Finally got the car down to the shop and got a little more done today. Slowly working up to getting the motor in. Should have the rest of the old tunnel cut out and the new tunnel riveted in tomorrow. I'll get it welded sooner than later. I'm really excited about the short shifter. I think it's really going to feel like a different car. I can't even believe it's getting this close to being running again. It only spent one season off the road!

Got the tunnel to fit down on the old one. It's still gonna need some tweaking and some relief cuts but it should fit in there nicely when it's all done. I have to get the engine in first so I can see where my shifter is going to sit when it's all done.

It won't be making it to this one either. The engine isn't even in and it will still need an exhaust after that. So, unfortunately, the wagon is coming. Maybe next week it will run again?

Thanks Chris! Maybe you can answer this: is there a B20-specific heater hose that connects the upper outlet on the heater core to the water return that runs back to the front of the block? I bought the molded 90* hose but this engine came with a water return that is shaped a little different and rather than swap this pipe for my old one I'd like to just get the correct hose. This engine was from a '74 140.

You need to turn the 90 degree elbow in the back of the head and use the water pipe from the pump that came off the B18.

And it looks like you're using a bottom hose at the top of the rad......

Plus I think I put that one up there on the wrong pipe from the heater core, correct? Shouldn't it run to the upper one?

It's not pushed down on the thermostat housing. I have a new replacement for that but I had to cut out early for the day.

Then yes, I have it installed incorrectly . That would explain why the 90* heater hose doesn't want to reach the elbow at the back of the head. I will swap out the return pipes this weekend.

If the engine came out of a 140 then you just stick a bar in the 90 degree elbow and turn it a bit further, the thread is tapered so it'll go. It shouldn't need much force.

Yeah I did that but the hose was still just a little too short. Probably because I was trying to run it from the top connector instead of the bottom.

Well the engine ran for the first time yesterday. Sounds good. Need to change the oil, retorque the head, readjust valves, and fix exhaust misalignment. It's rattling on the floor and so so annoying. Possible vids later. But probably not.

Also picked up some Style 5s today for what I considered to be a a good deal. $400 for the set. Tires are no good. They need a little refinishing work but all are straight. I'll either redrill to 4.5 or see if I could trade centers with someone. Color is undecided yet but I'll most likely go for something dark.

Those are the specs exactly! I'm just going to swap the 205/50s from the TSWs over once the BBS are done. I think next time I have to buy tires I'll go with 215/45 or 225/45.

Eventually. The Style 5s will need some work and a re-drill. The rest of my money for the next month is going into getting the car ready for Carlisle.

Plus after I get them refinished I might see if there's any interest in trading them for some LMs. I like those better
