How'd you do at Nationals?


Finished about middle of the pack in my class. Not bad for a rushed run. I compete in sound quality competitions.

That grille mount looks much nicer with it machined out for clearance and mounted right on the frame.

I agree.. May take a chunk of rubber and make some kind of isolation bushing that will cover over the front axle nuts.

Bought this piece on eBay awhile back. Plan to use it for electrical control. Going to wire the coil pack and electric fuel pump to the eStop switch and the starter solenoid to the momentary push button. The selector switch will prbly be for accessories such as lights...

More prewiring done. Have to get another length of black pipe to end the oil drain where unwanted but done enough to add oil in. Fabbed up a block off plate for the old mechanical fuel pump location. Not as far as I would of hopped. But there's always another day. c105d1c10489807d436fc1a401ab1005.jpg89d504f156d5463da3432be39197d6f1.jpg

Replaced the spark plug wire terminals and plumbed up a new fuel system. Also finished the prewire of the control center. Almost ready to try to start this motor! 4c1566585b05fd995183099cefe10fa1.jpgee8f17ef19933e0a67b2c858d34a013f.jpg649af4c7d7545d1db8903c4e4a358f8b.jpg

Boo. Power to the coil. No spark from either plug. Coil pack bad? Anything I should check before replacing it? I know the new ends are crimped down on the fiber center strands of the plug wire... but may try testing the coil at the bare wire first?

Unsure on gap. Guess I should check. Rule of thumb seems to be a business card gap? Surfaces don't look bad. But I will wire brush it. Ran out of time for today.

Think I may have figured out my coil issue. I thought the coil needed pos power. But it's a ground kill lead.

It's alive!!!

 

Swapped the 12v+ to the coil that was wrong with the - from the kill switch. Then reset the gap after cleaning the surfaces... we had spark! Quick burst of starting fluid and there was ignition.. so I added some gas to the fuel system and gave it a go. Little learning curve with the choke and such, but damn it runs nice for sitting over 10 years. :)

Spent my lunch today inspecting the manual tranny.. Looks damn good. Gears have no defects and all the forks move freely. The reverse safety plunger thing on the shifter cap was stuck. Some penetration oil and it freed up.. Now I can find reverse! I also trimmed back the length of the shifter to make it easier to manage. Just a rough length at the moment. 

 

Next up will be fabricating the rest of the driveline to permanently set the motor/trans positioning. Then a battery box. Then onto the steering system.

Spent a couple hours in the shop today. Finished up the oil drain turndown. Set the hood and steering wheel for the heck of it. Looks like I'll have to extend the hood 8-10". I also unbolted the seat and created a support rail that bolts to the cross member and OE seat location. I will create some elongated mounting locations on the new seat support rail so I can move the seat forward or backward as needed.

Looks like the fuel tank should work out. I'll make up a rubber ended hard stop to ensure I don't bottom the seat out into the tank.... also going to run dual exhaust along side of ur frame rails. Lol. Have to order more parts now. Cast iron exhaust manifolds on the way... along with some new 1-3/8" J-Bends.
