Both front caliper all ready for pads...in out in out all freed up..
And with the help of Mrs Boosted on the clutch i can see the slave is moving 5mm think it just needs a fluid refresh and bleed...
Fork all good under tension...waiting on 5l of Dot 4 as used the last of my supply on shogun...

Good progress there Jon  :13:

The header will be an aftermarket one fitted when all the thermal reactor gubbins was removed (giving you some extra bhp too  :great:)

Not sure on the original battery type. I stuck in an Bosch E23 Varta Blue Dynamic Car Battery (70Ah, CCA 630A) on the basis the c same battery works fine in my RX-8  :) Having a high CCA seems a good move for a rotary.

It's a bit smaller than the original, judging by the battery tray area, so if you want the battery to fit snugly, you'll need a bigger one  ;)

E23 battery is 261 x 175 x 220mm high (inc terminals)

Jon good to see you today.  From my notes front pads are MDB1058 (mine have BJKZ on rear) and rears are MDB1311 (mine have NS502 on rear)

Hope all goes well with your overhaul back to a running state so you can enjoy.

Dave

Fun But....
Well funny ol day...started with the eunos making a screeching noise that i thought was a bearing noise from gearbox ..that got my head under bonnet wrong car...anyways drove down motorfactors rear pads on order came in at 4.20pm...but alas no pads...delisted by all the supplier...mmmm rang Clive he tried but alas no...rang Tim he had some new 1s fitted in a Elford so trip to Salisbury...doh A303 shut 2 hrs later prising pads outta of an Elford...drove home no more noises from eunos...
Fitted pads and with help of neighbour bled front caliper bigtime get rid of old fluid...then go for a pedal...lovelly and firm....but alas both front calipers solid again...i can lever pistons back in with screwdriver but not doing on own...ill work them in out again about 20 times and see...then onto clutch...tried bleeding but pedal going to floor...semi got then splurge ...as soon as pushes on fork resistance overcome...tried a quick rebuild woth rx8 inards as seal same but evident bore of slave had it...
So will ring Clive in morning...change slave and see whats whats. The fork seems fine....usual position? So i had Fun But got no where lol.
Picked rear pads up and looks like Apec our still listing pads.
