It's come a long way, but still quite a bit to go.

Got a lot more done, should be ready to roll out this weekend. I have more pics, but not gonna post anymore till I have it done other than this.
I was playing around with a bumper I had laying around that I took off of my old Dakota. Didn't like it like this so making a little change.

Well I got it running and had a nice little popping coming from the exhaust. Did a compression test and only had 55 psi on number 1, so I pulled the head and found this. Head is at the machine shop getting redone right now, supposed to have it back tomorrow. Hope so, sure would like to drive it a little bit before I leave for a year.

Ok, it's done as much as it's going to be until I get back from Korea. I will take care of the doors then plus a whole bunch of little stuff.
I think someone has previously regeared the diffs though. With the 4.90 transfer case gears and 31 inch tires I am turning about 3000 rpms at 45 MPH in 5th gear.

Inspiring post. 

A lot of people would have ran for the hills after finding all that rust.  Good on you for saving another Zuk. 

Makes me want to go pull the body off my TT and poke around.

Well the time is here, been running the Zuk for awhile but the engine is tired and smoking. So started gathering the parts for a F.I. swap and looking for an 8V 1.6. Instead I found a low mileage 2.0 out of a Tracker for a price I couldn't refuse. Gonna take a little longer to get it done now as this swap is alot more expensive, but sending the harnesses off today.

Well I now have most of the other parts for the swap and power steering. Should have the install kit for the 2.0 in a couple of weeks, then can get on it. Should be pretty fun with that engine in there.

Got the 2.0 in and test fired it. Fired right off but could only run it for a few seconds as the cooling system isn't done yet. Running in to little snags here and there, but going well all told. Just a little slow trying to make sure everything is good and making sure everything fits right. Gonna have to do something about the hood though as it hits. Will work on that after everything else is good. Waiting on the drop pitman arm, should be here Monday along with a couple other things. Now I just need to find my reamer to enlarge the tie rod end hole.

Mike, call SORD. Sky used to make a 1" body lift, I have one on my silver Zuki and had no issues with clearance when I dropped the 1.6 into it.
