Two Questions

While cleaning up after my engine install I found the small 1/2 moon shaped metal panel that goes between the tranny and engine. I forgot to put it on. Is that important enough to drop the tranny or can I live without it for now? Not figuring on doing anything crazy with the ZUke right now like water crossings or deep mud. Also is the horn wired hot and the horn button grounds it or is it the opposite. I need to install the horn and make a bracket and want to know if I should insulate the bracket. TIA. Jim

Re: Two Questions

The moon shaped mud guard is just that, a guard - so it isn't essential to the operation of your Zuke. However, you won't need to drop the tranny to install it. It can be attached at any time. [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Now, as I re-read your post, are you talking about the large plate that goes between the tranny bellhousing and engine? That IS important. But what will happen without it? I don't know. When I pulled my 1.3 to install my 1.6, that part was missing, so I guess you can drive without it.
Don't know about the horn without looking at a wiring diagram.

Re: Two Questions

Had me a little worried when you mentioned there were 2 metal guards and I only remembered 1. Then I remembered the big one that kept falling off as we tried to get the engine in. That one is on it is the little 1.(see attach). I'm glad to find I can put it on anytime. Thanks for the horn info too. Jim

Re: Two Questions

That cover in the pic is the flywheel cover. you do want it on when you go wheeling or your bell housing will fill with crud and possibly shorten component life.

Yeah or you could look at it as the crud will fall out easier when it DOES get in there. & yeah the horn is hot.
