curious about your skid plates. Seems like that would be a good place to accumulate mud, water and rust. Do you intend to drill drain holes into it?

It gets emptied when you take the stuff off. That's about it.

Didn't get a pic, but I have the clutch line run and connected and bled. And it moved under it's own power for the first time with this setup.
I was fighting an unstable idle, and after looking around a bit, realised this engine metered it's idle air.
So I had to make the iac hose fit after the maf
It looks crappy but it works. Perfect, smooth, stable idle.

This thing has to be robust. when you're 8 or 10 miles up into the trails through the woods somewhere up by manastash ridge you want your shit to keep working

Totally

Last thing I want in this world is to be stuck in the backwoods with you

That being said, the craftsmanship is top notch

Finally got the radiator locked down.
I'll have to take it all back apart to slap some paint on it
Image

I had to temporarily just slap a bunch of zip ties on the vapor line so I know the length on the other end of it

Getting the p.s. Hoses setup, and cooler mounted

Snuck the p.s. hose through the cooler mount.

Try filling the fluid and see if there's any adverse effects of mounting it this way
Soon I get to start putting her face back on

I would be concerned about that rubber line riding that bracket in the pic. That will eventually eat through that line at the contact point.
Sorry Rix, looks great otherwise....that's just the Aircraft inspector in me.

Not actually touching. Bad angle.
If you look close on the first pic of that series, I put another insulated clamp through that bracket to hold it anyway.
