  • HAHA, thats perfect timing from my last post

    Got the timing belt all tensioned and the oil pan finished up last night. gonna finish up with the flywheel cover plate and the down pipe. after that all I need is a new wg gasket, do a valve adjustment(going to tighten up the clearance to see If i can get that valve train to quite up a little bit), get the vc back on and prime the oil pump before I actually start it up.

                • WHOAAAA!! who said any thing about slacking in this build... Ive just been slacking on updates

                  its late, and work at 6 in the morning is not far away so im gonna give you the cliffnotes of the last 2 months.
                  fixed oil pump/seal didnt seat right
                  drove to emission/ wouldnt do. small oil leak and I quote"A Fraction of an inch too low" WTF really!!!
                  replace main seal/ striped TB tension...


                  Motor is currently on the floor of my garage awaiting 2 time serts( finding time when Im not physicly exhausted has been the only reason thats not done yet..)

                  Unified--- nahhh, no toda. just a good old OEM.

                              LOL so close....


                              Got new updates, most good, some bad...

                              Got both time serts in..
                              started with the half shaft. the striped out threads


                              My savior!


                              Marking the depth measurement to ensure I dont go to deep.


                              Old thread drilled out


                              Taping block for insert.


                              threaded hole


                              insert in place and finished up




                              On to the timing belt. to busy concentrating on not messing it up but managed to snap a couple while I was using the insert tool and end result.





                              Time belt went on without incident, and motor is back in the car








                              got the entire back side collant, electronics, cables and hoses hooked up. went to grab the radiator for installation and I noticed a little blue residue at the base and decided to have it pressure tested. Wish I hadnt done that... turns out there are more then a couple small holes and It appears as if the core is rotted/ing out...

                              I decided being this bad boy has lasted me well over 10 year between 2 cars, countless times of being in and out of the car, daily driving and all out track days.. It was time for a new one. IMO, it wasnt worth the money too repair with such a uncertain future. new radiator should e here Tuesday along with another 6an bung. hope to have it welded, back to me and installed along with every thing else and running in 2 Fridays. Shortly there after gonna hit the dyno for a finshed tune..

                              updates to follow soon

                                Those time-serts can be tricky, but it looks like you got it handled. Top notch work sir!

                                Out of curiousty, what radiator did you end up going with?
