I just noticed a oil leak under my car, and it appears to be coming from this. The car got converted to manual today, and im thinking this is the old auto trans cooler lines? can someone confirm, as i don't want to drive the manual if its leaking oil..

What happened to the clutch fork cover boot? - He has left that off as well!

The cable runs along the top of the steering rack. There is a small holding clip that screws to the top of the rack.

Runs there, factory cars have a steel clip that's attached to the k-frame, just above the steering rack.

I don't see a problem with the zip ties.

I'd straighten out the nipple on the clutch fork too.
