Poor Jamie - I had exactly the same thing happen to me the first time I took the drive shafts out of the AZ-1. They are ever so easy to fit back in except when you're panicing to refit them, to stem the flood of oil, then they just seem to bend in all the wrong directions and refuse to go back in.
Good advice from Gruss too - the fuel will either be like jelly or non-existant and the tank full of rust!

I agree with the sentiments about the fuel and fuel tank. Petrol goes off relatively quickly and anything over a year I wouldn't even think of trying to run the car on it. Get the tank off and give it a clean out.

If nothing else it's peace of mind that the tanks clear and if there are any issues later on then you can rule out dodgy fuel/filter and crap in the tank.

Well I have a headache from the fuel fumes, and it's all looking good.
:thumb:

Shocks are on and she doesn't bounce forever any more, fluids are all topped up, exhaust is on and drive shafts are fully fitted.

We ran out of daylight before we could try turning her over.
:(

I need some help trying to find a replacement for what I think is the cat temperature sensor, single lead sensor anyway. We can't get the old one out of the exhaust and thus the new exhaust is left with a hole in it which will sound pretty awful hehe.

Could it be one of these - ebay link
I tred one on my 'zato and it didn't work, but I think Gruss used one on his Mira and it worked a treat.

Top work Chris, do you know what size it is? (it's a big old hole hehe)

I don't know Andy, are the cappos single wire too?

From memory the hole and thread was quite similar to a spark plug.
Worst case you could prob bung up the hole in the exhaust with an old plug, just be careful not to damage the thread.

The CAT thermo fuse is yes so depends if it is actually one of those or a lambda sensor.  I'm confused now...

If it's a single wire (probably white0 it's got to be the cat temp sensor - thE worst thing that will happen, if it's not there ,is an annoying light on the dash (mines been on for 3 years) A lambda/o2 sensor would have a minimum of 3 wires so it can't be that. Just find something to bung up the hole and see what  happens :lol:
