i just wanted to start a thread to see what you guys do day to day on your cars.

i'll start,

about a month ago, i pulled my engine and trans to put in a new clutch. had the flywheel lightened and resurfaced. but what i didnt know is that i had to shim the little ball that the clutch arm rides on, after a resurfacing. so guess what i did today?

yup, pulled the trans and put an extra washer under the ball. you have to goop up both washers to get it to seal because the threaded hole goes all the way thru to the inside of the trans. i also replaced the plastic cup that the ball rides in. the throwout bearing and its little plastic blocks were fine so i buttoned every thing back up. 5 hours total. i think this has been the cheapest repair yet on my car. $2.75 for the little plastic cup.

what did you do to your 914 today?

I put a new fan belt on my 3.2. What a suck fest. No way to get both hands near the pulley. When I was done my arms felt like Stretch Armstrong.

yesterday I put my original leather steering wheel out of the car and replaced it with a newly leather covered one on a 30 mm longer hub (that gives me more leg space; I'm 6 ft 3")

today I will put out the "very custom" permatune installation out of the car and replace it with the original and newly rebuilt Bosch HKZ

after this I will set the car in hibernation mode (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I drove it to Costco, and back. Usually a 15 minute drive turned into 90 minutes. The long way home. No repairs. No break down. All back roads and no traffic. I did once worry I should be doing something else, but I got over that. Maybe tomorrow I will actually repair something.

I put the bumperetts back on the front and began removing the fuel system for cleaning.

Started it, wamred it up, turned it off. Then wished I had more time to fix the brakes.

Dumped half the res. of brake fluid on the floor of the carport for no apparent reason. Right off the master cylinder. Figure its the stupid hard lines from the res. They were a !@#!@ to get in.....or was it just me?

Would you mind starting a thread with pics on this one? I have a stable energies bolt in cage that I have an idea how it goes in, but would like to see others' solutions.

Sorry to hijack, back to the topic... I went to the shop and wished my baby a merry Xmas, hopefully Santa will bring some tools (a welder) so I can start spending some quality time again...

Finished welding a few touchups on the rear floor pan top-side..

Welded in the Tangerine racing rear inner suspension ear reinforcements.. Then ground the welds and rattle-can primer.

Then started taking apart one of the trailing arms.. got the calliper, rotor, shock/spring, dust shield off. Then started looking on here for an easier way to get the hub and bearing out.

Next I have to deep fry a turkey for about 8-10 people tonight.

Oh.. and it snowed a bit.... not enough to break out my snowboard, but its starting to feel like Christmas
