I hate that bolt, I have the same one weeping on my Duster.
This foam gasket that sits between the master cylinder and the brake booster just fell apart when I removed it. Can one order one of these? Or maybe make one myself? Is it there to keep dust and dirt out?
Make one. That would be easier than trying to find one
I’m not recognizing that part.
I think it goes together like this, but I could be wrong. It was years since I took it apart.
Masked and put primer on the block today.
Hey, good to see you back!
Some more photos. Painted the engine and gave the engine bay a good scrub. The bay came out a lot better. It's quite ratty and a lot of the paint flaked of. But at least it is clean. I'm kind of in a hurry to get it out on the road so I might might not paint it. Just go over all the wiring and tidy everything up. The engine came out brighter than I expected. But I'm quite pleased anyways.
That is a cool old bike.
Old triumph hard tail chopper. Old 650 Bonneville engine?
Yeah, that bike is really cool. It's not mine. I share the space. All I know is he said it is a Triumph
Installed the new oil pump and pickup tube today. Was going to put the oil pan on too, but two things made me stop and think. 1: The when the pickup tube was bottomed out in the pump it was not pointing right. I had to back it off and that made it feel a bit loose. I installed it with Loctite. It did not feel right to try to force it almost another full turn. 2: I had two seals for the pan. One is slightly beefier in some places. I don't know if you can see it in the pictures. One is probably from a Fel-Pro kit and one is from a MR.Gasket kit but I don't know which one is which. I guess I can use either one?
Good to see you back on here!
Thanks! Good to be back
very rarely does the pickup tube feel right were it needs to be [my opinion] i always put a couple small tacks of weld for my piece of mind
I have been doing more work on the Duster, but I forget to take pictures sometimes. Here are some though. I managed to split the ballast resistor at the wiper motor in half. Clumsy as hell. Could this be glued back together and still do it's job? I doubt I can find one in Sweden. Even though it might not look like it the bay is way cleaner than it was before. I redid some wiring and got rid of all the old wrapping of the wiring and redid it. Still looks kind of messy with all the loose ends and my tape tags.
Got the Edelbrocks installed today. I had planned on painting them blue. But I read that it was hard to get the paint to stick and not flake off, and that It might be good to let them breath. So I went with no paint. To be honest I'm not to fond of the aluminum look.
I test-fitted the alternator to see if I had the right brackets. It seems I have, but that I might need to shim it forward a little to get the belt in the right place. That is good because it is very tight at the backside of the alternator and the front of the Edelbrock head. Some pictures before shims. This is the way it is supposed to sit on a 360 right? Then I ran into problems. My Steering pump brackets are not right for the 360. This pump and bracket came of my old 273 engine. Can you help me identify which pump I have and what brackets I need? I can go with aftermarket stuff. Can I make this pump work for me or do I need to get a replacement? This bracket on the right is the only thing that came with the engine when I bought it .
Another photo of the pump I have. I found this on summit. Looks like it might work. Borgeson Universal 802412
Yea, that looks correct on the Alternator
I finally managed got my generator in place so that it aligns right. Had to make a new spacer for that to happen. Also got a new bracket for the servo pump and that aligns too. Just need a new belt. Any advice on the correct belt. The one I had on my 273 is now too long. The bracket I got is an aftermarket thing. Here I'm just test-fitting the alternator. Will use washers when it goes together for real. Also test-fitted the Hooker Competition header. Some say you need to use an 90 degree oil filter adapter. My Oil filter fits nicely now, but would the adapter making it easier to change filter when the engine is in the car because the header is in the way?
Cleaned and painted the old LD340 intake today. I got these Mopar Performance Valve covers when I bought the 360. I started cleaning them today, first time I really gave them any attention. I found RTV under the cork gasket and I looks like the previous owner took a grinder to them. The 360 came with this intake and these valve covers. Since I tore the whole engine down I don't yet know why someone took a grinder to them. I guess it could be the intake hitting them, or maybe the old 360 heads, or both? I will test fit the intake and the valve covers and see whats going on. Maybe it could be fixed with JB Weld if needed? Some pictures. I got this 7 blade clutch fan with the 360. It's too big for my old shroud. I used to run the fan underneath it with my previous 273. I think I will go with the big 7 blade fan now though.
Wow, a 4500 converter on the street, was it off the shelf or built for you? Is a lock up or non lock up ?
