Basically to get one trim piece off the whole forward interior needed to come out all so I could get to a few screws. Sidenote: Look at this alarm wiring! It’s tied into, locks, Windows, lights, individual sections of the ignition sequence, horns, ignition coils(seems excessive) and probably more considering all these…
Went to a shop that was suggested by a fellow Oppo, cost $66 and they were done in 30 minutes.(because they had nothing to do) I am pleased.
Id really prefer not to spend an additional $220 on a flywheel if I don’t need to considering a new clutch is already $400 from Collins adapters.(and that’s the only place I can buy said clutch/flywheel) So tell me what you think of this flywheel after the jump.
A Canon Rebel T3 with a 55-250mm lense, heres a few shots testing it out on the unloved daily. A 1988, 5 speed and she’s done 6000 miles in 49 days commuting 5 days a week.
I’ve been hesitant to talk about it because I was waiting until it’s smogged and in my name. But alas, thats taking a while and oppos slow lately so heres a rundown of a $1350 sc400's issues.
They still exist.
A 1993 for $1350, more details eventually.
First of all; Thank you Oppo for your support. Let’s start from the beginning, I had just finished replacing all the gaskets down to the heads and it was time for a test drive.....
Spent 4 hours writing it and waiting for images to upload only for the page to close and kinja to have only saved the headline. I’ve been on OPPO for 4 years and this may be the second time where I’ll have to take a break for a couple months and wait for kinja to get updated again and be usable. Currently mobile is…
Fires out now, tow truck eta is 2 hours away. I’d take pics of how it looks now but it’s dark. More tomorrow.
After blowing the headgaskets and having the car overheat(not sure which happened first) the AutoZone thermostat was supposed to lock itself open under the high temps. It did not, furthermore it looks nothing like the beefy original design.
-Bolts strewn everywhere-
And realized that I can just stand in the engine bay instead of bending over 3 ft of front overhang. The game has changed.
Blew the head gaskets on my way to work. Is anyone surprised? No. More after the jump.
While averaging 12-15mpg, so it’s good for another 230 miles. Also got a couple compliments while getting gas and the rear tires installed which was really nice.
Spotted a Crosstrek in the wild.
Its like YouTube but funnier and with more redneck. Link below, enjoy.
It’s so tacky, yet somehow so attractive.Pop ups, Long hood, Mid engined, *That* styling, what more could you want?!
