Cleaned the engine and transmission some yesterday then started looking it over.

Missing screws:






Should this have a cover on it?




Transmission off




Yuk! lost of dust from rallycrosses.




Is this the stock clutch then?




Is this leak coming from the pressure sensor or the oil line?




More dirt




Not much clutch disc left




So, not sure where the leak is but leaning towards the crank seal.What do you think?






What's this on top of the transmission and why is it damp?




Today we start ordering parts.

I lean toward the seal myself (by those pics). Might could be a bit of seepage at the case seam (hope not! that could be a SOB to repair!), hard to tell.

That "thing" on the top of the trans appears to be a breather, if what I am seeing bears out. Oil mist has made the surrounding area wet, dust sticks to the mist, more mist, more dust, etc. It likely has no real filtration (just a metal cap crimped-over the top of a stub, might have a small baffle in there somewhere).

If you should decide to install one with an actual filter on it - either make certain you can replace it (as it WILL clog) where it is; or use a hose/tubing/whatever to relocate the breather where you CAN access and replace it.

Looks like your seal needs to be replaced.

Thanks for the helpful suggestions, especially the last one.

All seals in the rear will be replaced whether I blew them or not!

Started the refurb.

POR15 treatment on the worst of the tin ware.



New gasket for the crankcase breather cover.




New shift rod boot as we destroyed ours on the way out




new oil pressure switch.




New oil cooler seals.




New crankshaft seal.




Clutch and flywheel back in place. We only replaced the clutch disc as we will be using an uprated clutch once we move up a few classes next year perhaps. This will get us by for now especially as the old one was almost down to the rivets.




The old distributor cap, rotor arm and plugs don't look too bad but will be replaced never the less.









We are going to adjust the valves while the engine is out. Seems like a good idea. Set #1 cylinder to TDC.




Shouldn't this be a bit more to the right?




This is supposed to make things easier. I guess we'll find out tomorrow.





Would have adjusted the valves yesterday but got distracted by tryig to make the tow vehicle look like the race vehicle.




Two weeks till the next event. Still have:

valve adjustment
oil
trans fluid change
plug wires
cut air filter cover
attach transmission
replace fuel filter
install in car


Think we'll do it?

Adjusting valves was pretty easy. I followed the engine rotation system for the first side then got fed up with that and just made sure each valve I adjusted was fully closed. Went a lot quicker then.




These came with the valve cover kit. Not sure where they go.




Scored some free OE plug leads in good shape.




Which meant a bit of rerouting






A spare air cleaner cover led to some experimenting.






Basically ready to go back in. Just a few details to take care of in the engine bay.



Aiming for wheels down by Thursday.

The car is running nice now. Valve adjustment made it quieter, new trans fluid made the shifting smoother, despite the missing syncro teeth and the Bilsteins are holding up the rear with aplomb. This weekend we take to the dirt again in Detroit SCCA's RallyCross. Just to get us all in the mood here are some pictures from the last outing.

HA!

I wondered if anyone would spot that. You can find them in a dictionary.

Some great shots taken at last weekend's RallyCross courtesy of Chris Lee. Let's start with the more significant ones:




Yes, we scored 1st and 2nd in class again only now we have clinched the same places in the Championship. Scott in first, me in 2nd.

Now, the rest of the pictures and a short video:
