Another package of goodies arrived today for W&N - pics of said goodies attached.
Decided to have a professional rebuild my head instead of doing it myself because I tend to break things, over tighten and take twice as long as it should. So Friday afternoon I dropped off the metric mechanic head, Korman intake and associated bits to a local engine builder RAC engines in laurel MD. I’ll be dropping off the new cam for him later this week.
So - Slowly coming together.
paint update - there is none. its been a few weeks since I dropped the car off for paint and quite honestly- I’m nervous.
My my worst fear of is that they close down and I lose my car and deposit - like I said Worst fear. Second to worst is that they take forever to finish.
I don’t want to be a pest by calling every week - but I’m going to anyway.
Over the the weekend, I got a few seals replaced on the getrag 245 (input shaft, and selector shaft seal).
Had and some troubles getting the selector shaft seal in because of a prior guibo/flex disk failure damaged the transmission case. Pics of that in the general discussion area.
I still need to change the output shaft seal- but I don’t have the right tool to get the bolt off - think it’s the thin walled deep impact 30mm.
That’s it for now - wish me luck
