Yes and Yes, the wagon is junk, everyone thinks its great cause it was painted <2 years ago and looks nice. But it was painted right over bondo and is really not great.

Hmm, I suck, can you tell this is my first real rebuild? I put the crank, rods, pistons in. Figured it wouldn't matter if I put the intermediate shaft in after those, but nope wrong. I installed new bearings for the intermediate shaft, and did it myself. Now I find out they have to be line bored after you install them. They don't actually fit around the intermediate shaft. So I removed everything, and I'm back to a bare block, ready to go back to the machine shop. Damn!

Nice...



****.


Apparently I have the 4 cyl trans, which for whatever reason in my head thought I had the V8, looks like it will have better ratios, 3.50 first and a .78 5th. But still, probably should have looked into it more before buying the trans without the tag on it. But I got a steal of a deal when I bought it so whatever, and its fresh internals are good.

Anyway, since the V8 bearing doesn't fit I have to get a bearing from a 1984 Diesel Ford Ranger. Outer Diameter of the V8 inner diameter of the 4cyl trans. Unless someone has a part number for a non OEM version of the bearing? Bore=0.5906", Outer Diameter=1.378", Width=0.4331" Anyone, anyone? I need to shorten the input shaft length by 0.2" as well. Sweet.

Speed Bumps!

The standard size is 6003 for a T5 swap with a V8 box, or 17x35x10. You need a 6202-2rs or a 15x35x11. I don't think the extra milimeter in thickness will be a problem and you should be able to get this bearing from any industrial retailer around you.

Beauty, just the answer I was looking for. Roger pulls through again.
I figured out where the confusion came from. I somewhere had it in my head that all 10 spline were V8.

When you say the extra millimeter in thickness, you referring to the shaft length? As in I don't have to hack off the end, or does 5mm still have to come off?

Two steps forward one step back. Shimming the cam today with the iPd kit.. Well most of them worked perfectly with the smallest in the kit(3.30mm) except for one, which was touching the shim at all times.. Back to the machine shop with the head. They have to take a bit off the valve.

Nothing really I could do. Such a pain. A few days behind again. Saving a few bucks by not having the shims put In by the shop, so much for that!

So much car work and exams, kill me.

Dropped the motor in today, now I don't know what to do, a bunch of little stuff to get done/made.

Exhaust manifold needs a wastegate welded on, driveshaft needs to be made, need to find an intercooler now that I find my friends is too large. Running out of time.

Proof of progress. I bring my good camera, then I don't use it cause my hands are too dirty, then today I use my phone. I suck

Made some oil lines - I hate doing these, and my drain is too short, time to redo it.


Made a trans mount I'm quite pleased with. used a 4x8" piece of 1/4" steel, didn't feel like cutting it to 4x6".
First I drilled the holes on my drill press, put bolted everything up, crossmember everything, jacked the plate into the cross member and tacked a few welds, so that it was perfectly lined up, then I took everything off and welded the rest.








I had to add spacers to the trans part of the mount, shouldn't be a problem? They're nice and beefy, I cut up some old wrist pins.
Anyone know how I should measure the half driveshaft?

And here she is, waiting for more and more parts.





Things to do before May:
Intercooler and piping
Finish oil lines.
Get driveshaft made.
MS.
Maybe E-fan

Maybe... Thats the plan though.

Met up with Biesey today, sold me a Evo 8 intercooler! Randomly messaged me asking if I needed one, which is crazy cause just a day before I was looking for one on kijiji, which turned up dry.

Immediately got back and started messing with it, got it pretty much mounted how I want it, and now just trying out some piping and crappy connectors my friend had laying around. It won't be as pictured I was just mid experimentation when I took them.
Since the intercooler still had the mounting tabs on it, I used that to my advantage, bent the bottom one straight down, which is now flat and perfect height to be bolted below, and the top has three tabs that can be bolted near the upper rad support.

I really need to stop using my phone to take pictures.





Rad fits perfectly in front. Now just need to mount the oil cooler and that stuff should be done.

Making a bracket for my oil cooler, but It might be too low, will have to see when I install it.
Its the metal thing under my intercooler.






Nice amount of clearance here!


Wrinkle paint Came out awesome.










Not much progress, the front is pretty much done, thought thread deserved some higher quality pictures. By done I mean, the custom stuff not the bumper, lights, etc.. hahaha

Ha, yeah Well It pretty much fit itself in there, so I couldn't help it. I'm trying to think of the best way to get that manifold welded. Picking up the parts today or tomorrow for it. Should I mock it up and bring it out?

That is not frost! Its grime from the engine bay when I spent a day pressure washing it hahah, as you can see, engine bay comes first, then body cleanliness.
I would like to think the days of frost are over, but unfortunately who knows around here.

Yeah, that would work fine.
Friday afternoons or Sundays work best for me.

Its amazing how well it works.

Got the modified driveshaft back today and installed it. The inner seal came loose when I mistakenly used the inside to push the other support bearing off(thought it was solid). Now its loose inside driveshaft and It cant come out without cutting it in half, major pain in the ass and I'm pissed it happened. I'm leaving it for now since I have to move the car from my friends place this Sunday. It hopefully shouldn't be an issue other than making a noise a low speed.

Filled transmission and added the new shifter. Hopefully finish some wiring tomorrow. Maybe start it with just the manifold on. I doubt I will get that far though!
