    Finally it's alive!!!!!


    It's been a rough 7 weeks. Last weekend I finally installed the master, slave, hydraulic clutch line (with drill mod), new bell housing from Quick Time. Then had to weld in a new O2 sensor bung because I stripped the old one out by accident. Clear the codes and now she's running real good!!!

    All of this started because some shit bag from a shop that can't read put in ATF instead of Dot III in the clutch master while bleeding the clutch. I know, I know, never let another man touch your car, but this was a case of I needed it done and I didn't have the time or space to do it. Lesson learned again the hard and expensive way.


    I'm just glad to have her back. Now that the clutch is fixed I plan on getting some vids. Will post this weekend if able due to weather.

    So i have the same problem with the o2 Sensor bung. Is there a way to tap it?? i gotta get that bitch in there somehow. Because cutting out the old one and getting a new one welded in seems like a bitch

    You could possibly try a helicoil..

    Suggestion: If you are particularly irritated by another member's posting habits and are constantly fighting the urge to flame them, you can click on that person's profile, and select "Add to ignore list." This will make that person's posts invisible to you.

    Look for this thread chaser tool. It has worked for me. O2 sensor thread is 18mm x 1.5 and some spark plugs are the same. so you could also look for a spark plug heli-coil kit.

    Cost me $20 at the same muffler shop that did my SFC, Muffler and exhaust tips.

    I'd call around.
