New bullet for the "Brick"
#91
I'm gonna replace the door glass channel slides too (original) as well as lube up the window mechanisms. The passenger door wasn't aligned very good from the factory so I decided to adjust it while I'm doing all this work with the windows and seals. It was low in the front, high in the rear and too far in on the bottom. Hard to tell from the pics -

On the previous engine I used a Moroso water pump drive which also turned the fan. It worked well but this time I'm gonna go with an electric fan. I settled on this 12in dual fan set up in an aluminum shroud. I will keep the Moroso w/p drive to turn the pump.

Got the passenger door adjusted, now the side trim actually lines up nice!

Got some more parts in - DOTI manufacturing billet low mount alternator bracket and timing pointer. This is a nice piece.

I also picked up these M/T valve covers, got a good price on 'em and they are polished.

Back to the fans/shroud/overflow bottle/relays - I drilled 15 1-1/4 holes across the top of the shroud to allow more airflow thru the radiator when the car is moving. I bought some 1/16 rubber sheet to make flaps to cover the holes so the fans don't just suck air thru them instead of the core. It was a lot of work but I'm very happy with the result - hopefully it works.

Rubber flaps cut out.

I also finished up the fan & relays wiring - the green zip ties are temporary.

The fans relays harness follows along the drivers inner fender with the headlite harness.

The power source for the relays is a 50 amp breaker mounted on the M/C stiffener plate. The other one is for the MSD box.

lastly - like I mentioned in an earlier post I re-routed the overflow bottle line/hose/tube. Looks much better now. Here you can also see how the rubber flaps look completed.

After waiting 3 months and no progress on machine work I was forced to pick up my stuff and find another shop. I called Bob Mazzolini for help and he referred me to QMP in Chatsworth CA (San Fernando valley) So on the 3rd I drove the 306 miles (1-way) to drop it off and get it done.

Brad at QMP is the best. He has done many engines for me.
Ask him about troxellsgarage

I ended up dealing with Mike - are they reasonable on their pricing Andy?

Brad's the owner, mike is great too.

I think very reasonable for the quality work they do. Tell them to please stick to there time estimate as best they can.
Nice dyno too there.

My favorite valve covers.

What heads do you run? I machine spacers for those valve covers and o-ring the head to spacer. It works out real nice - never had any leak. But not all heads are the same. I'm in the process of making another run. Ordering material next week. I can make an extra set if you have any interest. Around $50 - 60 in material.

The other thing I do with those covers is machine the baffle standoffs some and safety wire the screws so that they can't fall out.
