So here is the Status and some of the issues that I ran into:
ENGINE BAY: the engine is running nicely now and all hoses are connected. I still have a few small clamps that need to be added to the vacuum hoses, but for the most part, the motor is done. I have some right angle battery terminals coming in today and will see what I can do to replicate the correct style battery cables (240zrubberparts cables are sold out, have not been able to contact via phone or e-mail). Not sure what I can do to re-crate terminal covers, but do have some on order that will be arriving too late. I am missing the original smog pump arm, but picked up one on ebay that should be in on Tuesday. That is about it for the engine items
The only issues I had with the motor operation were a high idle and some RPM cycling oscillations. Even with everything backed off, the idle was sitting at around 1200 RPM. Not sure why that is. I remedied the situation by extending the needles in the two flat top pistons. Idle is now at around 700 RPMs. The RPM cycling was odd and I knew it was a result of one of the vacuum systems. The engine would oscillate from 600 RPM up to 1200 RPM and then back down in a continuous cycle (That would drive anyone crazy). Plugging the hose going the the anti-backfire valve fixed the issue. Looks like I need a new valve and those are pretty pricey. For now, I will leave it plugged.
I have run the motor for over 30 minutes and temperature remains steady at a bit below 180F.
Clutch and brakes have been bled and peddles feel good.
INTERIOR: I have a few parts that were in pretty bad shape (the passenger side pull handle and one roll-up handle), so ordered new ones from Motorsport. All gauges work as well as the clock. The LED lights look nice in the dash but do not appear to be adjustable. I also put LED lights in the overhead interior light and the engine light. I am finishing up the luggage straps and should have them installed in the next day or two.
EXTERIOR: Just need to install the center bumper finisher which I painted last night and connect front turn lights. Need new lug nuts for the mags and license plate frame. Will probably pick up from Pep Boys tonight. Also, Miguel wants to do one final polish on Thursday night before we load. Can't imagine the paint looking any better, but he wants to do the final polish on the car.
That about completes the list. I will try and take the car out for outdoor pics in the next day or two. We load on Friday.
