Time for some more happy items to come into the thread.

Small update. More like a list of things to do or need to order.

Engine related:

First on the list. The crank pulley is in the que at the machinist. I might have it by mid February. Just guessing. He was busy, but he is clearing his list.

Second on the list. Big bore B20 block with street performance in mind. Nothing crazy. Engine is in the que, but it will be done depending on parts arrival times... etc.

Third on the list. Fuel system research. Mostly me looking around for parts to compliment the addition of a few psi.

Forth on the list: complete supercharger bracket and tensioner design. Order pulley belt.

Fifth on the list: fabricate the intake piping and brackets, as well as, the supercharger bypass valve wiring and electronic control setup.

Suspension and brakes Related:

Sixth on the list: Rear R brake setup to compliment the front R brakes. The car is way too front bias even with the proportionate valve removed. Slotted rotors all around and some ferodo pads should be a blast. I have all the parts needed to swap the rear brake, except the rotors, and pads.

Interior and miscellaneous stuff

Seventh on the list: Finish the interior wiring.



That's it. Then this project will be completed.

Not sure why I hadn't see this car yet. You've done everything just right! Props dude. What width wheels are those?

This car is like a stubborn little kid.

It decided to say **** you. I'm not leaving your street.

Lower alternator bolt sheared off. The oil is coming out breather box thing.
The engine is making a new sound now. This engine is coming out of the car. And sitting in the drive way until the new one comes in.

I'm so pissed. This engine was apart for a year and it wasn't rebuilt then. Nothing more I hate than wasting time.

No Davis this year...again.

Are you or were you getting front brake squeal when braking at really slow speeds?

These pads and rotors are the junk that came in the IPD kit. They don't squeal. Only sometimes, like once in a month.


Alternator fixed. Gonna look at the engine Saturday. Might still make the trip... we will see.

Just noticed pb stopped hosting 3rd party.

I'll have to delete my account with them.

Not sure when I'll update the images links.

Images should be updated soon... for the time being, you can view the story here: https://www.projectmoro.com/1975-242

Finally fixed most of the images in the thread.

Update....

Have been prepping the bay for the new engine. Cleaning all the oil and coolant spray from the old engine and radiator.


Finding a belt to fit.... This is the easiest way to route the belt for now.




Test fitting the intercooler.













punching some holes













Almost ready to drop in the new engine and break it in! Gonna run it NA for a bit. Then Ill add the supercharger. But I am finishing all the stuff I can without the engine in the car for now.

Great to see it's moving along. Thanks for fixing the pics!

With 9:1 compression and 2.1L, what do you expect in terms of NA power from this engine - maybe 125hp? I am no expert in pushrod Volvo performance tuning but I'm always interested to see what can be done with these. My green '75 wagon still has a B20F which might be fun to boost at some point.

Thank Duder! Yeah, same here... no expert... Probably somewhere around 130. maybe I will baseline the engine na. then see what everything else adds.
The stock cr is like 8.7 with kjet is around 110 hp no cat factory. which would be fun to boost. I'm playing with the idea of compound charging it at some point... Still have the stock exhaust manifold I will probably get ready to add a turbo

Almost done with everything I can get done with the engine out... ready to drop the engine next weekend probably and break it in.

Putting an idler in the tension side of the belt is not going to work in the long run (especially with a small diameter pulley/roller). The small diameter idler is not compatible with a VRib belt that is a gilmer belt idler and it will not hold up on the tension side (loadwise) (the VRib belt will not like being bent backwards sharply either) and due to the run length of the belt will likely jump off the roller.

You need to run the belt like this with the larger diameter idler (with side ribs to keep belt centered on the pulley due to the run length) on the slack side



I realize you will need to rotate that intake elbow 90° (looks like it needs to be moved either way) but that is the best solution.
The belt setup you pictured will not last, I expect it won't make it out of the driveway.
In my design the idler pulley position may need to be moved closer to the small pulley to provide more belt wrap to help with belt slippage.
If the idler is located close to another pulley it won't need side rails.
Minimum idler diameter on the back side would be 3" with less than 45° wrap.
More wrap than 45°, the idler diameter should be increased.

I was only looking at the belt path. That was not how I was doing the tensioner. Already finished the belt stuff for this version. I am probably going to make my own tensioner also once I install. Thank you for the concern.

Update:

Engine was dropped in, cam broken in, and engine was broken in. I have been driving it now for a couple weeks putting some miles on it.

















Cam Break in











Ready for boost!



Also, added the missing part from the lower bumper I never put on...





We noticed there was oil leaking.











Stupid me forgot to let Ian and Eric know that the old pan (reused on this engine) had oil leaking through the bolt holes.

We solved that issue (made a gasket and added more silicone at each pan bolt).






Brand New Injectors:




After 2 weeks of driving. Video not embedding...

https://youtu.be/tglxyqVILVI

I am going to redo the exhaust system in the new year.


After driving for another week, the transmission leak got really bad. I towed it Home. Super awesome guy and company!













That's all for now.

Ordered parts to fix the transmission leak and change the speedo gear. New engine has about 300 miles now.

More to come in the New Year!
