Driver’s Seat Adjuster

The Driver’s Seat Adjuster (007-A) simply presses into a hole on the side of the Driver’s Seat from Pack 02 (no screws required).

The adjuster itself has a tiny hole on the back that fits over the matching pin on the side of the seat:

Left Engine Block

There are no actions to be taken with this Left Engine Block (007-B), but it will be used in the next pack:

This Left Engine Block will eventually attach to the Right Engine Block using two (2) Type C screws. The cylinder head assembly will be attached to this block assembly with two (2) Type D screws. Store these screws until then.

Thoughts


Install one part, and store the rest. This is becoming a disturbing trend. Good thing I have a lot of storage containers!

  1. Thank you for clarifying the screws!!! EM forgot to clarify any screws, except type C. I put the type Q into the transmission, and have one stuck inside. Anyway, great building and showing us what needs to be put where.

    1. You’re welcome! It takes a little detective work, but the screws can be figured out. I figured some pictures along the way would help other builders.
