Well it's all done minus the harness...... +/- a few odds and ends. oil pressure sender had plenty of room with headers in place.


Is that oil sender adapter something you bought or made? If purchased, where did you get it?

I'm adding a fuel pump pre-filter to my system...... Recently found some fuel cell foam chunk that tried to clog up my pump. A 150 micron filter should solve that and maintain Good flow. I also added some camber plates that work with stock diameter springs to add 1.5 neg camber..... First impression is good but my next AutoX will be the real tell. Jim

Pre-season AutoX today..... Hard to tell if the camber plates at -1.5 Made a huge difference but I had a good day. Finished 4th fastest on the field bested by 2 purpose built race cars. I'll post a video clip soon. Trying to get my daughter to help with a YouTube full video I can post as well.

Always enjoy watching your videos. Gives me inspiration to keep moving on my build. Are you running at R200 diff with an LSD? OBX?

I picked up some Kia weather stripping from the yard..... Will post some pics and opinions once it's in. Only ran me $15 for both sides. Also bought some universal rubber for rear hatch. I'm getting a lot of fumes right now since the old rubber got sacrificed when the back end was rebuilt. Pics of that to follow as well. Jim

Running this motor puts the car and chassis under increased stress..... 45 year old parts will only last so long, so I ordered up some new adjustable LCA's and tension rods.  I'll post some pics and feedback when I get them in.  Jim

I was going to install the electric steering kit from silvermine motors but opted for their LCA for now insteadAttached File  image.jpeg   53.57KB   1 downloads

I'm running mild camber plates up top for -1.5 and will gain more with the LCA in addition to more castor. Electric steering is still on the table as budget allows but I'm going to maximize my cars potential with this first. Jim

Still waiting on LCA parts..... Installed the precision universal rubber in the rear hatch. It works really well and seals nicely. I'll get some pics of that soon. Another AutoX race tomorrow but weather calls for rain. Weather permitting I'll post some video and get a shot or two of the hatch seal installed. One of these days I'll have my daughter set me up with a YouTube account to post full length video instead of 10 second clips.

Yea I love that line.... When I clipped the cone it grabbed the timing light box and we had to reset. "Dammit Jim".
Now that I finally have video clips figured out I'll try to post some decent stuff from now on.

Took some time to clean up the underside of the hood. Painted the border satin black and once that's cured I will go back and Re-shoot the white. Look much cleaner for now anyway.
