The whole pile was just a little too wobbly to walk away from last night. A couple of cuts, couple zaps with the very hot glue gun and voila!

Houston, we have separation - the G50 module is ready to rendezvous with Copans for a rebuild.

Thinking that driving the gearbox to OH might actually be easier than getting it to/through a shipper...

Fiat lux.

The Morimoto HIDs are high/low, so right now the high beam switch turns on both the HID highs and also LEDs in the old high beam location. A little disappointing that they don't actually set things on fire with all bulbs on, but maybe that was unrealistic.

The double high beam is overkill for most use. I've figured out how to wire things up with a couple of relays and a microcontroller to let the HID high beams run solo when you set the switch forward and latch the HIDs+LEDs on when you hold the switch back for a bit, but that'll have to wait as I need to have this thing running at the end of February in order to be painted.

G50 is on a pallet and ready to go to OH, alternator is out and ready to go to Arlington Armature along with the starter. With the alternator and fan out of the way I can see some of my oil leaks. This looks like case through bolts, yes?

^ Check the underside of the intake manifold for oil.

There is indeed oil leaking from the manifold bolts on the LH side, so apparently even when using the gauge I must have been overfilling the oil. I'd planned on pulling the manifold and replacing the vram actuator seals, etc.

So there's plenty of oil topside. If that's what we're seeing on the case I'm curious how it gets through the fan shroud.

Mission Control confirms that the G50 landed in Athens OH this morning and is on a stand now.

On the engine side, it looks like it'd be prudent to replace the fan bearing, and the old-style alternator pulley while in there. Include the cost of a new belt and that part of the job is half way to a Clewitt serpentine conversion.

I intend to drive the heck out of this car and thus will be sitting in traffic (see what I did there?) with the AC and stereo on. Maybe Clewitt isn't the best idea?!

Ed,
Good to hear that the gearbox is with Brian - prudent choice.

I installed a Clewett setup on my 993 almost 4 years ago. Absolutely zero regrets or issues. Since then I’ve installed, or helped install, four other Clewett setups for other 993 owners. It’s simple, and it works.
