    Got a chance to finish drilling and tapping the caliper mount on the knuckle. Ran the tap through the other hole as well to clean it up. Bearing on this side is measured already so it can go back together next.

    It’s a gorgeous day and I have a replacement spacer #18. I broke the vice turning it to 150lbft but was able to improvise to measure the resistance. Shaved it to a #16 and we are good to go.

    Got it all back together. New caliper and my drill and tap of the caliper bolt hole worked and is holding fine. Then I cut the speed sensor out of the junk knuckle and installed that.

    It’s now on all 4s waiting for a battery charge lol

    Is there anything you haven't replaced on this car? It looks great, but damn man, everything that could be bad seems like it is.

    Rear brake hard lines are all that’s left after this. I have the lines already. Most of it is just me not spending time lol

    The yellow top wasn’t completely flat so I jumped it and let it run for awhile. It started right up again after so we will see lol

    Now for a bath! Been in the garage since October.

    Drilled out and tapped the seat bolt that broke on day 3 of owning this car. Holding nicely.


    Bought a new battery cuz the charger said both batteries I had were bad (you could watch the voltage decay on the multimeter lol) and now I have a battery light. Took it out for a few miles in the rain and it drove pretty good. Revs over 5k so now I know the wheel sensor is good.

    I tested the resistance of all the grounds (cleaned them up and made new wires for some) they are under .5 so not worried there. I wonder if the terminals are fucking me again...

    The car is not going over 12.5v when running so I don’t think it charging.
