So your clutch switch is really no different than a door jam switch on the car now? Do you need a switch or just a ground shut off? That thing will work great as a ground shut off.

I probably missed this in an earlier post, but what are you using the clutch switch for?


That switch is a pretty low quality door switch, a better switch will be here tomorrow. Its supposed to be M8 and should thread into the existing tab on the pedal box. I can set it up to work to ground or to power, that's just flipping the setup in the ECU.

The idea with a clutch switch was to eventually let me do a launch control of some kind as well telling the ECU not to trust the RMP/wheel speed ratio to determine gear selection as the clutch is likely slipping. It was the gear selection I was mostly thinking about when I decide to mount the clutch switch next to the brake switch so touch the pedal, trigger the switch....but that might not be all that helpful for launch control.....hmmmmm

parts for the second window relays came so that all done now. I used the brand of relay I used for the ECU so its a little clear they are not stock. I ended up removing about 10 feet of power wire per window this way. 2 new 16g grounds off the relays, as I said before still fuse power from the original source so the window fuses are still the window fuses (but in an upgraded fuss panel)

the switch is cuter in person. The new $6.89 with shipping glass I ordered for the tach came too and looks fine, just need the transfers now.

Called the shop yesterday, they promised to call me back later...so yeah, its time for me to call again today .  I'm feeling this is the week it needs to come home.

Also thinking about maybe switching to non-water based coolant such as Evans coolant.  I think a lot of my surface corrosion where coolant spilled was probably related to soot from the fire which should now be resolved, but it got me thinking about leaks and rust pitted cylinders and maybe now that everything is drained I should blow it all out and switch to coolant that really can't ever corrode anything ever again.  I've use similar products in industrial applications but never used it in a car....this might be the time though.

So a few weeks ago after I called 6 or 10 times and finally got an answer I was told the loud ringer was broken in the shop was broken but they were about to call me back. Monday I called and got no answer but they called back a few minutes later, Pauly wasn't in yet but he'd call me later in the day.....I called Tuesday-no answer of call back, just called now.....and I guess I'll call every hour or so......its time this gets done.


Edit: got him this time "he never called you? he's weld but I'm writing it down and he will call you back when he's done."

Now I know that no call back means he had nothing to tell me but thought he's get to it later so better to wait, I've had that experience many times over the years.....it means that after what 3 months? waiting I'll be honing it myself this weekend.

Got a call tonight so its official....they can't hone it. I'll pick everything up tomorrow or Friday. About 5 or 6 thou per cylinder needs to come out....an hour or 2 each I guess so maybe done this weekend but most likely it pushed through next weekend.

How are you going to chuck the sleeves to hone them?

They will have it at the door for me at 8am tomorrow to grab on my way to the office.....we try to keep covid opportunities to a minimum.

I think I can hand hone it with the cylinders in place.....I'll know friday for sure. If not I'll make something to support the thin spigot end and hone them on the bench. One way or the other they are getting honed and the engine is going back together.
