My '83 GL: The Ski Wagon

Every time I look at my wagon, and come back and see your thread here, I kick myself for not getting anything productive done. I'll be back at it soon though.

that thing must be really fast with one pouty man power. ill go ahead and assume you looked at the back of that clutch fork too right? capn double check thats what i am
Then maybe he can have Arron Rodgers stop by and do a discount double check

Rob, I did not check the back of the fork. I didn't remove it. Don't think I really want to...? What are the odds it has cracking?
James, I am kinda displeased with the progress I'm making. I really wanted to be farther along by now.
I made one boo boo, I didn't mark the flywheel before I took it off. So now I will have to fine TDC #1 so I can put the flywheel back one once I install the new rear mail seal.

as far as the the bearing, i wonder if it was for another application that used the same clutch on a different make with a different flywheel with a smaller hole but the same trans spline.
It is an interesting little bearing and i would keep it as a novelty
maybe if you go for a black underhood go for a flat or satin to not outshine the motor and flatter sheens hide imperfections(rusty texture) better than glossy.
For all that work you got going on you could easily stuff a dual range in as you go back together. but then you would need another clutch.
so this dude that liz knows randomly saw your car and sent a picture not knowing that we know that car.

I will keep the bearing for laughs, amazing how small it is, and how thin the rollers are.
I would total drop in a 5spd D/R if I had one, but these things just don't fall out of the sky around here like out west. The 3.900 4spd D/R isn't to bad, I'm running at 3000rpm at like 75mph, so its about 1100rpm lower than the 3AT Loyale at that speed. Maybe I should just swap a 2.2 Driveline in this car and make a rocket out of it, store the EA81 in my room as a show piece.
Rob, Interesting. I will indeed check out the fork.
Should I apply grease to the face of the throw-out bearing, or no? I did regrease the mount the TOB presses onto, the cast piece that slides on the output shaft, obviously, that is supposed to be greased.

applying to the face would cause a mess... you don't want grease flung around and potentially getting on you clutch disc.

40 yrs ago I was taught to only apply grease to the input shaft, the TO brg collar(that the TO brg rides on), the pivot(s) for the fork & the pilot bushing(if it has one). Just enough grease to coat the input shaft & then wipe it lightly with a rag.

just remember that i have a whole d/r laying around taking up space....
You do! ************, I may have to offer you up some bones and stash that on my place. You have an EA82 Header by chance?

No worries on the header.

I'll trade for handyman labor if you can help me work on my house. do you sand hardwood floors? i want to scrub and acid wash the basement floor for epoxy or floor paint. we need to re-engineer the kitchen if you know anything about cabinets. watever's clever
Posted 21 September 2012 - 09:59 PM
I never sanded floors, but I can't imagine it being too hard, I catch on quick. I can probably scrub the floor, you gonna use a Single disc scrubber or something?

I need something until I build my UEL header.
I wonder what shipped would run on that?
