Great weekend away. I'll do a proper post later with pics and story. Covered 750km over 3 days, mostly running well :)

Soo the Wookies weekend!

The Christchurch and Wellington crews met at Mana BP - which was a financially painful hour or so - it took me about 30 mins to get 71 litres in - I need to look at the tank vents again. I've checked everything over but either something's still blocked or kinked, or there's a design flaw here!




And I ended up being last-minute transport for a set of 19" BBS wheels from a Golf.


Next stop Bulls, then Taihape, then Ohakune.
On the way to Taihape my speedo was playing up, only reading when pressing the accelerator, going to zero when coasting. It made keeping to the speed limit down hills a bit tricky.
I did a bit of soldering in the BP car park and it was better on the next leg but not perfect.








Bit more soldering later on and things improved, though it still occasionally read whatever it wanted occasionally

Day 2 - the main event! Rusty ran really well.
The clutch and gear shift feel much better, handling and steering are massively improved too.
The car sounds great, and had no real issues. Patrizia started telling me "Brake system defective" but everything felt right, no actual brake issues, so I temporarily unplugged the sensor on the brake bomb to shut her up.

Day 3 - home.
All went well on the run home until about 10km away on Transmission Gully in heavy rain and spray I started having boost issues over 3000RPM.
One to investigate once I have time.
Wookies itself was awesome - just a weekend driving around, hanging out with car people, eating and drinking and just having a chill time.

Ohh yes !


And a major breakthrough has happened - my wife has declared Rusty to be "not too smelly to ride in". :D

I have solved part of the mystery of the crappy filling experience with pics from a another car.




You can see thereís a double outlet going to the vent I have plus a fat one that links back to the filler.

 This is mine





Single small pipe. It makes sense that the small pipe canít vent enough air to compensate for the fuel flow.

And my filler tube has been welded up where the connector should be.

How odd!

I know the car was hit hard from behind once when parked and had extensive repairs so maybe the tank is from a different model, or maybe some repair person did this for a reason but itís weird.

Yay all washers working. As always it turned into a more complex job than expected. The rear washer I had to extend the pipe as it seems to have shrunk with age and wouldnít reach the pump. The fronts were blocked, and the water smelled funky. It seems to have dried out at some point and formed smelly black slime which has blocked the squirters. Took them off and soaked them in cleaning solution overnight. Had to pull the bottle out and clean it, using bleach to make sure!
And I managed to damage the wiring to the pump so had to repair that too.
Itís never simple!
