I had to throw the mudguards in there. They look good. All I need now is a battery and a new rear caliper and she'll be ready to rock and roll!
A few glamour shots of her current state. I reinstalled the power steering system, soldered in some new wires to replace the old hardened stuff, and finished bolting down all of the wiring harnesses.
And all of this is would be much easier without some damned wildcat smacking all the nuts and bolts onto the ground.
Painted my new mudguards, not a bad job if I say so myself..
Color match is GO!
Here's how it went down. I finished putting everything together (engine wise) today, and with my trusty Haynes manual in hand, I went to fire her up. All I got was wub-wub-wub-WUB-wub-WUB-wub. Yeah, It sucked. So After double checking everything, connections, air, fuel spark systems, I tried again. More of the same. Maybe bad gas I thought. It's been sitting since October, off to the gas station to get a couple of gallons. Put em in, tried to start, same story. So my wife hears the noise and comes out to see how things are going. I told her what was going on, I told her and she asked if I was sure I had the spark plug wires on right. Initial reaction(in my head)
WOMAN, HOW DARE YOU QUESTION MY AUTOMOTIVE SKILLS?!
I checked the Haynes manual and I had the wires right for what was listed from 1992 and later. I had the wires exactly as listed, but decided to change the order to the 1990-1991 order.
Dammit. Pwn3d by the wife. So she's running. Good. But at the end of the video you'll see smoke rising from the exhaust header. Who's got two thumbs and forgot to tighten the O2 sensor? This guy! Tightened it down, let her warm up, and after about 20 minutes the ticking went away. I expected it would take longer because i took all the lifters apart to clean them. I started noticing a strange metallic ringing, and traced it to the exhaust tip. The baffles in the muffler seem to have broken and making a god awful ringing sound. Got a new muffler on standby though, so no worries.
So that's a project for another day. A little later on I started to hear a strange popping noise from the engine bay, sort of like bubbles popping. Looked around, nothing obvious. And then I noticed my radiator overflow tank level rising. The damned fan failed on me and it started to overheat. I got her shut down before the needle climbed to the danger zone. It was cold out and I threw a box fan on the engine to cool her down. No damage done, compression is still good across the board. anyway, enough rambling. Here's a quick video of her idling. *WARNING! There are some people who have no business taking pictures or videos. I am one of them. One day I'll have someone else take decent pics/videos to put up.
Installed the Mudguards, I had no idea how drastically they changed the profile of the rear end! The paint came out a perfect match too.
Oh yeah, and i got my plates. I can drive her now! (once i source a rear caliper.)
