All i can say is let it snow let it snow let it snow it seems winter is never going to end and even though in about a week i will be opening the garage i will need to wait for the snow melt to get the car out but it keeps snowing
Well if the snow melts soon i will drage th car over to th new shop . I am opening up on tuesday April Fools day i just hope i am not the fool but i think it will be allright but it will just take some time .
Ok finaly i am going to get back to working on this since i am closed on monday and dont have any work to catchup on so i can bring it into the shop tomorrow. my plan is to work on getting the cooling system hooked up and the clutch hooked up and work on the wiring i think i can get most of it done if not all done then all i need to finnish is axle spacers and exhaust and i dont have the money for that but i will still be able to start the engine .

I have gone about as far as i can go with out spending more money but right now that is not a option due to the cost of opening a new shop but it is well worth it i realy like working on cars ! thought i would post a pic of my old jet boat it had a destroked 400 sbc down to 377 it had a B&M Mega Blower it made 600 + HP
gona work o the car monday check out sme wiring things i would like to try starting it but i am not sure what the trigger tooth angle needs to be set at on the measquirt 2 and i need to pull the engine one last tim to check that and put a new serpintine belt tenstioner on but dont have yet . i feel that soon i will have the money to finish as the new shop comes to life things seem to keep geting better every week more and more customers are coming in so i hope to have video soon of it running
hi I have worked on the car I've got the shifter and I'm still a little bit leery on spending money but my business is picking up so I would expect that I will be putting things together soon also found out that I can put Linux on my android which will allow me to run ms studio then I will be able to tune with my smart phone

I don't dare to spend to much money right now so I have been working on the axles it seems the axle from a 2000 Passat right front is the right length for the left side so for the right side I will cut and sleeve and weld a axle for the right side and I am going to order a new clutch slave so got to go and order that up
I worked on seeing how long an axle I needed for the right side by cutting an old axle in half then taking some angle iron to lengthen it and it ended up as a 24 1/2 axle compressed so a stock 2000 Passat right front axle should work . I heard from the owner of the building Wally that he had some one from Grafton tell him about me building this car he thought his name was Ryan so if you come by Ryan I would love to see your Fiero and show you what is going on with mine and maybe you can give me some ideas . if the clutch slave came in today then I will put that on unless I get some customers tomorrow
I have the clutch hooked up and working and freed up the belt tensioner so that is working and found the right belt length I just need a good alternator . I have some good news and that is the State is finally coming to test me so I can get my inspection license so I can inspect cars and trucks this is a big deal as it isn't just the money from the inspection but if the car or truck needs repair they usually have you do it this alone should more than double my work
I have a friend trying to put Ubuntu on my tablet for me then I will put wine on it so I can run any windows program this is going to be nice for doing many thing even tuning the engine I also use it for some live diagnostics on cars with the torque pro program
I need to get the alternator and MS tuner studio pro so I can get the crank trigger in sync then I could at least start it even though I don't have it all done. I will try to get some pics of what I have done and post them tomorrow is a day off sort of so i will bring the camera to the shop and snap a few pics
haven't worked on the car due to not having the money for it but i have taken an old project out and worked on it it is the turbohydromtic 425 with a flipped thm325 differential i have pulled the thm 425 apart and put in a new output shaft that fit the 325 diff and found a few hang ups but i see how to fix them and within the next year i should be able to have a strong automatic transmission that puts the weight in front of the rear axle and can take big V8 power
thought i would post a few new pics showing the new boxster shifter and axle angle i am planing on working on what ever i can tomorrow that cost nothing and 1 pic of the thm 425 with the new output shaft that needs a few mods
I just ordered i Alternator for this things are coming along slow but i am moving ahead just not as fast as i would like but at least i am making progress i need to get MS Tunnerstudieo working with Linux Mint then i need to upgrade to pro . i still need a 88 oil pressure switch and i need to make the knock sensor circuit and build an exhaust plus a right hand axle and braces on the engine cradle
well I have a good alternator now but I have had to much going on so far this week to work on it but that is a good thing since it means the shop is starting to get going and the key was getting the state inspection station license this next Monday I am planning on working on it .
I worked on the car today and i just need the Exhaust , O2 sensor , throttle cable , coolant temp gauge sender , Knock sensor .right axle , speedometer & Brakes . My Friend showed me how to use Tuner stodio on Linux Mint
Yes Will it is good info to know so i am going to double check by counting the teeth backward from tdc to tooth #1 it is a 60 tooth wheel minus 2 teeth so each tooth is 6 degrees so it should be 11 teeth back to the missing teeth
