Itís funny because the powder coater I used did the same thing even after I told him not too.  Not sure how the surface will turn out now after it will be sand blasted twice,

My guy said he could take it to his machinst and have him turn it on a lathe and get it back down to metal....But I just gave him a spare and had him do it over...Not a big deal...Im glad you pointed it out before i got ready to install it....

Now it's time to clean up wiring in the engine bay. It's all a mess since it was all bundled together for paint....

Time to start routing everything correctly and get ready to drop this engine back in....

Looks awesome dude! Next time I'm up your way I'd like to come by and check it out. I've also done quite a bit to my Miata since the last time I saw you.

Finally some time to work....

I purchased a new brake booster and master cylinder, so I went ahead and got those installed....

Posted Image


I also went ahead and started getting the engine bay put back together. I put back in the ignitor and coil and started routing all the harness...I also removed the battery tray and sprayed it black with some "VHT wrinkle plus" paint...It cleaned it up pretty good and now I need to clean the bolts for the battery tray since they are rusty....

You can also see the new Summit 10-Micron fuel filter, and Aeromotive AFPR I just installed. I just placed an order through Summit for new braided -6AN fuel line, and the correct -6AN fittings I needed...I did not know it would cost $117 to plumb the car for Fuel with this MPI swap...The $$$ keeps slowly adding up... <_<

And my cheap ebay badge I put on the firewall....just because... ^_^

With this XTD clutch, I had to move my dowels on the flywheel, but they wouldnt budge. I tried a little heat (as you can on the new friction plate), but they still would not come out. So I called Fidanza, and they mailed me 3 new dowels free of charge.

So I baked the flywheel in the oven, and put the dowels in the freezer all day. Then the new ones were easily tapped right in to the proper location.

Got the new friction plate, and flywheel finally put on. Torqued to 120ft lbs. I used the 12mm socket trick I found on this thread:

And here is the new XTD Stage3 6-puck Ebay special. I've read many members here being satisfied with this clutch, so I thought I would give it a try. You can't beat the price at less than $100 currently...

Hopefully, more to come tomorrow....Ill have an extra set of hands to help tomorrow, and we should get the tranny bolted on, and maybe get it dropped into the engine bay....
