Fed it some new engine mounts and trimmed the gearbox mount-2-xmember bolts..they were almost touching the member and certainly did while driving resulting in rank vibration and noise.

New box is good! Took a few clutch cable tweaks to find the sweet spot. Didn’t get to test it on the open road but looking forward to it.

Yesterday I made new gaskets for either side of the carb spacers between the body and the manifold, trimmed back to factory the bits I added to the actuators to bring the secondaries on earlier (when I was persisting with the vacuum setup and seeing what it would do), and blocked off that unnecessary vac takeoff. Also evened up the float levels, were close though.

it fired up just off the key stone cold and idled like a champ. It has no choke. This is amazing! Must have had an air leak before.. pretty damn happy, will do some more tuning on Friday cause it’s canty anniversary and working can GTFO.

Did 900km going down to Alexandra and back for Xmas, went great. Sucked getting stuck behind campers and boats through the twisty bits though!

brother gave it a tune because we were a bit retarded according to the cam specs and It’s going great now.

mate brought me a 120Y swaybar as part payment for cutting his rust, this is 4mm bigger and straight swap- so bare metalled and painted it all nice, new bushes etc.

then snapped a bolt putting it back together.

lucky I did cause I found rust in the rail, so out came two patches and in went rust kill, etch and new steel. Bolt came out while drilling so that was awesome.

Took castor rod out to gain space to broken bolt and found those bushes to be pretty shagged too, so I’ll order some more.

Scott luxon donated some parts cause he’s a super GC. Rapt to have new ignition switch which means steering lock and actual key again!

the quarter window rubbers are always quite torn up or hard so these freshies will be a dream!

Haven’t done much because I’ve been helping a mate with his Ute.

however I have had the struts shortened by nick_m, made a new brake hard line and got new front Rubber hoses. Haven’t seen struts because I’m in a foreign country but look forward to sewing it all back together with some new paint and going for a fang. 

No pics so See you at nats

I put in the new master cylinder, swapped the new accelerator pumps out for the old ones, was a big bog when stood on.worked a treat. Swapped drivers glass for a spare I was given less the scratches. Sealed the quarter windows into their surrounds again. 

Random pic of how it is.

Painting in the garage means cleaning outside.
