We found a stripped of paint 110 shroud that will be cut to fit the turbo engine with a 12 plate oil cooler. This came as loose parts with the Rat Tod Corsa.

Fresh air off take will be blanked off. The original turbo shroud had a blank off plate but is for a 8 plate oil cooler. Too bad it had numerous coats of post factory paint, to include school bus yellow. Too much work to get it ready for new paint.

Completed the head deflashing of this engine. Time to work on getting remainder of parts stripped and painted. Then on to reseal of the engine.

Just finished cleaning up 3 sets of top cover bolts and washers for the Monza big valve engine, Corsa engine and Greenbrier engine.

I did note that there were 0.060 washers and 0.080 washers in my stock of top cover bolts. The Corsa engine had 060 washers and the Greenbrier had both plus lock washers.

Parts book illustration shows a 1/16 thickness for the washer, but the item number 8.969 is the same as the clutch rod terminal washer (item 8.969), which shows 5/64 as the thickness.

I like the thicker ones as there is less chance of bending when the 10 ft-lbs is applied.

Al, many use "serrated Flange head" bolts for the Case cover.

Matt:

I have those for the Monza engine. I got them from John Sweet. The Greenbrier and Corsa with get Factory bolts and some Loctite with proper torque. Seems to be a prudent cost effective method to retain the factory bolts.

Matt: I found a set of top cover serrated flange head bolts for the Corsa. They were in parts package I got with the Greenbrier. So they now go to the Corsa.

I finished cleaning all the engine hardware (excluding shroud hardware). Soon most will be painted for the color of the location they are used. Time to complete the blasting and painting of the remaining engine parts.

I found a Rechromed turbo intake pipe while here at SpringFest. Looks real good compared to my 2 tubes, which are 40% peppered with rust spots. This new tube is ready for installation of Roger Parent's turbo throttle linkage. I just ordered the linkage last Thursday in preparation of putting it on my cleaned up tube. It will look much better on this new tube.

A rainy spell yesterday and today with tornado watches and warnings through out the area. So we spent the days cleaning all the oil and grease off the parts needing paint. Next step will be blasting, prime and paint.

Hey Al:
Is there someplace I could see a picture of the turbo throttle linkage your using? I was working on my stock setup on the weekend and it is pretty sloppy.
Thanks

Greg:

I will be using Roger Parent's linkage. I just bought it a few weeks ago, after I found I was missing the link to the carb. From the photos in the below link, I am going to use the turbo linkage with adjustable link, 66-69 transmission pivot and the LM tunnel pivot. New hardware will be used at all connection points.

I hope this helps.

I'm guessing Roger will be getting a bunch of emails.... Now I wish I would have done more powder coating/painting when I had my engine out last winter (rebuilt the trans and diff.). Great job Al! It'll be fun to have it back on the road!

Corsa got a little love today. Prep a few parts along with parts I did for the Monza and GB.

What are you using the angle oil filter adapter for? It's only needed with an additional pulley on the crank (a/c or smog).

Lee:

I haven't decided if it will be mounted. There is NO intention of installing A/C on this car. So it probably was just an exercise in cleaning. If so, it will be a spare for the Monza. I do have the other parts needed to mount a spin on filter. That will happen.

This might be late Al but I would not use loctite on the top cover bolts. Just some anti seize and set them to the high side of the proper torque spec (13 ft lbs.?).

Not too late, but wrong discussion. Greenbrier having top cover install done.

I did get another part cleaned and painted. The alternator bracket. I needed to do one for the Greenbrier, so the second one was not much additional time expenditure.
