Using this every day again now so is due a few maintenance items.
Getting a little green drip out of the rad cap, so new one of them. Just a 13psi one, probably I should run a high pressure one like a commodore? I don't know but it has no problems* creeping cool even on hot days in traffic. (*More on that later)
The only fluid I haven't changed is the trans fluid. It looked ok on the stick and I was hoping to be able to make a few internal improvements with a shift kit and Corvette solenoid, and weld in a drain bung and relocate the trans cooler Infront of the radiator
Well that didn't happen as I felt it was getting over due
Millimetre clearance to get the pan off. But it came off ok and I didnt spill oil everywhere.
Oil was darker thank it looked and the magnet was covered in sludge, so probably time.
New filter went in, then came getting the pan back on
No good. Exhaust is as close as it can be without touching the pans front prongs and the corners foul on the trans crossmember - clearly a well thought out design. I wonder the filter has ever been changed?
Anyway. Angle grinder that to a better shape
And it fitted right on.
If I ever need a new crossover pipe Il move it a little out from the trans
And the coolant issue? The top rad hose has a drip from a hole worn into it by the hose clamp. Just noticed it today and It's getting bad so a new one tomorrow I hope. Looks like a VS bottom tube
It never ends
