    I knew what you were making, I was stuck on what you'll be making with what you're making.
    "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

    Really? Was it not obvious that he's making bending dies?

    Since thundercunt has fucked off out of my shed and it has become apparent that the state of current motor oil pressure doing hot laps at go to whoa idiot light was being lit at idle towards the end.
    When oil was hot.
    It is running penrite 40-70 with a bottle of Moreys oil stabilizer so pretty much diff oil viscosity to keep pressure up.

    That's with a modded pump (ported and shimmed) and also puking oil out of the rocker cover.

    So before yanking pos motor I'm trying to figure out a good pcv system setup for the 55.

    I can build custom catch cans that was planning on jamming in behind inner guards and cab to hide and make room for heat exchanger and oil cooler up front.


    Ps photographer from the event supposedly got a good pic of this haven't seen it yet but will stick it in here when I acquire a copy.

    Nopics was hand holding go pro haven't pulled that off it yet will try when I get home from work.

    I need a name change. Like we talked about i think a central breather from intake will help rather than sending it up to the heads.

    Yeah always been planing on that. Im hoping i can fit along the lines of 1 1/2- 2 something .
    Maybe even also at the fuel pump block off plate.
    Will be draining/venting rocker covers to sump with dash 10 or 12 lines so that will help a fair bit too...

    Been looking into a smog pump type setup with an electric pump like on a LT1 or some such.

    Im sick of it pissing oil out the rocker covers and will be using cast ally covers

    Local car show and go to woha is 2 years away and the fact that this thing got beat by a fucking patrol on big 35inch 4wd tires has suitably pissed me off.
    OK Patrol with a played with duramax, auto and a coarse that was all up ~80m.

    One thing that this ol girl has missed in the options on delivery was traction it would seem... As i could keep the tires lit no problems until i had to throw the anchor out the window hehe was kinda fun though power skidding and certainly surprised a few people . It has p zero pirelli tires on it and really needs something a lot stickier ...

    So best thing to do is add more power right

    So shit is getting real last pics before all this has started.

    Mind the red flecks of orange paint i had just blasted it and degreased it from underneath with the pressure cleaner.







    The radiator support has been bugging me for years and is a typical rust spot for these it did get replaced with a better one when it got painted but that was like 17years ago lol.







    Since Radiator support needed to come out anyway it made it some what easier to yank drive line...



    Hmm a metric fuck tonne of exhaust piping.




    After pulling passenger rocker cover and dissy and undoing a few bolts it was very little effort to drop this steaming pile of motor on the ground.




    In all honesty if i fixed the oil leak which i found in the end to be the dissy decent set of rocker covers and new cam bearings this thing would be ready for another round....



    Ever since i bought this shit box have always wanted to clean up underneath this turd so it has become that time so have even pulled the fuel tank,
    Being a country car /Farm ute it had seen its fair share of gravel roads as can be seen by the mud and grime that is still evident.




    My ever increasing list of shit to be done...

    Have acquired a similar kit


    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Aluminiu...MAAOSwFGNWTaho

    Edit looks a lot closer to this one.

    https://m.ebay.com.au/itm/Premium-Al...377?nav=SEARCH

    Should work in the eventual fitment if i can be bothered.

    Well after a long hiatus oil pan is getting some love

    Setting the height i want was 2 pieces of scrap i had laying on the welding bench which im guessing is 3mm or 1/8. 2 bits stacked looked about right.


    Then marked were to make exit.
    Drilled hole and trimmed pickup to size hopefully after marking a spot that clears starter enough to be installed.
    After thinking about it ill get some female threaded bsp fitting to weld in rather then an12 fitting i was going to use.


    Bent up a little bracket that should hold things in place.

    Might make another one on the other side and trim the width a little.

    Modified the bolt in nature of the whiteline rear sway bar so could use the oem tags on the diff.
    Just need to make some rectangular nuts probably weld them into place.
    Having to redrill the mounting brackets will have to make a washer type of thing that clamps properly as new holes encroach into supplied bracket holes



    The shock flaps im lead to believe were part of the outback pack that was optioned on this shit box from new.

