I am playing the waiting game again...
So not much progress as of yet.
I am waiting on a 2004 sti shortblock to come in the mail (25k miles on it). The old bare block was pretty much completely shit on! Head stud threads were destroyed and helicoils and timeserts failed. So need a new bareblock to start again with.
I am then going to swap out all the parts from the old block to the new one. Then ill be good to go.
When I start the rebuild, ill post a ton of pics, dont worry...
Your car looks great good job. But I noticed when you were assembling the rotating assembly you put assembly lube on the main BEFORE the bearings. The assembly lube does not go there there is no moving part there, that can cause a spun bearing, One of the guys I worked with at a benz dealer did that and caused a spun bearing at start up. The assembly lube goes on the bearing surface that contacts the crank not the block. Hopefully you havent put your new block together yet. good luck I am thinkin to use the sohc heads on my build too
Got the oil pump, water pump, oil tube, oil pan, oil cooler, thermostat, and a little more done.
Actually broke this small fitting the connects my oil supply to my oil feed line and to the oil pressure sensor.
Does anyone know the proper name for this part? Going to look on summit and hope to get lucky.
I know it is a t-fitting, but not surewhere to get it from.
