yeah all is the same before I taken it apart, I don't remember the clutch acting this way and I can feel the pressure plate and such. When I get the new clutch I might flush and re-bleed.

Assume you still have the hydraulic slave set up?  Make sure it's bled properly and has good fluid level

So I have been tolerating an issue since driving around I don't recall the clutching acting strange. It feels like I have pressure, good pressure, but the problem is I can feel it with the pressure plate but it will not engage the clutch till I touch the floor and I don't recall that happening. When shifting from 1st to 2nd it would be extremely hard to shift, and to third would be a bit better but still it requires the foot to the ground with the high pressure already it makes it really tough.

so I am going to replace it with an OEM Exeddy, and remove the XTC ebay crap.

Got some parts in last week.

just one more part for this stuff to get, but just getting a coupler to make sure I get the right size for the rack, this one (part in the bag) is to big so have the other one that it might be the right one on the way and once that gets here, if it is the right one I will return them and get the part I really need....


made the part I needed for the steering shaft to be welded in



new lower mounts for the coil overs came also


they are taller which is fine since I was kinda bummed with the S13 that I wouldn't have been able to go 4X4 stance at all





just need to make my tension rod bracket spacers to take care of the angle on the tension rod other then that, it's starting to look not to bad of angles


Also got started on this, have them all assigned to their seat, have some 400 grit on the way so when that gets here have another night of fire starting

 

pix before I do the last row





have some clean up to do from when the valve guides were done and the 400 grit on the seats then a run though the dish washer and put them together so I can figure out what buckets I need to order and the heads will be ready.

Nice to see a clean repair vs spaghetti wires & smoke everywhere!

I ordered two more adapter harnesses. One was the female version and the other one was the male version. Looking at the schematic the black connector that goes into the equalizer/amp has mainly all the speaker wires and then one power wire. The radio connector mainly had the power and amp turn on wires in it on my version. So I took the female connector and cut it so I could use it to hold the pins into the black connector. The black connector is a 12 pin and the female white connector is a 10 pin.



Then I put back in all the pins and matched them up with the correct speaker outputs. I taped it to the black connector so it would not fall out because it does not have a clip to hold it in place.



From this cut connector I ran the 4 speaker wires into the white 10 pin that is part of my car harness and then I rand the other 4 into the 6 pin connector that comes with the jumper kit. The all I had to do is plug in my jumper that I soldered to my new radio harness. Everything works perfect now.



I still can't believe someone else did not run into this problem. Also I search through 3 harness manufacturers and they all show only the white 10 pin and the white 6 pin connectors for all the cars in the 80s. So I might have a goofball harness or they just did not worry about making one because the demand was not there. I don't know. But it works and all is good.
Later I will be putting new speakers in and running everything off separate amps. But for now I needed some music. Actually the stock speakers sound real good with the new deck.

I'll ask my wife to redraw the decal in a vector format so that it can be printed. She can do that, she's cool.

I can also reproduce any of these graphics in vector format for future reference.  I just need a clean picture taken strait on (not at an angle) with a ruler or tape measurer included to accurately reference the size.

Finally did the rear shocks with a matching set of Gabriels. I hadn't realized how worn the OEM rear shocks had become but she sure feels planted now. My kingdom for stiffer springs!
