lol I've said what's wrong before. Clutch fork popped off the pivot stud. All the shop had to do was pull the trans put it back in place, put the trans back, then do the cable. Took them a few hours.

I didn't think you were sure that was the prob or not. Glad it's fixed. What did it cost you?

When you do it for a living it matters. If I can get 3 trans jobs in a day then that's more $ for me vs doing 1.

Because I'd like to not be doing a trans job longer than I have to. Also lift time is per hour. And obviously if you are a shop tech you get paid more.

I understand that, but to me it seems pointless to be mentioned for this particular build.

I'm pretty sure we have jacked this thread already. At the moment I think we have rebuilt a clutch and two transmissions, all using a rented lift and garage on post.

My apologies to the OP for the distraction. I can't promise that the chaos will stop. Your repairs, posts, and pics have my mind on my own pony project.

I don't mind that much lol. This thread really died until my clutch went out. Haven't been able to really put any money into the car. Would love to do a K member and A arms over summer and get new tires for my track wheels..... But i really need a daily.

I know what you mean about needing a daily driver. I have the engine ripped out of my truck (engine is a total loss). The Mustang was a temporary solution until I find an engine worth buying. Now I have a noise in my Mustang that I am hoping is the clutch. With my luck it's an input bearing.

One broken vehicle at the time please.

This specific spot has a ton of space around it. Someone would have to be pretty awful at driving to hit me there. Probably the most space around the car in the entire parking lot. I'll get a pic tomorrow.

That Heater Hose Tee broke again!!!!!!

So ****ing tired of **** breaking on this. It happened in a tunnel, on my way back from an internship interview. Granted i was going 4k+ in the tunnel and on and off the throttle. But i'm tired of this ****.

I'm getting a daily driver.

Again?!?
I guess that is something to keep an eye on.

Probably, a metal Tee can be sourced, rather than the plastic junk sold at the auto parts stores.

I looked EVERYWHERE for a metal Tee last time. I could not find one at all, otherwise I would have gotten one.

I'm going to start carrying a spare unless I can find a suitable metal replacement. That's ridiculous that a part like that breaks and pretty much stops you dead in your tracks!

Yes that is exactly what they are talking about.

I never really thought about it, but one of my Bullitts has the heated PCV setup and one doesn't.

I like them all. I considered a Fusion for a long time. You can find them with low miles and only a few model years old around me. I have seen them here for around 8-10k with less than 50k miles for a 2009 or 10. All of those look good. The mini is intriguing to me, be a fun little car, great on gas, park easy etc. Prob expensive for repairs like the Audi or BMW. I think I would go in this order if I was looking to buy just going by the ads and not seeing them in person: Fusion- prob the most reasonable, cheaper to repair, good track record, cheap insurance, then the Mini, Audi, BMW. Overall not considering anything practicaly: Audi, Mini, BMW, Fusion, lol

It is expensive, just like the BMW and Audi. Not as bad being the N/A engine.

Yeah, i want reliable. But do want pretty comfy. Its not a coincidence all of those i listed have leather interior lol. I do like that BMW though. But the fusion is cool also. The mini and Audi i threw in there because of the low miles. It would be later on the list. The BMW is going to be the closest also. Guess i gotta find some time to test drive and also try to get financed. I can budget $8k for a car. That would include putting down like $1500. So like a $6.5k loan.

Best bet is the fusion. Your savings won't like the bills of that BMW. Best advice domestic or jap, no euro.
Being 85% of my business is imports, particularly European. I know.

I agree. Out of those cars the Fusion is the most practical choice.
