Here are the pics. Maybe some kind moderator would allow me to edit my post again or maybe put these in the appropriate places...

And here are a few things I would like to get ID'd. I don't really know where they're supposed to go or even if I need to use them. The one thing I would like to keep is the ability to use the heater .

I'm not sure which one of these goes to the rear lights, or what the other connections are for. I know the speed sensor is on the other side of the transmission, but there are two electrical lines as well...

Got the TB put back together. I also put in the fusebox mounting bracket. After looking at my motor I'm thinking that a new waterpump housing (at least just the housing) would be pretty cool and would simplify the radiator hose routing -- where would I get somethin like that?



Also, I'm not sure how to finish the brake system -- I haven't been able to find a 3/16" tubing -> AN adapter to save my life. I've even though about completely scrapping the tubing and doing just AN, but I still wouldn't know how to attach the stainless steel hose to the master...

Rear brakes are going on this weekend pending the purchase of calipers...

I managed to engineer a solution for the T->Master Cylinder problem. I installed the ReSpeed -10AN oil pedestal so I can hook up my oil pressure gauge when the time comes. I would have installed the brake kit, but for some reason I ASSumed that it used 4pots all the way around, so now I have an extra set of TII FRONT calipers and I'm need of TII REAR calipers to complete the conversion.



The TII water pump fits nicely and allows for much more straightforward plumbing to the radiator. I dismantled it and I'm getting it bead blasted and painted. Here are pics of the progress:

Do you still need those things identified? Keep your head up, things will come together. People don't realize how long of a project this is. There have to be a million half finished turbo FB's out there.

Thanks for response .



I still don't have a clue what some of those are. I don't know if I just can't read the manual or what...haha. I want to keep heat though -- I didn't remove the core. I'm making progress. I should have the Respeed rear brakes on this weekend.



I installed the RB dual belt pulley but I'm afraid that I might have dropped a thrust bearing: I unbolted the main eshaft bolt, not all the way, just sort of broke it loose, and then remembered that I should have the motor upright. I moved it and then removed the bolt. I hope I didn't cause any damage.



I finished clear-coating my new water pump and after I install it I guess I'll know for sure. If the pullies line up I'll be golden. I've already purchased everything to replace the bearing if necessary so...we'll see.



EDIT: I don't need to know where that extra nipple on the waterpump goes since I have a new one now .

Ok, well if you need something let me know. I know where some of those things go. Your setup is slightly different than mine and I think there are a couple small differences.
