Brian,
I feel your pain. Went through two 044 pumps before putting in a blade fuse to solve my hot fuse issue.
Jim,
What happened to Eagle Day? I though they sold all the correct wires and were down in your area?

The wire connectors are stainless steel or plated copper. They're made of thicker metal and not cheap thin gauge stamped out junk and they come with thick clear or colored heat shrink on the wire end.
They cost more but you get what you pay for.
Jim is spot on.. I use a place in our area called West Marine whenever I need electrical supplies for the cars or bikes. Auto supply stores and stereo shops have junk!

Hate to say it but I never knew of them before... I just googled them and saved their website. Thanks for asking, do you order from them? We would have to pay state sales tax if ordering from them.

Haha… I would have bet a winning Powerball ticket that you were the one who told me about them years ago!!! Anyway, they have all the stuff we need wrt to wiring. I am a big believer in making sure the colors are accurate or how does the next guy know what the heck is going on in there. I have ordered very little from them, but the stuff I have ordered was correct. Luckily I have a few old wiring looms I keep cutting up as I need stuff. The SC's are starting to eat up my old stuff though… seems like they have all burnt up a wire or three for every one I tear down to rebuild.

Well I think all the fuel issues are taken care of for now.
Part of the testing was timing the warm-up phase of cold start in different temperatures. At 70F cols start goes from ~25psi-53psi in about a minute. At 45 it takes 3 minutes. Here is a video of what that looks like compared to AFR for those of you interested.



Here is the AFR / Control Pressure readouts during operation.



And here is the speedo and tach:

Been a long time between updates. I've been enjoying the car this winter, fiddling with various smallish items when time permits. She is running pretty good.

Speaking of engine out, we continue to gather parts for our CIS Evil Engine build. Part of that build will be to port the intake and heads. We are hand porting the heads and making our own injector blocks that will taper bore from 40mm inlet to 37mm outlet. I might market these if we can keep the cost down. Here is a peek.

Peddle Cluster Rebuild

Latest "bug" is a catch in the clutch showed up last weekend.
When I pushed in the clutch it would catch or snag at about 2/3 down. If I went really slow it would bind completely, really fast it would push through. Got the car on the lift and had the little woman press the clutch while I watched the activity under the car. Nothing unusual. Clutch cable was smooth and free. Went up top and removed the wooden floorboard to inspect the peddle assembly and noted some things were pretty wobbly. Time for a peddle assembly rebuild. Ugh. It's been about 15 years sense I rebuilt a peddle assembly, and that was when the Red Rocket was down to the tub for a repaint and full restoration.

I purchased a brass bushing kit from our host along with new rubber parts and anything else while-you-are-in-there. This morning I got up early and met Wayne at Matin's place where we do all my work, bag of peddle goodies in hand.

I quickly was reminded how much this job su-hu-hucks with the seats and steering wheel in place. The instruction sheet that came with the bushing kit is an outline at best, there is a LOT more to this job than half a dozen lines and an exploded diagram.

Here is a picture of the prize:



Dissasembly complete. Big props to Wayne far having a spring tool to remove and reinstall that clutch spring! The throttle bushing had completly disentigrated to dust. Other bushings were intact but worn. Not enough to cause the problem I was seeing though ....



All back together. You really can't see the bushings in pictures as they are mostly inside the tubes.



As it turned out the catch problem was not in the peddle assembly but rather the omega spring hitting the tranny housing. Apparently the brace that the spring presses against had bent. How I do not know but we bent it back and I will keep an eye on it. Not all was for nothing however as the trip home was extremely nice. The car shifted better than ever. All peddle action smooth as butter.

Next is the Evil Engine build. Gray Ghost was eyeng his stablemate today, tellin' that Italian trash he's being put on notice.

Throttle Lever Bushing Replacement

When we were refurbishing the peddle assembly it was noted that the bushings on the throttle crank located on the tranny were not only shot but gone. I ordered bronze bushings from our host to replair.




Used a bit of lithium grease and tapped them in place. The lever had wobbled around enough to become out of round so it took some time to tap both bushings into place.





When putting the lever back on the post the trailing arm now interfers with the lever (no more slop). VERY CAREFULLY jack up the tire until the lever will clear the trailing arm.





Slide the lever on the post, hook up the throttle cables, re-insert the cotter pin, add a little grease to everything and we're done! The throttle action was MUCH improved. Amaizing how you get used to slop.

First Pass Headwork

Been having a nice time driving the car for a change! The clutch feels so better now with all new bushings and the omega spring issue fixed.

Prep work continues on the Evil Engine mods.
A buddy of mine is working on a set of '78 930 heads I bought here on the board. They are just about finished, need to do the last pass which is polishing. He commented on how well they were designed from the factory, much better than "normal" performance cars of the era.
Once the heads are done I'll port the intake and port match the turbo to the split plenum housing. Really excited about this build!

Bad boy got a present for her 72,000 mile birthday, a new 930S wheel.
The crest matches all the other crests on the car, brings it together nicely!

Still plugging away at the engine mods when I get a chance. Porting intake to match the heads (40mm). Still have to finish the injector blocks and then I think everything will be done and ready to install.




With more power comes the need for more stick. Found a set of wide 17's but need to adjust the ET a little to make them perfect.

Thank you, I figured with this car I am going to see every issue that you would come across when purchasing a neglected 930 and a few that you can't imagine! Recording them here hopefully will help others deal with their aging cars or see what they may be getting into when buying a neglected one.
We are coming out the other side of restoration now with the drive train and looking at modifications. When the engine is out and apart we will clean and restore it to as-new standards. The engine will transform from the ratty oily mess it was to show quality. The plan is to keep the engine looking stock from above with the only hint of mods being a larger intercooler.
I still need to restore the interior and paint as it has not been touched, only cleaned up. Probably next summer I will have the car buffed out which should remove 20 years of grime. Then move to the interior and have the seats reupholstered and new carpet put in. At that point this will be a really nice car. There has been some pressure to restore the body back to stock (it is a Dealer conversion from new using factory fenders, rockers, and brake ducts) but I will not do that. This car isn't about investment value it's about enthusiasm for the hotrod 930. It may be my last shot at the 930 of my vision and I'm going for it!

The wheels were picked up from a fellow Pelican (thank you!) and are PERFECT width but the backspacing is 1/2" too shallow for the fitment I want. Getting what I want is going to take a lot of effort but is worth it. We are machining spacers to space the center section out 1/2", which will push the wheel in 1/2". I've never seen this done before so we shall see how it goes.

Here is the current 345/35-15 mounted on 12x15 Fuchs:



Here is the 315/35-17 mounted on 12.5x17 Fuchs

Machining a set of spacers for the 3-pc wheels. Wayne added shoulders on both sides that capture the center section and mate it to the wheel which takes the stress of location off the bolts. It will also greatly aid in preserving proper balance. Should be able to balance and test fit tomorrow, very excited about that!

After a little setback with the bolts (does NOTHING go easily?) we are now to the paint booth. One of the wheels was leaking air so I elected to have them both disassembled, cleaned, paint, then new silicone. These are going to be the most expensive used wheels in the history of used wheels. The things we do when we get our minds set on something ...
