weekend update 2/18-2/19 2012

Sat. I cut up my inner quarter panels to make some storage area for fluids and what not. Took about 30 minutes to map it out with a sharpie and cut the panel up. Took the rest of Sat to go to the metal store and cut/weld one side back together, still need a door.



Sunday worked on Scouty rig. Cut down a Mark VIII fan so it would fit inside the radiator tanks and test fitted. Just had to trim 3/4" from the shroud and some other tidbits of plastic. The cut off wheel did a nice job on the cutting. Test fitted it and he has enough room to clear the water pump.

Worked a little more on the 392 swap. R290 came by and helped fit the Mark VIII fan to the radiator. There is a decent amount of space available now that the shroud is trimmed down. Because the fan draws so much juice I'm upgrading the alternator to a CS144.

I was at Sunriver Thurs-Sunday with the family. Good times. Today I drug my Dad's scouts over to my garage and started disassembly for his rear 4-link.

Under this pile.


Stay tuned.

The CS144 can be found in 95 Caddilacs (Eldorado, Seville, Deville, Concours). It puts out 140 amps, 100 at idle.

Good info...thanks for this. I will be looking for a new juicebox this summer...


As for my weekend I took the GOOD WIFE and we went to my hometown to have a mediation session with the EX wife. Both my boys are wanting to live with me...and it looks like they will be!

So we are now switching gears in our new house to get things aligned to make the best of this new era! Much will change...but it is so exciting.

/forum/general-chit-chat/1045939-could-use-your-thoughts-karma-points-weekend.html

Looking forward to having my boys around me all the time. It has been a long 8 years since I last got to be full time dad.

Matt Those 3 red wires are for the heated windshield. So you can just remove those, and glue the rubber cap over them. Connect the that heavy duty wire I gave you to the Bat terminal.

Just a note for those thinking of more juice, you will need to make a couple changes. The stock 10 ga blue wire is not big enough to handle that much power, and the stock amp meter might just melt.

For Scouty rig we put a terminal block on the fire wall (circa 1990 chevy pickups have nice ones. ) From the alt to the terminal block is a #4 or #6 wire. The original blue alt lead will connect to the terminal block. So that wire will just feed the cab. The second blue wire that comes back out and connects to the starter will be moved to the terminal block too.
Matt will run a new #4 from the terminal block to the starter to complete the charging loop back to the battery. You can get #4 welding cable for a reasonable price and solder up some connections. I know I posted something about that before.


HOS good to hear about the boys.
Don't forget you will be claiming them on your 2012 taxes. Might want to let the EX know about this just before she files her returns next year. My bro went through that issue with his ex a while back.

I was just going to buy the adapter for Si to CS, then run a large shut wire to the batt directly as I have a pick up and may batt is right by the alt. The amp gauge maybe wrong like that but its shitty anyway.

Hope to do this when i am home for R&R in April. Among other things.

That's even better to go right to the battery from the Alt. I guess the amp gauge will measure the usage, vs the alt output.

Yes, it goes through the dash and down to a plate. The stock body mount is gone and so then there is a tube that goes from the plate down to the frame.

It will move but not much since its only reading a small drop. But its not really that good anyway.

Also won't need a larger wire since I am only going at most 12'' to the battery. Could do 6 gauge min. at that distance and be OK but I will make it bigger than that. I will over do it as I have some extra 1/0 laying around. If I can find a terminal to fit it and the alt.

I have one of those adapters, but then bought 2 or 3 of the CS-series pig tails and just hard wired it into place.

Cheaper than the adapter, cleaner, too.

I then ran a 4g battery cable from the CS130 (105amp) alt to the Ford solenoid, bypassing the dash.

I'm trying to decide if I put the CS130 into the new wheeler, or buy a CS144 before I do the swap. I've heard "Buick Roadmaster" as a good choice for getting the right clocking CS144 in 140amp trim.

I got a little time in the shop.

I'm waiting on parts to arrive to finish the steering redo, so I worked on the FI side of things a bit.

One Goldbox distributor now Duraspark'd



And a new hole in the firewall.


This should let me use the stock GM firewall plug thing, by pressing it from the engine bay to the cab, and using two pieces of flat-strap to hold it tight.

ECM wires come in in the "elbow" of the heater duct, and will then go up and over and mount the ECM under the glovebox.

Spent more time last night soldering up wires and getting relays installed and so forth. Awaiting a coil plug before I can really be done setting things up.

Started to mount the HEI module to the distributor last night, too.

Discovered 1979 heaters use a larger fan than 1973. The aftermarket larger-squirrel-fan modification would only gain me a touch bigger fan, so I'm leaving it alone.
