Day 25 – First all-nighter!

Longest time spent on the car yet. I started cleaning the garage at about 4:30pm… Ian got home at 10:00pm. We continued to work on the car until about 8:00am (including a test drive) had breakfast (and midnight lunch) and put another hour in cleaning up. Ian’s passed out at the moment but I’m trying to stay up for the rest of the day – You could get so much more stuff done if you didn’t have to sleep…
Anyways, as always, here are some pictures!

Some things we didn’t get a picture of include refilling of the clutch fluid reservoir (took a while… seems to work, but the clutch isn’t disengaging the tranny…) also alot of the time was spent adjusting nuts and bolts and taking it on and off. We have to take it all apart now to figure out the clutch problem, and to get our spline hardened. Oh, and the spline had to be modified… I lengthened each spline by about a 1/4″ with a trusty dremel knockoff.
