I still need to model the uprights, found this software called 123D Catch that allowed me to use my phone as a 3D scanner, it looks okay, no idea how accurate, will find out soon.



Adjustable heim joints for the rear suspension....1/2" for the upper arms and 7/8" for the lower arms (lower arms take more abuse on these uprights)

I'm also working on my Bridgeport mill, replacing the variable ratio pulleys with a standard pulley setup. Since I have a VFD running the spindle motor I can have the software change the rpms.

As usual, I screw something up, I broached for a 3/8 keyway when instead it was 5/16, so a stepped key is in order. Since the mill is down, I had to modify one and cut it on my lathe.

CNC mill is up and running again, still need to program the VFD and wire it up to my breakout board and then program Mach 3 to control it, sometime this week.

More new parts for the Volvo, picked up my brand new axles today, these will be used until I finish the 930 CV joint mod which is on hold until I do some work to my lathe.

220v 1 input, 220v 3 output, with my motor I can turn it up to 120hz to get over 5K spindle speed which would be nice with some carbide end mills!

That 123 catch looks interesting, what file format do you get the parts in?

3d imaging protip. Use a monotone back drop preferably dark to be the background when doing that type of stuff. it makes post processing much easier.

Picked up a donor vehicle today, 744 Turbo Diesel, low miles, fuel system problems, hopefully minor, if not, I have a few spare parts I've been stocking up on lately.

Car was taken care of, not bad shape for how old it is. The interior is nice as well. I'd drive as a daily if the chassis was not spoken for already.

I got home around 6pm and started the process of taking out the motor and transmission, 12am now and time to go to bed. I think everything is loose or disconnected.

In the morning I'll put my cherry picker together and attempt to pull the motor out, then go deliver the chassis to it's new owner.

Yep, pretty much committed now.....

8:30AM this was on my driveway....heavy sucker to pull out by myself, but I got it done.

About 1/2 hour later Shane showed up and helped me push it up the driveway into the other garage space.

The exhaust all appears to be fairly new, Walker muffler, no idea if stock diameter or not, not quite 3"..will have to measure.

Now to pick up an intercooler since in was an non-intercooled car.

Dropped the chassis off to it's new owner this morning as well.

So this is what you've been up to.
This thing is going to handle quite well for the low HP it's going to have.

With this heavy lump, not too sure how it will handle!

I'm guessing it might want to understeer quite a bit....we'll see.

So when you convert diesel, how hard is it get your car emissions exempt?

Easy peasy. There have been rumors that you can get away with not even having the car there. Just stating that you swapped it over.

Having been to the ref, I would not bank on that, but going to the ref costs $50, and is real easy.

You don't have to go to the ref. Just the DMV.

From what I understand they look for any signs of it still being a spark ignition engine. If so, it will fail. (coil, spark plug wires??)

Since they'll be able to hear it idling from outside the building they'll believe it's a diesel.

Last time YoshiFab took a legitimate diesel car to the DMV, they didn't even ask to see it.

No, that is going up for sale or to the recycling depot for my .10 a pound

Will one of the 2 M46 transmissions I have unless I get motivated to make another T5 adapter plate (unless my redblock adapter plate I made will work)
