During this weekend I got the alternator mounted, was a bit difficult to do from alloy because I don't own a tig. So made pieces at home, then went to friend and he did tack pieces together and then back to home to make sure everything fits and then back to friend for full seams.. :rofl:

So here are the result, not pretty but will do what they should do..

Checking the aligment..

Alternator bolted to place. Manifold needs some heatwrap around couple first cylinders and maybe somekind of heatshield between manifold and alternator..

Small update guys..

Got new starter from sbdmotorsport for smaller 268mm flywheel (2.1kg which takes 5.5" clutch)
_medium.jpg
_medium.jpg

Started making water pipes from 38mm alloy pipe. Lower pipe still needs An10 fitting for hose coming from expansion tank and upper pipe a bracket to hold it in place securely. Will be using that original engine mount point, this way I don't need to machine it off.
_medium.jpg

Fabricated upper mount for the radiator, which also makes all the air go through the rad. Made also side plates for same purpose.
_medium.jpg
_medium.jpg

Got Revotec's 15.2" fan which should flow 1800cfm. Will fabricate box behind the rad to mount the fan and also get more flow through the rad when fan is on.

Hi again, something small done, slowly getting there..

Made somekind of radiator fan mounting box. Not pretty, but needs a bit sanding and black paint, like all other parts too :)

Then made from 2mm alloy breather tank to inner wing in the trunk. Capacity should be around 2-3litres. I know, it looks a bit strange shaped, but so does everything else in this car :D Still need to make some kind of sight to see how full the tank is and also drain line outside the car from bottom of the tank.

Upper coolant pipe now has bracket and lower pipe has line coming from expansion tank. Still need to make that line from pump to block.

Thank you all :)

 

Not decided with that heat shield yet, maybe I will fabricate somekind of housing back of the alternator and piping for fresh air. Also will be wrapping couple first cylinder pipes with heatwrap. Will see what I will come up with :D

Still haven't bought new camera, so shit pictures coming..

Steering rack tacked in place where it should be, drysump scavenge lines need modification to clear steering axle coming straight back.

And here is the front cross member all finished up, scrappy work I know, but I just need to live with it.. :lol:

Some testing with control arm and strut in place
_medium.jpg

Here is almost the desired ride height, steering arm needs a bit cranking downwards..
_medium.jpg

Tarmac bilsteins are almost bottoming out in this height already and car will be a bit lower from this still..

I had the exhaust manifolds on both my classic Fords ceramic coated, the mk1 by Camcoat and the mk2 Zircotec. Both seem very effective At reducing under bonnet temperature. Probably somewhere local to you can do something similar.

Yeah, ceramic coating is also avaible here. Would be nice to coat the manifold inside and out with it..

 

Got sensor for e85 (gm continental), this works straight with DTA.

Hi guys, something small happened again.. :)

Got Audi vacuum pump for 2x remote servo's (needed to get MOT pass here in Finland)
_medium.jpg

I mounted the servo's where the back seat used to be
_medium.jpg

Because I have electric vacuum pump, I can switch servo's off example when going to race track to get better feel of the brakes :P

Also finally bought pipe bender, so I can start making fluid lines under the car now..
_medium.jpg

SBDMotorsport sended new crank pulley and also crank sensor
_medium.jpg

...and blanking plate for thermostat housing
_medium.jpg

Started to make oil cooler fluid lines under the car, they are almost done. Couple silly curves in them, but what can you except from guy like me :D

Rolled the arches little bit, still need to buy 225/45x15 r888 to the rear to see how much more is needed.
_medium.jpg

Also have been working with the head too. Bought 1mm bigger supertech valves and started to port the head too from inlet manifold and exhaust faces. Local head guru will be doing valve seats and openings, just need to buy camshafts etc for him to do valve lash adjustment at the same time too.. After that it's pretty much done. Friend of mine did weld that egr takeoff shut.
