I found my issue with the car running bad......a couple years ago I got a wire hot but didnít seem to be too bad......well, it was and it finally came back to haunt me. It was the resistor wire that fed the coil.

I had a friend tell me to run a wire directly from my battery to my 1.6 ohm resistor for the new distributor. It fired right up and ran great. So I ordered a new engine wire harness and it arrived yesterday. I will be installing it this weekend.

Meanwhile, my new clutch arrived late last week, so I started installing that on Monday.

I thought I’d better replace the pilot bushing since it was 10 years old. So, I tried using this Lisle Pilot Bushing Removal Tool but once it filled the cavity with grease, THAT WAS IT!!! I couldn’t get enough pressure on the grease gun to hydraulically push the bushing out.

I got on YouTube and found out that bread works great......not as messy as grease. So I got my input shaft alignment tool that I bought from Crash at last years MCACN show, pushed bread in the cavity and pounded away....it worked like “sliced bread”.

Here are some pictures of the new Advanced Clutch Technology (ATC) clutch kit. This pressure plate seems heavier than the McLeod and Hays. Maybe because itís SFI rated where the other two werenít.....at least I know the Hays wasnít. The fingers are bent different too......? The organic disc appears solid also.....well built.

I finished installing it yesterday evening. I came home from work today and fired it up.....rowed through the gears a little while the car was still on jack stands. Everything seemed normal but the true test will be when I get it back on the road.

On a side note, the foot pressure is a little heavier than the Hays Street/Strip I had in the car previously......but not much more.

Many people already know this, but for those who don't, if you get a new pilot bushing and a magnet sticks to it, don't use it. Many of the bushings that are being sold today have iron in them. They will wear out quickly and may damage the input shaft.

I installed the one that was in it 10 years ago.....after I removed it, I put a magnet on it and it didnít stick. He new one is a RAM pilot bushing. I checked the reviews on Summit Racing and they were all good. I put a magnet on it prior to installing it and it too was non magnetic.

Iím really excited and apprehensive at the same time...itís been since July at the Super Car Reunion that I could really drive the car as thatís when the clutch finally had enough.

I did get the new engine harness installed today after I got a little motivation (aka nap) :-) and my lawn cut.

It took a little bit due to my inexperience. I have to tidy things up when I get it back on the ground but I did try it out temporarily, without the CDI box, and it fired RIGHT up. I didnít even have to pump it first.......and it idled all on its own (no choke). Itís better than any LS......thatís for sure!

Iíll take a picture of the old wire harness tomorrow......itís bad and definitely modified.

I have a friend coming over Tuesday to help me install/wire the CDI box and make things look good........among other things........shhhhh......itís a secret.

Kurt
