So does this count as your 4th car ever?

The Full Banana 06-05-2015 03:35 PM

Is charisma the theme of the thread or the name for the car? Because if the latter... that's quite the stripper you have there.

Looking forward to seeing more development with this car.

Jerd 06-05-2015 03:42 PM

Lets just say i'm prepared to make it rain on her. :P

Welcome back to the bright side, to what do we owe the honor?

Jerd 06-05-2015 07:31 PM

Me not liking 940s is the main reason i got this back. Also fits my lifestyle better, i like to get out.

Tuff240 06-05-2015 07:58 PM

You're an idiot! I can't believe you lifted a 240. Absolutely ruined it...

Hahaha I had some inspiration from one or two others before I decided to give it a go. :-P

PDX240 06-05-2015 11:30 PM

Where'd the lower trim go?

Jerd 06-06-2015 12:13 AM

Half of it was falling off and i ripped the other half off.

slow240 06-06-2015 08:08 AM

Why, did you like how horrible mine looked sky high on stock style suspension?

Looks better than a crippled wagon to me.

slow240 06-06-2015 01:01 PM

My wagons suspension is still bone stock, I love the way it rides, I want my sedan higher.

The shipyard I work at floods a lot, 10" of ground clearance sounds nice.

You never grabbed that sunroof switch (which is still waiting for you in my work bag...) and other bits for your 940. Would have made all the difference you senseless bastard.

DCOE 240 06-07-2015 09:18 PM

I always wanted to build a baja 500 245

Nothing will make the difference for a grandpa car except the inevitable crushing.

I hated that car...

amerbritcan 06-08-2015 01:03 AM

I had genital grabbers on my jeep. They were uncomfortable.

NICE! I have one from a 3.8 Camaro (non WC). I'm hoping I'll find something nicer by the time I break 2 M47's and 2 m46's I have too.

Jerd 06-12-2015 10:06 PM

Sold the 2 piece driveshaft, going to do a 1 piece setup to cut some cost. Selling the 6 puck clutch to replace with a full face disc from clutchnet. And im trying to source late model 4.10 ring and pinion.

I hope that the gear ratios will play out. I know this t5 is tall and with bigger tires im kinda worried that 4.10s wont be enough....

Tuff240 06-12-2015 11:28 PM

Good luck finding a 4:10 1031 r&p. none of the 83+ cars came with them unless they special ordered them.

Edit: Check with Roy, maybe 7/9's had them? 91 Bertone rings a bell.

I know for sure that 93-94 N/A 940s had the 4.10

N/A 700/9 4cyl have a 4.10 1031.

Resetting the pinion depth in another axle housing though...that's...work.

I have a 3.91 1031, but no speed sensor ('84 244 Jurbo Automagic).

Jerd 06-13-2015 01:55 PM

Just bought one of the twins flat flywheels with the 60-2 trigger.

AW70's 4th gear is .69
Im like 98% sure this t5 is .63 5th

My tires are 27" tall.
3.73s and the aw70 im doing 70mph at 2,230rpm
4.10s and the T5 5th im doing 70mph at 2,260rpm

So im thinking 4.10s will be fine. I have a set, im just not sure if they are 1030 or 1031.

Here is the predicted speed with 4.10s at redline.

Jerd 06-13-2015 03:09 PM

I just realized the 4.10(4.11?) gearset i have had for like 3 years is for 1031 axle.

Jerd 06-18-2015 10:55 PM

Got my flywheel from Scott. Mill work looks top notch and he even blasted the thing to remove the bulk of the rust. In my opinion this is the way to go for a flywheel. Buy one before they are no longer available.

A 94 945 N/A car I had to fix had 4.10's in it. Not sure if thats a 1031 or not.

1031 and 1041 rear ends use the same ring and pinion.

Jerd 07-08-2015 11:25 PM

Bought a yoshifab driveshaft adapter off the guy i sold the 2 piece shaft to.

In other news, rear shocks are ****, don't buy pro comps... Cant wait to get the bilsteins installed. Got some spare trailing arms that i want to weld up some shock mounts to so i can adjust rear shock placement.

Car idles like **** since i bought it back. Thought it would be an easy fix. Found a few vac leaks but that did not help. Checked the fuel pressure, thats fine. I hate troubleshooting sometimes. The guy did a bunch of work to the engine, head gasket, timing belt, oil seals, b-cam, etc. So figuring out what he did wrong is going to be fun...

as far as installing the 4.10 ring and pinion, dan is thinking it would be much easier to find an entire carrier/pinion to swap instead of putting the gearset i have on my carrier.

Jerd 07-08-2015 11:27 PM

And heres an old picture just for fun.
