I'll keep an eye out for one, thanks.

Friday bump...Updated some of the interior dash pics and climate control stuff for the seats on the previous pages. Progress on the gauge cluster is moving along and was able to keep everyting original 6v. According to Danzio my system is completely programmable and will be able program ecu to send a frequency over for whatever it needs.

Dual circuit Mocal engine and transmission heat exchanger arrived today. -10 for the motor and -6 for the transmission. These fittings are totally modular so they can be swapped very easily including the coolant ports. Since these heat exchangers don't require to be in the path of air flow the precious little room in the grill opening airflow can be dedicated to the power steering heat sync, radiator and ac condensor. So the heat exchanger will be mounted on the passenger fender inline to the h20 pump and the transmission will see the coolant first. This makes plumbing the lines really nice and tucked away from the front on the engine. The remote oil filter will be on the return circuit back to the motor.



Well they didn't quite fit so here we go...Glove boxes are now accounted for.





Update: Sneak peak at the gauge progress and the gentherm climate controls are installed and the seats are ready.

More gauge restoration detail.



Original oil pressure gauge had an aneurysm...the winding around the bimetallic arm is burned.



OEM wire prior to installation



Restored







So the gauges hit a little bit of a snag...Originally wanted to keep the D4 install on my side but to get a true seal of the cluster and to be absolutely sure the tolerances were good I finally caved and sent the D4 to Kevin. The sheet metal that located the D4 housing and hardware needs to be altered a bit as it locates the D4 a little to close to the inside of the glass and need to come up with a new housing for the back that resembles the speedo housing that seals off the back and allows access to 32 pin connector for the D4 which is air tight.



The next issue was lighting as the speedo housing holds two bulbs that are now gone due to the D4 housing and cuts off light. This requires altering the housing on both edges to accept a bulb and re clock the dog ear on the gauge so practice was done on the one of the spare housings.

Wow. That looks amazing. Thanks for posting the detailed pictures. Ive never seen someone use the original gauge faces with a modern engine. Howd you do the Willys-Overland script? Cant wait to see more.

Dan, there was a lot of luck involved. To sum up how it went down it started out that I was going to convert everything to solid state which essentially swaps factory gauges for ones that come in a kit such as autometer. Typically the housing back is modified to accept the new gauge and the factory face is retained but the needle is autometer.

In this case the newer gauges wouldn't have fit in the cluster since the factory ones are smaller than any after market gauges which need also then to be located in the opening of the factory bezel. Another reason you don't see this done is most restorations in the last century didn't have modern efi where the ecu is progamable to the point it can send a frequency such as an ohm reading to a gauge that is 6v.

The next break came when we were trying to determine the ohm ratings of the sending units for temperature, pressure, volts and fuel level where Danzio reassured us "It's completely programmable. So have him do what is standard for him. We will program ecu to send a frequency over for whatever it needs." We were scratching our heads. Does this really mean I dont have to buy another set of gauges to for solid state conversion...Yes it did.

Getting back to the gauge restoration the faces are made of 3M UV resistant vinyl using factory graphics in black and ivory. There are a few details that didn't get updated such as temperature and oil pressure range are for the original 226. My temperature range should read 160 to 260 and oil pressure should be 80 max but the readings will work for the normal operating range and the D4 will have realtime accurate readings. The other limiting factor of the accuracy of the original gauges would only allow an additional 5% of correction which is due to the linear limitations of the windings.

Having both clusters gave Kevin good selection of parts to choose from. They were in good enough condition to run "as is" but the question was for how long. So I had him rewind everything which should be able to handle up to 12v.

Looks great!

It’s a pet peeve of mine when I see people reupholster seats over crusty / rusty frames.

So are those just cleaned up and painted or did you have to replace a bunch of stuff. Either way, looks great.

So did thee seats get wider with the body widening?

Nice work on the gauges!

The distance between the wheel wells remained the same so the seat widths are 42.5". Other things that fixed them from growing taller was I didn't want to block my view out the tailgate so the seat risers will designed so the top of the headrests line up with the bottom of the window. Since the wheel wells got 5" wider planning on making the arm rests full width to the seat. Custom MIL seat will happen later down the road.

Very nice!

Back to the gauges, are you going to use something to drive the factory speedo?

Fancy looking sheet. Is it easy to remove when you need to work?

Curt really nailed the tin work He needs to have this done today cause a bunch of projects are rolling in and ready to get back to the finalizing the chassis work.

The D4 dash gets the speed from a GPS antenna and rpm from the crank sensor vs the a VSS. The gauges have a little bit of a setback due to the bulbs causing a clearance issue where they rub on the fuel/amp oil/temp which means the whole thing needs to come apart if a bulb fails so we are looking at some LEDs with smaller housings and similar light spectrum and is proving difficult to find. Also looking into changing the main bezel from metallic silver to a brushed brass. Decisions...

Yep and makes the plumbing go away too. Probably about 10 screws per side and only the ones on the shock towers are hard to get. Need to decide on the placement on the reservoirs and locating the battery.

I was wondering that also. I would like to see the design of those hinges. (How exactly they work)

Got the hinges here. Web image search comes up with more pics. When Kodak shut down their web site I lost all my pictures of the build and only have a couple books of prints so the ones I had of the hinges aren't that helpful.Custom Street Rod & Hot Rod Parts Michigan Car Installation | Street Dreams By Ross

These hinges are a super simple design and are available for trunks and hoods and they have way more options now. Since the stainless supports for the hood were made for another set of hinges that couldn't support the weight we needed plan b. The ones we got were close but ended up making our own based of these cause they didn't have enough reach. You could probably get them to work on anything however my dimensions were already fixed. The owner was super understanding and took back the originals and would do business with them again.
