I went to visit some friends this weekend at the Ripepi Winery, you Pittsburgh guys should check them out.
I made another sealing/masking plug, this one is for the vehicle speed sensor in the trans.
I had to buy some O-rings, I wasn't sure what size so I bought -208 and -209. I ended up using the -208 size.
All plugged up! The vent is plugged with a rubber cork and some glue-lined heat shrink tubing, the reverse switch is plugged with a bolt and rubber washer, and the selector rod is sealed with HVAC tape.
Note: I need a new one of these, it's torn.
The next step was cleaning the trans. It was above freezing last night, so I wheeled my table outside and pressure washed it with some Awesome. Yes that's still snow on the ground haha.
I started sanding away the casting texture so the paint lays flat and smooth... this is the start of a loooong job.
