Also, I just looked at the pictures again and am blown away with how nice that rig is....

It's going to love the new motor.

Marco thanks, yea I am excited about the engine for sure.

so while waiting for the engine machine work 2.0 to be finished, I am keeping myself busy with other little things that need done.

my pile of stuff out of the engine compartment that needs powder coated is growing.

and I decided to give the plastic bottles, the overflow and the washer fluid reservoir a muriatic acid bath (dilluted of course and handled with care) to clean them up

they're not perfect but they turned out real nice.

here's some before

overflow:

washer fluid:

and after about 20 or so hours in a dilluted mixture of muriatic acid and water

They turned out really well.

also did the front pinion which was leaking real bad.

pictures aren't necessary but I like them, plus it took me a while to find the torque spec in the manual, so its here 144 to 173 for the nut

I used a touch of silicone around the outside of the seal and then a touch of grease to keep the inner spring in place while I pounded it in

I have done a few seals and I can never get them in square I always wind up ruining them, so I started using various pieces of pvc as seal drivers and my success rate is increasing.. this little 2" pvc cap worked well.

more to come, including the vacating of the frame of an astonishing amount of sand, it blows HARD in wyoming

hopefully my block will be done too so I can start putting the engine back together.

I always had trouble too until I came across this little kit from HFT:



Like my parts washer, it is one of those things I wonder how I ever lived without.

so I mentioned that the frame was full of crap....
it was all dry sand so I was happy to see it wasn't corroded, but it was ....

...and CRUD

so I ....

...vacummed as much of it out as I could before my trusty little shop vac filter gave up and the garage......

....had me hazed and confused and wheezing....

so I gave up on it until I can get another filter and get the other side cleaned out.

then its going to be cleaning the frame up, maybe spraying the inside with rust bullet or something just to make sure. I will give it a good cleaning and see what it looks like, spot checking the frame there's still good paint on it, so I'll see how it cleans up and make a decision on painting the frame.

I know vacuuming isn't tech :-)

<tech>
Then it will be ready hopefully to receive its motorvation...
still no call from the machine shop...they've got to be getting close.

Default powdercoat

got all the powdercoat back.

still have some more to go, but I should be able to make good progress with what I got back...
I was happy with Premier Powder Coating, they did a good job and paid attention to little details inclduing thread protection on each and every internal or external threaded piece


went from this ugly pile:

The bell housing and the oil pan turned out great too, but I was pushing my luck with the kitchen counter space already so I didn't bring them in.
this was just basically to inventory it all because there were a lot of parts I took there.

Wow! You're going to have a brand new FJ40 by the time you're done.
