No schedule req’d

Unlike oil changes I never stick to a schedule with air filters.  Just wait until it changes color.

Need more lines

20170221_064153

Out here in the west, there’s not much use for the defroster but it’s always nice to have.   As cars age, some of  the lines on the defroster end up not working either due to deterioration, or  from damage.  So you end up with a rear window that look more like horizontal racing stripe which is barely enough to see through.  But let’s get that corrected.

Just needed to get the last nut so I can remove the exhaust manifold.  Too lazy to go under the car with  sockes and ratchet.  Half moon wrench FTW.

New year, new oil

Now that 2017 has rolled around it’s about time to take care of the annual maintenance.   Since days here in socal look like the same almost all year around, I don’t have to wait till Spring to get any work done on the silver surfer.

Back to basics

IMG_20160730_152505_327

When building the Leviathan, I never considered transplanting Barney’s power plant (turbo 4AGE) over,at least not  at the moment.  Going to the track days always felt like I was never driving it to it’s full limit, and there wasn’t anyone I can compare with driving skills wise.  And what I enjoyed about the lowly under powered 4AGE, was I can push the chassis more than the engine.  Which is why I decided to run  of the mill I had laying out back.  Unfortunately, the first time out ended abruptly, about 100 yards.  But nothing that can’t be easily fixed.  Hopefully, next time I take out Levi, I’ll find out if learned anything.

Does it get any nerdier than having different size rear sway bars for the AE86?

It’s all about appearances

It’s not too often you see an auto part packaged like a Rolex.
