The SR is now all ready to be installed. However, before we can do that, we have some things we must to take care of.
First, the steering linkage. Since the turbo outlet elbow runs so close to the steering linkage, the factory rubber steering linkage bushing has zero chance of survival. To remedy this we decided to install a solid aluminum bushing.
You may recall in part 1 of this series that we ended up using a VW Fox brake booster from a junkyard to make the engine fit. Well, that junk yard booster was very, very bad. We ended up using it as a core and got a re-manufactured booster. We also never actually made the linkage work, so we need to do that before we install the engine since it’s impossible to install or remove the brake booster with the engine in.
