Thank you Pete. I had fun putting that together …definitely was a challenge.
Did you install it into the car last night??
I forgot to tell you that the belt size is 13 x 910. I put a napa brand on there…but it looks like there is a contitech available if you’re worried about looking like a redneck. 🙂
I forgot to take the little spade terminal adapters off of the coil and oil press switch. Try not to use any spade terminals on the wiring.JdawgParticipantAugust 5, 2018 at 9:39 amPost count: 454
That was going to be my question too Franz…
IS IT IN YET???
Awesome motor Pete…that has to have been worth the wait!PeteParticipantAugust 5, 2018 at 2:59 pmPost count: 916
Haha….no, it’s not in yet. I just picked it up on Friday so it’s only been here a couple of days. It’s taken a pretty amazing amount of restraint to not stab it in.
I got a text on Wednesday from the guy replacing my engine bay center section telling me he has availability to do it in two weeks, so I didn’t want to put the motor in and have to pull it almost immediately.
I’m fine with the belt, but since I usually carry a spare I’ll check out the Conti. I did chuckle at the spade connectors…I figured they may have been from the run stand. No spade terminals here. I’m going to try and do a “Franz” quality job extending the harness and routing the wires, so I definitely don’t want to disappoint on the connectors.
It is definitely worth the wait. I go out to the garage and stare at it several times per day. 😁John JonesKeymasterAugust 6, 2018 at 12:43 pmPost count: 7082PeteParticipantAugust 7, 2018 at 6:49 amPost count: 916Scott SainParticipantAugust 7, 2018 at 8:02 amPost count: 287

Haha, yeah I don’t think so.
I’ve been working on a line drawing. Pretty much just like tripple J’s t-shirt but fully assembled.PeteParticipantAugust 19, 2018 at 5:09 amPost count: 916
Not yet. Still waiting on body guy to tackle engine bay. The waiting is killing me, but it’ll be worth it.John JonesKeymasterAugust 19, 2018 at 9:39 amPost count: 7082
I love the home page picture of your car…. also making me want to build a low light… 😎PeteParticipantAugust 19, 2018 at 1:16 pmPost count: 916
I like that too; was surprised to see it scroll by. Thanks to Will (or whoever) for adding it to the rotation.
And yes, build a lowlight JJ! They’re beautiful cars….I bet it would easily move down the road once you’ve had your fill of it too.PeteParticipantAugust 29, 2018 at 12:16 pmPost count: 916
