    Yea still got more to do though.

    Need to do a VZ radiator conversion to get rid of the overflow bottle.

    And a few other things to tidy up to make me happy.



    Need to re-secure the fuse since i replaced the power cable for the amps yesterday since it was ####ed..


    Also found out while doing that my Clutch master has a tiny leak and is leaking clutch/brake fluid into the cabin so thats my next thing to change.

    Gotta pull the sump off tomorrow and change the o-ring on the oil pump pickup, its perished and im getting **** oil pressure when the car is cold.

    So just gonna pull the k-frame off and use a brace i got off Ari to hold the engine up.

    Also found out a few weeks ago my clutch master is leaking into the cabin, slow leak of fluid running behind the carpet.

    So ordered a new clutch master cyl today to throw in next weekend.

    And decided well since i'm changing the master i might as well get rid of the crappy reservoir and get a new one.

    So i did and then decided well i'm ordering that off this seller, might as well order my power steering reservoir replacement.

    Got some black fuel hose to shut strike up too :)

    And no strike i still haven't got the cash for the radiator conversion, maybe in a few months.

    nope havent cleaned the other crap off em yet, will do it when i remember.


    Sump gaskets changed, oil pick up o ring has been changed.

    Got proper oil pressure again.

    Found out my engine mounts are shagged when i dropped the k-frame last night so now i need to get some of those.

    2 packages waiting at home for me, im guessing they will be my clutch and power steering resi's.

    Double check that the power steering reserviour has the baffles inside of it, if not your pump will be noisy and eventually fail.
    Seen them come without the baffles before

    (by baffles i mean the little separator to stop the fluid aerating
