The links aren't working.
Do you feel like coming to St. Louis to do mine, that looks great.
VP has them, says there are 50 required. I don't recall there being 25 per side, but do recall quite a few.
Depending upon how quick you need these, I may have some originals I can send you. Just cover the ride, and they're yours.
I can try to get them off this weekend. Let me know if you want them and...
Shows as "Heavy Duty 140 / 164", and has the hex on the bottom. I would think it will work for you.
I drove from the middle of BFE Wisconsin to St. Louis, MO with a Buick 425 nailhead in a Nissan Frontier. I think you can make it with a B20F & M41!!
My gearbox mount is a "real" B30 mount, with the hex shaped plate.
I can't remember what is on the engine, but think they are B20 mounts. The B20 & B30 mounts are both round and look the same, but I...
I have the B30 gearbox mount on my 142. No issues at all with fitting.
I think I have standard B20 engine mounts though. Mine didn't look overly squishy when installed. As a matter of fact, they...
That's the original B20 / M41 out of his 75 245. It would be an 8-bolt metric B20F with K-Jet. That would make it a good candidate for the IPD big bore kit and DCOE's. That would make a sweet early...
Looks good on the new springs.
Instead of the hubcaps, you should get some reproduction center caps & chrome lug nuts. The usual suspects sell them (VP, CVI, Scandex).
Were you able to remove the screw?
If so, what method did you use?
[QUOTE=thispunter;7373051]Are your seat covers OE from VP? I can't believe that stuff's still available. As long as it's all period correct maybe exact matching doesn't matter so much.
Yes, I got...
Looking good! The carpet looks fine to me.
I think the only had one color blue for a couple of different blue interiors. Then they had an aqua/green.
That said, black would look good also.
That is some nice work, and very nice engineering!
Don't know if you've seen this on turbobricks or not:
It's the original exhaust manifold. I sandblasted it, painted it with VHT high temperature primer, then painted it with Stovebrite Charcoal paint.
The paint is made for wood burning stoves, grills,...
Engine is complete!
So a suggestion.
Put the coupler on the shaft & temporarily secure it with one set screw. Then drill a small pilot hole into the steering shaft thru the set empty setscrew hole.
Some progress pics. Pretty well buttoned up, I was only sent 7 pushrods though. Hopefully # 8 will arrive in a few days.
I repainted the breather & water pump outlet. The paint must have been from...
Finished installing the crank, rods, pistons, oil pump & cam. Buttoned up the bottom end.
That's what mine looked like also!
Crank goes in tonight. Pistons arrive tomorrow. Hopefully the porch pirates don't get them, like they did my ring compressor & ring pliers yesterday!
The block & the head were skimmed, mainly to clean them up.
Mine is a B20F for 73. I bought the head gasket set from VP Auto Parts, along with the D cam / lifter kit. It was the part number from my...
I finally got around to taking my 142's B20F to the machine shop a few weeks ago and picked it up yesterday.
I really didn't need to take it, it turned out. Still takes standard sized pistons /...
You can get them from VP Autoparts in South Carolina. Shipping is reasonable and they are really good to deal with.
They aren't cheap though.
Thanks for responding.
I honestly haven't decided if I am installing it yet, or not. I have an IPD front bar installed, but don't know if I saved the old one when I moved from Everett, WA back to...
In your build thread, you have a photo on the 1st page that shows your rear sway bar mounts welded to the floor.
Do you know what gauge steel that you used for this?
The reason I ask is...
Here's the AAV that I rebuilt for my 73 B20F.
