Interior/Exterior / Shift knobs - what's your favourite shape
« Last post by Gunnytron on Today at 03:31:36 PM »
I have a GTO style shift knob and although I do like it, I have been tempted to get a ball type shift knob (stainless maybe) as much for cosmetic reasons as anything else but they do look like they fit nice in the hand.

What do you lot prefer? teardrop, ball, GTO, piston?

Drivetrain / How do you remove the dowel pins from the flywheel
« Last post by Gunnytron on Today at 12:36:32 PM »
I am intending to get my flywheel resurfaced whilst it's out but I can't see how the 2 clutch alignment dowels are removed.

Are they pressed in, if so, from the front or rear?

Maybe they are threaded?

Any ideas?

Looking for one without aftermarket bushings.  The bushings can be bad. 

Hoping someone has one laying around from their explorer/cobra swap.

Cars for sale / Re: 1993 FD Single Turbo proven 200MPH Mile car
« Last post by gunpilot on Today at 09:33:10 AM »
Reduced to $25,000 to give new owner room for daily driving improvements:

1.  Add in larger radiator fans.  You will have to make room by reducing intercooler size or moving things around.  Its tight in the nose.  I had a plan for a 2in deep intercooler and fans from a Ford Contour.  Its a dual fan/shroud/relay setup I have used multiple times with success.
2.  Remove digital dash and add hard mount gauges.  Only need RPM, Speedometer, and water temp.  Oil pressure, boost, and AFR are already in the center console.
3.  Reinstall front blinkers.  Wiring is there tucked into the nose, but lenses were removed to make room for turbo piping.  You will have to come up with a solution.  Maybe some LED strips.
4.  Install second seat.  I have it new in wrapper. 
5.  Add AC if you want to beat the heat
6.  You can remove trunk radiator tank and associate hoses.  It's connected to water pump where heater core goes.  Just loop the connection.  Hose included.
7.  Get better headlights.  This stink at night.  They make some great HID buckets for these cars.

I have my new project and need room in the driveway.

Anyone changed jobs since this thread started?
I posted in 2014 when I was 2 years into going out on my own.

Now I'm 2 years into real estate investing and been very blessed so far. We'll see how I feel when I look back in a few years after the next crash.

Figured I壇 update this again...

I was reading the first post when I had just run a 5k under 25 minutes and was super excited.    This week I went out and ran faster 5ks than that on my lunch break multiple times!

I compete tomorrow in my first tournament as a black belt.    Doing 6 total events:   Forms, weapons, creative forms, creative weapons, sparring and combat.    I知 doing single nunchuck for weapon and staff for creative weapon.    The creative stuff is basically just forms that I made up myself, vs prescribed ones for the traditionals.

I also won state in forms and weapons in the 2nd virtual tournament series;  going to try for overall tournament of champions in both of those in a couple weeks in the final virtual event.

I知 excited and a bit intimidated to do the black belt competitions tomorrow.   I知 a red/black belt (so 1st degree black recommended), so I知 the lowest possible black belt, many in my ring will have years more experience than I do.    We will see how it goes, onwards and upwards!

Drivetrain / Re: Intermittent clutch again

It's not super close to the headers, but it's possible it's boiling.  I've had that happen on track, but it went away after a cool down lap.  I did do a 1/2 mile pull the day before this started, but it was fine for the whole drive back, and the first drive the next day.  Wasn't until it sat for an hour that it went full retard.
