Engine installed today, I power washed the CV joint grease off of the bottom side of the car first thing. Now we can work without getting slimed.
It looks like the air box is going to interfere with the cross tube on the C pilars. Good thing the cage is only tacked together. I can move the cross tube to the top side of the firewall.
The hinges look like they will barely clear. Fingers crossed. I’m going to drop the engine back out to remove the tube and try again.FranzKeymasterSeptember 18, 2020 at 9:15 amPost count: 3627FranzKeymasterSeptember 17, 2020 at 7:34 pmPost count: 3627
The engine is looking nice with dual 40 Weber’s and UMP air boxes. I hope this will fit in the car. I’m going to try tomorrow.
Phenolic spaces from the solex carbs needed the holes elongated a bit.
Removed the Aniti-vibration oil cooler mounts and used washer/spacers to solid mount.
There were a few extra holes and cracks in the tin that I repaired, along with plugging the warm air risers.

Since the engine is apart, I went ahead and retorqued the heads and adjusted valves.
Race prepped valve covers to keep the gasket in place. And wire tie washers on the outside to prevent rocks from knocking the bails off.
I plugged the oil filter lines too. How about the fuel pump? Are we keeping mechanical or going electric?FranzKeymasterSeptember 15, 2020 at 11:04 amPost count: 3627FranzKeymasterSeptember 15, 2020 at 11:00 amPost count: 3627FranzKeymasterSeptember 14, 2020 at 3:07 pmPost count: 3627FranzKeymasterSeptember 14, 2020 at 9:53 amPost count: 3627
If anybody is going through Dolores, you should scoop up this lantern for $50. They only did the black band for a couple years. This one is a 1953

Completed the 2276cc engine install on Mike Young’s 66 convertible. It needed to have an external oil cooler(in addition to the type IV doghouse). With the stock heater system, oil cooler mounting is difficult. I used the smallest empi offering and mounted it to the torsion housing.
