Lucky you did not run dry on engine oil :crying: Ceep up the good work :-D Very lucky. I had her back up on the road to and from work (100 miles) and nothing seemed to be wrong. I'm ordering up the hose and fitting for the sender and found a mount off another parts car on hand. There should be no s...

Freaking hell. I had another close call today. The oil pressure sender that I took off last night busted off the last 5 miles of my commute home. It was the 90 degree aluminum fitting. I notice just before my exit that the oil pressure gauge dropped considerably. It worked all day long perfectly for...

I also got my oil pressure sender working for my digital oil gauge. It has been on the fritz since day one. I ended up drilling the hole in the end from about 1/32" to 1/16". I also replaced the end cable which broke off when I unscrewed the lock down nut. I read reviews online that indicated they g...

I made a mistake running the Emergency brakes up instead of down. Meaning the emergency bracket can be flipped to point down or up. I didn't see the clearance issue when I was test fitting, and down I would lose the rear brake bracket. Turns out that I cannot use the bracket anyways since I have to ...

I have successfully got the main Wilwood rear brakes on with one MC-4 emergency brake caliper on the right rear. I called SummitRacing to see if I could at least get the right parts for the other side so I don't have shave .050" off the fitting that goes into the caliper bracket and make sure the ot...

Finally rear Wilwood system is going in. I'm 1/2 way done, and need the car for work tomorrow. Freaking Lokar boxed the wrong parts for the brake cable. Everything looked right, but the actual fittings were all wrong. Even the pins were wrong. It cost me five extra hours on the install. Pretty sure ...

Prognosis not great! I did a compression check. Dry 145, 145, 81, 145. Number 3 is looking like the rings are shot. I'll do a leak down test and go from there. Not the end of the world since there was nothing cataclysmic and I was already planning a engine rebuild for it. Nothing fancy with this one...

I'm on Christmas vacation. I put a day into the shed/ mini shop (10 x 12 A frame). The metal roof is on and I started putting up the OSB. I got one side done after spending a few hours reframing the windows higher. It will be nice to have a dry spot to work right by the house. All though it is not a...
