It sure does look clean. When I have the alternator on and the pressure switch installed, I will post another photo. I will also post a photo of a 110 in its natural state, unmodified.

We did a small bit on the engine today. We put heli-coils into the 3 holes in the RH head for the lower shroud. Installed lower shroud and connected thermostat rod. Also installed 3 way fuel connector and elbow connector to carb lines.

Saturday we got the PS64 low oil pressure switch installed with needed adapters. We also got the alternator installed and belt installed and tightened.

Today, we got the main fuel line built to connect to the new connection point.

Lots of rain expected, so time will be spent wiring up the engine test stand.

Time to update this discussion.

Engine is in test stand. Muffler systems are installed. Engine is pretty much completed for test. Couple minor items to setup for test stand ops still to be done.

Soon will be spinning oil pump, hand cranking engine while spinning oil pump, then using starter to spin engine while spinning oil pump with drill to check oil pressure at same time.

I like everything except the height of the stand. It makes the small of my back hurt. You've seen first hand the giraffe I use. Good job though and keep up the nice work!

How do I like the throttle control?

No leaning over to move the cross shaft. Stand at console and push the accelerator rod, spring return. A small clamp keeps it in place at the console. Might make a 8 ball handle for it.

Love it!

My mangled knees and akin' lower back are throbbing in sympathy at the memory of having to lean over a Corvair cross shaft.

Al,
This is looking awesome, and I’m impressed.
BTW it was great meeting you at Maggie this year, and I hope to catch up with you at either Hellen, or Maggie next year.

Thanks, Eric. It has been an interesting project but taken longer than expected due to life priorities.

Not working engine this week. If I get kitchen painting done early, I will continue working on it. Donna is headed to Texas Wednesday for 10 days. This my opportunity to paint the kitchen.

Back on engine, now test stand is sorted out.

I still need to secure left muffler to exhaust bracket. Something for tomorrow.

Oil was put in engine. Plugs were pulled. Oil pump was spun using oil pump spin tool I made (stole design from one I bought from vairmech). Engine was hand rotated while spinning pump. After 5 engine rotations, ignition switch was turned on and we saw we had 38 psi oil pressure using the drill.

Starter solenoid wire was connected. While pump was spun, engine was crank with starter. No abnormal sounds were noted. Compression air puffs from each cylinder was checked. Discovered #6 had weak air puffs. Tomorrow, we will pull valve cover and verify rockers are not to tight.

So far, so good. Looks like a fuel and ignition on start sequence will happen tomorrow.

More would have been done, but we had a Forum member visit with us today. A very nice person and interesting history with cars. Well worth the time away from the engine.

Distributor and plugs were installed. Plug wires were routed and connected. Static timing and dwell was set. Gasoline was added to test stand fuel tank and pump was activated to check for leaks. Yep, we had 3 leaks. Took a change out of the "T" fitting to fix one and tightening of lines' nuts to fix the others.

Engine was started after leaks confirmed fixed. A high idle, but sounded pretty good with some valve clatter from left side. We had already confirmed that the left side need rocker adjustment due to compression check we had done yesterday and early today. We had loosened up rockers to get compression corrected. Rockers were adjusted but still had issue with lifters not pumping up fully. Will go with them for right now.

Rick balanced and adjusted the carbs. He also double checked timing and dwell. Alternator was confirmed to be properly operating.

We decided the engine is ready for installation. Total time running was about 60 minutes. Most running was at 200 rpm or less. occasion bursts to 4000 was down. So for this rag tag engine, its this revival has come to a end and it will join a car to be enjoyed on the roads to see America.

Attached are the photos of the engine under test. Please note the oil temp actual moved of the peg. We had all air possible from the fan going through the engine and out the doors. No fan was used to assist the blower fan in cooling the engine. Outside air temp was a mild 65 degrees.

Please read more on the engine and its new home in the Engine Installation discussion.

Get it to idle down to 450 rpm since it's with a PG.
