It cranks if I turn the battery charger all the way up to "sizzle", but it wouldn't start. It's 2:40am so I'm done. It can have a new battery after the holiday weekend.



Who can spot the piece I forgot to install? (Besides the air can; I don't have one yet)

I couldn't handle the suspense, so after I cut my mom's lawn, I found something I needed to fix on her Prius. The local parts international chain, was giving away two day old used batteries for $20, so I popped one in the Galant as long as I was up here anyway...

She fired a pile of mouse feces out of the tailpipe, and sprung to life. The idle quickly smoothed out, and she started purring like a kitten. My little helper said, "She sounds like she could do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs!". Give it time Chewie, give it time. LOL

Startup video to follow...

>>>Spoiler alert<<< The video gives away the name of the crucial missing part from the photo.

Great job saving the car! I have 630/1000 which is also Belize Green. I noticed in your video, when you pulled out of your garage there was some sort of sculpture thing. Did you make that?

He's Gearhead. Just something I tossed together one day about a year and a half ago.

Ps. That slip yoke hanging there is his tailbone by the way. So, no it's not what you were thinking.

The car is all together! I borrowed a dealer plate, and drove it around for the first time today. It's awesome! I'll have to get the pictures off my camera sometime and post up the progress.

Nice work Dayo!

I condemned a car for a member here, some time back. WEll, flat out told him to run to the hills before driving it around.

That hulk looked a million times worse than what we have seen on your VR4 to this point.

Once the guys get wind of your Colt, as 89Mirageman stated, they will see the light.

What improvements did they make on newer valve covers? Although red cover is collectable by now!

No MLS head gasket on this car JoeDaddy0, just a Felpro composite gasket. I'm only running 8 psi on this one, so I think it will do the job. I do run Cometic MLS on the other car.
I'm not aware of any valve cover improvements, other than the Hundai covers with the anti crush the s**t out of your VC style bolts.
I'm running the original valve cover, but the original paint was half corroded away.

Anyhoo, latest news is: I fixed my boost leaks! The main one was a rotted cold pipe directly after the FMIC coupler.

I had to hack the end off and weld a new one on. (story of this cars life)



Re purposed an old heat shield that I built years ago and replaced the radiator.

I have a little over 400 miles on the car so far, and all is good. I have also made bike mounts, and added snowboard holders to my roof rack.

Next step is going to be putting this stuff all over the top of the car.
