That second picture reminds me of an old girlfriend, from days long past. Thank God!
Progress. Have the 36-1 wheel and trigger mocked up and ready for powder coat tomorrow.
Also have intake bolted down for the last time and throttle linkage mostly done.
And also have all the plugs and pins I need to do the harness..
Ordered the an8 fittings I needed for the bosch 044 fuel pump.
Trigger wheel and pickup done...
Had to flip vr sensor over so plug wouldn't touch power steering belt.
Assuming you are using a 6 inch cogged wheel??
Yes I believe it is. Although I don't remember the exact diameter I made it. Lol It's 36-1 wheel.
Almost have harness done now. Need to figure vr sensor polarity and wrap and install harness and mount ecm/fuse/relay panel somewhere still..
Slow going but progress... Need to quit messing with other projects lol.
Got harness benchtested and almost ready to install. Got the coil dwell figured out so now it'll have spark all the way through 21,000 rpm lol.
Need to wrap the harness and mount the ecm stuff.
21,ooo for the Big Cad? Kind of low! I can wing mine to at least 80,000. I also have big nuts holding everything together. Will send pix in a few days. Just had them installed.
What's the address for that vendor???? I could really use a new set!
bro. "hopeful" d
Wiring harness done and mostly in.. Have a few power wires to run and tidy up a few things yet.
Did a composite tooth log to check the vr signal and it looks good. Tested all the sensor inputs and they seem good.
Still need to plumb the fuel pressure regulator and such.
Man you’re getting close to fire in the hole
Starts and runs. After some snags like distributor rotor phasing,and intake gasket leaks.
Idles butter smooth at 13.8-14.1 afr at 625 rpm and 30kpa.
Still a few things to finish up with the efi install. Need to install a check valve in fuel line as the bosch 044 pump does not have one built in. Need to tidy up some wiring. Have a couple intake vacuum leaks to sort out. And lots of tuning..
Once the efi sorted out, will go on to rebuilding the front suspension... It wanders like a lost dog on the highway. I've already upgraded the original brakes and the rear end and has a quick ratio steering box. But needs all new steel bushings and kingpins.
Such a shame to put a pretty painted intake and other stuff on a dirty filthy engine. Just kidding,
Lol. The rest will clean up mint. Car got put on hold for like 2 years
Well, I have no excuse now as to be working on the cad. We now have one of then stay at home orders here in ohio and don't have to go to work for a few weeks. I suppose I'll go as far as I can until it comes down to ordering parts. I'm not sure who all would still be operating
Maybe next warm day I'll dig out the power washer and wash up the engine bay for you 48austin. Lol
Updates? I really enjoy this thread.
