It is a cheap $5 marine oil pump I bought at Ace Hardware. Works perfectly albeit you have to pump it a lot.

Hrmmm... i have a HF fluid transfer pump.

Long hoses, which i like. Moves lots fast, which i like.

Try to pump just barely too fast, and it blows the hoses out and covers everything within a 200 foot radius with whatever it is you're pumping.... i don't like so much.

I've only use mine about 3-4 times but I think I'll take a slower pump for no explosion of fluid. The only thing that is worse is an exploding pressure bleeder full of brake fluid.

On priming, I usually disconnect the CAS (which provides the signal to fire plugs and injectors) and crank until there is oil pressure.

Does this not have the same effect as just starting it though? Would it not theoretically take the same number of revolutions to build oil pressure?

yeah, but it wont start and run if you don't build pressure.

In addition, the speed of rotation is limited to what the starter can generate. For instance, you're not going to catch and zoom up to 1500-2000RPM.

Fuel line cover panel slotted in place. Original car didn't have this but luckily the CO car did. Win!



Battery assembly put together. I think I put the battery in backwards so I'll fix that later.



Decided to start attacking the wiring and getting it squared away.

Cleaning up the Drivers side wiring. Not really a wire tuck/delete but through the crafty use of zip-ties I got them pull under the fender cowl snugly. I still need to mount the diagnostic port and I can't figure out what the white connector goes to.





This is the airbag connector right? Can I just snip this puppy off?



OK, I got this wiring harness with the headlights, but the instructions/pictures for the Moss headlights referred to a much more simple wiring harness.

Anyone want to help me out in regards to where all these connect to? Can't find the 4 matching connectors on the cars harness.

As for the airbag connectors, yes you can toss that stuff. Just be aware that if you should also pull the blue module under the dash (if you haven't already).

Yeah definitely hope to avoid the random rainstorm I get caught in with this. Although I've gotten very fast at detailing cars over the past 5 years. Luckily it will stay garaged when not driving it.

My guess is that "Turbo Ed" is talking about bush pruning. LOL.

There are better ways to remove bushes than to replace them with your car.

I live in the desert, xeriscaping means we don't worry about bushes...we just have to worry about giant sandstone boulders if we go off the road!

STAY ON THE DAMNED ROAD.

Yeah Utah's rockscaping or, erm, xeriscaping? intense.

Anyway... back on track here.

In for first start.

I thought I had deleted the interior airbag sensor but is this another one I forgot to delete?

That's a bit different than the ones I've seen, but that's where Mazda mounts the airbag brain. You definitely want to remove it.

Nope, you have 4 sensors. One in each fender, one right by the hood release, and the
one pictured above, below the impossible to tighten dash screw.
