Re: Jacob's goon build

They joys of working in a machine shop. Make custom parts, access to coatings. These are for my tie rods. 2024 aluminum. Free Type 2 anodizing. https://yqgevq.bl.files.1drv.com/y4m1J1Iv3I31kHghQXXmAHYGz-aQLaQb-xusg8HQ4w5eJF_6KbSnVoDm00kA-GUYtiEY3zbT8upAu6Ag0LcBSeNcQ4JDlrHyfHR6Oj4ozNSZLGUiZuGB3qJWj9i...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

This will be fun to watch. I really like the RB motors. They also look fantastic under the hood of a car (which is maybe why I like the CA18DET...)

Re: My 1969 Datsun 521 kingcab diesel

Yea, Josh told me about it.

Josh said it seemed the guy was on something. Also a rather large individual. And that the ordeal lasted about 30 minutes.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Dang it. The tire eater has struck again. New tires Monday or Tuesday. I think I might get an alignment to my specs, because fuck the factory shit. https://ypgevq.bl.files.1drv.com/y4m35gwqxTmRzy1EifSOuTpK12zd4yR3jT29Yj2UnCZAtpj6JDl1RtBVmN45bpen9VmEnVa7gUQOupkCoudf41mhYMRX2XKnrdB0rac_9unb3NxAQaz13qT...

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

Have you thought about adding to the bottom of the car? Rocker panel area? Looks like the rear of the quarter panel (behind wheel) comes lower down than the front side. Maybe part of the rocker panel.

Re: Really Ratty Rusty Ruby 510/miata

You have definitely done something I have always wanted to see. Raise the wheel well in the rear (well you did both). I have always thought the body of the 510 had too much rake. It looks so much better laid out flat like the Hakos.

Keep up the good work!

Posting pictures by hosting elsewhere still works and is probably better long term (I will probably have to lock down sharing photos from here). I can also try to get the postimage sharer working again.

Re: Jacob's goon build

That would be cool. At this point, I think I will be on the road by Canby. My friends have a bet going on if I have it back on the road by some date in November... I would say I could do that... if I didnt just decide to take on the BMW engine overhaul, which will mostly consume funds, not time. Any...

Re: Wynona the wagon's resurrection!

Its sad the SR20DET makes more torque...

Its more like you need to intentially make the Ford unit bleed when off, and when energized also activate the solenoid to pull vacuum.

Im gonna use a Volvo cruise control vacuum pump for controlling the butter fly valves in my intake.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

Stroke. Which is perfect because I can use the previous gen motor 2nd compression and oil control rings. The 1st compression ring land is narrower on this gen. This will result in a 30hp and 40lbft increase. Most say the 3.0s get better gas mileage too. Longer stroke. Intake manifold is longer, thro...

Re: Jacob's other Wagon

So I have been going back and forth on this idea for awhile. What to do about my DD situation. This car is eating shit tons of oil. I also dont want another car payment. And I really like this car. So I did a thing. IMG_20180728_165603.jpg That is a 3.0L motor for this car. The wagons never came as ...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Stuff! New outer tie rods, mid 90s Altima. They are the longer ones. Should give me about 3/4" to 1" of thread engagement. https://xxwkvq.bl.files.1drv.com/y4mGZfaSvM_hJk0f0O-Xx88V8uJmQ7yoL-bgzW77Mk7iKo6eHvRFAGU5dbrXR3RqFeGxdhruaYOrkpZ8TcEJaBDewMeSpdUuyRRfRS-kbtqaOeCr3UmDniFROlBZvgNSVSO_ApaxZZ-AfgrA...

Re: Jacob's goon build

Probably cheap, I can ask my welder what he wants ( not his welding supplies). Not sure if you have pipe already, I think I have a bit extra.

Re: Jacob's goon build

Copied here to show what I did, and make it searchable for Google (remember general discussion does not show up on google results). I've got a really cool idea. I was putting together my intercooler pipes. Since I was having my welder at work weld for me, I needed a way to make sure the parts stayed...
