    Prior to that I soaked everything in wd40.

    The cable from the outside door handle has so much friction it will hardly retract at all, so for now it needs a helping hand...

    filling the valley

    Hi all, after spending a few months building a new bathroom in our house, I'm finallly at the end of that project, and restoration will commence.



    The valley of my engine is empty, and after some cleaning, I'm ready to start rebuilding it.

    In what order do I re-assemble things?

    -waterpump
    -coolant plumbing
    -intake
    -injectors
    -fuel distributor
    -fuel lines
    -throttle body
    -air metering assembly
    -throttle linkage
    -spark plugs
    -plug wires
    -distributor
    -clutch slave
    -engine wiring harness

    that's just me randomly listing the things that come to mind (and what I have spares for ).

    Any suggestions for an optimized list for order of assembly?

    Hi,

    Just started, one caliper rebuilt so far.

    Popped the pistons with compressed air.

    Otherwise smooth sailing

    I got the brakes and clutch working, so now I'm eager to get it running.

    The car has not run in over 20 years, but the PO claimed it spun easily on the starter.

    Should I put atf in the cylinders, to ease things up a little? Or just turn it over dry?
