The starter gear from the flywheel came off while we were taking off the clutch, so after getting the entertainment of watching my brother trying to push it back on, I let him know that you need to heat the starter gear up then it will drop on the flywheel no problem. So we just dropped it in the barbeque for an hour or so. Then it just dropped on!
Well we put a clutch in and put the engine back in,
we then struggled for weeks trying to get the correct pulley/alternator/belt set up
then winter rolled in and we've just fiddled every now and again with it
We'll get some pictures up soon.
if you make a wiring harness from scratch that doesn't fallow the stock set up (plugging into relays vs the fuse panel) draw a wiring diagram
Even if you use the correct color wires, you're going to forget what you did
I don't care how clever you think you are
It's easier drawing it as you're making it vs. going back and trying to trace wires to see what's going where.
Especially when it's a mkII engine in a mkI with mkIII & mkIV wire and Saab relays(although relays are relays) I think that the contact with swedenism has an effect on them
The car runs fine now. Needs a little bit of work! Projects are never finished! Passed emissions with our fake cat! I just had to mix a little E85 to lean it out a little, but just for the testing period.
I took it to a tire shop to get new tires put on the front. Some kid went crazy with the torque wrench and stripped my hub. He also put the wrong wheel weights on, so on my way back to the shop they flew off!
Anyway once I get it back its new tie rods and boots as well as a wheel bearing!
I replaced the ghetto-fab fog with a HELIA (Hella knock-off)
Compressed the Rear Bumper
Eventually some 13x8's
pictures will be uploaded soon
