    Re: Lancer Shelby

    I'd like to see at least -.5* camber on each side and I'll just make the caster as positive as possible while being equal. I wouldn't want it to be more than -1.5* negative camber. That's a bit extreme for the majority of the driving I do.

    Do you like a bit of toe out?
    I think thatvis pretty much what mine came out, need to look at the sheet.

    I honestly try to get it as close to 0 as possible.

    OK, I took a pretty good stab at the alignment today. -1.5* camber. It looked like about +2* caster and almost 1/8" toe in. I raised the front of the car up about 7/8ths" I'm going to drive the car for a few miles tomorrow and see how everything settles since it's a new front suspension essentially.

    Tonight I installed an old fan/shroud assy I made years ago for my black Omni. It's not the nicest thing in town, but that fan moves way more air than stock while taking up less room and pulling less amps. It should really help to keep the car cool at SDAC.

    Replaced all the valve stem seals today. What a pain that is. I dropped them about a million times. Finally found a good method by using a magnet on the front side of the valve stem and sliding the back keeper in place. Then Joy would come in from the front using the magnet to place the front keeper. Hopefully the car won't puff smoke on startup after sitting for a few minutes. The intake seals on #2 #3 and #4 were up a little, but nothing too bad.

    Pulled the turbo with the head still on today so I could install a new oil line, and coolant lines as there weren't any. I tidied up a few things under the hood, but pulling the turbo, etc. takes forever of course. Hope to have it all back together in the next couple of hours.

    I've done it a few times in my Omni but that car had no power steering pump in the way.

    Replaced the odometer gears today with a set from Odometergears.com. They are great and I'll be glad to have the odo working again. The car has about 155K on it now. Next up I'll probably look into replacing the turbo since it burns some oil from there.
