It was a beautiful day for the car show today (mid 60's) at Hero's hosted by DKK

I had to back out of the VW Heritage promotion,,,, part of their deal was they wanted the owner to drive their VW to the location and back....

After I started looking at all the stuff I needed to have with me to participate on the salt, and looking just how small the Ghia was, I knew that I needed to have a truck and trailer to haul my junk and car up there and back, and I couldn't afford to drive two vehicles. So I told them of my dilemma and offered to withdraw and they accepted my decision and thanked me for being upfront on my attentions.... So now I need to start saving my nickels and dimes to see if I can afford to make the trip on my own. DAMN ,,, I was sure excited there for a minute or two

The Ghia has been setting like this for about a month chasing push rod tube oil leaks -- -- been so pissed at it I haven't even put the tools away,,,, Did leave a BF hammer right there in case the need arose LOL

Just got a set of super whammy killer push rod tubes from Roger Crawford and it looks like they are gonna solve my problems (I've installed them on the "problem" side and they're sealing) -- so now I've got to get motivated and do the other side -- you can see the problem ones (blue) and Roger's new ones (silver)

[quote="c21darrel"]I have had good luck with JayCees spring tubes.


One of the biggest issues I've had with having an engine this big (2989cc), is the amount of growth during the heating/cooling cycle. And a lot of stuff that works fine on smaller engines, just doesn't hold up with this duty cycle. So I very rarely complain about parts issues I encounter. That said, I've been looking for some super whammy large diameter tubes (to fit the bigger push rods) to address this issue.

During a casual conversation with Roger Crawford, I found that he had had these same issues on his race engines, and had developed these tubes with a higher spring rate and triple oil O-rings -- -- From first impressions, these are perfect (I had to hit the gym to get enough strength to collapse the springs for install LOL)... And instead of using oil for assembly, I used some high temp anti-seize goop I had laying around. SO, I'm thinking (fingers crossed) I've finally solved this issue!!!!

So today the wife and I were coming back from Home Depot, and this primer Oval is making a left turn in front of us and I'm looking at it... and looking at it ... thinking could it be ???? could it be???? -----

Sure enough, there's the Ovalholio sticker on the side window -- The kid I sold it to, has it running and going down the road -- I got pretty excited to see the kid had done what he said and got it running -- It's been two years since I sold it to him, It's still primer and still has the same wheel and tires on it..... But it looked way cool going down the road --

Wife couldn't understand why I got so excited...... LMAO

Here's some pictures I took the day I took it over to his house......

Well,,, The EFI has been in the shop for a while and I've been staring at the car, kinda just walking by and giving it the middle finger because of the EFI screwing up again big time,,,,,, FINALLY, I get a call yesterday from the head honcho, and "they" have finally been able to duplicate all the "issues" I've been having with the unit forever --- --- HOLY CHIT,,, I'm not insane, so they are shipping me a brand new unit as a form of an apology for all my freaking banging my head against the wall trying to get this damn thing to work.....

YYYEEESSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, I've found my ambition for the car again and been out welding and cutting and fixing and cleaning up and .. .. and .. .. you get the picture...... So I've done a couple of thing of note

http://i586.photobucket.com/albums/ss306/Fiatdude/Ghia/20150211_151630_zpsh345gdri.jpg

Also, I've made an appointment with the EFI Guru (His is a wiring harness super dude) and I'll finally be making the change to sequential on the injectors since I've had Mario's cam sync setting in tool box for a while....

So , It's about time I've gotten a happy face about this POS car I've got!!!!!!

So been working on the Ghia -- -- This car when I first got it had a Porsche 901 trans in it, that lasted about 30 miles, then I got a 091 from BENCO trans in Riverside CA -- This thing has been bullet proof so far, but I was broke when I first had it done and didn't have a LSD installed...... So after a few track days it was very apparent that the LSD was needed as I was frying the inside rear tire off as I left every corner --- -- So I had the LSD put in and the trans freshened up. BUT because the 091 hockey stick comes out above the tunnel, I've always had some funky linkage for the shifter... I've just welded in and above tunnel shifter and rod and got it all aligned up.........

http://i586.photobucket.com/albums/ss306/Fiatdude/Ghia/20150221_110959_zpsej2jpprc.jpg

here's where the 091 comes into the cabin,,, all the lines are for my air-to-water intercooler system

http://i586.photobucket.com/albums/ss306/Fiatdude/Ghia/20150221_111010_zpsfyu7jrp1.jpg

Also been meaning to change the EFI over from batch fire injectors to sequential fire -- I've been running a crank fire but never had the cam sensor on the car to be able to do it.... Found 'The Dub Shop' up in Washington and Mario has developed a cool little cam sensor that plugs into the distributor hole,,,, so been working on doing this change over

Got the new Cam Sensor installed -- What a PITA!!!!!! -- -- everything that could screw up did.... Finally went and got my Engine Guru and between the two of us we were able to get the Distributor drive in,,,, it fought us all the way... the sensor dropped right in after that -- Looks good in there now

HOW's YOUR WEEK GOING???????

