      Well I have used the same set of weitecs on two cars now and the adjusters have been seized since 05. This should be slightly better. The back tires don’t hit the bumper anymore.

      What? Thrash for a couple days only to find something that keeps you from doing what you want to be doing?

      Ha! My statement was about taking coolant out for water, but your statement is likely also true. I had my 4yo buzzing around all day so tough to concentrate at all.

      Replaced all the pop rivets in the hatch and new silicone



      Had an oops w the front end over the winter. Blew off the trailer even with it strapped and bent the pass side pretty good. Got it tweaked back into shape. “Good enough” at least for now.





      Got some electrical work to do, top off the water, drain the old gas and its fire time.

      Didn’t quite finish. Got the seat moved 2” forward and remounted. Filled with water. Moved some things on the electrical panel to accommodate the new MS3-Pro Ultimate. Got the CAN bus up and working again other than the gauges. Fuel pump and water pump speed control working. Need some fresh fuel and its fire time.

      Didn’t update the saga last time. On that pass I broke my pedal stop likely on the 2-3 shift. Jammed 3-4 pretty hard and the clutch wouldn’t release after so I packed it in.

      Tested the mc and slave and both “seem” fine. Trans is out and clutch fork and throwout seem fine too. I am thinking slave is lazy or sticking, as its the last stock part left. Have a cm hydro slave to put in and we will see if its fixed tomorrow.

      I thought a backed out flywheel bolt might hav been my problem but it was a warped clutch/flywheel.

      So you had no noises, just wouldn’t release the clutch?

      Hard to tell on the noise it happened during the pass. Pedal stop broke on the 2-3 and jammed the 3-4 and then wouldn’t shift. At about 110mph the lexan windshield moved and let a load of accumulated dirt and grinding dust all inside the car. So... it was a busy pass.

      Would have been 70lbft w red and moly under the heads. But I bet this little bugger didn’t even see final torque. Last year Bill and I swapped the longblocks and I did the fw/clutch/pp at like 4am. I usually mark the bolts after torque so I don’t forget...that would have been smart.

      At least its simple (ish) and can fix it easily.

      As far as the ms3-pro, its awesome.

      Well, not just the one loose. Eight more took very little to pop loose and one was pretty tight. I don’t think I napped on all of them. Crank pulley bolt was loose too and I have never touched it.

      Reinstalled fw bolts and pp and got the trans back in. Little stuff to finish, just too much to hit the track tonight. Should be good to go for some passes on Sat.

      Good news and bad.

      Car went down the track twice to some low 12s with minor (driver induced) issues.

      3rd pass on the 2-3 shift wouldn’t go into gear. Same issue with the clutch.

      Going back to factory flywheel bolts and praying it makes it through next weekend.

      Looks good in the yard though.

      are you running a crank pulley with an harmonic damper or just a billet pulley? my chevelle had issues backing out crank bolts before i put a fluidamper on. was going to go ahead and safty wire the crank hardware but gave the damper a swap first and had zero issues again. not that a 454 is much like a vr6 but..... wanted to ask


      oh and i need to pick your brain about ms....... some great person broke into my storage yard and cut the harness and stole the ecu out of my mk2 along with a lot of other stuff needed to make it run so now its redo v41.0 time ug... wonder if in the dark the ecu looked like a stereo component since its mounted on the passenger floorboard.

      Stock pulley still. Have the fluidampr on the shelf. Wanted to do a dyno comparison.

      Thats some bad news! Hit me up and I will get you sorted when you are ready.
