    Re-use of Aftermarket Donor Springs

    Still prepping the pedals has proven to be a bad time, lol. I broke the bolt holding the clutch sensor, there was thread lock was on the bolt & snapped with use of an impact driver.... Took some time to grind a slot into it and i think heating up the bolt is what actually help it come out...

    been a hot minute for sure... but given the situation this was not a top priority to press forward until settling into the new norm.... sigh since the last post, was able to finalize the body harness prep work... there are still a few things to complete once the assembly begins, but for now I...

    Another Harness Mistake

    after rewatching the original wiring section i noticed that the ignition assembly has a spot that the keylock would normally go in... this is confirmation enough for me that I can delete those wires fully in the manual build

    Another Harness Mistake

    Bump for any updates still looking for answers regarding the EVAP wire, I think I'll have to end up sourcing a new canister for the NYS cat requirements and the unlabeled wire that terminates at the body to engine connector... I can't for the life of me find the connector to trace back where...

    Another Harness Mistake

    I did take note when i finally decided to plunge into the project that there are three other NYS builds and it was confirmed through Bar-Air that the NYSDMV requires a handbrake to pass safety regulations... I'm LoOkInG FoRwArD tO FiGuRiNg ThAt OnE OuT I suppose I should have asked for...

    Another Harness Mistake

    whoa... this escalated fast, ha ha. CAN confirm it is the same as what BradR says... thats the position you want to use to reinstall a handbrake ground... the connector is a single wire connector thankfully i did not have ABS control on this donor, never had to remove it during the wire harness...

    Another Harness Mistake

    I've adhered to the newer harness series as much as possible as it is more thorough and taken some time to double check the old series too for any thing i might have missed. working with a naturally aspirated manual should make things straight forward I thought... some things were, thanks to...
