I originally wanted to finish up clutch master/slave install this weekend, but needed a piece of steel line to make a new clutch line, and the local store couldn't find it in stock. So puttered around with a few things and took some some inventory of stuff I'll need to fix/update. Fastening the new clutch slave was the first time I was under the front of car, and other than the small spot around the slave cylinder where I cleaned things off a bit, it's pretty oily underneath. I'll have to give a good cleaning to see where/what's leaking, but at the moment, there's lots of oil on the bottom of the engine and transmission :
Anything made of rubber looks pretty well rotten, like this. So various bushings will get added to the shopping list.
what do you call this hose that feeds some warm air up to the outside of the exhaust manifold? In any case, it's missing, but maybe down around LA here, it's not such a big deal? Is this normally a rubber hose, or flexible duct that connects to the metal part?
And I noticed I'm missing the plastic air ducts that would go in the corners of the engine bay. I assume these feed fresh air vents in the cabin?
