This makes me happy
Since everything is on back-order, I ended up just getting the block cleaned up and painted. I did get my clutch kit in yesterday, so I will be pulling the blown motor out and getting the tranny bolted in.
If anybody is on Instagram, look into my sig if you want to follow. I will have more content there with videos and photos.
Looks great buddy!
get some tech flex on those shifter cables!
also...if you want, find a spare fuel rail and I'll weld soem -6AN fittings on the end and we can make you some nice -AN lines to clean that up a touch
thanks for the positive feedback.
I have been pulling my hair one small thing at a time. I finally got the car sorted out and running. one last thing I have been battling is my custom made hydraulic clutch set up was leaking. Getting that sorted out was a mess. now, I finally got all the items fixed and bleed, but my clutch will not engage. It does not seem to have adequate pressure and I am trying to figure out why it doesn't now, when it did before.
Couple things that did happen since the resurrection of the car.
1. I bought a new clutch kit. Old one was almost disintegrated and the clutch engaged at the very end of the pedal stroke. This was the case with both hydraulic and mechanical one i ran.
I did buy a new clutch, so I figured if anything, old one being just about near death, new one will be beefier and engage sooner.
2. While my motor blown, my slave cylinder has been disconnected from the transmission for the past 4 years and I never looked at it until i picked up the project.
I initially noticed that the rod and the rubber booth were fully extended as booth was sticking out of the slave cylinder. The booth was fluffy, like all the liquid was inside it.
My thoughts are, maybe there might be something wrong with it but it doesn't seem to be leaking. I will try to obtain another one and see if that helps.
At this point, I got a running car that I cant drive.
Got a new slave cylinder and installed it and still same results. Fully Bled system. The pedal is still super soft. I am starting to think that either the push rod on the master isn't long enough, but my pedal travels all the way to the fire wall or that the push rod on the slave cylinder could be extended. There just isn't much resistance. Almost as if the rod does not put far enough on the fork to engage clutch.
Photos are fixed going back to the beginning?!?
Did you pay the ransom?
