Ok, after the break from EMO this past week, we've made a bit more progress!
Bolting up all the crap!

Note the type 4, 7 row oil cooler! This should give for good motorway cruising! Cool

Small problem trying to mount this....

EMO Resto - Page 3 DSC00157


To this!

Yep, altenator to dynamo stand just aint gonne go! No
scratch


So we figured we'd stick the motor in and solve that problem later!
Bit of clearancing to get the 12volt flywheel in!

Then we discovered the thrust bearing was knackered so the motor couldn't go in anyway! Evil or Very Mad
Any hope of making the next meet has now gone! No

Progress this weekend hasn't been that great, partly due to Sid being away on a dirty weekend! Wink
I've managed to get over the problem of trying to mate the altenator to the dynamo stand, by fitting the altenator to my car! afro

Work in progress:
EMO Resto - Page 3 DSC00166


The engine for EMO is now virtually ready to go in! Couldn't fit it as Sid had the new thrust bearing! Mad
Never mind! maybe next weekend!


Spence, if you wanna get started on your car, evenings this week, give me a shout! There aint alot I can do on EMO in the dark! EMO Resto - Page 3 Hangloos

No worries bud, it was nice seein you and Ed today!

scratch As far as I know, it's a good pump! the rod should be ok! I assume you've been crankin it over for ages? It does take a while to get the fuel flowing!


Motor'll be in tomorow morning! And hopefully driving in the afternoon! EMO Resto - Page 3 Thumbs

After hollyoaks finished (F*ckin hell Sid! Evil or Very Mad ) we attempted to bleed the breaks! After 2 hours of pumpin, we still had no fluid coming through the new pipes! scratch
Checked everything was tight and no leaks,. And we still couldn't get anything through! Evil or Very Mad
We'll try again after the engine's in!

I know someone who went travelling and spent alot of time in Sydney....in fact he spent most of his time in Kings Cross in Sydney (google that) he ended up leaving his credit card which his mum and dad gave him for emergency purposes in a less than kosher establishment....the lady at reception rang the credit card firm who in term rang his mum and dad and told them where he left the credit card lol! they were not impressed as the name of the establismnet kind of gave it all away lol!
