Getting Ready For New Engine

02 Sep 2008    racing

A quick update on the state of affairs. Transmission was cleaned and all the seals were replaced, so hopefully no more leaks. Also added a high pressure fuel hose to the vent tube to catch any overflowing fluid when the transmission gets hot. This should help alleviate the mess around the transmission body or dropping fluid on track. The engine has been re-fitted with all its gadgets and awaiting clutch alignment tool before the new clutch and pressure plate gets put on. And as a last step, I went ahead and cleaned the hood area of years of oil and grime! Parts from Pelican Parts will be here shortly and then on to putting the shiny engine in its new body.
