Not that you will do any major water crossing here in the north west. But you may find deep pudles.
The higher you can place them the better.also do at least 1 loop to allow moisture to collect and evap back out. And if you place it in a location where its not covered and may collect rain. Than bend the tip 90* back down to allow rain to drip off and not enter.
Just some pictures of the build... I'm sure many of you have assembled a few engines (to say the least!), so this probably won't be anything new...
All pistons in, and ready to get WILD!!!
Any suggestions for paint colors? Piston's orange?
The Remflex was a necessity. The gaskets provided by Doug Thorley Headers were round, where they clearly needed to be egg-shaped... When I called and inquired about that, I was told simply "we've been sending that gasket out with that header for over a decade, and you're the first to mention it..." huh... ok...
Clearly not the same...
So Remflex wins!
I want to do "the big 3" upgrade, but where is the best place to find supplies?
You're getting fancy with it!!! I'm anxious to see the outcome
Haha... me too! I just finished fitting on a few pulleys... I'm wondering if there's something I should do to my alternator since I've got easy access to it... Maybe an upgrade or something? Anyone familiar with 22R-Es have a suggestion? Something that I can do or get cheap? The wallet is gettin pretty thin
Anyone have a pilot bearing puller I can borrow? Call or text: 8O1-783-5O68
So I decided to paint some stuff and bolt on a few more things before calling it a night.
The only reason I used green is because I wanted to be able to see it while I'm lifting the transmission, bolting on the starter, etc...
Well, that's about all for tonight. I blew some compressed air through the alternator, but I haven't found anything on google that says I should try to take it apart and clean it... Have you guys used something to clean an alternator?
With a little love, she's starting to look nice... First thing I did was check to see if the clutch still works, and it does Just set the compressor on the negative on my battery, and tapped the wire to the positive, and the clutch clicked right over.
Then I had to hop on AutoCad to get the bracket ready:
So the piece on the left is the engine side, the piece on the right is the york side, and the 4 holes in the center of each plate are to line it up before welding the plates together.
This may delay the build a day or so, but it will be worth it.
I was cautioned that running the compressor will eat what 'little' power my engine makes, and I assure you, I won't be running it when not in use. I have a nice OBA tank that will be used.
Here's a diag. I stole from Kilby:
Some of the components might change, but this is the general idea...
Feel free to let me know if you see a kink in my plan. I'm always open to suggestions.
Well, I'm almost ready to put the motor back in. I was delayed a few hours because I was getting my injectors cleaned!
Professional Injector Kleaning did a really nice job. I won't be able to fully recommend them until I get the motor running, but from what I can see, they did a superb job. Military discount (10%), and he had my injectors back to me the same day!
The guy said that my cold start injector didn't even work. He had to put it through a few ultrasonic cleanings just to see a trickle. When all was said and done, he gave me a call (same day), and let me know that one of the spare injectors I gave him he wasn't going to do because it was too damaged, and he couldn't warranty it. That's right, all the injectors have a 1 year warranty!
Anyway, here's what I picked up After:
Full clean and rebuild, $22.50 ea. and I bought 4 extras a while back as spares for $3 ea.
Really great investment, considering that new, each injector was more than $150, I decided to support a fellow local small business..
Anyway, now that the intake is on, I'm ready to drop in the motor. I'm just waiting on the laser cutter to finish up with the adapter plates I sent them so that I can mount on the York, get the length for the belt, and bolt it on. Still looking for a good coalescent filter, and where to mount the OBA tank, but I'm hoping to at least be done before the next meeting so I can show off the goods
ExCabSwap: The wind there looks horrible... Still worth it haha

poorboy: Can somebody give me the official rules for the Cowbell please?

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
