(BUMP) Looking for a good wiring guy too.. Not my forte. Just doing some cleaning and going to get a DA sander and supply's and start the prep. I hope my old compressor is up for the challenge.

If you're wanting to go LH2.2, I may be able to help a little. I swapped my 242 which ended up running my wagon. Once you get all the parts together, it really isn't that bad. I swapped out a harness out of a 740 because it was a car that I stripped. I ran everything through the passenger side firewall. Powerstage, resister pack and everything. Takes some of the clutter out of the engine bay and tucks it under the dash.

Project looks great! More than I can say for my 142 still sitting at my in-laws' place

What are you going to do about the brake booster?

I've toyed with the idea of a remote booster, but even then, there's hardly enough room for the master cylinder. Blackie required a TON of custom-made brake lines (due to the 142-1800ES combo brake system), so I'm no stranger to bending up lines and making it all work.

I presume you went with a B20 oil pan and modified (shortened) oil pump pickup?

Curious to also see how you do the downpipe.

Hey Nick.. Yeah thanks, slow going but picking up steam... I have not solidly solved the break booster thing but I'm sure a 1800es would work. or it would look nice with a remote tucked under somewhere out of sight.. Im pulling the motor this week and redoing the pan and drilling proper oil drain and repainting eng block. Are you referring to the exhaust downpipe or oil return? For the exhaust I have the Ford thunderchicken wastgate that angels right down and out..

Why not just slant mount the motor?

By "proper oil drain" are you referring to drilling the block for the turbo drain-back?

Wilwood has some pretty nifty solutions for remote mounted reservoirs and boosters. Pricey, but worth it in the long run I think. Lord knows we both have a LOT of fabrication to do.

I might have issues with my DP... I only have the hot sides that stick straight out toward the rear, and I may have to do a very tight 90-degree bend, or cut into the firewall to lessen the bend.

Yeah, Im going to pull it drill it proper and I have all the hoses to make it work, I think..?

What turbo are you running? The Ford wastegate is cool see if you can find one, has the bung for the 02 as well..

Hi All.. UPDATE:

Like to get this baby done this winter, I have a 91 740 Wagon to sell to get this to the paint booth ASAP $1000 ALSO I had a back issue resonantly that has slowed me down a bit and looking for some help with some basic assembly and wiring skills. If you need a temp job and like to help me get this beastly beauty on the road and to Davis next year send me a PM. Bonus if you have done a B230FT swap in the past.

This is looking good. I'm currently on the fence about a B230 swap vs. a mildly built up B20 for my '68 142. I'm also curious what you're doing about the brake booster/MC. Surely you are planning to use a different manifold?
