Best I make the drive from Canberra, it looked good the last time I saw Q in the flesh and it was only the painted shell.

Also meant to say. Make sure you have the service replacement oil dip stick in there. or you will be short on oil. Mine was a little ratley till I put 6.5 liters in it. 5.5 liters is not enough. I remarked my original.


Yes that is already done ... keep the thinking cap on though & keep the thoughts coming ..... Poke

If you haven't already got the Z bar in. hook the return spring under the booster first. Can be a pain to hook it in after. I take it you have already bled the brakes before the engine went in?? Wish I had of!! would have been easier to fix the leak in the dist block!!! Fan on before Radiator goes in as well as shroud. Silly things I know. Wish I had of known though, as a first time C/Jet installer!!
Don't know what clutch you are using?? But I put an 11" centerforce in mine. Some people remove the return spring on the pedal for a lighter clutch, but I just left mine on as you probably will.
Tip for Lee, If you ever have to pull the spark plugs, Save yourself a headache, and just remove the rocker covers first. Makes the center 2 easy to get at. Not sure how that will go with smog equip, but you will waste hrs trying to get them out. another thing I wish I'd been told!!

Inching ever so slowly towards completion......



Shift linkages were all bent & took days to get them right. Thought I had them right, but when the box was in the car the top one hit the floor, so out it came again ..... Ranting

Once this mechanical side is done, then it is back to what I know best, fitting up body & the last little pieces.

Who the hell graffitied on the bottom of the gearbox!

Alternatively, if you would like a bit more 'street art' on the uderside I know a few kids who would be more than willing to help. ;-)

Hi jack Embarrassed Kerry, the unpainted circles on the rails where where it sat on the factory mounts on the line. I can see them clearly on my car, and they are still mostly gal. Do you just leave them or do you paint them with something, Qs stand out more than mine, Was going to mask them and paint the red, but wouldn't mind making them stand out some more ?.

Spray them with zinc paint first (for a driver), then I cut out some masking dots the same size & use that to mask off the red oxide.

1 each side on the front of the rails, again on the front rail extensions, then beside the rear torque boxes & the last 2 near the rear spring hangers.

The only ones that are surface rusty are the 2 front ones I think, I was thinking of carefully scotch briting the rest

Scotch brite works well, esp the disks on the sander. I would still zinc them as you will be driving & if you are anything like me, hardly likely to clean underneath (other than a pressure wash every couple of years) anyway.
