Today I also learned that there is no cam seal on the intake cam of the B6304S. The cap itself is the seal. That OTP DVD is worth it's weight in gold .

Tomorrow I'll get the cams lined up perfectly, then put the timing belt on. Hopefully I can still work with the door open!

Nice car, really like what you are doing. Curious how you'll like the difference between Turbo and NA!
I'm happy it isn't that cold here!

Thanks! I'm wondering about that too, especially since this is the largest displacement engine I've ever had in a car. I guess I'll find out . We're in the middle of a melt, so I'm taking advantage of the warmer temps. It'll go back to -20*C-ish next week I'm sure. I've got propane for the heater though, so I'm ready.

Did the timing belt on the B6304 today, which meant making a cam lock tool, because I just don't trust the terrible marks on the cam gears. I ended up being a tooth off (at the crank), but the gears adjusted just enough to bring it back to proper .

I've been plugging away, and it's winter, so progress is slow. I DID get these though...



My Homer mounts have been cut, so next step is rounding up some 960 fluid filled mounts.

I needed a cam seal/plug, but didn't feel like buying the disposible kind. Bought some aluminum stock for cheap from the scrap room at the local metal place, and 'borrowed' time on the metal lathe at work. Good practice, and it's the first thing I've ever really made. Fits pretty good, so now I need to find an appropriately sized O-ring.

Deeworks.ca makes one, and it's waaaaaaaaaaay nicer than mine, but I figured it'd be fun to try .

A shot of the back. I even put in an o-ring groove.
