Right on, I'm happy with mine, don't forget to weld an NPT port in the pan for oil temp while you have it off.

I plan on tapping the oil pan too, for a turbo return... Just in case I go that route in the future. Good point on the oil temp though!

It was time to think about the fuel system. I was originally going to do a fuel safe, I even ordered one. The thought of it being close to the rear bumper made me worried about being rear ended. He is what I was planning on doing:

I then decided to add a Aeromotive Phantom fuel pump setup to the original fuel tank. I first cleaned the inside of the tank with some POR-15 metal prep. For the tank being 45 years old, it was in great shape. I then went to work cutting and altering the setup for my application.




I had a few extra moments to cleanup some of the wiring. Here is the aftermath:


To do before the engine goes back in:
1)pressure wash the whole car inside and out
2)run the fuel lines

Once that is completed, I'll install the pan insert. Then the motor and tranny go back in!

Today I tackled the Kpro pre install. Everything went well, except for the exhaust CAM trigger wheel. I stripped the 8mm bolt. I knew it was reverse thread (from everything I've read) and I still stripped it. I'm guessing I need to remove the cam... But how do I get off the stripped bolt?

Well that was a chore. I guess my ace hardware allen/hex sockets were not up to snuff... New bolt is ordered and should be here on Wednesday.

Thanks! I need to get this bolt in-house, and have the oil plate welded in. And then put humpty dumpty back together again. I hope my front suspension comes in this week. I'd like to roll the car back outside to power wash everything inside and out and prep for lizardskin and a small coat of bedliner around my feet.

cool build man
a word of advice, don't do the turbo drain in the oil pan, it'll always be in oil level and will not drain properly. Mine always had a slow dripping leak in the garage too so I moved it to the timing cover. Alternatively you could use the crank girdle if you want it on the side.

Thanks for the words of wisdom. I just dropped the pan off at my welder. Should have it back tomorrow and the motor buttoned up and back in this weekend. I hope to have it running in 2-3 weeks.

Well my new bolt finally showed up, and I was able to get the tray welded to oil pan.



Oil pan is back on, and the exhaust cam trigger wheel is installed. Tomorrow I will install the new clutch and resurfaced flywheel and put the heart back in the beast.
