Idle sounds awesome! You have a talent that 90 percent of people Don't have. That is doing quality work in a short period of time. Are you retired so that you can devote a lot of time to the build? Or are you just that quick. Either way I am impressed. Can't wait to see it on the road going thru the gears.
Lol, thank you. I really am stoked at how good it sounds, that's all I really need. I'll be the dude w/ the huge smile, arm out the window, and looking like a bobble head w/ that idle at stoplights. I've still got a decade or 2 before I can consider retirement, just have a pissed off 4 ft 10 in irish woman threatening my life on a daily basis so I've gotten really, really good with time management.
She's been pretty understanding on this car though, I've never had a project that was this extensive, daily apologies have gotten me this far.
Bled the brakes and clutch, used the Motive power bleeder so I didn't have to involve any wemmens. The "early american universal" adapter was a royal PIA to get it to seal. The j-bolts were fine, but the crappy dog link chain that comes with it wasn't. Every time you'd go to tighten up the chain it would pull the j-bolts sideways so all the clamping load was on the absolute outside of the rim causing the cover to bow and unseal. I've got blisters on my fingers from tightening/loosening it trying to find a happy medium that would hold enough pressure in order for me to get all the brakes bled.
The clutch adapter was 0 drama, screwed it on, even came w/ a nice swivel bit. I've got clutch, it's pretty tight feeling, can't wait to test it out.
Had to help nephew w/ tune on his truck, parent's stopped by, and I started cleaning the garage. Won't have much time this week, but I'm hoping it'll see the street this weekend.
