Today was not a great day, productivity-wise. Got a sick kid at home and 40 things to get done this week...hard to focus.I did pull the oil cooler and found oil pooled up underneath and the mount area very wet with fresh oil. I cleaned the oil cooler out and removed the black paint from the exterior.
I called several local radiator shops and none had any interest in pressure testing the oil cooler. The engine builder came by after a text conversation and picked up the oil cooler to test it and/or replace it. Hopefully, tomorrow will be more productive and the engine will go back together. I would like to get it in the car so I can finish up the wiring and get the suspension set properly.
I spent the better part of an hour trying to get NOS front indicator housing seals on the car in an attempt to get something accomplished today. In the end, I gave up because they'd shrunk so much that they would not go on the car.
Tomorrow, I will attempt to get the spring plate covers mounted on the car so I can install the other trailing arm and brake assembly on the right side. Once that's done, I can circle back and figure out brake lines.
The end goal is to get the car on 4 tires...I may need to adjust my approach to get there.
This car is far more frustrating than fun.
