    It's a shame this engine isn't as clean on the outside as it is inside. I'm guessing it was near the coast and got a lot of ocean mist because the aluminum has a lot of surface corrosion.

    Threw a couple of bolts in to mate the head and engine so I could make the front motor mount. These FWD motors have odd ball mounting locations. As far as I can tell, the only motor motor mount is at...

    I once made the mistake of not checking what the new tires were filled to. The way it walked around when you got on it made me think something was broken. They had 45 PSI in them. (back were the only...

    Oh my, that is no bueno if I'm seeing what I think I see. Consider this a lever, where the shock (with a 1/2" bolt I'm assuming) has about a 4:1 advantage over each 8MM bolt simultaneously. Vector...
