Well there's an interesting story behind this one, we bolted up the flexplate to my engine after taking the flywheel off and my brother put the torque converter and transmission on.
Unknown to us at the time that we apparently have the wrong flex plate. After some looking around I found out that there was two sizes, 168 and another size (which escapes me right now.
Anyhow, just my luck when I found one on eBay with only 6 hours left and .99c on it without a bid. I quickly emailed the guy and he said it was 168 tooth, and he was in Sydney, so I thought, let's have a go shall we.
Well there hasn't been much progress of late as everything that needs to be done is going to cost money.
But we did put some fuel in the tank and then blow through with pressurised air to see the quality of the fuel when it came through the tank, this will let us know if the tank was full of rust or not. Thankfully the fuel came through OK.
We also have dodgied up some wiring for a harness as currently the australian dollar has taken a dive (along with the rest of the worlds economy!).
I will be working on the car this weekend and hopefully get it to crank!!
Well I got the dipstick in today......well most of the way, there was a few mm or so at the end I couldn't get in properly, but this is OK as I will sort it out later, for now we just need to make sure oil isn't going to spill out of the engine so I can run it.
After I put the dipstick in we bolted up the exhaust manifold, so now we are one step closer to getting this running
