I make engine cradles out of old derilect shopping carts. Nice and portable, cheap, environmentally friendly, easily tailored to any engine.

Yeah, but, that one of Hank's looks to be a work of art. Something I'd like to have since my OHC pontiac will probably sit in one for years before being placed in an actual engine bay. PS, I need parts if anyone has any, I.E. manual flywheel, bell housing, N.O.S. valves,power steering bracket and pulleys, ect, Thanks, Sid

Check out TheSilverBuick on the forum here, he did a cool build for his Firebird and may have some extra goodies laying around.

Thanks for the compliment. I get things done, but they are usually far from perfect. I have one set of spare NOS valves (in GM boxes), but I "think" they are for '66-'67 4bbl heads. Four different valve stem lengths were used in the run of these engines, 1bbl and 4bbl engines used different length valves (because chamber depth differences) and the 230 and 250 engines used different valves (same reason as above).

I don't have any other real spare parts from there. All I really have is enough parts to build my turbo engine. A 1bbl intake/exhaust and carburetor are the only "extra" parts I really have. I don't have a manual transmission bellhousing, but I do have a manual trans flywheel, but I need it to engine dyno my turbo engine, plus my Firebird has a man pedal, so if I decide to ever go to a manual trans I'll have it on hand.

Also, Pontiac V8's and Olds have the starter on the opposite side as the OHC L6 and Buick's. The L6 starter is lower down than the Buick one due to the L6 being a deep skirt block.

I'm going to go bump my thread. If you have any specific questions about mine as away there smile

The Pontiac OHC block doesn't share any common motor mount location or bolt patterns with the Chevy block, so it would require a total and complete cut up and re-weld of the stand to make it work.

Might be able to just purchase the lower engine cradle parts from Tlowe & make your own front & rear mounting plates?

Trans mount has B.O.P. hole pattern.

Yeah, I have engine stand adapters made for them and that's what the bellhousing pattern is.

Yeah, anytime, and, I mean anytime you think something is gonna be eaey, of course it's twice as complicated, especially with the OHC Pontiac. So, I'll quit thread hijacking now and go bang my head against the wall. Thanks

Been trying to make an oil drain adaptor for my Camaro.

Problem when using a standard -10 fitting, it points straight down & the engines cross member is right there.

Example:

So I am trying to figure out the angles needed to clear the frame & point in the right direction to the oil pan fitting.

I will probably make another one because I do not think I got the angles correct.
Practice makes perfect?

I tried the adaptor, & like I thought, the angle was not good.

Made a new adaptor today. I actually timed myself how long it took. 3.5 hrs, glad I like doing this sort of stuff. crazy

My mill is small & I can't take big cuts. I could use some new end mills. Aluminum piece was a billet chunk 6061 T6

Here is the last one I made w/incorrect angle.
It points towards the rack & pinion steering shaft.







Will post some pics of the better fitting adaptor tomorrow.

I bought some used wheels. Should be able to use them on my Camaro & Syclone w/the correct adaptors.



Going to get them powder coated @ some point.

Thank you Beater.

I need to take off the new adaptor I made to post some pics of it.

For sure, the little things take some time to fab up.

Got some honey do items to do before I work in the garage again. mad

It was getting better & better ,except for the last 2 weeks.
Getting more & more pain, hard to sleep. crazy

Saw the surgeon & he wants to do another MRI to see why I am not getting better. I did an X-ray & he said the work he did looks great.

I have been on modified duty @ work.
Any over head work or above my shoulder type of work really bothers me.

Thanks for asking.

I got a different hood & cut a hole & added a vent for better cooling of the engine bay.







My old hood with Trans Am shaker.





I like the Cowl hood better, but that is just me. It is also lighter.

I like the look of the cowl better too, but the vents don't look too bad. Its amazing how much hot air exhausts out the open scoop on my Firebird. In fact, I'm 90% sure it's why my air intake temperatures are high on the car because the air is being pulled up by the area of low pressure on the top of the hood, not to mention the extra push of high pressure under the hood.

That said IT'S HUGE! How big of a snail are you putting in there?!?!

Will this affect your cooling system?

I will be starting off with a turbo I originally bought for my Syclone, but I decided to use the stock style turbo for the truck.

So, I will use that one on my Camaro initially, it's a 62-1 T3/T4 Hybrid Turbonetics turbo.

I will later install a larger one. Something like a GT42 Garrett.

Don't know if the intercooler will affect the cooling system yet.
It is actually larger than the stock engine radiator.

I am going to use a better engine radiator, so hope it all works out.

Thanks for asking!
Sorry to say no real updates . Life's been getting in the way and low finances with no pay increase at my job for 7 years now. Bad resession still?
Currently I had a bone spur removed from my heel of my foot so hard to get around. I plan on mini tubbing it soon, it will be my first time. A bit nervious! My car still needs a lot of work and parts also, not having the funds to purchase the parts It gets a bit depressing.
How's your foundry doing?

Its much easier to let a full size foundry cast the bigger things. I just got my 3rd new intake design from the 2016 year finally cast. Its a true EFI intake also designed and intended for turbo use, it reminds me of your intake. So i'm starting off 2017 with a larger list of things i've already designed to get cast and into the hands of inline enthusiasts.

Hank sorry to hear of the health issues and money woes. Wouldn't it be fun to hit one of those big lotteries and never worry about hot rod money again? It's looking like I'll spend the next warm season working on my dozer, bobcat, and tractor. Time left over will be using them on our road. This winter in kicking my old butt! laugh

Lottery winning would be fun, but I'll never win it, never bought a ticket.
Keep plugging away on it. Why not just get it running and driving? Just throw a cheap paint job on it. They are much more fun when they are driven.