    The start of traction and handling aid system bracketry...

    More of the sump and oil pickup had a bit more of a chance to do a bit more on the weekend between chores ...



    Location of oil pickup and exit.



    And have put some sockets in for the breathers from the heads/rocker covers


    For the new pipe work i am undecided so have added an extra return point for the scavenge pump/turbo return and easy enough to block unused one.


    Oil pump needs some more attention now as pickup has been plugged in the block. So first thing need to make a point suitable for a 12an fitting to be accepted.


    Then make a brand new oil pump pretty much never be the same again...by drilling a 22mm hole in it...
    [/url]

    Then of coarse drill some more holes just for good measure...


    My morse taper drill set goes in 2mm jumps from 14-30mm so my boring head was used to bore a 21mm hole for a 5/8 bspp tap.



    Then used a centre punch in the and nopics to hold a constant pressure on the tap so it would tap nice and square.


    So was looking good untill uncle bozo come around and made an appearance...so started again on it and drilled and tapped as per last time. But this time used a 6mm end mill to do a lap around the part.


    Then just bandsawed the unused section away.


    Just had some little bits to clean up with the file and knock off the sharp edges.


    Bolted the plate on and ran the tap through to just make sure it is threaded all the way through as i had drilled the housing 22mm it did cut a little bit still.


    Just needs to cleaned again gasket / sealant under the plate bit of vaso and can be slapped on the ol bitch.
    When i need the full catalogue order of speedflow goodness to be installed it can now be plumbed in 12an hose. As you can see in edo spec pic would only be ~5mm of cast iron so this should help considerably. If all else fails it will look the business i guess.

    External pickup like Struggler's engine build thread?

    Should go full tilt with adjustable bolt for spring instead of shim.

    Very cool!
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    Yes external pickup havent seen struggler's thread though.

    Pickup route in the block has like 120 degree bend just before the pump and along with oil pickup not going to work with the girdle.
    Was the only logical option have made this sump hold around 7.5 -8 litres so that will be a bonous also.

    Yep have been thinking about doing the adjustable bypass along with oil cooler system and a vertical remote mounted oil filter...

    Yep they is stupid heads if they weren't so greedy and they charged gold coin amounts a month most people would be happy enough to comply asshats...

    Yep you convinced me on the adjustable bypass so went hunting through my pile of imperial shit and found on old arp stud and nut which is 7/16 unf.
    Which works out fairly good as the outer of the spring is 7/16. I liked the thought of being able to finely adjust if necessary.

    So drilled 9.9mm or my closest to which is a 10mm drill bit and banged a tap through it.



    Parted it off to length and made a shoulder that will hold the inner of the spring in place.


    Installed the nut on but will need a copper or fiber washer to mitigate it leaking or might make a washer with a recess for an oring.

    Have just about got the sump ready for welding together with the pickup finally welded into position.
    I jammed a 5mm thick offcut in between the sump floor and pickup when i welded too make sure it stayed in the correct position just have to weld the sump plug socket in.





    Have started repairing the main damage is in the floor that being mainly limited to a few dents in the reinforcing section in the floor ...

    .

    Have decided to throw my mock up motor and the rest of the driveline in, in readiness for measuring and building stuff.




    Traction aid / handling aid have started by making a end piece and centered ,drilled and taped a hole and flatten a section in readiness to weld. Have made the piece to accept HQ-WB Holden leaf spring bushes for simplicity of parts later on.


    Here comes the weird bit ... Needed a joint that can rotate and telescope a little without much slop if any.
    So a bit of thinking i went to the hydraulic specialist being knowing that hydraulic shaft is a precision ground ,hardened ,chrome shaft is generally 4140 or similar steel so nice and strong and perfect for my application. Smallest stuff they had on the shelf was ~35mm nope too big and heavy. Right next option that is similar material is a pin from a earth-moving pivot joint being that i have a bobcat that has pivot joints and a contact for consumables i bought a pin for an excavator @25mm diameter by 250mm long for ~$50.

