Our cars might have been worked on in the same shop once upon a time

Good news is the lower end is really clean. No gunk, debris, shavings or extra parts lying in the pan.

bad news is the oil temperature sending unit is all hashed up. Looks like someone got frustrated with it and took a hammer to it. We are going to weld a nut to the end, heat it up, and see if we can coax it out. Any ideas are welcome. I am also going to repair the fin damage.

its really a beautiful casting....

I think welding a bolt on it would be a little easer, and it will get you a little farther out from the oil pan.

TO bearing finally arrived, and we got the clutch assembly installed. Larry had a pilot shaft from a maserati Bora lying around so we used that to align the clutch as it was a perfect fit.

I also took out the alternator and the distributor to clean out the valley and replace the two radiator hoses.

Fixed the oil temperature sending unit as well.

my cross member mounts were in poor condition, one was torn the other was cracked.

I had them welded up and reinforced, thickening the L portion.

Tapered radiator hoses? Really?

Does anyone have a source for these?

No Lamborghini is the only place I have found it. and it sell for about $30 each. If you have the thermostats off you might wont to instill a new one its off a 1978 Fiat 124 Spider.

here a link for the thermostats, the new fiat ones look different but it fits perfect.

The hoses went up to $80 a piece. There is no way in hell I am going to pay $350 + for 4 short rubber hoses. I am going to look for another solution, probably just sleeve the smaller end somehow

Post the pic and TAV with the part number as I am not sure which hoses you are talking about. I might be able to get them for you as my hoses were replaced with non stock and my mech never said he had any problems obtaining them at a decent price.

Part #24, 4 required.

there is a 6-8mm difference between the smaller and larger, so you could just use one size hose and clamp the crap out of it.

I bought two size hoses, and I am going to sleeve the smaller size as a trial.
