Back to using the stock tank? I thought that there was other stuff going in that space.

What fuel pump is that?

Well I keep flopping like a fish.

In reality you bring up a few good points.

Aftermarket tank = easier

Venting through the hood = easier

Camber boxes with out trunk tank separation = easier

Adding tie in across the camber boxes DOM

Building a area to store everything = easier

A/C I have found a place to tuck it, with some cutting and a remote fan. It will retain full defrost, heat, and cooling both floor and dash vents. And have circulation of cabin air, very important in Humid Ohio!

So Scott as usual you snap me back into reality. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/chair.gif)

Answer your question.

It is a Walbro F90000267 - a 450 LPH E85 fuel pump

So thanks to Scott, I went out after running around with the wife and got a few hours in the shop.

First cleaned up, hate working in a jumbled mess.

So after that, I fixed this little hole for the antenna. Who needs a radio antenna anymore.

After that in an effort to do more things twice to five times on my car. I got out my fuel cell and sat it in the front trunk.

Attached Image

Look familiar Scott (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

This is where the A/C unit will go, just need to cut it out.

Attached Image

This will allow this area to have a battery down low, and the brake reservoirs.

Attached Image

I then decided there is no time like the present. So I marked a line, and started cutting.

Attached Image

Which then allowed for this to sit in place.

Well I am done for the night wife is back home time to spend some time with her (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif)

I was sort of hoping that you would continue the in tank pump setup on the stock tank so that I could copy it for Doug's car!

I forgot where you are planning to run your cooling lines but if you are thinking about doing it like I did mine, I highly recommend finding a way to run the lines straight out of the passages above the steering rack hump and alongside the fuel tank. Even if it requires cutting a chunk out of the sides tank.

That AC unit is going to fit great!

Cheers,
Scott

Which AC unit is that? I see its a mock up. Looks like the unit I want to use..

Also your steering shaft is right there, you might want to move it over a couple inches.

Vintage Air Mini Space Saver with heat and defrost. All Electric servos, so controls can be mounted where ever.

I will be using the 4 rotary knob controls, and add a set of center vents right under the controls.

It just misses the steering shaft, and joints. Thank you for the reminder as it is easy to miss that stuff.

Well as of Saturday it has been 6 months since I modified my fingers with a larger disc sander.

Here is the update, everything is looking really good. I am grateful everyday as this could have been much worse. I have feeling in all the fingers, they work they way they should. My nail is even growing out flat, and getting back to normal. Only issue I have right now, is stuff gets pushed under there, and it is a real bitch to clean out.

So 6 months ago. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/barf.gif)

And now (IMG:style_emoticons/default/piratenanner.gif)

Attached Image

Also the last update for this car for a while, as I am putting it on hold to complete another project. I put the EG build back onto the rotisserie.

Attached Image

This frees up my easy car lift to go under the 914-6 allowing me to do suspension, brakes, and clean the underside, etc.... Eventually will allow for the engine to be installed.

I need to build a dolly for this one anyway. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/idea.gif)

I also pulled the EG33 off the engine stand in preparation for the 914-6 engine to go onto it for inspection and complete the rebuild.

Oh and Murphy decided to pay my house a visit and wrecked my furnace. So that was a serious hit to the budget. I guess heat is more important, than cars. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif)

Well it has been awhile and Kent called me out.

So here you go Kent.

A year has passed since I ran my fingers into a 3400 RPM 12" disc sander. And this is how they turned out. Do not look bad at all. I am very grateful this was the outcome.

So this car, not much has gone on, I have purchased / upgraded a few parts, and will be selling off the items these replaced. My car funds are a bit short, as I sold my TDI to VW, who promptly sent me a check. To which I purchased a 2008 MB ML320 CDI. I can tow 7000 pounds, cruise in luxury, and still get 25-30MPG. Towing I get 18-20 MPG. I am quite pleased with it, and wished I got one sooner. That being said it has tapped me out on car funds as it required a lot of tools to service this bugger. I like tools but come on MB, then again I have a ton of VAG tools all ready so is it really any different (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) And I have purchased a bunch of 911 engine tools (IMG:style_emoticons/default/screwy.gif) I really should not complain about tools. And I have more that I would like to have (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drooley.gif)

Oh and my son's have seem to find an affinity for taking out small animals at high rates of speeds. One took his STI and took out a ground hog not once twice. The other one took out an opossum with his Rabbit.

What started out is a simple repair ended up, being a complete front end tear down. Blew the entire lower rad mounts out, the rad support, the inner air guides, the bumper support, and a few other things (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) Oh and I found the odd leak he had on this car. At some point some one put the screw on the right to hold the AC lines to the Radiator boss. It should be the size of the one on the left, not the right, they are used to hold door cards to the door.

I understand the $$$ part but don't stay away from your project too long. There are some other 3.3 fans that need your support. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

The 914-6 is the main focus right now, like to get it done and get dad out for a ride in it.

That rabbit just won't go back together, today I found out that new core support is from a Jetta, I would have to change the entire front end , lights grills, fenders, hood, and bumper to use it (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blink.gif)

And then to make matters worse, the new Radiator and the old A/C condenser did not fit well. A/C condenser was bowed in the middle, rad straight as an arrow. Put the AC condenser over my leg and bent it back semi flat. Hopefully I did not bust the system open (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) I have to tools to fix it, just did not have a tank, otherwise I would just pulled vacuum and purged the system. Popped gauges on it, and it is still pressurized, check again in the morning to see, here to hoping something went right on that car.

Oh the Rabbit Core support NLA from VW (IMG:style_emoticons/default/dry.gif) So I might be getting the wielders, staplers and epoxy back out. Scott I might need to borrow my double barreled epoxy gun back. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Got the core support all welded up.

This stuff worked like a champ. Also used some hot staples to give it a bit more support.

I also did one of these for the -6, need to look at them with the Momo wheel and see if I want to clear it or matte clear it.

Kent that is an easy one as I am a sucker for great design.

So I went with Zero decibel motorsports Bell Crank Shifter for the MT5.

They manly market to the Factory Five guys for the 818s.

I really like it, nothing wrong with Ian's (Coldwater's) design, this one just struck my (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wub.gif) button.

I am hoping to shorten the shifter rod in the trans as it does not give me much clearance back there.

It only comes as the bell crank and assembly, you have to provide the cables, and shifter. Ian's stuff comes with the cables. So they are pretty much a dead nuts same cost option.

I will say Craig was very easy to work with.

We will see how it works out.
