  1. 5spd front cover lip seal

    Thanks for all the responses! Clear as day now. Bryan
  2. 5spd front cover lip seal

    the 2nd photo is how the last one came out. I didn't consider there being a taper that the seal actually mated up with. Any other votes for 2nd photo? B.
  3. 5spd front cover lip seal

    I am refreshing the seals/gaskets on my trans and when I pulled the lip seal out of the front cover it appeared to be in backwards. I've worked with reciprocating pumps for many years and the lip of the seal always points towards the fluid you want to keep in. When I pulled the seal out the lip of the seal was pointing towards the engine. Can someone confirm which direction is correct? Pictures show both sides of seal. Thanks, Bryan
  4. Shifter boot seal 5 speed

    Quick and easy question - I'm putting my trans back together, disassembled to reseal/gasket/oring to get rid of leaks, and wondered if there is supposed to be anything used to secure the boot that on the shifter: http://www.zcarsource.com/uimages/product_photos/clutch/1410169.jpg The factory manual doesn't show anything and there was a zip tie on it when I disassembled it. Wondering if it supposed to be sealing all on its own at the base or if others have used a hose clamp/CV boot clam or other. Thanks Bryan

    Do you have the roof panel that goes right in front of the hatch? Has the cut out for the dome light. If so condition? Bryan

  8. Recommend a racing helmet

    2 ways to look at it: 1. Get the latest SA 2015 or 2010 that you can. That way you're covered for any auto event anywhere for a longer period of time. http://www.racerpartswholesale.com/category/FullFaceHelmets Trade off is SA helmets should not be used for motorcycling - size of the eyeport being the usually sited downside. 2. If you're really confident you'll never venture outside of things that allow M2000+ and want a dual purpose helmet (what I currently have for autox and motorcycling) get an M helmet.

  10. L28ET running lean

    is it giving signs of misfiring? bad spark/no combustion will give lean readings. symptoms happened as soon as you finished cooling system work? Bryan

  13. Should I relocate this O2 bung on a downpipe I bought?

    The risk of water build up is more at cold starts - Standard combustion by products mostly H2O and CO2. When the surfaces are cold the water vapor created in the combustion chamber can condense on them and run to the lowest point. I'm not sure if the risk is from errant readings from a wet sensor or some sort of damage to the sensor over constant wet/dry conditions. Once everything warms up this problem goes away as the water has nothing to condense on that close to the engine.
  14. Should I relocate this O2 bung on a downpipe I bought?

    From what I understand, you don't want water to collect in it. If the bung is on the bottom, closest point to the ground, then water can condense and pool in it. The orientation of the picture makes it looks like it more front than bottom. I would not relocate unless positioning doesn't work with your set up. Bryan
