Very nice new ti there Mr. Crow!


I started my brake upgrade, then found the one new rotor wasn't quite new. No new one until tomorrow. So much for the test drive to work tonight.

Up to my elbows!
 
Hi All,

I haven't posted in sometime, though I've been lurking.
Its spring time here in Fl. 82 today!

Today I removed the valve cover for the second time - yes I $&%$-ed up. :mad::
Stripped out the valve cover bolt seat on the left front corner - Helicoil in the morning - with coffee. Joy.

Next up - The Oil Filter housing gasket. M42-aluminum

Cheers!

mocked up my Dinan intake and found a rip in my intake hose, I've got an idea in my head on how to make a DIY hard hose to replace the rubber one, I'll post up once I figure it out more :biggrin:

intake's been converted to short ram and the hose has been wrapped in duct tape temporarily

Nice pick up there Mr. Crow! Now he is back in the game with the new ti! :biggrin: Any more details on the little new toy? More pics?

The weather is getting nice up here in MA so thanks for the motivation guys! ;) Still waiting for some night and day pics from the tifreak!

Yesterday I got my A/C problem diagnosed... $100 for time and materials.

Today I got the problem repaired. (leak in the low side line) Also had the receiver drier replaced. The mechanic noticed that the belts were cracked pretty badly so those were replaced too. $685 for time, parts, and materials.

I ordered some parts last week, and I've got another part to pick up in a few days that'll put me over the $1000 for the week. Yay. But hey... the A/C is frosty now. :-D

Todays project was to install the new cowling bits. Silly me dropped a washer into the air plenum (see cowling replacement thread) so I added "change cabin air filters" to the project list. Total time was about 1:30 which included changing the cowling, figuring out a way to make the cheap E-bay filters work, installing the air filters, and changing clothes.

I'll add a pic of the filter mega-ghetto-hack in another thread once I get the pic off my phone and find the thread.

Well this is for Saturday. Installed a new Duralast Battery, and new belts. Took my dad and I forever to get the belts installed, was very tricky but got it. Next is to get a new radiator, going to either go to Napa or Autozone to get one not sure who has the best price for a brand new one.

Tony, you want to help me install the new radiator before you leave abroad? I'll take it to your house PM your address and the appropriate date for me to come over.

Mr. Crow I have a smiley that shows how I feel about your new purchase :rockon: and :_pelvic: oh and this one :joy:

Jess, have fun with the Coupe! That thing will be a beast with the S52 :clap:!! oh one more thing jess :useless:

Greg, I sent you a PM

By the way; don't buy the radiator at NAPA or AutoZone. Go to autohausaz.com

I checked Advance Auto and they sell it for $200 [approximately]. Autohausaz.com sells it for $164 with free shipping. While you are at it make sure you buy a new radiator cap and if possible a brass bleed screw.

I think I have a spare brass coolant drain bolt for the engine block so don't worry about that one lol.

You can get them cheaper than that on E-bay. In fact, several people here have gotten them there, including myself. I can't remember the name of the seller, but my mechanic said it was a Behr (?) "second" or something like that.
