I told him that it might be glazed when he was attempting to hoon today

That's a good idea. My quick google searching does not hold forth much hope for burning the oil off, rather it suggests you will just end up glazing the clutch.

Did you hose it off with brake cleaner (like mine)?

Yes jerk, its back and running, sort of I guess. Really does feel great until the clutch starts slipping at +/- 5000rpm.

I'm hoping it'll burn off, but it doesn't seem to be.

While you're choking bitches, clear your inbox.

So you've already pulled the engine, replaced the crank, and got the car back on the road? You are fast. I mean, I know April's mentioned that before, but I hadn't really appreciated how fast you actually are.

I know right? I did manage to fix my oil sandwich plate leaks by using jb weld instead of teflon goo, that's nice.

I'll see what a little driving does for the clutch, it does have oil from the previous crankshaft to burn off. I just hope there isn't any more being added.

After a leaky track day with a slipping clutch, I pulled my engine to replace the crankshaft. Fucking bullshit ass wipe shazbot still slips.

Now I have no idea if:

1. rear main is still leaking
2. clutch plate is too saturated with oil
3. transmission is leaking at my replaced input shaft seal
4. grease I used on the input shaft is liquifying with heat and oiling the clutch
5. new/used transmission is somehow breaking something to oil the clutch

And I have no idea how to eliminate/check what the fuck it's doing.

On the bright side it's running smoothly and powerfully before it starts slipping.
Are you sure you still don't have my car by mistake?
I feel your pain. Sucks when you have multiple interrelated issues and not sure which variables are playing the largest role. Good luck and if you need an extra hand let me know.

You don't want my car with its leather and AC and power options.
Leather would be redone and sold to fund another seat, a/c would be ditched, and power options would stay.

Is the car in good shape? Man I hope you get it. My one and only time behind the wheel in an AP2 was a life altering experience. Instructing in one was almost as enjoyable too!

Richard- did you get your Cobalts? Hope you like em. No peasant-like pad bedding procedures. Eddie mentioned that Bob Bundy drove one of the 949 25 Hour cars and was incredibly disappointed going from his Cobalts to Carbotechs.

I don't have experience with carbos so no comment but that seems like a pretty convincing testament.

Oh interesting I didn't think you were going to try to make it street legal given the dubiousness of its ownership status. You have awoken the sleeping beast!

I can use a trip ticket on it, but I'm in the process of trying to figure out registration right now. Sign forms in triplicate, send to DOL, wait for calls regarding legality of my claim, sign more forms, shoot myself in the head.

I haven't even looked at the brakes or done any kind of oil change on it. It probably hasn't had any maintenance done in at least 2 years and the tires are probably 8+ years old. I also don't have funds right now to do all the maintenance I want to on two cars.
