I'm looking to replace my current carb linkage as the arms tend to slip on the round cross tube.

so out of the two options below, what is the working opinion on a better choice?

Option 1

Option 2

thanks for your feedback

also can someone point me in the right direction on finding this cover..

If any option ever says "Tangerine Racing" and you can afford it, that is the thing to get. Doesn't matter what the other option is, if there's a Tangerine version GET IT.

There is no cover for the round hole. There is a cover below the steering rack and brake master cylinder and such, but no separate cover for the round hole. The cover under the steering rack is sometimes called a "gravel guard", and sometimes a "steering rack cover". And sometimes other labels, especially if it has gotten tweaked and you are trying to thread the fourth bolt in... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

nice.. I do have the gravel cover and only noticed that hole when I removed it to replace the bushing.

and thanks on the Tangerine Racing suggestion, it is so cool to have so many great community members who are also vendors (IMG:style_emoticons/default/pray.gif) ... I'll be ordering my Tangerine Racing linkage this week

again thanks Dave (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Couple of weeks off over the holidays and making progress. The car did not have it's jacking points so we are replacing them and making the back plate from scratch.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271725.1.jpg)

Also pulled the fuel tank today so we could fix some issues with the air box and wipers, but in doing this I found this problem. the PO told me he had the tank coated and it seem to not have taken.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to deal with this?

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271725.3.jpg)

pic under the tank and we have some real cleaning to do here..

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271725.4.jpg)

also had to weld up some holes in the rear tail light area that should not have been there from a "porsche" reflector plate.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271726.6.jpg)

Also removed the back glass and found things to be in great shape

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271726.7.jpg)

also for anyone who does not know how to remove the hooks above the shoulder belt point, here is a pic... I had no clue and it took me a while to figure this puzzle out

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/i219.photobucket.com-19045-1451271726.8.jpg)

Tomorrow I'm starting on removing the front windshield and getting it ready for new glass. along with finishing the new carpet and speaker mounts

Nice car and great story! You will be (IMG:style_emoticons/default/driving.gif) before you know it!

One suggestion...replace those sections of carpet that the fuel tank sits on with something that won't hold water. Any type of moisture will be absorbed by that carpet and cause rust. I used polyethelene pipe wrap for mine.

For the fuel tank, take it to a radiator shop & have it cleaned & re-sealed. Replace fuel sock in the tank and fiber washers on the tank connectors.

I don't mean to add too much to your to-do list, but I'd also recommend stainless steel fuel lines that run from the tank to the engine bay "while youre in there." These are available at Tangerine racing as well.

3 long days and we have jack posts installed.. this was a real challenge for me because I was missing both plates along with the recessed back plate and it had to be fabricated.

few pics below

Hi! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/bye1.gif)

Regarding the Volvo 240 calipers--oops--just saw that you went to PMB for OEM brakes (good choice). As far as that master cylinder is concerned, it doesn't look like a Volvo 240 part (stock 240 master cylinder has a 22 mm bore--considerably larger than the 17mm or 19mm usually used on our cars). Some of the Volvo guys use a 24mm MC from a 94 Mustang GT--maybe it's one of those?

Hope this helps!

I ended up removing it and confirming it was a 19mm, so I'm all good there, really at this point the big question is what do I do with my fuel tank, I was able to confirm with the OP that it is a POR-15 coating.

I did talk with POR-15 their answer was to use an aircraft stripping and then re-coat with another POR-15 kit. After seeing this I'm not sure I want to do that again..

anyone have any feelings/thoughts on using a coating on the tank?

found this company (My Webpage) just around the corner from my home and they are cleaning the tank now for $200-$250 depending on how many times they need to dip it and inspect it.

they also offer a re-coating option ($450 and this would include the removal also) with this product (My Webpage), so this where I'm on the fence again as to if I should or should not. Personally I'm thinking that I'm not going to get it re-coated, but I figured I throw it out here for some community feedback.

So we are heading down the the Richmond Transmission class with DrEvil and decided to pull the engine and not just the transmission. I figured we could clean up the engine area and get to a few items that need attention.

Well the engine is out and the transmission is ready for Richmond, one of the things I wanted to look at was the oil cooler because this summer was hotter than normal and the engine was running warmer than it did last year.

I removed the tins and look at what I found.. no cooling flaps to include all the needed parts to complete this cooling process.

Question now is do I really need it (I feel I do) but I wanted to get the opinion of the community before I start looking for a few hundred dollars worth of parts because I'm going to need it all.

Yes, you need them. Find whomever built the motor and slap them for omitting the flaps.

While your in there you may want to replace the seal on the oil cooler. I noticed that 914rubber is supplying those now.

well the odometer is finally fixed and I have replaced all the lens with glass for PP. It's a good winter project. The red circle is the gear that was slipping and following the links on fixing this is good to go now..
