914 Ranch
Trying to find motivation to keep her going and use her before I run out of time. I moved her to the workshop yesterday and today I put her transmission back in her. Need to change the gas tanks out as she has a 6 gallon tank in her now and I have a nice little 1.5 gallon tank for her. Only good for about 5 minutes of run time.

I updated the picture because she looks totally deferent now. So I guess I should do that more often. This pic is 3/28/19.

Wow, pretty far out if I do say so myself, can't wait to see her in color.

Yesterday I got most of the parts back in Carerror and put her on the scale. She always puts a smile on my face.
LF 320. RF 321
LR 497. RR 478
Total. 1616
Those numbers will help to motivate me.
I know, I know...

69 years old. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to work on the cars.
I did put a tranny in last week by hand. So I'm good to go for now.

Carerror is back up on the stands and I am about to finish the details for start up.
She has about 100 laps on her and I have about 3 A/X's behind the wheel.
One of the hardest things I had to do was getting the tire temperatures within 10°. The 911 guys running the same tire were running 31 psi so that is where I started. She likes to swap ends with that much air.
So at this time I have 15 psi in the rear and 14.5 in the front. The rear has nice scuffing on the edge near the first marker line and that is turning a nice blue.
The front shows no scuffing on the outside edge so I would like to have a little less camber. Running 3/4° now and I really don't want to run less air than 14 psi. Going to take a big rattail file to clearance the strut for less camber to try to get the outer edge to get scuffed.
I take the temps in 3 spots on each tire as the car comes back in. At the last race she only had an 8° difference in all 12 readings I took. I'm thinking that the temps were about 230 maybe that's too high.
Somehow it seems to me that I need about 15 more pounds of weight in the front of the car.
Maybe I should move my seat.

So Joe, what are your hot pressures?

Hey Tony, I am sorry, I kept my notes on blue tape on the fenders. I'll have to keep better track of p/t in a log.

Today finished the shift linkage, clutch linkage, throttle linkage, muffler, starter wiring, battery location hot lead to the starter. Still have the carbs to clean and fuel lines in the engine bay, a bunch of electrical issues, change the tires and maybe next week have start up.

Getting more things hooked up today. Pulled old fuel lines in preparation for new lines. Battery Terminal and wiring, found and installed ignition switch and connected it to the circut board under the dash, installed the steering wheel,
Gotta check the wiring under the dash, make sure it is ready and won't short out when I go to start it. Fuel lines, charge the battery and change the tires. Put some fuel in her.

Got fuel pump, tach jumped...

Sometimes I think my name is Homer. Dur...
Trying to stop push in the car I kept putting weight on the right front of the car. Finally getting the car dailed in I'm still thinking I needed another 15 pounds in the front of the car. When I was building the car I mounted the Sparco on adjustable tracks. Not legal in SCCA but is with the PCA. Next time she's up on the scales I'll put me in the car and move the seat back and forth and post the numbers.

Changed the battery and got the motor to turn over. Hadn't heard that in a year and a half. Tidied up the cables under the car. Now need fuel lines from the fuel regulator to the carbs. Put some fuel in and she should fire right up.

You can drop at least 20-25 pounds from the ass end of the car if you switch to a set of megaphones from that big heavy muffler.....I have a pair I'll let you try...
914 Ranch
Finished the carbs and got ready for fuel. Maybe tomorrow.

Working on the interior of Carerror again and made up a cover for the tach. I thought the wires looked ugly. And I made up a new floorboard.

Nice. Is the tach cover a re-purposed bike fairing?

Cool idea - I have a more factory gauge cluster so I cut-down one of those stock-style ABS dash caps and only used that portion of it.

Thanks Tony, not my idea, some guy named Richie from Culver City, did it back in the 70's. I just used less plastic.
But if I had a pizza oven...

Dam, now I am going to have to put a pizza​ oven in my next Bar-B-Q build.

Excuse me Tony, the tach cover is around the tach and covers the wires behind it. I like the windscreens too.

I have to put 8 mounting screws in and it's done.

Put in the 8 screws and cleaned up the wires a bit. Going to have to get back in there once more. I can still see some things that I can clean up.

If she runs I'm going to unleash her onto the streets. I'm sure she has put on a few pounds, all that wireing isn't light. Fusch, there's 50 pounds of fuel now. I'll be lucky if she comes in under 1700.
914 Ranch
Well she doesn't run, saved for the moment by the fuel system. The regulator is not happy with the fuel pump. Ordered a new one from CB and should be after Christmas.
Passenger seat and seatbelts are in. Got to check out the scales, I know that 2 of them are reading light. I need to check the pen inside the back up lights switch, I think it is in backwards. Figure out why the turn signals don't blink.
