Re: 1985 AMC Eagle wagon build

More of my dad's Chevy Eagle in the making: Got the prototypes of the next revision back; I screwed up the right side plate, so I need to fix it and have it made again. However, I was able to check the spacer pucks that get the mounts off the bolt-heads on which they overlap. https://i.imgur.com/nKp...

Re: My NEW fiero turbo setup

What's up with "Engine might be done"?

Also, do you have pics of the underside of your oil pan, especially installed? I'd like to see where it ends up relative to the engine mount tray and if it would be feasible to build a bracket from the pan to the stock Fiero mount.

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

Somewhat better mockup with the second blue fitting. You can see that on the return side there's some offset between the two ends in each axis. I'll just have to get the oil filter adapter into the car to see if the 90 degree hose end clears the engine mount, but this overall looks very viable. http...

Dayum... I wasn't far off on the torque, but CRAZY top end. NICE!

Have a little tuning up to do on this design, but not bad for the first try:

I got some dyno time scheduled.
When is it scheduled?

Oh yeah... I wasn't thinking about the TPC intake... new guess: 440/440

Re: Shock Valving, Spring Rates

Not sure what car you're talking about, as Fieros don't have struts in the front.

Are you a bot?

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

Inching toward a complete plumbing solution for the oil cooler. The second blue fitting arrived at my dad's house today, but I won't be back there until the weekend. The mock up needs to put the cooler a little higher, so the 90 degree hose end won't end up in as perfect a position as it looks like ...

Re: 1985 AMC Eagle wagon build

Being originally from an automatic vehicle, my engine did not have the pilot bearing carrier pressed into the back of the crank. A pilot bearing and carrier came with my clutch kit, so I tried to install it... no dice. The micrometer said that the bore in the crank was 1.8138 while the OD of the car...

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

I think I have the difficult side figured out. These are set up in approximately the same relationship they'd have in the car. Looking at just under 5" of hose to connect the two hose ends. https://i.imgur.com/qBIGKPd.jpg?1 Now... how should I set up the other leg of the circuit? The simplest way wo...

Re: 1985 AMC Eagle wagon build

Found all the case half and tail housing bolts and torqued up the tail housing. The torque spec is 23 ftlbs. I used Loctite 518 anaerobic sealant. https://i.imgur.com/eDgLprA.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/sfMD0Ww.jpg?1 The vent connection is loose. I'm not sure whether to try to seal it back up, or to p...

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

Picked up a set of Dustbuster knuckles, 33 spline hubs and axles today from the local junk yard. I got the axles and hubs apart, then pounded the hubs out of the knuckles. I'll get the knuckles blasted and painted probably Friday. I only smacked the housings of the hubs, so the bearings should be fi...

Re: 1985 AMC Eagle wagon build

SLOWLY getting everything together. I had to order some shims from McMaster to get the output shaft end play correct. Those are in and the measurement looks good relative to spec. Spec is 0.003 to 0.012, with a target of .006. This ended up at 0.003, so I'm happy. Pulling a 0.005 shim would have res...

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

For '93-'97, the Camarobirds and Dustbusters share front brakes. The <'93 brakes are different than the '94-'97 brakes, though. The Trans Sport only went through '96, but those rotors/calipers were used on a BIG chunk of GM's FWD product line. The LS1 Camarobird rotors were shared with FWD cars as w...

Re: The Mule rides again (sort of) - pics.

I think for the interim I'll go with LT1 Camaro front brakes on the rear. Those calipers and rotors are shared with several GM FWD models in the mid-'90's. They will bolt right up to '96 Trans Sport knuckles, which are a bolt in swap for the '84-'87 Fiero knuckles. Although I've heard the Dustbuster...

Re: 1985 AMC Eagle wagon build

The Dorman PN for Jeep 4.0 flywheel bolts did not have the correct parts. The Dorman kit has 7/16-20 bolts, while the real deal is 1/2-20. NO ONE MAKES JEEP 4.0 FLYWHEEL BOLTS. WTF?
