If you just need a cable I have a new one. Not sure if it will work for your application but I thought I'd offer.

PostSubject: did you know   Thu Mar 17, 2011 3:51 pm

Well I went for a little ride today, when I was backing up the driveway I noticed on the passenger seat the torsion covers. Pucker factor 2 on a scale to 10

Cold bugger, weather was in the 40's no icing but she was not happy.

And of the battery in the camera was dead.

Have you ever scratch your head and think you know that carburetor looks crocked and it s not running like it did. Its fixed.

Found and enrichment circuit just working on an idea for a lever. When you buy a brake cable from Walmart it comes with 4 cables in the box. Thanks Walmart..

Tachometer is mounted using an older Sun 3 inch model.

Got the torsion plates on and tighten. I have to lower the front end now.

Movie coming tomorrow.

As Speedie said she likes to run not idle, when you drive it it like to be in a higher RPM range.

I have to do some homework on the traction bar I thought it was a wham bam thank you mame. Not this car. Remember I have a longer deck lid if that make a difference. If I used bumper bolt holes the only thing I could use it for is to hang my license plate.

PostSubject: traction bar   Fri Mar 18, 2011 5:42 pm

This morning brought new inspiration for the traction bar. I made a rear motor mount traction bar. It is mounted tight against the motor to help distribute the stress to the lower mount hole. I believe I need to reinforce the inner fender well/wall. Everything was going great until (that is a nasty weld oh crap I am out of gas.)

Real estate is hard to come by lately so I had to get a little creative.



Now we dont want any rain to ruin the regulator do we. Rain hat



Traction bar This is a mock up I have a better piece of steel to use in case it not up to par.



Full rear view if i dont run a bumper I may mount the rear plate on it.



So clean up the wiring with a loom and shoot a video.

PostSubject: this may help   Tue Mar 22, 2011 9:10 pm

So got the Taxes done money coming back.

Chris picked up my Argon so I can finish up the traction bar/rear motor mount tomorrow. I am going to add some sheet metal to the inner tail section it will add strength. I will treat for some natures weight reduction. (rust). I am going to use a technique they use on 914 for structural reinforcement. drill 5/16 holes and spot weld the panel in. I will show pic's later.

I need to order some carburetor rebuild kits from CB so I am going to go over this one. I ran a cable yesterday for the enrichment circuit The lever is right behind the emergency brake. Its a thumb shifter from a road bicycle and a new cable. It was just long enough.

I need to mount the coil better and I brazed the brass nut that holds the turbo oil return line. So remount the valve cover is in order.

I made a templet for a new rear valance but I am a little concerned about the air behind this beast. Nothing may be better than the wrong something.

Well after hours of work only two more welds and I am done with the traction bar/rear motor mount. Is it over engineered maybe, two bolts and you can pull the motor. That is what I was looking for.

PostSubject: her   Mon Mar 28, 2011 10:15 pm

I believe it is now an adolescent teen boy

Today was a maiden voyage for what ever its new name is. Driving out of the Community I notice a CHP driving by, they never drive by. Take off out the gate 0-45 nice traction bar is good so 45 it is pop over the hill there he is old Mr CHP an I am doing the speed limit. If he was two minutes earlier I would of been pissed. He did not pull me over I guess I look like a Baja.

How to describe the car. You will never sneak up on anyone. It is totally drivable. I have to rebuild the carburetor and I have some new plugs to go in. Colder as per the book. I need gauges. I want to try my other boost gauge, it shows boost and vacuum. So you know its working. The Turbo is real big you have to be really in it for boost. That is not a bad thing. We boosted to around 5 lbs. I talked to Eric about unbolting the traction bar to relieve some stress on the rear of the motor. I am running three bolts it may be to bad on the motor but I don't want to break anything.

Tinker time

Now that the sun is out I was able to take this. I think the spring is broken between the accelerator pump and carburetor body. It is missing that little oomph.

It is time to order a book Turbomania from Amazon its an old but very good book. CB is out but Amazon has them. I have read two other turbo books but they were for water cooled motors. Aircooled is a little different and oh so expensive to make a mistake. scratch

Somehow I found 5 minutes to get the carburetor off and worked on the accelerator pump. Major difference I need some new silicone hoses the hoses are not liking the gas. The clamps are not the best standard worm hose clamps not the T clamps. So it looks like more money will take care of all the issues. Starts right up and its getting better.

I need to work on the HEI get some more timing out of it. I think its 8-10 degrees advancement so it maxes out around 20 plasma cutter time. I have a Chevy one I should take apart and see whats going on. That thing has so much voltage you gap the plugs like 50 I believe. I need to check what Chevy runs.

PostSubject: great news   Sun Apr 03, 2011 10:00 pm

My oil pressure gauge did not work and the light would come on ever once and a while. Pucker factor 9 plus. So I was running two senders on the Porsche one at the motor and one at the turbo. I pulled the motor sending unit and replaced with a stock sender. Put it in the bug and hallelujah oil pressure and no light coming on. Also traded boost gauges with the Porsche it shows vacuum and boost much better much better. Drove it to Dons house on the north side of the zoo and got a little boost going 5 lbs.

So the car is getting more drivable everyday. Some of you guys may not know this but you can drive it all day long and not get into boost. Remember back in the old days when you had an big V8 and you wanted to pass you put the pedal to the medal it would down shift to the passing gear and it would spring to life. Its just like that. And after you passed it cost you a quarter tank of gas it also just like that.

This week work on brakes. afro
