      I'm (gratefully) semi-retired now and so I get to indulge in my various hobbies.. well, you know, when the wife allows it LOL.  Seriously though, many of you are WAY more into off-road as a *thing in and of itself* and while I'd definitely be into that, I already have too many hobbies. So for me, off-road means being able to get to a high country lake or steam that's off the beaten path to take in some fly-fishing or hunting without having to watch out for 10 other guys I don't know. Oh sure, sometimes I go up a long logging road just for the hell of it and I've been on some pretty hairy roads and had a great time. But really for me, while I have deep respect for you guys with the snorkels and huge lifts (and I'll ride with ya anytime!) - it's not something I'm kitted out for.
      Also, I'm never sure how to answer profile questions that relate to things like proficiency. When/where possible I've been doing much of the maintenance on my cars and trucks since I was a kid. Still, I'm not equipped to do, for example, a clutch job on my Pathy and I respect those that have invested the money and time to acquire the skills and equipment to do those things and I'll pay anyone fair to do them for me.  If it doesn't require an engine hoist or a walk-under lift, I'm probably gonna be ok doing it BUT I recently tried to change all the plugs on my rig and holy WTH that turned into a nightmare. Even changing the plugs on my 1984 BMW 325i back in the day was a cakewalk in comparison to the '98 Pathy. I wound up being unable to do it because the amount of force I was applying to the plugs was insane and I was worried about actually shearing them.  I eventually had to pay a ton to a mechanic to come up and do it for me.  Lesson learned.

      Pulling the dash to remove the leaky heater core today. No update on the supercharger install, still sitting on the shelf.

      Hi all - has been quite a while between posts/updates. Some health issues (heart) had put all on hold for quite a while. Am getting back to the build and, after the completion of the engine overhaul, got all back in and am closing out on some final areas. As part of this, I am removing most of the anti pollution gear, trying to simplify the vacuum lines and also fitting the Redline Weber kit. That has all progressed reasonably well apart from some connections not being clear as to what goes where and what can be deleted/capped. I made various sketches and notes when I dismantled but am no finding that some of the component markings have been lost in cleaning and handling.  In working through the pollution gear, I have been using the other excellent write ups on the forum although ones specific to the VG30i are few and far between.
      So, with all of that, I was hoping to get some advice/clarity on the following - numbers reference in the pic - tried uploading the pic but am getting message saying I can t upload. Hopefully this link will work - goes to same pic in shared dropbox file. https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArhBM0TeWGIago8uxSJwDKmMOe_snQ?e=achdZt :
      1.  Is a vacuum line under left side of carbie. I believe this goes up to the purge connector on the canister but, if not, is this OK to cap or should it connect to somewhere else?
      2. I believe this is a loop connection to the AB valve on the air cleaner. Can this be capped when I remove the AB valve or  something else?
      3. I wasn't sure on what this one was, whether vacuum or coolant (currently radiator/coolant is dry so wanted to sort before filling up fluids). If coolant, where is this leading to for connection? If vacuum, OK to cap?
      If the pipe from 1 in the pic doesn't go t the purge connection on the canister, where does the purge line connect? As the TBI has been swapped to the weber, very limited vacuum line connections now. 
      And the really strange one, underneath the front (drivers side here in Oz) are the metal fuel lines that come up the filter and return and, while they are all OK, in the same group is another steel line that departs this group and then goes across the front cross member to about mid way with right angle bend and then an end that looks like a flared end but a few mm back from the end of the [pipe, suggesting a rubber pipe connects to the pipe. The breather line from the fuel tank is connected and is connected to the cannister already so doesn't appear to be mixed with that. Am hoping to get a pic of this one on this coming weekend as well as try chasing it back along the length of the terrano underneath.
      Sorry for the long list of questions but i am really hopeful that some sage advice will be forthcoming and avoid me contemplating putting a match to it from frustration 🙂
      Thanks in advance to all

      Currently everything is stock. Would like the option to go off road with ease. I do plan on going out camping and hikes
