with it.
