Interesting... why did you take out the windshield washer?

Going for a nice and clean engine bay look? Like some of those custom rides.

Yeah, but I don't want to take it that far. The passenger side is about done. I will probably move the clutch fluid reservoir lower so it's less visible. I might get a cai and a smaller/lighter battery...


Sorry about the mess, I really need to clean it out sometime. signs16.gif

[Edit]


Car jumped timing. It looked like this for quite awhile.


I got another head for $60 with warranty, pulled it off a '97 1.8 Tib. The valves are still good. It really needs cleaned.


Hot tanked and resurfaced.




Had to rebuild the lifters. Then installed.


I used Felpro Head gasket and head bolts. Car has been running great for several months now with no problems.

Installed the cylinder head, torqued head bolts, lined up the timing marks, installed timing belt, rechecked timing 37 times, installed everything else, added coolant...

Put key in ignition [drumroll] turned key...

Car turns over but doesn't start. F*@&
It's dark outside now, so I will mess with it more in the morning.

Did you give it a chance to establish fuel pressure? Good job getting it put together, otherwise.

Yes I put the key in the on position for a couple minutes so the fuel would pressurize.

I got the car to start, but it runs rough. The head gasket leaks very badly. There's white smoke coming from the tailpipe, it leaks from the side of the motor too.

School starts tomorrow, and it's 25 miles away sad.gif

Ack! Head gaskets can definitely be a pain, and you *REALLY* have to make sure you torque the head down just right. Hope you can get it sorted.
