So this morning, I hooked the motor up to the engine hoist. Got it all balanced out, and pulled it into the parking lot to plop it in the car, only to realized I forgot to take out the mockup motor! DOH!



I dropped everything, loosened off all the mounts, and pulled the mockup engine out. Found where my release bearing went, on the transmission! I pulled that off to clean/regrease it before putting it back in. After a lot of grunting, swearing, and scratching/cutting up my hand and arms, I got the motor in! I set the e30 318 rad in, and to my delight, fit fairly well.



However, the rad mounts a bit differently, so I had to make a bracket to bolt onto for the top, and I still have to make some sort of bracket along the bottom to support the rad. I'll get to that this week sometime. Here is my solution for the top bracket.



All welded in. Pounded around the rad cap with a hammer to get some clearance for the cap.



Bolted in a few odds and ends, one major piece: the starter. Needs some cleaning and paint, but I wanna see it in action first. It's easy to pull out later on. Hell on that note, the motor may have to come out once or twice more... the joys of building a project car!



One boo boo I managed today was to break the distributor housing. It wouldn't go in, so I tried to spread it apart with a screwdriver and.. SNAP! Well lucky me, my mockup motor had one. Yoink!





And this is how I left it for today... Damn, I might actually be able to hear this run by the end of this week?!

Ha Look at you man with the cuts on the hands and all that. Very nice job on the dizzy housing! Let me know when it starts, maybe I'll drop by for a visit.

So... a lot of visitors at the shop today kind of hindered some progress, but I got it as far as firing over and running for a few secs on a few cylinders lol... I think I am fighting a fuel problem as I have good spark, but it got too dark outside so I called it a day.

The war zone around 5pm:







And how I left it for the night

Wow, so I am officially a retard. I had the fuel lines hooked up backwards, that's why there wasn't much pressure! DOH! Oh and that great rusty starter? Yea, it shit the bed trying to get it going... had to replace that already. Luckily, it's an easy swap. So after all that, it started right up yesterday! Seems to be good, oil is in the head, it isn't making any strange noises. Also got the timing set somewhat... Safe to say the motor is solid! Now time to clean up the install.

Won't be any updates for the next week and a bit. 'Till next time...!
