My buddy is moving...

And, he's giving me some of his extra parts. So far, I've gotten an old Chevy intake (it has the fill tube in the intake--late 60's I believe) almost a dozen valve covers (including the aluminum M/T tall ones at the top of the stack), a couple of oil pans full of old engine internals, a steering column from a late '80s Camaro, and just a box of assorted goodies. It sucks that he's moving, but it looks like Christmas is early at my place. I'll post more pics as I find more goodies. There's also, I guess, going to be a couple of 4.3 engines, a small pile of transmissions, and an engine stand. He's only moving about an hour away, but the new place is a lot smaller, so his loss is now my gain. I suppose it pays to be in the right place at the right time. The sad part is, we worked on a lot of stuff together, and I will lose a good teacher. Oh well....


In a while, Chet.

i figure that they'll look even better on my Monte. As soon as I figure out the best way to get them clean, anyway...

I've now found a few S-10 blazer parts, and an aluminum brake master cylinder. Too bad there's no booster to go with it. Does anybody need a Ski-doo tach?


In a while, Chet.

you'll need to hammer the crap out of them to get them to fit on the inline 6, but i've made tighter fits work before!

Nice find dude, Those valve covers look like they would look almost brandnew with a little polishing.
Do you have a pic for that seadoo tach? I gotta a couple seadoos siting in my backyard, I might be able to use it.

I may have to send them down, I'm not sure how to get them totally clean.

How do you want the measurement? From the middle of the wheel to the end of the splines, or what?

Yeah, I can get a pic in a day or two, but it's a Ski-doo, not a seadoo. I'm not sure it'll work for you, but I hope it will. Been busy helping with the move. Lots of boxes. And now I inherited a Jacobson snowblower and a garden tiller. I didn't even know that he had either of them. And, I don't even know if they run...

In a while, Chet.

Sand blast them. It will not hurt the aluminum. 78novaman you want a set. let me know I have a set in the shop. Someone has made the pcv holes for the larger size I beleive and they do not have any baffles. I picked them up cause they were cheap and not really sure if I will ever use them or not.

Thanks, I never thought of sandblasting them. That'll work great to clean up the insides, too.

In a while, Chet.

bead blast the aluminum. less agressive.

From back of wheel to column end , where splines come out of. (plastic bushing)



Oops, nevermind. I didn't see that it has a shifter on it. I need a column that doesn't have a shifter.

A good silica sand will not hurt the aluminum at all. I have done this many times with aluminum parts without any pitting at all.

Opps Brad... It's a Bombardier

Sorry about that. It says Bombardier on it, not Ski-doo. But here's the pics anyway.

Thanks chet, Both of mine are bombadiers. Neither of them have a tach, of and I didn't see any type harness that they might go into.
Ill look into see what it takes to wire one of them up. I could use it since were considering turning one into a hotrod by building the engine out of the 3seater and swaping it into the 2 seater.