Got this hiccup going on with the EFI in the Ghia, it starts, idles, and runs for about 30 seconds and then shuts off -- If you run it at 3K or higher it stays running -- -- so Sunday the Electromotive guru says bring it over -- -- I load the car up and drag it over to Corona, we play with everything for about 4 hours and can't find the answer - -- - He thinks it could be a electrical or tuning issue -- DUH -- -- So I decide to take it home and tear apart the electrical -- -- On the way home in the rain, I driving in the rain and I must of gone thru where a dump truck has dumped a load of pea gravel on the freeway -- rocks are going everywhere from the cars hauling ass -- I slow down and don't catch any on my Flex,,, cool ... Get home put the Ghia in the garage, and put my hand on the windshield to push it back a little and look down,,,, Damn it,,, a HUGE rock chip ... If you don't know I had a ton of trouble getting a windshield for this car that fit,,, and the crap glass coming out of China is too damn small and leaves the rubber about 1/2" short in all the corners,,, then with a help of a friend in the glass world I was able to buy on the last USA made PPG front windshield's,,, SO to say I'm a little mad is a under statement --

Monday -- - I start with the obvious, I load a old program into the EFI and it still doing the same thing, so with a help of a good buddy I start trouble shooting the electrical, chasing lines front to rear,,,, so because you can't never have enough light for us old guys to see, I put a Halogen light on the front hood to light up the interior of the car and put a little warmth into the car,, so were jumping in and out of the car chasing electrical runs from the engine to the luggage area and then start working from the luggage to front trunk,,, we raise the hood and carefully reposition the light -- -- -- so after about another hour we have determined there ain't no electrical issues as all the power is still on even when the engine shuts down -- -- which leaves either the injectors aren't working (I need on of those little plug in test lights to see if the injectors are still working) OR they are clogged,,,, which I find hard to believe since I run a 6 micron filter...... SOOOO, my buddy and I are scratching our heads,,,, OK he is scratching his head, I'm scratching my butt.... and I decide I'll get a injector tester and another set of injectors AND another filter and go that way tomorrow ,,,, So, we start putting stuff away,,, THEN,,, I start shutting off lights and look down at the light on my hood,,, the halogen light had rocked forward and the protective wire screen was touching the NEW front windshield -- HOLY CHIT -- -- It's not a good week to be a windshield around me

http://i586.photobucket.com/albums/ss306/Fiatdude/20150303_094617_zpsebsyov1f.jpg

Damn you gotta love this chit -- -- at least both of these things are on the passenger side and I won't have to be looking thru them

Man, With each coil sporting 5 wires, it is making this wiring job a bastard to keep it looking clean, I could of 'hid' it better with longer wire runs, but I was wanting to keep the power wire as short as possible after looping it thru a ferrite core to kill the 'noise' from the coils -- -- I do not want any interference getting into the cam and crank sensors this time ====

This took me 5 hours with building the harness and doing the plugs and it is still not done, This is with only 1 wire connected, 4 more to go -- hitting it hard today,,, again

Was planning on having a nice relaxing day today, It's a beautiful day, shorts and t-shirt weather here in Cali -- Well, My wife and I are recovering from having our kitchen completely tore apart from the ice maker line breaking and hosing the floor and cabinets and walls down -- but after about 29 hours of listening to the dehumidifiers drone on and on and on and on, I decided to go out into the garage where it's nice and quiet and plunk away at wiring up the engine harness for the AEM -- so I decide to make a few runs here and there and get some wires about where they need to be and complete the injector wiring -- I've got the ghia stripped down, all the seats are out so I can get my fat arse in to snake between the roll bars and poke wires thru the fire wall, then I crawl out backwards and get into the engine compartment and pull them thru -- I've been doing this for about 4 hours -- in and out, in and out -- so I finally got the injector wires half way shrink wrapped and I'm getting ready to put the connectors on and finish this chit up,, It's looking pretty good and then I cut them to the length I want -- -- Now AEM has some nice harness, each wire is labeled with what it is for, and they put the harness together with a zip tie about every foot, But all the injectors are the same color and I just cut off the wire .. .. and the labeling can't be seen as it is under the shrink wrap,,,,, Damn it, So I get out the ohm meter and poke a lead thru the fire wall, walk around snake myself into the car, pop the connector off the EFI and start seeing which wire is for which injector,,,, easy peasy -- so I'm backing out from inside the car and suddenly there something cold, wet stuck up my arse -- -- I scream like the little girl that I am and almost launch myself out through the opposite side of the car -- -- -- The freaking neighbors Great Dane had got of its back yard and snuck into my garage was checking out what I was doing ... O Holy Chit, it skeered the living crap out of me

The wife comes running out thinking I have attempted to kill myself .. again ... --So I then end up hurting my back lifting the wife off the ground where she was rolling on the floor laughing and crying her eyes out -- F-it,,, I'm done for today......

In the never ending saga of the weirdest chit happens to me -- -- -- -- I bring you the ordering of the Metri-pack Crimpers

So, I had bought a chit load of Weather-pack connectors thinking that they were the best, I run into Scott Featheroff at Drag Day and he proceeds to tell me the only way to go is Metri-pack and points me at all the problems the Scorpion were having with their ignition cutting out during tire shake. So I talk to Chad and I'm converted.... SO, I buy a big box of Metri-pack connectors, stupidly thinking that the big buck weather-pack crimper I've got will work .. .. .. oooops, Stupid me -- -- So now I'm needing a Metri-pack crimper -- -- OK, I go on Flea-bay last Monday and buy a moderately priced one and click the 2 day shipping box -- cool, I'm ready to go -- -- I get the shipping confirmation, and with nothing else to do while waiting for these crimpers, I start following their journey to me -- Tuesday they're shipped from Texas, OK -- -- Wednesday they are in Oklahoma, ??? --- Thursday they are Kansas, WTF -- Friday they are Colorado, This is getting plain stupid -- Saturday they are in Vernon, CA,,, Cool at least its the right state -- Sunday,,, Nothings happens on Sunday -- -- MONDAY 7 DAYS LATER, at 4pm I receive them,,, That's right, I get 2 pairs of crimpers. I only paid for one -- -- And the kicker, the return address is from Orange CA

So, in my best Ricky Ricardo voice "Lucy, you got some 'splaining to do !!!"
