Update 6/19/2009

SOAK is just around the corner! We’re really gearing up to get this baby connected.

I picked up the welder from Kelly O’Toole (www.industriousdog.com) so we can do the “big stuff” welding.  Russ is securing some welding rod. While in Newberg last night I swapped out the vanagon starter for a late bus 091 starter (different clocked solenoid location) so we can just bolt that right in. Also picked up another box of L-Jet goodies from the house so we can finish putting the engine setup together. Should possibly have it running tonight!

Left on the list:

  • Connect up the shift coupler to the trans
  • Mount Fuel Tank
  • Run Fuel Lines
  • Mount Fuel Pump
  • Mount Computer
  • Run Wiring Harness on Engine
  • Bolt in Starter
  • Weld Brackets on Mustache Bar
  • Install Intake Tubing (AFM/Boots/Airbox)
  • Mount Clutch Master Cylinder Reservoir
  • Bleed Clutch Hydros
  • Exhaust?
  • Head Temp Sensor
  • Set Timing

We’ll see how far we get tonight!

Thanks for checking in!

      I’ll add the link…I’m not the web programmer (Heather my partner is…she often doesn’t have time to update this blog). 🙂
