Body is coming along


Today I did a few things on the motor.

Installed the headers (I realise two bolts aren't tight Took the pic before I was done.)


Glad I checked the thermostat. This is how it was before I touched it.


Aluminum Thermostat Housing


Pressed the solid diff mounts into the cover as well

Supersprint replicas. I'm pretty sure you can get the same ones on ebay for dirt cheap.

I've had them looked at, and apparently they're top notch quality.

The housing presses against the o-ring on the thermostat to seal. Then there is an orange gasket inside the housing to seal one of the coolant pathways.

Made my little custom heater core bypass today:


Installed all bushings and the subframe. Hopefully these washers that came with the powerflex bushings hold up. They look a little thin.




Cleaned up a little: (Temp suspension )


This will go in tomorrow:
