1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Wrench-Turning Update

August 15, 2011

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Wrench-Turning Update 

Project Miata spent some downtime in the Edmunds HQ garage while I traveled here and there. If you recall, its clutch hydraulics took a crap a couple weeks ago. That's all sorted now that I've swapped out the clutch master and slave (the culprit turned out to be the slave) on the bottom floor of the dim, stuffy, underground parking area.

Now it's time to address the lame-ass cooling system, which is what's happening in the lead shot. I've got plenty more to share on that subject, but right now I've gotta locate a tight-radius silicone elbow. Stay tuned.
