Yep.... no inspections in FL....all our cars are registered there, regardless of where they are garaged.

Nice to be here right now. A friend of mine recommended this forum to me. Today is nothing special, I just rotate the tires and wash the car

My buddy bought some Brembo pads for his 02 only to discover they were sized for 1600s so he gave them to me. Threw them in today, went for a drive, and discovered yet another oil leak.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a kit to convert a square tail to a round tail?  I have some collusion repair to cut out and I was considering converting my 1974 to a roundie.

I drove my tii home for the first time today since I finished rebuilding the motor, no issues at all even though I was in 100°F heat... although im now regretting not getting my AC fixed before I took the drive. This was my first time I have rebuilt a motor and I went through the whole process on my own (except for the machining of course), I couldn't be happier with how it turned out

 

It's a fun experience for sure.  Did you balance it?  What else did you do?  How bad was it finding the timing chain parts?

This morning I finished installing front seats. Recaro Idealsitze LS I picked up from the Craigslist a couple weeks ago. I used the existing seat rails and locking mechanism but unfortunately my 2" aluminum adapter plate I bought for the job wasn't wide enough to catch the outer rails so had to make due using two separate pieces turned on end. I'm on the hunt for some wider stock but in the mean time they are secure and are a big improvement over my old worn out seats. I'm hoping my driving induced back pain is a thing of the past.

Installed front bumper and trunk torsion bar. Fog lights and windows are going in tomorrow and I'm headed to IE for a 5 speed speedo cable. One step closer to roadworthyness.

A round parts car, a grinder, and a welder.

My wife decided she didn't care for the glass in the passenger side door...

May have been the heat we're having, but the glass was half down, and she closed the door like she normally would (no slamming!) and the glass exploded...

I used all stock internals including the pistons since he scoring on the cylinder walls was light enough to where it fell within spec for the stock pistons after machining. It looked like no one has ever torn down my motor before I did, which I was surprised by since its original to the car. I replaced the water pump. oil pump, timing chain, timing chain guide and tensioner, and had the MFI pump rebuilt by Jerry Fairchild who also said that the pump looked like it had not been gone through in a very long time, possibly ever since it was first put on the car. I didn't have much trouble finding timing chain parts, but I did have some trouble finding an oil pump chain that fit right (the one I got ended up being too wide) so I just used the original one and made a custom shim to remove slack. So far I have only put about 65 miles on it but i'm happy with it and nothing has ended up broken yet. As an added bonus, I now no longer have the oil leak I couldn't track down for the life of me before the rebuild... that makes up for needing to rebuild the whole thing, right?
