I have the same harbor freight aluminum jack. That momo steering wheel looks greatQuick little update as I did some more work while putting off starting the power steering.
First off I finally fixed (somewhat) all the oil leaks!! It took a couple of trips to ace hardware and re-tapping the threads (albeit without an actual tapper ) but the last oil leak is finally much more manageable. This pic is after driving around 100 miles round trip to the car meet up in Ferndale:View attachment 665229
As you can see there isn't any oil coming out of the threads anymore, however now the gasket is pretty wet and the oil pan was a little damp with oil so now I think it's coming from the mating surfaces. At this point I'll take what I can get as this is probably the best it can be without dropping the pan and figuring out a permanent solution. It only leaks while the car is on and oil is actively flowing through the pipe so I'll take it.
Besides that I put on a quick release as the airbag was already deleted anyway. I loved that I was able to maintain the MOMO wheel as it's very period correct IMO and I think it looks awesomeView attachment 665230View attachment 665231View attachment 665233
Here's a photo someone took at the meetView attachment 665234
The car drove amazing there and back, AFR's stayed around 13/14/15 and there was no major fluctuations in the oil pressure. I can't wait to get it tuned so I can really romp on it. Besides that I got some more goodies in the post in the form of a Forge Motorsport non-recirculating BOV and my braided brake lines for the upcoming brake refreshView attachment 665235
I know the stock BOV is perfectly fine I just wanted one that didn't sound like a sneeze
Other than that I also plan to ditch the electronic boost controller and go to a manual one as the electronic one is disconnected right now anyway. If anyone has any info on how that works with a DSMLink V3 ECU it would be greatly appreciated.
