Surely a propellor head amongst us could make up a box if tricks to replicate the key on, engine running data feed when triggered with 12 volts to get the A/C problem fixed for these lads??

I not such a propellor head, but I know there are some smart cookies on here...... :D

Well i felt OK today so I thought I would have a little play.
Image

As you can see motor is in and its not coming out again!!

Image

Another angle

Still a lot of wiring to be done

These are the photos of sump clearance
Image

Image

Image

As you can see there is plenty of clearance I can even get my sausage like fingers between sump and K frame.

If any one wants anymopre photos of cut sump just drop me a line. I still have my practise sump as well.

Tomorrow I might try and get interior back together or split some firewood.

Cheers

Hi

Just a couple of quick updates. Doesn't look like a lot has been done but it is all wired in now. Had a mild panic attack putting the dash back in could not find a couple of wires they were hiding under a bit of insulation and I had a bit of doubt as to whether I had done everything correctly. Thans to snap0964 and BenJ for easing my fears. Got the dash in everything lights up including the check ABS light so obviously i have disconnected something somewhere. Then on cleaning the bench i found one of the O-rings for the power steering hose I had made up another job for weekend.
So here is whats left
fit o ring to power steering
Fit new carpet
Install console and gearknob
Connect fuel lines
install radiator and thermos
Mount loom for turbo sensors
Remove bumper and fit intercooler and piping
Get air con lines made up
Hopefully thats it

A few more shots

Long weekend this weekend so hopefully should get a lot done

Todays update. I thought I would tidy up interior now all the wiring is done. A few months ago I managed to pick up some nos carpet so it was time to put it in.
Image
out come seats again.
Image
If you have a good look you can see the relay block and fuse box to run the BA motor just in front of gearstick. This will be a good place to put them nice and dry and easy to get to. Factory carpet is great to install all holea are there and it slots straight in.

Image
Almost all done to me the gearstick looks a bit hifg is this normal?
Image

A bit more work to be done on column wiring have to fit modifed Au clockspring.

Thats all folks

Cheers
