A quick update.

Yesterday I picked up a used, but in excellent shape, Triad muffler from one of our local members.

I have made 2/3rds of the payment to McMark for his excellent Microsquirt driven EFI and electronic spark. Will be paid off by the end of the month.

I stopped by my machinist today and he promised my heads would be done next week. Of course, its easy to say "next week."

I gave my engine tin to Joe to take to his powder coater in Baltimore. They did a great job on his stuff.

This is really starting to move together. I'm getting excited.

You'll like it! Mark really has something in that package. I would consider it over carbs on a relatively stock car anyday.

If it runs in the winter that means it is likely to run in April. And that is what I really care about.

So, do you still want the loaner motor? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) If not, I have a guy who wants to use it to build a megasquirt system. Still yours to use if you want it though. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

If I have the loaner motor, I won't need it.
If I dont have it, my car won't be driving at Hershey.

Kinda like taking an umbrella on a cloudy day to ensure it does not rain.

At this point, if there is someone that needs the motor, I can't justify having it on hand for insurance. Especially if you are going to ship it cause you are not coming this weekend.

Well, I will keep it on hand for you until you know for sure. They are in no hurry for it as they are Volvo guys. He was just going to design a ms system for us d-jet guys as a favor to me. I have it on hand in my storage unti on an engine stand in plug n play condition. Something happens and you need it, I will strap it to a pallet and send it right away.

Last week I picked up a triad muffler from Bill in Mt Airy.

Over the weekend I blasted it clear of old paint and what little rust it had. I also got a free, used O2 bung from a fellow teener this weekend at ECC.

Today I cut in the opening for the O2 sensor. I cleaned up the used bung and welded it into pace. I could not find a 18mm fine bolt, so I tried to be very careful not to warp the bung while welding it into place.

Then I put the first coating of grill paint on it.

(IMG:http://www.914world.com/bbs2/uploads_offsite/farm9.staticflickr.com-1435-1350941581.3.jpg)

I actually made real progress today!!!

The second and third coats of paint will come ay a later date. The first was put on quickly today to keep it from rusting up since I had blasted the metal bare yesterday.

Geez, you're working fast Zach....good to see that bung is working out--it's pretty meaty & shouldn't have warped much if any. Which wideband are you going to be using?

Yeah man, it worked great.

It took very little time to clean it up and get it all round again. Made for easy welding.

I got to work today way early (easy as I was working from home today) and was done by one. Had to be ready to help my wife out this afternoon. I figured I would get as much done on it until she got home. As it was, I had three solid hours to work, and I was just finishing the first coat of paint when she drove up.

Wow! You weld like I do Zach. My brother (aerospace welder) says "it looks like a chicken flew over and shit those welds" when I tried welding. I showed him though... After that comment, he had to do all my welding! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif)

My welds are not pretty. But they hold just fine.
I don't do it enough to get pretty.

Triad muffler now has 4 coats of paint. After I out the kids to bed I laid some more down as it is a warm fall evening.
It looks brand new.
This part is done.

Just updated my project plan.
I have reached the tipping point!
I am 50.25% complete with my EFI conversion.

Yes. I am a nerd. So what? The project plan keeps me from diverging too much.
