Got some items done last night.

Had to swap fuel line to the RH side so got some 5/16? hose from Napa. On the top side I followed Matt/Napalm?s writeup on using AN lines. I?m pretty happy with how they came out.

Oil filter housing with a 90 elbow so I can run an VDO oil pressure sender that I have setup already in the cabin. Just waiting for oil cooler lines and new radiator from RN.

Glencoyne engine mount on the RH side.



Turbo compressor outlet is a tight fit. I cut down a 2? silicone elbow I had. It?s close to the steering shaft but clears. Piping for this to the IC is going to be a bear.

Thanks I?ll update your other thread when I get a chance. I was going to weld a bung on to the banjo fitting but I ordered some parts and tried them and they worked well.

For some reason this engine had the temp sender missing. I couldn?t figure out what size thread here was. I found a bolt in the stash that fit. Cut it down drilled thru it and tapped for 1/8-27 NPT. Summit has a VDO sender in that size so hoping I can get it before Wednesday.

New timing belt and pulleys installed yesterday. I forgot to order the housing cover seal so I?ll see if Zack @ RN can get one for me.

I bought those copper nuts for the M10 studs and it was brutal just to get one on. Hard to get a wrench on those nuts with a lot of stuff missing so I decided to use Allen headed bolts with lock washers.

I started the downpipe. I ordered a stainless 3 bolt flange and used a 2.25? to 2.5? stainless adapter as I?m running 2.5? exhaust. The tricky part is getting around the engine mount and drain pipe for the turbo but once that?s done it should be straight forward underneath.

The downpipe was a bear. I ended up taking it to a dude that does a lot of resto-mod work.
