Pull all your pictures off Photobucket. Make an imgur account. And go through and relink all of them. It was terrible and time consuming. It would be awesome to see your car though.

Where in Michigan are you? My old lady has family in Gaylord. We visited in February. It was the coldest I've ever experienced. Ice fishing was great too.

Beautiful. Like how the stands allow you to join the engine and trans.

Added a cam bracket I whipped up

Yep it’s “custom”



And in she goes




The ugly duckling downpipe fits well with the angle flange 16t!

Thank you! Yep that box was a handy tool to build. It is just a sturdy wood box I set on two HF 1000# dollies. I store exhaust manifolds, etc in it for ballast.

So I pulled out the lh2.4 harness and did some cleaning and inspection


It needed just one repair


That’s better!

Even though life gets in the way, I’m working toward the finish line! Fabricated and installed the downpipe and connected to the TME exhaust.

Bought the angle flange dp off this board and modified it...



She was ugly but I liked her so I added an extension and a dress...



She looks great! (I think...)



Added a flex and ran 3” back to the rear floor area







More to come!

I was wondering when we would see an update on your build. Looking good.

Thanks! Yep life gets pretty busy with a large family and work and volunteering. But I promised my better half I’d get it done. I finished four other projects in 2018 and my goal is this one by next summer.

Just a gentle suggestion..You might give some thought to rotating the fancy clampie things to say 3 or 9 O'clock and maybe at same time re-orient the u-bolts so they are like C that so the ends sticking out don't do something naughty.

When the fancy clampie things are the lowest thing on the whole car, you know they're going to get whacked..

So I spent more time than I’d like setting up the efan and radiator mounts, but it’s solid and incorporated into a 740 shroud for easy removal (2 bolts and shroud and fan come out as one). Should do the job. The fan was in the car and activated by a dash switch when I got it. I repurposed it since it works, fits well and should do the job. It’s a single speed unit.



I used custom nuts I ground down to fit the fan mounts and stainless bolts with spacers cut from pex tubing and semi-permanent loctite on the threads.

Some underbody shots; new fuel pump (both wires leading to it were bare and shorting out)



Rotated the band clamp for clearance



My friend Alejandro (Slicknerd) came over and we worked on his 244 a bit

One ding from the tarmac and the nuts won't want to spin off the knackered threads.
