IDLE ACHIEVED - YAY GASKET SEALER!
June 30, 2005
VROOM! It looks like the gasket sealer works -- I got the engine to fire up and hold an idle! There's still a few things I need to work out... like why the starter has such a difficult time cranking over. I *believe* it's because there isn't enough juice going directly to the starter motor, but I'm not positive. It might be about bad grounds, you know? I'll try to pull things apart and put them back together when I get a chance. now I just need to make sure that I bolt everything down, hook up the tranny slave cylinder, bleed the clutch and brakes, and drive around the block. good times.
