Wow this is great! I remember seeing this car for sale on craigslist. I would have bought it if I didnt already have one Keep the pics comingOctober 12, 2013 at 8:51 am #9358
While cleaning off the Generator brackets, I found that they are chrome or nickle plated! is this the way they come from the factory?October 13, 2013 at 8:13 pm #9360jensenracing77Participant
If you keep the automatic I would go with the stock cam. These engines in stock form are more than these transmissions want. I went with a stock cam and it still pulls nice when you step on it.
Looks like a great start.October 14, 2013 at 11:53 pm #9362
I will go with the stock cam, probably better for the Turbo also. Here is the original fan and fan clutch. Clutch has 2200 stamped an it and a date code in ink (can’t make it out). Still waiting for the machine shop for the motor. Had to bore .030″ over. Trans is cleaned up, it was painted blue, so I think it had been rebuilt at some time. Car has 63,000 miles on it.October 24, 2013 at 4:37 am #9364
Motor is almost out of the machine shop and will be ready for me to assemble this weekend. In the meantime, I went ahead and detailed under the hood. I ordered a couple spray cans from TCP made to the factory color Cirrus Blue. I left all the yellow inspection stamps intact. The undercoating in the trans tunnel has more on the left side. Maybe for the turbo pipe heat.
I can not figure out the battery hold down system. It only has lugs on one side of the tray. Anybody?October 26, 2013 at 1:41 am #9366
Got the block back, but still waiting for parts. Bored .030″ over due to scratches, had to deck due to some minor corrosion, but the block numbers were deep enough to stay.October 26, 2013 at 3:47 am #9368
