82 Brat progress
Posted 22 August 2003 - 04:36 PM
got the Brat out of the garage today, and had it running a while. a few issues have come up
1. heater core (or thereabouts) leak.
2. accelerator pump needs replaced in weber... was leaking gas all over the place
UPDATE: weber rebuild kit should be here Monday or tuesday.
put new centerlamp switch in, and new centerlamp. works great.
new wiring for fans coming soon.
freshly painted grill and headlight bezels in place.

took it for it's first drive in maybe 14 years! rear disc brakes work well too... has a bit of an exhaust leak, and it sounds like a Harley.
the full sized pic of the one on the photos page...
took it for a quick bath last night... still lots of Arizona dirt left on it though.....

talked with a buddy tonight, and I'm taking the Brat over to him Monday night or tuesday, to get the following...
custom front bumper w/D rings,
a modified brushguard I bought from SubaruBratBoy a long time ago
a modified Gen1 large skid plate to start at the front bumper
a custom rear bumper w/2" receiver
custom rollbar that will be made from 2 Gen1 Roll bars (thus saving my 2 Gen2 rollbars )

felt pretty cool to take a motor, put new headgaskets on it, stripped down intake, and eBay weber. new clutch kit, add rear disc brakes, put it all together, and have it driveable right off the bat...
I'm guessing the bad accelerator pump was why the weber was removed from the opel in the first place...
I've got a top for the weber that mates to the stock Opel air filter box, and I was able to find a stock open air box at the junkyard, so now I can make my snorkel....