    So first thing i do is bang it in the lathe and machine some hardened section off so i can part off desired length weld without the chrome contaminating and tap same size as rod end.




    Put the bolt in and just tightened it up parted it off



    It just threads the rod end on so that its pulled up tight ,square and centered correctly


    Burnt in place


    Started making the bushing in delrin have made the clearance of ~ 0.1 -0.05mm have some more delrin coming may make it a bit tighter fit think ill see how it goes. Feels ok but there is a slight wiggle there i am concerning about.
    Ill make it a slight press fit into the bushing so may work at compressing it a little bit.

    The sleeve for the delrin bushing and excavator pin...

    Started with a lump of ~63mm shaft and drilled a 30mm hole straight up the guts then bored a section either end to ~35 mm as internal circlip set is metric and jumps 35 -40mm the delrin i have is 40mm i wanted to machine some off so i could make sure of a correct fit.



    Being steel is rather hefty decided it needed some lightening to ~ 5mm wall thickness.



    As mentioned previously wanted a lightish press fit so aimed for an interference fit of 0.075-0.1mm then pressed them into the bore.


    Had machined the delrin bushing to have .05 -.1mm clearance before pressing it tightned up to a bit more then that under size...I suspected it might but didn't think it would that much will press out again when it comes to final welding and remeasure for accurate dimensions to machine to.

    Plus i want to put a spiral in for a lubricant path as well so may just make a complete bushing



    Rinse and repeat on the other end.



    Put a few drops of chain and bar oil on the shaft with no slop and holds air pressure resistance when moving in a reciprocating motion and feels like fluid like motion.

    Continuing with the theme of using shit i have stashed about the place.

    Transport bracketry from the hoist got attacked by the plasma to make some bracketry for the lower section of the the diff mount.



    Bracket out of said brackets tacked up.



    Made a bit of a jig to line things up and hold square.



    Welded in place ready to be bolted back in...

    Started looking into them and thought that i might be able to stretch for one of them then saw that were no dies included do want but not that much.


    Plodding away with this cbf moving cars around after work so still can do the welding and machining stuff easily but ill need to move things around on the weekend to continue with much more...
    But anyway circlip groove, pretty much made most of the tool bit with the angle grinder lol.
    It worked ok but would like a D bit grinder to make things like this more accurately and repeatable.
    https://www.machineryhouse.com.au/G1975







    Drilled some random holes in some plate ...



    Then tried to stack some dimes...


    And some slightly dodgy alignment steps


    Dont think will be giving up my job anytime soon...


    Made some delrin bushes to dimensions of oem ones



    So i could bolt the lower section in. Mainly for a more accurate alignment to fabricate torque arm.

    Since tube bender is on the backburner for the moment i got out my trusty pipe kinker... with a sliding square as a stop reference and only small bends i think it turned OK.



    Have been putting pretty decent tacks on this as to solidify it enough so that it can hold its shape enough to be tweaked into place etc.



    Pipe notches have been doing them by hand using angle grinder and template derived from

    http://metalgeek.com/static/cope.pcgi



    Few more spacers etc to make and tack in place then move onto the bench and fill in the rest of the welds.



    Since this going to make things more difficult for single turbo shenanigans i had already have purchased a s369exe with a 1.00 rear housing i had planned on using but as i have said earlier packaging a pair of gt30 or gt28 maybe a bit easier. Yes i did some calcs on another s369exe i think this motor wont quite have enough but i suppose it could be doable.

    Kind of hoping i can get away without having to use external gates so looking along the lines of a pair of these.

    https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/MAMBA-Ba...cAAOSwU-pXvCi1


    Edit
    On second thoughts a .82 housing would be better on this i would imagine

    https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F282742050985

    Have used the kawabunger turbo brand on a forester previous with good results so maybe more inclined to go that way.

    Any other thoughts...
