i might have been a bit too eager tonight with the zed i thought id go weld my exhaust up at around 6:30pm i had to finish mounting my vice to the make shift work station and then hack up the new old exhaust to re use the flange for my original zorst so it would fit again. I was quite suprised i just bolted up my rear exhaust mount and line up my exhaust besides the headers and marked it, cut it down to size,refitted the exhaust and tack the flange in place and it was spot on angle and all couldnt believe it! im not 100% happy with my welds but this would have to be the first exhaust system ive made/changed that wasnt a total stuff around.

i would have of liked to done better but its not too back considering i only had a little 180amp Lincoln electric welder i borrowed off a mate( it a fantastic little unit!) running 0.8 gasless wire. eventually a new zorst will be on the cards but this will keep her happy for now :)

after all that i glanced at my phone after taking some pictures and it was near on 7:45pm having tidied up i then spent the remaining hours working out approx wire lengths and layout andextra switch position for when i do my led ligh up grade for my gauges and just general plotting around. nothing beats the single life and being able to spend the whole night in the shed with out being annoyed or getting in trouble over. :D

i even cut and shut my throttle linkage so it now fits all be it but the plastic gomet that centralises the linkage off the carbies to the fire wall somewhere over the course of the engine saw ive miss placed it. im thinking it should be an easy fix to make one up.

all im waiting on now is the coolant outlet which is about a week or so away and then i can finally fire the old girl up again!

Nice work on the exhaust - welds look good to me, I'd say e garage wall says loads about your current lifestyle. If I had those pictures on the wall my g/f would be questioning me "am I not good enough for you!" haha.

I've definitely paid for worse welds from an "exhaust shop".

After asking for some help here on the forums and some wire checking it was indeed was the dizzy or rather the ignition module. so after swapping my old one over to the L28 i reconnected my wires as per originally connected primed the carbies and first turn she fired, was a bit rough ill admit but after cleaning a few plugs and checking leads it was running a shite load better. i tell you now even untuned the sound of hr running was music to my ears :D and i may or may not have needed to clean up afterwards HAHA.

so after the initial start up i backed or rather limped her out of the shed as ive still got to bleed the clutch and the poor girl got her first wash in nearly 4 months

Which prompted me to was the daily and my mate also decied to wash his chaser.

Not much of an update but its an update none the less, i still havent got the poor girl running/tuned so while i waited to save the coin i needed i had to delay the tuning for her again being out of a job for just a few months but i had more pressing matters with saving up some coin to get a 200K service done on my daily. Id do it myself but i dont have much time to do that lately.

but in the mean time i have started my LED light upgrade for my dash. and agood time to chase up mystery wires and also wire in my hazzard light switch also.
Posted Image
I needed a decent work space so i moved my operations in to our entertainment room and use my beer pong table.
Posted Image
Posted Image
Now the new LED bulbs fit but the housing/clip needs some modding to make it all fit together, this is what i started with.
Posted Image
And this i what i ended up with, it looks like ive cut too much off but i couldn't push the bulb into the socket properly so it had to be done, i plan to use alittle bit of hot glue to hold the bulb in the rear of the gauge properly.
Posted Image

so hopefully it should all be done sometime thru the week and it will work, fingers crossed!

i went with green Zedman even though ive got the green lens cap on the gauge. had thought white but im trying to keep it some what period correct. my last plan of LED stripping didnt work as the remote to select the colours was stuffed but for 20 bucks i wasnt expecting much. im hoping ill have it shorted by friday night so ill chuck some pics up then

Well!! i put my dash back in and ive got light!!!! well sorta i have one gauge constantly on my speedo lights up and the rest dont, and also had smoke coming from the amps gauge so i think ill make a shite auto leccky hahah

at this stage ill swap the bulbs back over to the standard items and if its still not working ill upgrade the gauges them selves, either way im a little pissed of but on the plus side i dont drive at night in the old girl so as tlong as the gauges sorta work it will do for now :P

Posted 24 March 2014 - 09:09 PM

well the time has come!!!  :o so grab a beer or bourbon and sit down for a bit of a read ;)
Posted Image

shes off to get the triples sorted and tuned finally. im abit pissed off that something as simple as a tune has taken me so long to get sorted and done. but before i even though of getting her into town i had to help my mate and build his car trailer ramps which was only fair as i need his trailer to begin with. that was tuesday last week. come saturday after work i re bled the clutch not being happy with the way it felt. that was sorted in no time with another mate lending a hand....

Then what happend next i didnt expect. i turned the key on and no dash lights and some of the gauges werent working( no big issue really as i want to replace them wirh newer ones)but i had no head lights indicators or brake lights. so for the third time the dash came out and the dash wiring inspected as well as the loom under the dash and a multi metre was poked and prodded to double check all seemed fine. with the dash back in it appeared now we had majority of the dash lights and cluster lights for high beam and all that. upon closer inspection we found the plugs to the steering coloum were loose and the ignition barrel was in upside down  :-[

after fixing that we had both head lights and brake lights working and indicators when they wanted to work  :-\  every thing seemed to be all perfect till i noticed the bushes on my shifter are a bit past her used date so i might replace her with a solid nylon piece to eliminate play. i also noticed that it seems to be missing bushes either side of where the gearstick bolts up to the selctor but i can all sort that when she drive able and work out the best combo that suits me.

after finishing up saturday arvo i get a call from my mate with the car trailer, it appears the axles have been spinning on top of the leaf springs cause the flat plates werent welded to the axles.... so you can guess how i spent my sunday morning :( but in the end we got her fixed and sorted and the Zed was on the trailer in no time.

This picture i took here
Posted Image
is the second time and last time i will ever see my Zed on a car trailer  ;D

they only benifit with the zed away was i got to sort out and clean up the brothel i call my shed hahaha
Posted Image
doesnt look clean but its a shite load better than it was.

so hopefully ill have a fully fuctioning and driveable Zed in a few weeks tops!! but im feeling a little unsure and lost while shes away now i guess this is how parents feel when there kids are away lol

Thanks for listening to my ramblings guys
Cheers
Matty
