So we left off with WeeYums worklog, and re-wiring from ZX2Fast.
Alignment still had not been done for 3-4 years, you had to hold the steering wheel to the right (about 70 degrees) in order to drive straight. If I let go the car will shoot to the left. Any tire that is put on the front is almost immediatly chewed up from the negative camber and major toe-out from the drivers front tire. How someone can enjoy this for 4 years is beyond me. So I will dremmel the top holes of the bottom strut bracket so I can at least pull on the tire to get positive camber out of it, to make it close to 0 degrees. Slightly negative would be ideal. I am aware that the mx-3 lower arms are 1/2" longer, so the wheels will end up sticking out 1/2" more then normal. Fender flaring may be neccessary. Then the toe will be adjusted after the camber is fixed. I will not worry about getting it perfect just yet, I will get a manual rack to throw in there then I will perfect it.
The engine idles high, and seems to overheat based off the hellish blast of invisible flame coming out the vents from the heater core when I turn the heat on to try and help cool the engine down. The temp gauge doesn't work but I'll get to instrument cluster problems later. I see a vacuum line going to a bolt where it should go into a vacuum chamber shared by the VRIS solenoids, I see another vacuum line sticking out with nothing attached to it under the throttle body, so far I can't seem to find where that goes, but it needs to be closed off for now. Fuel pump seems to overwork itself and randomly shut off, I may upgrade the pump to something that would be overkill and handle the fuel load with ease. And I don't know why (money problems maybe?) someone couldn't try a different radiator to use other then reversing the zx2 one around. I'm surprised the u-bend hose on the passenger side isn't melting the bumper. I will go through a bunch of radiators (pictures for now) that I feel are worth trying that would better fit in the current spot and not look as ghetto as it is now.
Neons, really? Are we 16? No we are not, thats going in the garbage. I also see a bunch of disconnected wires, thats all going in the trash as well.
Those will be my current goals this year. There are still more problems with the car that I will tackle next year. Right now my focus is getting my '82 GS1100 perfect.
