Chased power steering leaks through all the fuckin' hoses.

First did the high pressure line, then the return started leaking. Pulled the return line (it was actually a cooler that ran out front of the bumper, so I had to hack it apart into 8 pieces to get it out and replace it with a short run of hose) and replaced it. Then the suction line from the reservoir started leaking. Pulled that today without realizing the TT and NA suction hoses are different diameters (the 90-93 TT has a larger diameter line to feed the dual circuit setup for front and rear racks), so now it's sitting in the garage slowly leaking the ATF I couldn't pump out of the reservoir with a hand pump onto the garage floor.

I'm sure once I have the new suction hose, the rack will start leaking.

Can't. I entered it in the 2017 Z convention in Austin.

Gotta hold onto it until the end of June. By then, I should have the AEM PnP ECU in and be running MOAR BEWST.

I like how a little coolant leak is considered a win. THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW YOU'RE A CAR JUNKY

It came from the bleed port when I overfilled it last night.

Replaced the hose clamps on the radiator with some constant tension clamps, no more drips.

The car's as fluid-tight as it's ever been since I owned it.

I'm kinda proud of myself right now.

Because I can't just leave well enough alone, I'm getting it ready for an AEM ECU. To start that, I ordered replacement EFI, alternator, battery, and knock sensor harnesses from Wiring Specialties.

The knock sensor hasn't worked since 2005, so I figured it was time to actually fix it.

Here we are trying to pull the knock sensor subharness without removing the lower plenum.


Here's after I conceded defeat. I pulled the lower plenum, which has a timing belt idler installed on the end. So, I clamped the timing belt to the cam gears with some left-over Maple from a different project. That single little puck between the banks is the knock sensor. We almost had it.


At the end of day 1, I've got the knock sensor, the alternator, and most of the battery harness installed. The EFI harness was removed with the help of some dykes and a bad attitude.

Can't wait to convert to MAP instead of MAF.

I'm confused. I thought your 300 was NA. Is it a TT? I'd definitely want my knock sensor in that instance.Not sure I'd care about it if it wasn't boosted.

The Z32 was never NA.

I bypassed it after the first rebuild, because 1) the stock ECU only works at knock detection up to about 2500RPM and 2) the fuckin' thing was all boned anyhow.

Now that I'm going to a standalone, it makes sense to use it.

Never a dull moment.



New harness in, lower plenum back on, timing held in place by tension instead of vise grips.


Also, my friend got his R32 back from bank (well, back from mechanic).



I vacuumed down the AC, put the engine back together, and charged the AC (after having my radiator shop check/clean/repair the evaporator core), and the car's working perfectly. No leaks, no det sensor codes, loads steadier, I'm super happy right now.

I also did the timing covers up with trim black, and powdercoated the coolant lines matte black, because owning a powdercoating setup means that I have to powdercoat everything, dontchaknow.
