Default sean's cheap thrills, 90 1.6 with subaru td04

I get that, to be honest it's already started with me, just not as far along as you.

Just drove anther 18 miles to get groceries, again nothing over 4k... well first gear got away from me and we saw 5k once. No dipstick pop. 5th gear passing is nice to.

Pat, the oil is actually 10-30 not 10-40, i saw the jug in the garage this morning. I got another jug, need to swap that out and tear open the oil filter, make a heatshield and drive the bitch.

Its quite preliminary, but logs indicate the intercooler is working pretty dam well too.

I know everyone does oil diff for break in, I did 700 miles before I changed mine on the current motor. I think 100.00% of OEM new cars don't change the oil after the first drive. If there are ANY that do this, I'm not aware of them.

Glad it's working well!

FWIW, I have shitty summit racing AN connections on my oil system, and after trying everything, I cleaned and RTV'd the mating surfaces on 2 of them that just refused to seal. Next time I'll buy steel if possible (i've NEVER had a steel an fitting leak, ever) or buy whatever the best aluminum brand of fitting is. Screw oil leaks!

I love never needing to leave 5th on the highway. Instaspool, wheee!

You have ebay intercooler right? It's a little champ.

I just did an 80 mile loop on the highway up to KC. Passing people on the highway is fun.

I bet the cheap summit AN fittings are made in the same factory as the ebay junk, which leaked profusely for me.

Do they make steel hose AN fittings? I'd imagine they work the same way? I have a few steel AN fittings on my oil feed and they seal great.

I know in industrial equipment they use JIC, which is very very similar to AN. And everything is steel, and nothing leaks. Also it's serviceable without damaging the fittings. I swear with AN it seems if you disconnect/reconnect it a few times the flare gets damaged. I know for sure with steel, they are a lot more forgiving. You can tighten, or over-tighten, or really over-tighten them, and the steel will be fine.

Hydraulic hoses are JIC for example.

What's sad is the summit fittings had good reviews.... They do look quality, they just aren't is my experience.

I think the only difference is AN is aeronautical-navy or some other crap, JIC is made to lesser tolerances. It's quite popular on my machine tools for hydraulic and sometimes coolant lines.

This is all old specs though, I very highly doubt the aluminum AN **** you get from summit or ebay quite holds the standards it used to. Funny how the lesser tolerance'd JIC fittings seem to work better nowadays.

JIC and AN are completely interchangeable as I understand it. I've never seen a JIC/AN steel braided hose fitting, not in person at least.

Ive always done 50-100miles, change, then again at 1k, then regular intervals from that point. Cant hurt to leave it in a little longer, filters exist for a reason.

I cant say im completely surprised, they were cheap *** fittings. We use steel JIC on all the things at work, never had one leak.

Army Navy fitting

Joint Industry Council fitting

"They(AN) are similar to other 37 flared fittings, such as JIC, which is their industrial variant. "

We have a pnuematic hose crimper at work, with dies from 1/4" to 1/2". I should order a 5/8" die and then go buy some real hose and fittings.

<p>Lots of pre-made hoses, like Kinugawa, use steel&nbsp;(or stainless steel)&nbsp;-AN&nbsp;fittings on flexible hose. There are other sources as well, that can be ordered to custom lengths, with straight or 90* ends.&nbsp;Maybe the ones that Shuiend gets made up locally are as well.</p>

Ive always wanted my own crimper just for the bikes brakes lines, let alone car stuffs. I can tear up a brake line in one season on the dirtbikes, and even if I didnt, I have yet to find someone (galfer, goodridge, russell) who knows how to clock the fittings right. At $60 a piece for something that never fits, it gets old.

Possibly found a cheap 99 engine. Guy bought it for his 94, but it doesnt fit because his 94 has a distributor, and the 99 doesnt. makes perfect sense.

Anyways, im going to pull an aidan here, spoon feed please:

1. Distinguishing features of a 99 from the 94-97 and 01+? I mean physically, so if it is an actual BP, I can tell which one.
2. Can I convert the returnless to return style?
3. How? answers including $400 aftermarket rails will be ignored
4. give me answers to the qusetion im to ignorant to ask

<p>In short go buy it RIGHT NOW</p><p>he is confused because the cam sensor moved from the back of the exhaust cam in 94 to the front of the intake in 99/00. And looks nothing like the 94 CAS.</p>

He is obviously confused as no miata ever came equipped with a distributor. It is to my benefit. Couldn't make it today, set up for tomorrow after work, I'll have the cherry picker loaded in the truck ready to go.
