Keep up the good work Jacko, I do like the enviro booth. Might need to get one for the shop, it should increase productivity.

With your qtr glass gap issue, the only fix is to dick around with it until it fits.

Going well Jacko, the adjustment of those gaps can be a bastard. Take your time, you'll get there.

Not a huge amount over the weekend.
Got the second piece of bundy tube bent for the transmission.
Bought the hook thingy for the handbrake and put that on. Glass is still not in.
Installed the shifter. H gave me a hand to adjust the shift rod connection. Not sure if this is normal but if we set it in park and tightened the rod, it has trouble selecting first. That is, it doesnÒ€ℒt seem to throw far enough. Conversely, if we set it in first and set the rod, it does not engage park. I gather park is more useful than first and have left it at that unless there are other suggestions to try- hint, hint.

The console arrived through the week. A tip for everyone, ask the sender to use mail and not freight. Freight will cost a fortune. Will save this as a surprise for when you see the car. Had to remove the console mounting brackets to get it in but it test fitted easily enough.

Repainted the power steering bracket as H did not like the black. Bought the mounting bolt and spacer from NPD as a kit. While focused on the power steering, I sorted the hoses I have and found the correct ones. Cleaned those up and will fit them once the wiring to the oil sender is in. There is not much room down there.

Fitted the engine oil dip stick tube after cleaning and painting. The crappy looking chrome dip stick handle came up really well with a clean.

While I was at it I also fitted the trans filler tube and dip stick. Mounts up well to the hole at the back of the Edelbrock head.

Then the alternator. I had cleaned this up previously and avoided painting it as I was undecided on whether to use it or not. Fearing nothing and as I am reading a biography on Nikoli Tesla, I thought it was worth a go. If you think Gina Hancock is rich on the back of her dadÒ€ℒs 2% royalties deal over the iron ore leases in WA, spare a thought for Tesla. He sold his patent for DC power to Westinghouse for a royalty off every kilowatt (?) of power produced. A few years later, Westinghouse/GE approached him asking to break the deal; naively but happily he agreed. Imagine how much his estate would be collecting now?

Anyway, I decided to pull the alternator apart, to see what is inside, clean and repaint it.
Here is how the cleaned alternator started:



I removed the three, well two and a half actually, bolts holding the two parts of the unit together. One bolt broke off as I untightened it. Must have been rusted too much as it did not take much before she broke. To cut a long story short, I drilled out the remnants and retapped the hole; worked well.

Getting the thing apart revealed a big heavy thing on a shaft



I cleaned up the other side and casing, being careful not to lose the springs behind the bushes. I used the magical kero and a paint brush, to carefully clean the crud off from inside and around the windings.

Here is how she cleaned up:



After masking and painting, and regreasing, it was time for reassembly. I knew holding the bushes in place was always going to be tricky as the springs push the suckers out. At this point I can hear Donauto saying, Ò€œbet that took him agesÒ€ and he may have been right had I not recalled seeing a TV show a while back that mentioned a trick to installing these suckers.

I cut out a piece of plastic thinking that was it then had a closer look at the inside of the windings. I unbolted the plastic thingy holding the bushes in and then realised you use a pin inserted from outside into a hole in the bush holding assembly to retain the bushes while you insert the big thing on the shaft.

Here is what I am talking about:



When the bush unit is bolted back into the case, the pin, in this case the smallest drill I had, protrudes out the back of the alternator. The thing under the drill bit is actually a little bolt that holds the bottom of the unit in place.



You reinstall the shaft thingy and remove the pin, thereby releasing the bushes to contact the shaft. Snazzy hey?

Bolted the cases back together and will look for another bolt through the week to complete the job. To be on the safe side, I might take it to an auto electrician to have them check it for me before bolting on the pulley. I put a multi meter across the battery and ground terminal and spun it and recorded a voltage but this is far from a serviceable test.

Have returned to the battle that is the wiring. After bundy tube I love those bendy, colour coded and easily accessible wires and plugs. Talking about things electrical, I had intended to start the engine without the MSD box. Unfortunately, as the engine builder used a Ford duraspark dizzy, it needs an ignition box of some sort to work. Will wire the box in first up.

I havent done a stock one.. but the info I got for mine.. Set it in 3rd or Drive..
As if you're having trouble selecting the others.. no big deal.. but if the drive position is 'half' selected between D and 2nd.. hmm you'll toast the trans pretty quick.

Also, the error difference is halved.. ie its split from the inside out.. rather than from one end.. if that makes sense...

Jacko, the lever on the tranny or the one on the shifter may be the wrong one ie, one of them is too short.

Nuts, I will measure the arm length on the other shifter, the console mount, to compare.

I'm back.
Looks like there might be 10mm difference between the arm on the floor shifter and the one that was fitted to the car (console shifter). I will swap things around and see how that goes. Just have to convince H to give me a hand again.

Nice thinking Nuts.
