It is good to see the children opening up their minds to other possibilities.
They will grow stronger from the experience......

23 May: remove two fronts seats, front and rear carpet. Floor has three rust repairs that are brazed.

Removed front and rear trim/door cards. Handles held on via spring clips that the FiL gave me the remover for- not sure how you would get these off otherwise. Quite evident the original colour was Sebring orange.







Greased window winders and they seem to free-up nicely. Top of the doors only comes off after windows have been removed- doh!

24 May: remove gearbox and clutch slave cylinder. Cleaned slave cylinder up so it works and now looks like new. Major bummer- left it for a few days and the thing leaks.



Here you can see the slave to bell housing bracket. Clearances are tight with the headers. Not really sure what the bolt toward the top is doing. I think it might be a little long and the PO just has not changed it for the correct length OR the car is missing something.





Note of work done to gearbox from PO: รขโ‚ฌล“I had pulled it down as 2nd gear synchro was causing problems. That I believe was in 88/89 Bearings and synchro were replaced.รขโ‚ฌย

Good to learn as the kit for the gearbox is around $500.

In the week following: order and received the HT supplement, FiL gave me the HK manual, ordered and received the Max Elery HK/T manual. The FiL had a few other spares that he keeps 'just in case' (just in case the car he sold 30 years ago breaks down in his drive or something while towing the caravan he sold 40 years ago) like four boxes of brake cylinder seals, and seam chalking.

Removed boot liner, fuel tank side plates that cover the tank:



To reveal five golf balls and a golf tee. This is the rare golfing option fitted to this car:





Scraped off dirt and grime from rear inner guards. Vacuumed rubbish and dirt out of interior. Jackson (the small version not some other reference to me in the third person) fits nicely in the boot and gave me a hand to unscrew bits and hold things.

With the rest of the gear changing bits out, I disconnected the clutch pedal from the shaft and removed the clutch master cylinder from the firewall.






The thing is a bit rusty



A closer look revealed a few years of gunk and sludge- not standard lubrication





Real time for a moment-
Holly shit- that huntsman that was under the car from last week's posting (and a few months ago) is now- I kid you not- sitting on the window watching me. These things must have an incredible memory and vengeance! Fear not, H threw a pot at it (she dry-reached when she saw it) and it is all good. Can't say the same for the window. Back to the past...




This was an indication that a simple kero bath and new seal were unlikely to be enough to get it going again. I think a re-sleeve is in order and dropped it off to the place in Queanbeyan.

Hi Shaun
Fairdinkum, is there nothing you blokes do not notice? You are correct.

The re-sleeving place offered me up the correct bottle (same screw in base) but it was missing a screw cap. I politely declined as I thought it would be a bugger getting a lid (or it would cost some ungodly amount). Decided to stay with how it has been for a while. I have noticed the bottles tend to perish over time.

Leave the huntsman alone you bully, plus they eat redbacks and white tips. Easy to catch and relocate. Glass and piece of paper.

I do use the chinese container and cardboard to catch them if they venture inside. BUT, they still creep me out.
White tails cop the 'shoe' treatment no question. Red backs, well the grandson likes it when we tease them out from their webs (again not for relaying to H)
