I've been down with the sickness for the last 3 days and lost the best weather opportunities to be productive.

Joe needs a couple really important items taken care of before that trip and my car isn't anywhere near ready either. It's honestly not looking good at this point for me to do anything more than codrive the 901 UTV. It was going to be really tight already without being sick.

oil and filters change
new steer tires at very least (a new full set of 10 tires will be here tomorrow after inexplicable shipping delays of a week)
one weather checked coolant hose
rotted out oil fill extension
wiper blades and a broken or disconnected squirter line as long as the cab is up.

car needs rear driveshaft pulled and slip replaced - parts enroute
sleeve made for under carrier bearing on front shaft to nuke vibrations at speed
correct O2s - I goofed on application matching motor year vs harness year
new air filter mounted. it's located and I have all needed plumbing
new passenger floor made to fit around air filter
battery relocated (might have a solution but I don't like it)
main power run to battery
new fuse blocks wired
tune for new motor (this is definitely on really hard part to get done in time, particularly with the car not likely done for this weekend)
input bearing, housing & yoke installed in tcase - waiting on snap ring that I just ordered
exhaust finished and hung
trans rebuild finished (farmed out)
case and trans installed
driveshafts installed
at least 1 tire swapped, hopefully 2

oil, power steering fluid. I think that's it.

doable if I manage to kick this sinus infection or whatever it is AND if I don't do much in the way of day job. I'm feeling well enough that I'm really antsy to work on things instead of being happy to be bed and couch bound but not well enough to actually work.

Title in the mail today! Shows

Previous state/brand: pa reconstructed
Brand:

Will be interesting to see what NY says about that. And about a title in my name a week old. And stuff...



I’ll get on that next week.

I saw the truck at AOAA yesterday. Good to see it out and about! Looked around for you to introduce myself, but didn't see you the couple times I went past.

I was in a UTV in the morning and at main pit for 4400. I was all over and wrenching on my hog the rest of the day. Managed to just skate into finishing it to race today.


As far as Joe: No issues, no complaints.

Driveline vibe at 45-55 is annoying. Worth looking at an angle gauge someday.
Trans issue presented once today, not on a hill, in expected circumstances. Confirmation continues.

6.5mpg per odometer. Assuming odo is close to speedo, actual mpg ballpark 7.2 running 70-72 with around 6,000 in the box. I was super light on all items. Didn’t get moved into the truck whatsoever pre-trip. Hope I didn’t piss off my friends too much borrowing tools all weekend to finish assembling my junk

I cruised through the campground twice (though once was at 0300 when I arrived, not knowing where the pits were) and missed the Pete too. Funny.

I figured you were involved in racing. Considering the weather earlier in the week and then yesterday and today, you couldn't have asked for nicer weather on Saturday.

Having some thoughts about hot water and heating. The coldest weather operation I expect is at Hammers. If this doesn't keep up for that, I'll throw a diesel hot air heater in that'll keep up with anything.

There are 5kw Eberspacher diesel fired hydronic heaters apparently out of Sprinter vans on ebay. Run 2 loops from that, one to a thermostat-controlled heater core with fan in the cab, the other to a thermistor controlled heating loop in an insulated tank for hot water. I only plan to heat shower water, the sink can run cold. Turn that loop on before going out for the day, come back to 30ish gallons at 110˚ and enjoy. Could do additional tie-in to heater hoses from the engine to harness engine heat to preheat shower water, and preheat engine coolant for winter starts.

I haven't torn into the heater box but I believe it shares one heater core under the passenger seat for both bunk and dash heat - and it doesn't heat for shit.

common heater prices for that Eberspacher are $225, I'm trying to get one for $150 right now. 12v two wire NC valves are ~$35ea. pressurized coolant tank and heater box are free out of parts car. need circulator pump and thermistor for hot water shut off. Eberspacher control system appeared to throttle to low around 80C in a test I watched on youtube, and that's warmer than I need for hot water.

Big issue I see is the two loops competing for relatively low output in cold weather. Just need to manually turn off the side I don't want to run when I care a lot about the other. Seems good enough to take the chill off in a small space while knocking 2 birds out with one stone.

Either that or I'm WAY overcomplicating things when I could run that for hot water with no valves, and spend all of $3-400 on a knock off Espar/Webasto hot air diesel fired heater.

I thought about putting the Eberspacher in a loop with a small hot water tank or seeing how it could do at ~1gpm as an on-demand (I think nowhere even close), but I think either way, running tapwater through it long term would be likely to plug it up. Maybe I risk that and run two separate systems for relatively cheap. It's definitely my style to misuse and short cut, it seems.

Espar makes a 5 way valve so it can heat the wh loop and then the engine loop automatically. We use it with our coolant heater. U can also just run the coolant though a plate heater for on demand hot water.

I wouldn’t think I’d have enough coolant thermal mass for on demand hot water?

Plate heat exchangers are pretty damn efficient at swapping heat, I bet a large one could do on demand hot water. The fan coil units come in a bunch of sizes if you want more heat out of it also.

@Mr. Mindless I have a water to air heat exchanger with a fan and circ pump available for really cheap if you want to go that route.
It was in a townhouse, but "didnt put out enough heat" (it ran off of the hot water heater and I suspect that they didn't have the temp high enough), so they replaced it with a gas furnace.

probably not worth it if it was residential, plan to keep most things 12v to avoid inverter losses.

It is residential, probably not worth it in that case.

I dunno, sometimes it seemed almost as big as this thing is. And the Dakota always held more tools than this did on its first trip, I had to borrow everything.

We use a 30 plate heat exchanger. I think the coolant heater circulates 140* and when the engine runs the loop is 180*. The hot water will scald the shit out of u. I have not really run it longer then a shower, rv shower with an on/off at the head, so not sure if it will overwelm the coolant heater but i doubt it.

Not sure how your exchanger works but it might work?

I don’t have an exchanger (yet). Scalding hot from 140 is more than I’d expect. You have the full engine coolant loop you’re working from for this, so 11-14 gallons at temp? That seems like a lossy way to do things when not readying to start a cold engine, lots of uninsulated radiant space off the block. But also decent thermal mass to warm the loop back up from short duration hot water use. Hmm.

You could just make it simple and run shower off an Ecotemp L5 for $125.
I have mine mounted under the counter top with an external vent rigged up. I think Smike's is similar. Add a furnace and stove to the propane loop and you've met 3 of the requirements for legit RV in NYS.

106.3 Passenger registration
(e) Motor home.
A self-propelled vehicle designed as a travelling place of abode. To qualify as a motor home, a vehicle must have at least four of the following facilities:
(1) cooking with an on-board power source;
(2) a gas or electric refrigerator;
(3) a toilet with exterior evacuation;
(4) heating or air conditioning or both from an on-board power source separate from the vehicle engine;
(5) a potable water supply system including a faucet, sink and a water tank with an exterior service connection; and
(6) a 110-125 volt power supply separate from the vehicle engine.


Speaking of which, how goes the title status with NYS?

Been too busy to make time to do 3 things that I need to take care of at the DMV, one of which is seeing what they have to say to my fancy SD Motorhome title.

I'm aiming to not have propane on board aside from for grilling.
