Decent video- For some reason I felt like it wasn't as good as some of the others. I have two more coming out in the next week or so. One will be about the Coyote Studebaker truck and one will be about the 1965 Chevy truck. I was with that green chevy yesterday. We stuck in a bore scope, all cylinders are clean. We Powered up the starter motor and the engine turns. This weekend, I think we'll introduce some petrol and see what the hell happens!
The Coyote truck is ready for a test fire, I think. I plugged everything in, just need to add power and fuel, twist some wires together and also see WTF happens.
I need to run into work and do a quick update on the Hemi Studebaker truck. I haven't seen it in 2 weeks!
Well, the Coyote engine fired up, kind of without the starter button wired- I missed something somewhere, but if I force the power to the solenoid, it fires. The ignition is ON, the starter request is not doing it's job but it will. Eh- I'll figure that out this week.
The 1965 Chevy? That's a tough one. Weak spark out of the coil. Replaced it. No fuel out of the mechanical fuel pump, ran a temp bottle. Timing is off, we reset it back to stock, found out it has a cam & cylinder heads added- so it likely needs the cam degrees set properly. It spins slow, not even sure the engine was built properly. It should be- We got a tiny spark to the fuel for a hopeful sputter, but it took hours and hours to get even that much. So we'll rebuild the dry for 10 years carburetor and fuel pump. Advance the timing and see WTF.
Cap & rotor pointing at #1 and the #1 piston at TDC, with the valves closed- that fucker should've fired. After 10 hours, I said- "oop, fuck it, beer time".
I have a new video coming out tonight, on the Hemi Studebaker. Had to fix son's Ford Focus today- it was merely a bad engine ground. I used a black wire from an SW20. IT FIRED RIGHT UP! lol
Breakfast beer, is a thing but not for me! I'd never get anything done! I wait until all the work is done, then drink as many as I can, really fast. hahahaha
10hours on the AWD Hemi Studebaker today. It has a REG- It's now road ready, plates and titled, (zero inspections mind you) as a Historical Vehicle. The number plates don't expire until 2030 lol
Bet I don't have it past 12:30 am the morning I list it for sale! I still have to install lights, a rad fan and a bunch of other little things. Big plumbing job project ahead- I will be forced to get up early and turn up on time... BOO HISSS Wear a hard hat, work boots etc...
