I got the other g52b all rebuilt. I used a caravan intake manifold i scored for like 60 bux on ebay, put the carb on that the car came with, and popped in a points style distributor. All top notch parts
After pulling out the engine, I figured now is a good time to replace the clutch, for insurance.
I had South Bend Clutch https://www.southbendclutch.com/ make me a new beefed up disk with a hub from an eclipse and a 8.5" friction surface. I went full face copper on the flywheel side and composite on the pressure plate side. The pressure plate was rebuilt to 1070lbs with a new friction surface.
After getting that all buttoned up, I slid the new motor in.
Also, I only had one working brake. So I replaced the master cylinder and fully bled the system out. There was some nasty stuff that came out of those lines. The rear reservoir of the master cylinder had like a muddy goo in it. I believe that was due to not having an o-ring on the cap. But, now shes got fully functioning brakes. Now I'm getting the wiring finished (the lights are being weird), I'm adding some relays, redoing some janky wiring, adding a switch panel and installing some gauges. I hope to go race at Gingerman on May 16th for tracknight in America.
