Check my build thread for pictures of suspension removed we are cleaning all of it up and repainting them so it looks new under the.

Next week engine bay will be finished being cleaned up and ready for New paint battery location will be moved to rear of the car and possible run to seperate smaller batteries for cranking purposes just in case it's cold or if one battery starts to fail the other one can help make up for any missing cranking amps.

Got any thoughts or questions?

Ps. This car is part of what me and my buddies hope will get our shop off the ground and help with attract customers for any kind of work.

no update on the car thus far but good news I bought a small half ton gas dodge with over 269k about to hit 270k runs perfect used professional scan tools found no codes no strange ticks in the engine and crazy enough not really leaking oil all for $800 from my work place never really drove this POS so never actually got to wonder how it drove at first.

anyways I have had it for a week and I have found only 2 reasons to keep it.

1. will make a good spare vehicle for when the mazda is running and I have any parts failures or a tire blow out and need a truck to haul parts or spare tires to fix it or haul it back and drive to work.

2. DRIFT THE GOD DAMN MOTHER FUCKING HELL OUT OF IT BECAUSE IT SLIDES LIKE BUTTER ON THE DIRT AND NO REAL OVER STEER IT HAS EARNED ITS RIGHT TO JOIN MY FLEET!!!

I will get some pictures of it up its a very basic truck has a lot of power still and a lot of life left to give still gets great gas mileage and is in pretty decent shape outside and inside minus some outside rust and the cracked dash that is all to damn common in a dodge xDD

would love to make a video of it at work but because rules are rules not sure if this counts for dirt roads and or any clearly empty dirt spaces where well no real traffic exists and COPS.

Rule probably applies to roads, but not off public roads. A mod would probably have the final say on that.

But yeah, that's pretty awesome. I've heard that Dodge pickups are pretty reliable, and pickups in general are cheap and easy to maintain. So, you should have one good truck there. smile.gif

We don't care what you do off-road.

Also 'it slides like butter on the dirt and no real over steer'? So which is it then? tongue.gif

Quite frankly, I personally don't care what you do anywhere. The only rule is that videos of any on-road shenans can't be posted. Talk about it all you want, but be prepared to catch hell if you're being a dumbass, we've historically let community response to that kind of stuff run a bit longer than normal.

usually the best way but since I had the trans in first and didn't think about it ahead of time which was before I got this motor from that 3 rx7 deal.

but im not to concerned about it now the engine and tras are together and half bolted together right now no use in me wasting anymore time trying to do it all over again. Give me like one more week or 2 and I will fire the car up and see how she runs with this new heart.

gonna be a fun re-tuning the carb for stock to drive again. awesome.gif

Hahaha, I feel ya. A vacuum gauge and a timing light and voila, you've tuned your carb.

Unless you drive a Z or similar multi-carb vehicle in which case enjoy balancing your carbs. Still easier for some people than that laptop, but... laugh2.gif

all thats really left is putting the oil pan and radiator in but I broke a bolt like a noob on the oil pan so I have to buy a tap and dye set and take it out but im not in a hurry right so in the mean time I will finish putting the inside of the car back together try to make sure as much of the original equipment works like it use to.

Heh if I had a a nickel for every time I heard something about there size I would have a $1

I got a message on rx7 club about wanting one of our carbs to be built so we can replicate it about $400 and me pay shipping both ways is not so bad for a boost prepped carb that can be tuned either way

I don't think you understood his question. laugh2.gif Trust me, you'd need a hell of a lot more than a wideband to tune the injector pulse on a carbeuretor. awesome.gif

I did but why not play along? I ask mechanics my age at dealerships all the time if they could change the fuel injectors on my carb sometimes you just want to laugh on the outside instead of the inside when they say "yeah I can do that".

Heh. Kinda like on my old '90 Legacy, oil change places always wanted to change rear differential fluid. I told them that if they found one under there they were welcome to go for it. laugh2.gif

I'm still trying to figure out how so many people at age 22 became mechanics at dealerships but get tricked in by silly questions i'm either to smart to work at a dealer or they just don't want to pay me for my knowledge and experience or because im an asshole and will laugh at someone who tells me they are gonna just throw a turbo on their car without a tune.

whatever the reason is its still funny to prank them with carburetor questions. awesome.gif makefun.gif derp.gif

So I don't sound like an ass when I say experience or knowledge its mainly on commercial diesel but all the same crap to me. once I got into mechanic work I loved it instantly for the sounds of an Engine screaming out horsepower!

I'd just like to put out there that while they're grossly inefficiently and stupidly complex, I absolutely love blow-through turbo setups. If nothing else I have to respect someone who is willing to go through the trouble not only to get the turbo working on their carb'd car (a lost art in and of itself) but to actually get it to run properly and decently. I'd never do it on any car I owned, but bravo to those who do in this era of electronics and perfection.

Because reasons.
