Well, the engine is mounted on engine dynamometer...first time for me in this kind of situation, exciting!  :P
It sure looks good on pic, huh?  ;D


The most important thing why I put the engine on a dyno is to brake the cam in. We just have the outer springs mounted during this process. There are a bunch of piezoelectric sensors mounted on the engine for early detection if something is going in the wrong direction, so to speak....lets hope everything works all right! :rolleyes:

First we boosted the oil with a portable screwdriver and we got good pressure very quick...something I've done right at least! :)




Next step on the list is to brake the cam in......

That will probably help a lot fo guys. I know Hakken from Sweden was pretty bummed all his pics from his thread had disappeared. Maybe he can recover them now.
I guess there is no fix for Safari?
You're spot on there!  >:(
This ransom situation cannot continue unless photobucket change their policies! It will be there death on the web...!
I, and thousands of other users, get an email each and every day for chipping in that high some of $400/year to acces of the third party pics, its crazy!

I now use fotki.com instead and so far I'm very happy with their service for like 5 % of the cost of PB!  ;D

I would recommend saving the turbo 350 and your old motor for another vehicle.
To bad you aren't closer I have a 454 and turbo 400 that got built with a street/strip idea, (10 seconds in the 1/4 on all motor) and then never got installed. I am trying to find a buyer for both...and the search continues.... ::) :P
Old motor long gone...itīs in a 68 RS now!  ::)
Iīll try the TH350 first and then wait īn see...  :P

Without big tires I think the 350 will do OK. Might want to think about that low rpm converter unless your motor likes to idle at 6 or 700 rpm.
I think you're spot on there, Kelley!
There are a lot of things that we probably have to deal when it comes to getin the ZL-1 back in the car again... ;)

Hakan,
One good looking ZL-1 for sure. Out of curiousity, why the TH350 instead of a TH400 ? I have a bad mental picture of twisted output shafts and exploding internals after that kind of power metering through it. True, a 350 will hold up to mannerful driving, but wasn't really intended for this kind of duty. Just asking -

Regards,
Steve
Thanks, Steve, appreciate it!  8)
I want to keep the TH350 thats already in the car for several reasons...!
One is money, cause building a ZL-1 isn't cheap anywhere...second I'm not gonna race this car and use sticky rubber so hopefully the 350 should manage with me driving it?!

But you have a point and we have thought about it but for now this is how gonna start!  :-\

is that a bung for a fuel air mixture gauge?
 Also are you going to put a 4 speed manual or more modern 6 speed manual in it with a stick looking hurst shifter by chance?
Yes! I thought its was called lambda probe in english..?
No! Going to run it with the old TH350 I had before....low stall speed and shift kit.

A friend of mine, whoīs a self taught welder, got a mission to contribute to the history of our ZL-1.


A place for the lambda sond to be in....can be useful in the future! ;)

I just got the email yesterday from Photobucket saying my account (Plus20) will not longer be offered and I'll need to upgrade to another plan within 30 days.

However, it appears only the $400/yr plan will continue to permit 3rd party hosting (the ability to copy the link from PB and have the image presented on sites like here vs a link sending the user back to Photobucket). 

Has anybody found a more competitive offering??

Thanks,

Hans

Iīve just started to use Fotki.com as my host for my pics and I'm very pleased so far!
They only charge $24/year for hosting 100 GB, I think that's accurate!

fotki.com

Photobucket are lost in space and hopefully they will change their policy otherwise they don't exist before the end of this year....

Great, Kurt!  ;D

pics loaded fine for me, and i am on a slow connection. I like all the pics in general. What kind of heat shield is that for the starter solenoid?
Thanks!
The heat shield is the one that's in the AIM and was originally mounted on all engines I guess?
Its just a thin metal plate so I'm not sure how efficient it is but I like how the engine designer thought when they made it back in the 60:ies...they knew the solenoid has a place there near the manifold so...

Haken,
I used the 1884R also. Hmmm. I've heard others have the same problem that you did also. I don't blame you on using the studs on that block!!
OK, great. But I think there is different bolt kits out there and they all came to be original but I think they differ in length...?!
No, the studs are great, especially when ju planning of taking the pan off a couple of times as I do.!  :P
