Talking Like a hooker out of jail, I'm back on the streets!

I forgot how much I love this car. As a side note, as of tonight I now know 911s handle quite well in snow, maybe it's the new tires.
Yes, my car is back in action after my engine drop to fix a broken clutch pivot pin, while I was in there I decided to replace the crankcase breather gasket, shift bushings, hood shocks, air filter, add a fuel filter, put on all new heater hoses, turbo valve covers and silicone gaskets, adjust the valves (first time ), engine thermostat o-ring, all 3 oil cooler seals, oil pressure switch, speedometer drive o-ring, reverse switch crush washer, intake manifold to engine and intake to Webers gaskets, spark plugs, and a new throttle link.
I was so damn scared to fire it up, I just knew I'd screwed up something. I did forget to hook up the battery lead to the starter, and to hook up the heat exchanger to heater box hoses, wedging one between the starter and the body . Beyond that everything went great, the car seems to run a little better now, definitely idles much better. It's hard to tell anything else, any throttle sends me sideways in our 5 inches of snow and ice. It was a great chance to clean everything up as well. Anybody afraid of dropping your engine, don't be, there's nothing to it. All I know is that next time I'll have one of these, balancing an engine and transmission on a pallet on a floor jack sucks! Later.

That's OK, I say you have good reason to be excited.
