Re: 2.3L of fun

The line still feels soft and flexible. The slave was a cheap ($11) from lordco. The master was also from lordco and I am sure it is cheap also. The fluid was in there 3 years. I think I will just be changing it and the brake fluid every year to avoid future issues.

Re: 2.3L of fun

The master said it was for a 510 but it was not. It is a 5/8 bore. The thread on the fitting is 3/8 instead of the metric it should be. That's not a big deal. I had some 3/8 fittings laying around. The shaft on the plunger was also too long. Again easy fix. The rubber hose is only 4 years old. I wil...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I go to replacing the clutch master and slave today. It went smoothly with my wife helping to bleed the system. It was her first time sitting in the car! It took about an hour total to do everything. I didn't know my clutch pedal felt soft but it did. Draining the system almost no fluid came out. Wh...

Re: The Red Baron

Went to Rebello to drop off the oil pan and timing cover for the new engine and was able to see the forged JE pistons for the 2360cc build. Who knew that a piston could look so beautiful?! LOL. http://i.imgur.com/USVYxY8.jpg Those do look pretty, I wish I had taken a picture of mine before they wen...

Re: WINTHROP Drive 2017

I just put a large note on the fridge so no other plans get "accidentally" made by my wife. I am coming.

Re: WINTHROP Drive 2017

It looks like my wife has planned my daughter's birthday for the weekend we are planning on going on this drive. Hopefully I don't have to miss out.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Interesting. Maybe it is just the way they are. I'm going to put in my catch can for my diff this week and swap out the clutch master and slave next week.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Typically the ring and pinion free play is about .006" in which you'll see in the stub as "Free Rotation" You can pull the diffs rear cover and setup a dial indicator on a magnetic base and check that play. I'm sure you probably already know this, it's just that I'm a bit bored at wo...

Re: 2.3L of fun

Well I just put the car on the lift to check for any leaks and nut & bolt check. My diff is .a king a bit of noise and one stub has a bit of free rotation in it even though the stub is tight and shows no wear. I think there may be something wrong with the center section after having the CV kit b...

Re: 2.3L of fun

I just got back from a good drive to really test out the tires. Wow do I love them, they are everything good about the A050's with way better road manners. I have to run with higher pressures but nothing ridiculous. The 50's wanted to follow every little crack or line in the road, these do not. You ...

Re: WINTHROP Drive 2017

At that distance I may need to fill up on the way. With as Dean put it "my badly controlled leak" for fuel economy.

Re: 2.3L of fun

Thanks guys. It was a lot of fun. I have never driven back there before. There are a few fun roads in that area. He was amazed at how fast he could go into a corner. I kept telling him he could dive in faster. He only got up to and 6/10. I drove him around once and he was blown away that I never use...
