The carbotech pads have always clunked the first time stopping in either forward or reverse. I think the backing plates are just slightly undersized.

No real taper wear or anything until they get _proper_ low though.

So... I really should've been paying attention to the forecast & not just assuming it would be fall forever.







Yes, drove home #TopDown since there's only about 1 more time to go top down (weather depending) to tiptoe it to the car wash and gas station before it goes into hibernation.

I should probably be waking this up shortly...

But seeing how the outside looks like this this morning (Apr 14):





I feel less of a rush to get it done. Even though AutoX starts on the 30th.

-----------------------------------




Some of the exhaust valves were beyond tight, smaller clearance than the smallest feeler gauge I have. And some of the intake valves were way loose, more than one feeler gauge looser than spec.

So, that could've gone better. And the valve adjustment needs to be done with the motor _totally_ cold, so it needs to sit overnight before I tackle it again.

-----------------------------------

After doing the valve adjustment over & over & over & over.... (4+ total times through 1->3->4->2) I was finally confident I had them adjusted "right", and had tightened up all the jam nuts.

There we go, idling away.

(Man, cellphone audio sucks compared to gopro audio... which sucks.)

It's out on the road!!!





I forgot I was supposed to be judging the engine after the valve adjustment... "It's an engine!"
