mmh, thanks Dave. I guess the rain is keeping you indoors today - sorry we didn't get you further along yesterday.

Does anyone know any home-brew solutions to a good flush and flow test? I honestly don't think there is anything wrong with it, but just want to verify while I have it out.

Swap x 2

Well just wanted to say thanks to this crew. After they got the motor out, charles (cgalpin) and neil (steinhnj) came out and helped with my project. They were wore out, dirty, and ready to drink beer but they showed up and helped me get alot of little jobs out of the way. Now I am at the point where the engine is mostly ready to go in and if it would just stop raining...

Thanks guys! It is nice to see some sense of community still exists locally, all it seems like most of us "Series" guys kinda keep to ourselves these days.

I didn't take any photos since I was too busy running around trying to find where I put all the parts so many weeks/months ago. I started acquiring parts for the motor back in april of 2006. So it has been a little while on some of this stuff.

Thanks again, great help and good folks.

Dave

Sorry to hold this party up. Hope to see you guys in a couple weeks.

Charles does your torque convertor have a flange on it or four pads for the bolts to fasten to? Maybe I can help speed this up for you with the correct flywheel attached.

Jim, how many days do you plan on being in town? If you give us a window of opportunity we'll try plan the happy hour in it.

My torque convertor has 4 pads for the bolts to fasten to. Here is a picture of one just like it

Hey, I had the whole weekend blocked out for wrenching, and my wife was honoring it. What's a guy supposed to do....take advantage of it, that's what!

But seriously, I wanted to give back a little since you lent me your lift and stand, and I'm also interested in taking a look at the internals since I chickened out of doing my own rebuild. It also turns out your engine has the same timing belt and ancillary setup that my replacement will have so if I can help you get your running before I install mine, I can compare mine to yours if I have any questions

Please do give me a call when you go to put the heads back in, and I'll come help.

Here is what I'd do:

1. Flush: use a water hose to flush it good to remove as much stuff as possible.

2. Clean: fill the radiator with acid and let it sit for the night. That should clean the internals.
[Be environmentally friendly and make sure you put the radiator in a large bucket to recycle and dispose of the acid correctly]

3. Flush: use a water hose to flush it good. After the acid and the first flush, it should be clean!

4. Flow test: use one of the hose, plug it/duck tape it to one of the huge water bottle (10 Gal? up-side down), cut the bottom of the water bottle, then fill it with X gallons of water and fill it with a large bucket, time how long it takes for the water to get out/empty the water bottle. [If you want to see if you "gain" something, do that "test" before you use the acid]

I am not even sure I'd do "4.". I'd flush the engine as well to make sure any slush/deposit is removed from the internals (water hose is enough).

HTH!

Hi Loic!

Mmh, sounds dangerous.. what kind of acid? I'd sooner try vinegar or coke.
