Unfortunately I wasn't the one that did the conversion... and I no longer have the car so I can't go out and look.

I'll dig through my old pictures tonight and see if I might have something...

MY GOD...... :burnout::burnout::slobber:

I'm just stunned by how good this build is coming along..

fyi from all that I've researched the AWIC pump should be on the lowest side; ie near the bottom feed of the radiator..

I'm really looking forward to seeing this run..

This, those pumps are designed to push fluid, not pull it. Just like a fuel pump.


Also, that vacuum canister is fairly crucial to making the HVAC system work. ;)

ya i could not find what the canister did in the books what does it really do ? so it controls the heater controls ? so i need to put it back in a different spot i take it !

which sensor controls the turbo on the dash ?

So I have two questions.

1. How did you get the mustache bushings out of the mustache?
2. Where are you in Hamilton? I am ironically in Burlington right now and odd as it sounds I would love to see this?
