Well thank you Steve.
There are members here that I had been in touch with in 2009(and previous),

This includes you brother.

Good times today and, still to come!

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

Well not sure whether I should thank you or curse you. Giving me more ideas for when I tackle my charger (85). Well if nothing else you have added more ideas to my idea and have provided links and steps for how I can incorporate them in mine. Now I just need to get out of college and get a job to pay for these mods as well as my other projects in the pipeline.

On another note truckville isnt located along RT.422? If so then I have to ask if you previously had 4-5 chargers sitting in your driveway?

No man, not on 422.
But I'd like to know how close that is to me.
It's places like that where owner's are sometimes trying to "unload" these old K's.

It's a passion which requires A LOT more money than I have to spend on it but,
when the ideas are in the mind, it just seems silly and foolish to do things any other way.
So, it'll be a while but, it'll be something special when done.

The place was literally right along the highway and for the longest time when I drove by on my way to erie for school I would see them. Then they disappeared
Was just curious if I might be able to learn their fate.

I know what you mean about money. I have had a 2.2 block out of a CSX sitting torn apart in my garage for about 4 years now. Every time I wan to get started on it I realize I am not in a financial position to do so, which only gets worse when I see threads like this and go "Damn thats a good idea, I'll have to incorporate that into my build."
Oh well the old t1 motor is still running pretty good and that means I can drive her atleast.

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

SHHHH New stuff a'comin'

I know a few pages ago, I promised to use the Turbonetics unit I had.
But honestly, for the price, the HE351CW is the better choice for me.







Oh, there's also a set of forged Venolias in the works too.

With the sub-zero temps here lately, my progress has been inhibited(to say the least).
But, keep checking in, soon(I hope) I'll get some actual work done around here.

spring 2015 will be an exciting time!

Surely there will be attempts to go FULL and,
find some indoor track for the break in time.lol

Might even go truly FULL and, build a set of rollers to drive the car on for break in of the engine.

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

I just LOVE when that big brown UPS truck stops in front of my house!


Work out for the project ahead and, SLAM the protein shake!!!
Lots of planning and, work to be done.

This Holset has an extremely small amount of play in either direction.
I'm seriously considering not rebuilding it but,
my "condition" won't allow me to pass on the opportunity to get inside this beast.




Above, ^you see a mark in the housing; it's dirt. I haven't even cleaned it yet.



9cm turbine housing NEVER TOUCHED!


S/V not even ported yet.


I tried to get close-up pics of the wheels inside the housings but,
they came out awful. Once I have it apart,
it'll be much clearer of how incredible the condition is.

There's no kind of damage to any of the blades or the walls of either housings.
The turbo Gods smiled upon me with this one for sure.

Thank you for an incredible turbo at an incredible price tmef!!!
You DA MAN!!!

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

Welcome to SOL TOOLTIME!

A bit of an update; since the weather appears to be FINALLY changing.

- I bought a Harbor Freight sandblasting cabinet and,
after some American modifications, it's a really great tool.
(I basically needed just the big box with the window and, side door that seals shut.)

I also got a cheap tool cart at BLowes and, had more luck there,
as the recessed plastic top of the box is shaped to the same dimensions as the blast cabinet!
It dropped right into place!


Here are the American tasks of enginuity I employed with my cheapo Chinese sandblaster:
First, I had to mount an air pressure regulator/air filter unit:
(Mounted so the gauge can be viewed as I'm working)


I also included an additional connection for a straight compressed air hose:
(For blowing the media from the freshly blasted parts)

(Yep, that's an aftermarket shifter cable grommet ^ for the Daytona with an a555; Also a "T" fitting held in place with a simple U-bolt)

Using a PVC connector and epoxy, I resized the air vent that came with the cabinet and,
fitted one of the ShopVac extensions into it; also epoxy used here.
This was to properly size the hole for the ShopVac to connect directly to it.
(Inside this hole, I used a ScotchBrite pad as a filter to prevent media from being removed from the cabinet)




Lastly, again from BLowes, I purchased a florescent light fixture and mounted it inside the cabinet.
The lighting is perfect.

Note above^ ; inside some of the hardware is visible. I sealed all hardware that came into the blast area.

For a Chinese Harbor Freight cabinet, I gotta say, it's a thumbs up!
(of course, after some mods; I have no choice, I must go FULL on everything)

The addition of this set-up caused me some difficulty with the limited amount of space available in the Front porch/Auto Shop! lol
So, after some moving around and proper inventory, I now have even more space!





Yes, before anyone asks, that IS the GLHS nose hanging on the wall next to its K-frame; with the dash right underneath

So, as you check out this build remember, the car has been completely built on my front porch!
Thanks for checking in and, have a great day!

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

And here's some Holset updates:
Got the rebuild kit, a new set of snap-ring pliers and a new compressor wheel;




Here's the original comp wheel:
(Um, Houston, we may have a problem)


New wheel:


Disassembled the turbo and began the blasting process:
Here's a couple shots of the turbine housing:



After final blasting, I'll most likely send this out to be ceramic coated at TU.

Again, thanks for looking.
Spring Carlisle is on April 24th and, I'm meeting a few fellow members there for some other parts.
I'll update again soon.

Best wishes to all.

Re: 1987 GLHS#0896 Project log

That's a VERY organized shop you have there Donnie! I waste so much time trying to find stuff, I need to follow your example as it would cut my build time in half for sure.

How is the inside of the scroll area in your turbine housing? My .63 Garrett was very rough and had a casting seam ridge right up the middle. I've been smoothing it down as I have time with a few homemade tools.
