Well, that was the plan.
Mother Nature had her own plans.
I had the engine mated to the tranny and was getting ready to start buttoning things up and I got hit by a pretty good thunderstorm. Lighting and thunder stuff, with some pretty hard downpours.
So that sent me inside for a few hours till it dried out a little.
Went back out and all I had left to do was drop in the rad and put oil in the crankcase.
I gave up til tomorrow.
Hopefully everything will go smoothly with the new engine break-in, cause I had a talk with WagonsOnly tonight. He's going to be driving another one of my cars to the Show next weekend. And it needs work before that:rolleyes:
Axle or wheelbearings, I'll get r done:-p
MykeysToy's Wife will be driving the RX for me, with me in the Hatch.
I'll have my own little caravan.
So I could be the only person to have 3 cars at the Show.
Do they have a award for that?

I dont know if its my disty, its not from a 89, I think its a 87/88. But I never get the timing right on this thing. I set it at #1 and it wont fire. I backed it off and then advanced it, still no fire:mad: (Shawn again?).
So I pull the plug out of #1 cylinder and make sure its on the comp stroke and then I pulled the cap off the disty and its off by about 90deg. Reset the disty and cranked it again........fired right up:headbang:
Then it sounds like a rod knock:-\ Ok ok, just needs to run for a bit to get the fluids flowing every where. It took about 15min and got a little toasty too. I made sure it had coolant in it, about 5min later everything setteled down and it ran smooth. But I have a bad sensor somewhere, its got a bad miss under accel. I'll check the timing again and all the plug wires, etc.
I tell yeah tho, when it first started up, I was a little worried;)

Well, its purring like a kitten now. Got the bugs chased out and its sounding great. Needs a good wax and buff and that ones ready for the Show. Now I need to work on the XT and get it ready:rolleyes:
Maybe Emily could have hooked you up with a "buy one get one free deal".
