      I tested most of the sensors in the engine bay. The engine has a small hiccup at higher RPMs.
      I think I might have a bad O2 sensor because the signal does not flucuate much at all. With the test harness I don't get much of a mA signal. Bt, it runs well at the same time, so I think there is something wrong, somewhere.

      (Early) Sure, I drug him from the ditch.
      (sheriff) I wish you told me that before you sold him to me.

      Yes. Something seems not right with the numbers.

      I'm not quite sure why it melted like that. Any ideas or reasons that could happen?
      I was driving like I always do (a little hard), and then it felt like it ran out of gas and stalled. After putting gas in it and it still not starting I decided to open the Dist Cap and low and behold I found that!
      How old is the little one? Cute picture!

      I got beat down by a *CAR* because at the to; of second, the dumps fuel, or cuts out, or something. At least the Chev driver was nice about my humiliating defeat. The good thing? The gentleman who is tuning my car was there when it happened. Like that will do me any good...
      Chris: this may be (probably is) a noob question, but is your turbo going to be clocked like that when it's all said and done? I wouldn't have thought so, but I have been wrong before.

      No, it will be clocked in whatever position works best for the intercooler. I just didin't do it for the photos.

      Decided to try and fix the stuck rear seat belt. Anyone care for an 'exploded view'?

      Needless to say, prying the end cover off was not one of my brightest ideas. Well, I might be stymied there, but I did manage to get something done.



      Center belt I pulled from an Audi 5000 at Pull-a-Part yesterday. This one actually has a retractable belt, an improvement over the Audi 4000 center belt I used on Sly. So I'm back up to four functional belts. Since I have three kids, that's a necessity. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      No hang-out involved. Mark and I met to change the distributor. Mark thanked Lido because he had supplied the distributor several months ago.
      I did get some interesting work done on the Audi Fox Saturday, but all I did to the VW Fox was back it out of the shop to clear space for Mark's, then pull it back in. Still need to get pics of it lowered with the wheels.
      Like my Facebook page, Quantum Mechanics, for Audi Fox Quattro progress pics and more.

      I'm working to improve the shifter. I had a heim joint welded onto the shift rod ( closest to the bushing end). I drilled out the nub end of one of the shifter "halves" so the heim joint can be bolted into place. Later I filed some of the metal down so the two won't bind.
      I'm anxious to see if there is any improvment.
