Second times the charm, yes? Fingers are crossed and all the wood has been knocked on. It was much easier but a tad bit more finicky to do with two people, compared to doing it myself last year. Honestly, I’m not even sure how I did it myself last year...
Everything was triple-checked for gasket fitment and positioning. The bolts were loctite’d and once’d over after everything was torqued to spec. Now, all that’s left is to:
- Resurface the flywheel and replace the pilot bearing.
- Get and install a new clutch and pressure plate.
- Replace a torn rack & pinion boot.
- replace the worn shift bushings at the transmission.
And that’s just to get it on the road. Even more after that to get it to competent daily driver status.
