      Ok the axle is in, but not before:
      1) putting in the K-bar
      2) r/r the shifter bushings
      3) looked at the exhaust clips and told myself that is something for another day
      4) over torques one of the CV joint bolts and then busted it... the torque wrench rogue on me
      5) took all the cv bolts out and starded over
      6) almost burst a vain in fear that I busted that bolt flush with the axle cup.....
      7) prayed for rapture
      8) was able to walk the busted bolt by hand
      9) re-torqued everything, including the axle nut Boooya!
      10) placed car on ground, go to start it......

      11) dead battery.......checked bad at auto store......
      Wanted:Cirrus gray PS fender for S2 (one can dream) 1) Check your stash 2)Let me know
      wanted: Vanagon carat or wolfburg springs (89-91)

      Fixed the exhaust, started it, let it run for about 10- 15 min, then it died, wouldn't stay running, let it cool over night, now it starts but I don't think I hear the in tank pump running.

      Repaired the "EX" engine from our WhiteCat today...

      Timing belt was torn to shreds...

      Put a new tensioner pulley and a new timing belt in....and the beast was resurrected

      New coil, plug wires, cap and rotor installed on the 81. neglected to change out the plugs the PO had put in it. OEM style Bosch wires wouldnt connect to them! Tried to start it on the old wires and found the fuel pump relay is caput

      trying to figure out what is wrong with my car for the past 3 weeks now. I was told the spark plugs were garbage but thats not the problem and the wires are brand new so is the cap and rotor. Looks like its time to change the coil
