The car was running last weekend but suffered from a serious oil leak. The front main seal was replaced and solved the leak and I was all ready to drive it home and then it died a mile down the road. I managed to not fully secure the crank position sensor when fixing the oil leak and it caught some very critical sensor wires in the accessory belts and tore them apart.
|Dumb, dumb, dumb. Easy mistakes lead to more work, but nothing some new wires and some solder can't fix.|
With massive thanks to Philip, we swapped in a new sensor on the side of the road in the dark and I finally got the car home on Friday. Jason took the car out on Saturday and logged a few more break-in miles on the motor and replaced the year old Dunlop tires with super-sticky Bridgestones and then autocrossed it on Sunday in Florence. A lot is happening really quickly. Next stop is Adel, Georgia for the Dixie National Tour this coming weekend!
