If you are splitting engine case, then engine stand won't be very much help I understand. I have half a case on a stand right now waiting to be built. Don't know how it will work out.

I used an engine stand for the engine while I worked on it. Now I am using it while I am cleaning and servicing the transaxle.

I have yet to run out of things to do. I have been retired for 25 months. But Donna and I have an agreement. I will not just sit in the recliner watching tv day in and day out. I only watch tv in morning for news and maybe an hour of other programming and in evening for news and couple hours of Velocity.

Pinch welds forward of triangle areas. That is where I pick it up. Usually front comes up with it if you go high enough. Leave yourself room to get jackstand in to seat properly.

Worked on the wiring some today. I was able to run the 3 non-factory wires through the body harness connector. Now there is no new connector or loose wires needing a feedthru to engine compartment. Just have to wire the engine side up to circuit breaker and inertia switch. Also I need to wire up the wires that remain on the front side of the firewall at the relay and to blower motor. I need

Broken mount stud replaced with a 1/4-20 nut gripsert. Heater box installed and outlet hose and brace installed. Started left hose installation, but stopped by mess of added wiring to a dual use relay, unsecured body harness and unsecured main fuel line. Work in progress to secure main harness and fuel line. Looks like a couple of gripserts will have to be installed as some clamps are broken

And the heater box is completed, except the support. That will be painted tomorrow. If you notice, one photo shows the mechanism interlinking the blender doors. That is the only color photo available I know of the linkage installed. Having that one photo next to you when you start to put your disassembled box back together will save you some time. Or take a photo of the linkage and valves

Engine was fully reassembled last Thursday with quiet mufflers. Harley mufflers are removed for now. A quick run showed it to be quieter but still needs to run more before adjusting rockers to quiet the lifters. Valve covers with holes for rocker adjusting are ready to go on before next run. Hopefully will do that soon. I want to get its new home prepared for the engine first.

Yep. The car original assembly started out real groddy. The black parts were painted but not to my liking. I blasted a blasted & painted all the best parts from my spare boxes and used them. The only thing I am using off the car's original heater box is the fan. The 2 blender doors, one came each of my spare boxes. I bead blasted the metal on the doors and gently bead blasted the rubber fro

Thanks, Seth. I had not yet bought a gasket for my Clark's aluminum oil pan. They recommended a paper gasket. I will go with your recommendation. It is the same gasket I used on steel pans on Greenbrier engine and the Mouse House 110 engine.

Only can do boses in the seasons when outside temps are above 75 and I am not overly busy. You have to make sure the blender doors are in great shape. Other than that it is just clean, bead blast, prime and good paint. New hoses are a must to be used with them. High flow blower fans are an option and to be supplied with heater box. You will have to convince SteveninMarietta to take on coa

They are betting on big vehicles. They didn't learn the lesson in the 70s when the foreign manufacturers had the economy cars when gas was exorbitant and rationed to days. They will learn again and then they will be gone.

Here is a photo of my heater box parts cleaned up and ready to be assembled. There are no gaskets available anywhere for the fan blower motor to housing or the fan mounting housing to heater box lower section. I found some closed cell foam good for the temps and fluids that will do the job. I have made templates and first gasket has been cut and installed. Not a perfect gasket like GM would ma

Here is the photo of the fan and motor that will be going in. No part number is on the blower motor. Note the holes in the housing which would be covered by the fan. Fan has a light coat of hi temp Matte Clear Coat on it to slow down rust. They will be assembled tomorrow and hopefully also mounted to the heater box.

Ah. More flow to push the air past leaky hoses and duct seals. And leak more out too. Gotcha. I'll fix mine while I have the chance and be able to run low fan speed and get driven out. Maybe only crack the heat valve to get good heat down here in the southeast.

Looked at blower motor that was removed from the car. No differences with fan on. Removed fan and saw holes in housing tht allows air into motor armature area. Just like on the NAPA blower motor. So it must be a high flow fan as non of the fans I took out of the scrapped cars had similar motor housing. They where Ll sealed up. So this one goes back into the car and I save the new NAPA blo

Got the point, everyone. Rebuild heater box to GM standards (or better cor corrosion protection, install new hoses with collar and hose supports and drive on. Got it moving on rebuilding heater box now. Now to be inquisitive, why a high flow fan if the system GM installed can drive you out of the car? Never have heard a good reason so far.

I have the blank off plate on the engine shroud fresh air offtake already. It is staying there. The hose is coming the engine and another plate will be made for the firewall hole where hose exited. Heater box will be closed off or a filter put on the fresh air hose connection point. Going simple with it.
