We continue our epic story where we left off, with our Hero @yoeddynz getting bored with doing panel work.

A man with more than one super-power - he also knew about how to make automobiles run - sort of.

A little prep work happened before any attempt to make 2500cc of metal turn.

A new(ish) battery was supplied care of local BL enthusiast @Slacker_Sam. and many consumables were sent so that testing could commence.


A care package of Rock-Auto's finest consumables and some gentleman's literature.

First up: Liquid retention.



Alex pulled out the Radiator as it didn't like holding ice-cube juice.  \

@Slacker_Sam. to the rescue. Another radiator was sourced and thrown in the hole.

Ignition: New plugs, leads and spinning points bits was replaced. The quality of the current parts was amazing.


Prince of darkness strikes again

Now that all the obvious stuff was changed, including a ballast resistor, dodgy accelerator cable, carb issues* and pretty much everything else that i've forgotten.... It was time.

The key was ready to turn!

And, off course, everything was fine and we all lived happily every after.

The end!










What didn't happen:

 NO OIL PRESSURE. Must be a sender fault eh?


Cool. Fixed.


Must be another connector.


Cool. Fixed.


Probs the light in the dash.



Cool. Fixed.


At this stage, shit means that after actually checking real pressure that we have an issue. 

And, may I proudly present to you, whanau, the issue.


Yeah. That's the oil pump. As pretty as it looks, it's inability to spin is considered less that satisfactory. 


Will our hero escape the never-ending BL inflicted issues? Will he instead go for a bike ride and forget such a traumatic event in his life? Tune in next post for next next incredible adventure of Alex the shit car fixerer!
