Kool, you are making progress. When the time comes I'll get you the models, and from there will hook you up, trust me. And the machines we sell have injector kits, so you can suck thru the machine whatever solution you want 9either diluted or concentrated), it then mixes with the water coming out. If you "truly" need a machine now, I'll look into it, ok? If not, why don't we wait. But PM me and let me know either way. And good luck with the parts too!

Ok. By then, we will have talked a lot. So I will know what model you'll like. Guess I'll have to bring that, along with some Xylene for you, Guns, and Chris too!

I will like to illustrate the difference between a Surgeon like Mike and a butcher like me, I wish I had the skills that some of you guys have, today I had to accelerate the chop shop business because I need to ship 2 engines on Monday, and make space for one more car that I bought. I have 2 parts car at my house and one at work plus the black 87 951 that I bought yesterday, so I had to use my reciprocal saw more than ever.

Ok, so tore into the engine tonight. Everything looks good, except the oil cooler is shot. So the engine was definitely milkshaked when I drained the fluids out. Suppose I'll be doing rod bearings and rings and just make sure everything is in top notch condition. Pulled the balance shafts out, most likely deleting them. Head looks good, valves look fine. Oh, the big complaint for tonight. Some asshat put an impact (or so it appears) on the big "nut" on the front of the cam, you know, the one that isnt a nut that is just the housing for the cheesehead. *sigh* So if anyone has a spare NA cam for sale I'd appreciate it.


New Belt covers?







Always feels good to pull the only mitsubishi part off my car. Hate that damn company.





Such a stupid design.


Thankfully, after test fitting, the turbo piece appears to mount up without issues.

Lart, upon review with PET, you are correct. Despite having one from the turbo engine laying around, I'd rather just put this one back together.

That's the plan. David floyd and I have sent a few messages back and forth on this.

Lart, already got one, thanks though. jgporsche hooked me up with one for the price of shipping.

Looks like a lot of fun
Looking forward to see your balance shaft delete solution.

Okayyyyy, time to clean the barn. It's an absolute mess, I have a chair full of tools because I havent wanted to climb back to the tool box, etc. Stuff needs to be boxed/organized, etc. It gets this bad every couple months and I'll spend a few days cleaning. A friend of mine is welding up some arms off two spare crossmembers I have so I can get the car in the air a foot or so and still be able to roll it (casters built on stuff) and get it on my trailer. It *should* be going out to get the underbody soda blasted in the next month? Finished tearing down the engine, should be taking the block and pan to get hot tanked this week. Also, I hate to disappoint those who thought I was doing this to a stock NA engine, upping the compression with late pistons



POS waterpump, the only place I snapped a bolt on this whole engine (so pissed off)


Now you see it....


Now you dont!


Cylinder walls looked MINT. My father was outside and took a look and asked if they had resleeved them



Oh yeah, and where some fool used an impact on the cam, shattered the tip of it and the woodruf key.
