let me check the attic of the shop...;-)

but no. not sure of an available used set. the IE set is a bit cheaper than the CG one i think. making rear height adjustable is easy. roundy-round cars use same size threaded spring adjusters as a on does in the rear. single rate race spring plus adjustable perch equal rear setup.

today was spent installing the new conrod bearings from Blunt with ARP bolts. no issues. one more project checked off.

another box of parts ordered from Blunt, and the S14 oil pan from Lee should be done in a few weeks.

then i went about making a video of the engine test i did on the Kerman M10 i am taking out of the car. Engine is already spoken for, the new owner will be a happy camper..

zero vibration/movement of the engine, even on stock mounts. idles nicely at 900-950 rpm on the dcoe45's. 195psi +/- 5 across all four cyls. no shortage of power at the auto-x last weekend. dang, why am i selling this thing? ;-)

oh well, gotta start taking the M10 apart and get it out of the car this weekend.

Marshall,

Having seen you crushing the competition on the autocross track at Chapterfest, I can verify that your driving Kung Fu strong, and that your M10 is a beast. If your buyer decides that he/she would prefer a motor that's a little more sedate or subdued, I might be convinced to buy a backup motor. I figure if something unexpected happens to my motor when my great grandchildren are hooning it out on the Bonneville Salt Flats, they'll appreciate my foresight in having stored a suitable replacement for them.

I started today with a goal of prepping the 75 for the removal of the m10. Disconnect and label wires and hoses, remove carbs, remove exhaust, remove driveshaft, drain oil and coolant, pull radiator etc. planned on doing the heavy engine and trans removal tomorrow.

Well, I got most of the little stuff done by 3, and then Grice and Clay showed up. Voila, engine out by dinner!

Ladies purses turn out designer handbags to be increasingly more light nowadays, together with the problem of shoulders identified in women, girls purses designed far more makes use of than appearance. Selling price isn't the largest facto

Before heading off to pick up Jim's new old tii engine and eating turkey in Connecticut, I replaced all the seals in the 5spd (shifter, output and input).

Got back to work on the M2 today. EVO oil pump had arrived so I put that in.

The shim I took out showed evidence of the oil pump chain hitting it. When I shimmed up the new pump the chain was really close to the shims, so I took them out and customized them with the friendly bench grinder. Voila! Plenty of clearance!

Top shim in pic’s is the one that was in the engine and was hitting the chain. You can sort of see the damage on the top edge. Bottom two shims are the ones I clearance for the chain.

Here they are installed.

And the pump is in!

Front of engine is looking more done…

Then I attacked the exhaust side water pipe, literally. At stock length, it does not leave much clearance for the water hose, so I took a cue from Lee and hacked about 40mm out of the middle.

Before

Marked for cutting

Screwed it to a board so it would be stable in the radial arm saw

And then it went through the guillotine

When it gets welded it should look like this

More fun next weekend!

Thanks again for hauling the engine down. I think your puncture was caused by the protruding heat shield bolt on the exhaust manifold.

I'm taking apart and you are putting together.

I wonder if all S14's have that close clearance between the pump chain and shims?

i knew you would not be able to resist taking that tii motor apart!

i have not looked up part numbers, but maybe there are thinner oil pump shims specific to the S14. I was using M10 shims.

Some outsourced work. I have two sets of injectors, both suspected of around 100k miles. Here is one set as I took them out of the car.

DSCN4065.jpg

Sent them all off to RC Engineering for some testing and cleaning. I have sent other sets to them for my race car. Gotta love results like this!

DSCN4328.jpg

And the reports

Ya, I know…only need 4 in an S14, but good to have extras!

anyone who runs a fuel injected car...even if you think it is running well, it is worth it to pull the injectors and have them cleaned and tested. it makes a difference!

Looks like my race car may be sold, so spent most of the day packing up all the parts..:-(

But then the fedex guy came. Oh boy! Why carry 30lbs worth of metal S14 intake stuff when you can bolt this on?

After I was done staring at that thing, I turned to cleaning up the throttle bodies with dremel and little wire wheel.

DSCN4336.jpg

Got one done…more tomorrow!

wondered if anyone would notice that.......

new job is going to prevent me from doing a full race season, again. didn't make sense to invest in another full tilt race motor for only a weekend or two. e36 race car getting delivered to new owner in same trip the kerman M10 gets brought to winchester.

not fully done with racing, just may take a different track....;-)

Finished cleaning up the second Throttle body today. Fun getting the grunge out of all the linkage pieces.

Then Dr. Destructo, Jim G, came over. He has been detailing the rapid dismantling of his old tii engine in another thread. At my place he enabled the front subframe and suspension “falling out of the car”’. Took it out to reinforce the DS motor mount. ST sway bar came off to be replaced by IE drop bar to clear the S14 oil pan.

DSCN4347.jpg

Then went to replace the heater hoses. Passenger side went fine.

DSCN4344.jpg

Drivers side a PO had oriented the hose clamp such that it could not be removed without…..removing the wiper motor.

DSCN4348.jpg

Of course this led to “while I am in there” rehab of the wiper motor and taking apart the linkage.

DSCN4346.jpg

Argh need more parts!

Marshall,

I have a pair of wiper motors in the attic if you need some parts. I also have a freshly painted LSD and a distributor that I need to return to you. I'm available to make delivery most nights this week if that's convenient for you.

I am watching your build and hope you the best. I am doing the same thing to a 76 automatic. I was wondering do you know the specific wires on the harness to adapt to the 02 harness. I was trying to get aheads up on the electrical.
