      What are your plans with the Achilles heal of these cars, the front Diff?

        Keep a spare on stock haha, I don't think it will be much of a problem though, not planning on drag racing or continuous launches

          I noticed you were an apprentice electrician, are you part of the ibew by chance?

            No I'm not. I've been working under my dad and he's been teaching me a lot but he's going to be getting me in that thing. Why do you ask.

                  A key made of drift wood probably would not have held up very long, hence the bent valves...

                  I'm sorry someone had to say something!

                    Got some work done over the weekend, it's starting to come together finally.

                    No more abs. Someone had mentioned that I should keep the lines the same length when deleting the abs, anyone know anything about that?



                    Got the electric fan mounted up, old bits of aluminium signs worked great and it's sturdy.




                    And after a lot of thinking and debating I pulled the trigger on a freshly rebuilt transmission from guten parts!

                    No more death rattle:D




                    I thought id want more power so I added more blackness




                    Also got the new motor mounts in and the crossmember all cleaned up and ready to go



                    Hopefully the motor will be back from the machine shop soon so I can get to fabricating the exhaust and intake, I've been practicing on my tig welding for this

                      If you don't mind me asking how much was the rebuilt IX manual trans?
                      How to remove, install or convert to pop out windows

                        They offer them for 1600 + shipping. I just made the drive to pick it up to save a little money.

                            Ya that's what I thought, I wasnt playing a guessing game and spending 800 on a used one that will have bad synchros in another year. And since reliability is my number one goal, I expected this build to be expensive

                              Is that including the core? Or did they give you money for that? I ask because I was considering buying another manual and rebuilding it myself. My transmission shifts good and I have no issues other than the infamous Getrag rattle. But if I bought a rebuilt one I don't see the point of rebuilding my old one and if the price is cheaper with the core than that is even better.

                                Nope that was including the core, I thought about rebuilding mine also but the more I looked into doing that, it seemed like nobody wanted to rebuild them. And I heard horror stories about splitting and reattaching the case
