            DAY NINE: 9/1/11 ENGINE REMOVAL

            Well i got out there and pulled the block from the RX7. Straight forward so I'll spare you the write up. The pic says it all.



            After a quick stop at the car wash on the way home, most of the paint came off with the pressure wash. Which is good, because i hate red painted engines. They show up every bit of grime. I'll paint strip the rest of it off.



            I had a look down the (stock) exhaust ports and saw that this engine has excellent rotor housings and very clean rotors. A sign of a recent build using decent parts. Also i'm glad to see this engine has not got marks on the flywheel nut from a cold chisel. As this is usually the first warning sign of an engine built by a careless fuckwit. If they don't have the correct 54mm flywheel socket then how likely is it that they REALLY know how to set the clearances properly or go to the trouble of replacing anything out of spec.



            Geoff came over and gave me a hand to have a quick clean up. I got the bright idea...



            At least we had a good laugh!

              Do you live on a ley line?

              Not sure what else could explain the sudden appearance of a miniature gearbox based Stonehenge on your driveway.

              Loving this build, especially the bit where you have been prodded into doing something useful with a huge collection of unsightly crap. Keep up the good work man.
              Cheers, Richard

                  I went through and started tossing some broken stuff away, pulled some dashboard and interior parts out of the grass and got them sorted, if venus lines up with the house of uranus and it doesn't rain/flood/earth split in half, there should be some good progress this week.

                        Man I am still in awe of the amount of parts you have squirreled away.

                          slickrx: pm'd back. forums lost my very long reply. easier to speak face to face or at least on the phone.

                          outy: i can look through my stuff. i'm not sure that the bootlock from the 121 was any good. I think it had been screw-drivered (not by me). If its the same lock as rx4 you might have a chance. Otherwise i refer you to Wes or the other RX5 freaks. Also, consider putting a boot release solenoid in there (look at one from a falcon boot or fuel flap).

                          xwavgas: there is more to a factor of untold proportions. If i can reduce my hours at work i may get through other projects this year. Including tidythefuckinggarage project.

                          Where i've got caught is that you start to resto a car and others of its kind keep coming your way. My pet hate is cunts that dismantle cars and sell them as stripped shells with 4 trailer loads of shit that needs to be stored somewhere.

                            its got a factory fitted boot release cable (at least i think its factory fitted as its down by the drivers seat) just need a lock to fill up the hole. rx4 locks arent big enough in diameter or need a backing plate - not sure.


                            so is the engine going in, ported at all ?

                              WTF?

                              Good for a laugh here but otherwise sensible cunts storing gearboxes upright worries me.

                              Due to gravity most of the of the shit in the oil ends up in the front bearing.

                                I kid you not, I found some interior trim under some weeds. I also found a bumper under a hedge. :rotflol:

                                aaron does store gearboxes horizontally, stacked like gearboxhenge was purely for lols.

                                ps - do you do wheel stud conversions Momus? I think i spoke to you ages ago via pm on ipra forum about my now crashed 1300, I referred Mo to you.
