Nicely laid out, I had a polly cell it deformed, top started to collapse after a year or so. Installed aluminum just a heads up to the future. You probably know this but there is an AN bulkhead fitting with a 45 you could use on the right had fuel line.

Going to try to get the seat rails figured out also. Any advise on how to do the front of the trans tunnel? Cone shapes are not me favorites. Bob
Laid out cone shapes in graphics class in high school about 43 years ago. Good luck.

then fire up the replacement computer, as this one is 4 weeks old have locks up..(dells testing showed harddrive on way out) the send a computer but it was the wrong one.. so.. fingers crossed this one will be correct..
then load everything onto the new one.. and then I can built a build thread/journal ..
then get ready to .wire the gauges, and be clean and ready to watch, our pats, kill the N.Y. jets..

eliptical done,,
foul, honey doo list....added sneak attack
back to regular stipulated programing soon..
dam you honey do list...........................

Hey Bill,
White tank on left is for alcohol water injection system.
Luggage will go in the, not yet built, trailer.
Already have it set up for a receiver hitch and trailer wiring.
Thanks for the tip on the fitting unix, but all the fuel lines are just laying in place right now for quick pictures.

Damn!
Didn't get far on the short block this morning before problems.
First rod/piston assembly in and rod bolt hits the block.
This is a stock stroke motor but the rod bolts don't clear.
The rods are Eagle h beams with the L19 rod bolt upgrade.
No one informed me that there could be clearance issues.
I'm really pissed I have to take it all apart again to clearance the block.

Hope everyone Else's day is going better.

Well, just over a week ago I started out with a simple, rear only brake job on my truck (it's an F350 4x4) to match the fronts done late last fall. Today, when finishing it up found one more dilemma. One of the hub bearings is shot. Now, so far:

A of Hawk LTS pads
Two new rotors - they're heavy suckas !!
Two reman calipers - these are beefy too
Two parking brake backing plates
Two sets of parking brake hardware
Two hoses (but will probably return them)
One expensive oil seal
One cup and cone inner bearing

Heck, I did engine overhauls for way less then this fiasco is going to cost.






I live in the rust belt

I don't know how you guys do it, man that is rough. I don't see rust like that on a fifty year old car, no kidding. Don't get me wrong, cars rust but it just isn't the same. My Windstar was from back east and you could see a BIG difference, it was not as old when I bought it as this Caravan I just replaced it with and the Caravan doesn't have a spec of rust on it.

Brian, after every snow flurry that leaves a coating on the roads, the highway department comes along and dumps the crunchy output of some salt mine - and the roads are white until it either rains or the next snow dump. That means the cars are white as well - regardless of the paint color. It IS a challenge. My 6 year old truck will be junk in another couple years without continued work - and at the price of even a 1 or 2 year old pre owned, repairs will continue until they can't be done any longer.

What's even worse, that salt is embedded in the road surface and every time it rains, more brine 24/7/365
