Since I have half a tube left, I'd rather use it up, than go buy Ultra Grey.

This is a useful but low budget rebuild I'm doing for fun. If I can't have a little fun painting it, then why even clean anything?
Sure - The valve covers worked fine before, so did the water pipes, and the pulleys, so I guess you nailed it, in a sense.
is it so you remember what is new or worked on or fixed or whatever?
Oh, and the term I used was engine enamel.

I would of painted the valve covers yellow, then cam housing black then heads yellow and block black. and you would of had a bumble bee. or a hornet. then you could put decals that say HORNET and noone would get it. lol
or perhaps that's a stupid idea. either way. good job on the build, looks good

Oh, it's a 23 spline clutch.

I picked up this little guy for $0.70, which has a brass insert near the bottom end that I could clamp to:
And made a spot for him using a 1/4" bit in the carburetor filter mounting plate bolt hole with a little help from a zip tie on the carb mounting stud for support.
I used the T from the original PCV setup to connect the drivers side breather, PCV valve and the smaller vent to the air cleaner. It worked GREAT. (The blocked off hole in the corner of the filter mount is my brilliant idea before realizing the filter sat right over it, as my neighbor pointed out.) Now I have the proper sized tubes running to the proper ports.
Clean and designed just like the diagram in the FSM. This routing makes me proud.

I installed the one little piece of timing cover to protect the driver's side timing belt. Pics later.
The day was mostly spent on cleaning the engine bay and staring at the transmission. I think I might rebuild it another year. For now I have these questions:
-What is the Pressure Plate to Flywheel Bolt torque on a 23 spline setup? Neither my haynes manual or my partial FSM have this number.
-What is the proper torque for the bolts that hold the input shaft guide on?
That's the only piece of timing cover I'm installing on the engine:
Posted 31 August 2010 - 05:13 PM
Flywheel bolts.. 69-75 nm
tranny to engine bolts, 46-54nm
Im still looking for the others but its hard to find.

Thanks for the numbers, though. That's great.

Thanks again, beateru for the numbers you had.

The thermo vacuum switch bleeds air from the air cleaner into the egr and timing advance nodes of vacuum, effectively reducing the vacuum in those respective lines, keeping egr closed and 0 advance on the ignition timing. At these nodes supplying vac to the egr and distributor, the respective vac lines from thermo vac switch are t-ed in. Another effect of the air bleeding in is it leans out the air/fuel mixture a little while the choke is closed.
No air can flow in or out of any of the ports on the thermo vac switch and the egr valve sees vac signal when it's supposed to and the disty advance sees vac when it's supposed to. No air is bleeds into the intake or bypasses the throttle plate.
How did I do?
I always thought it was the other way around, the switch just cut off the vac supply. Instead it nullifies it. Cool.
Here's the vac switch all hooked up:
Above, you can see where the EGR is T-ed into the valve. Below, underneath everything you can see where the distributor advance is T-ed in to the valve.
I got fresh air from the hose that goes from the pcv system to the air cleaner:
Thanks for all the advice you guys threw my way.
