x2 on the Cerakote, great stuff, don't breathe it!!

I hope you had the manifold hot tanked in the stuff meant for alloy and not the one used for cast parts!

Is that a Squarewave 200? I have one also, great machine. I bought a gas lens for it, had a lot of TIG to do on aluminum docks.

Jet washed.
I'm decent with the tig. Getting better. I needed a new mig and they had a two for mig and tig combo with a $1,600.00 rebate. So I upgraded my 30 year old 110mig.

If it's not too bad you should be able to lap the ports to flatten them, it the warpage is between the two sides it will align when it's bolted down. remember it's an air cooled motor so things move around a lot.

Looked at the intake today. Twisted about .020. It probably would have tightened down flat. I just had them mill it flat.

I installed a time-sert in one of the stubborn studs. By the time I was done removing it the threads were too loose.



Cleaning up I found this on the floor near the engine. I looked at everything to see where it may have come from and canít find anything. I have rotated the engine several times and it could have fallen out?? I looked at the turbo feed fitting in the PET and didnít see it. That made the most sense to me.
Embarrassing, but Iíll deal with egg on my face before messing something up.

There is a ball about that size that sits in the hole under the idiot oil switch. That would make sense - Fell out when you rotated engine. No drama. Just fit it back in at re install.

Not to be a nit-picking Richard about what Alan said, but the 9mm ball (like yours ) actually goes under the fitting that the idiot light sender screws into.

Its purpose is to help prevent oil from continuing to trickle through the oil supply line and into the turbo bearing cartridge after engine shutdown- potentially coking, etc. if it were to do so.

79 #610 Winter Projects. Advise Needed

Thanks guys. Intuitively I thought thatís where it went to prevent drain back from the turbo feed line. But itís not shown in the PET.
Last thing I want to do is Assume.

Interesting - it is not in the picture for your year, but is in the parts description (page 51). It is however in the pic for the 1987-1989 PET (page 46).

^^^ That is not the first time I have seen a part my car has not shown in the diagram but shown in the later year diagram.

It is an aftermarket addition, that came on later cars.
TK sells a ball/spring kit - that works even better if there are still drain back issues.

All Turbos 1978-92 have the 9mm ball bearing in the turbocharger oil feed block.

In the 1978-83 parts diagram, it is on illustration 110-10, final item listed -- but not on the drawing, and no reference number assigned, just a dash (-).

Should the 9mm ball bearing and spring kit be added to the 3.0L turbos?

Rahl, I just looked in the parts manual for the 3.0L Turbos and it shows the same thing as it did for Deez's - the ball is not pictured () but is listed in the parts description (the very last item on page 27).

Thanks Ronnie! I thought it had one but the last time I had it apart was about 1991.

After drooling over Brianís 930 Targa engine and looking at the poorly painted fan housing and cracked cover on mine.




I stripped mine the rest of the way and plan on making another trip to the powder coater and zinc plater.



More work but it should look pretty when done.

Well the fan housing is junk. Lots of electrolysis and cracked. I ordered a replacement magnesium unit from Germany. Iíll probably just get a new fan too. So depressing...

I’m stuck in parts hold for just about everything with the Engine. I have been procrastinating on installing the fuel lines after reading a couple threads.
What a build up for nothing. Lens kit with the special line connector is the best ever!
Both tunnel lines and the two front tank and pump lines took about an hour. The whole job with reassembly will probably be two hours max.






Lens fittings fit really good.

Your poject is coming along great! I thought the same thing when I did my fuel lines. Hardest part were the new bushings but even that wasn’t too bad. Please keep the photos coming. With everything your doing I would recommend using a colored sharpe to keep track of what you’ve torqued. Moving between different parts of the car made me second guess what I torqued, especially when I was waiting for parts to come in over the course of several months. You can always clean the marks off later with mineral spirits when your done.

Thanks. The sharpie is a good idea.
And the dang grommets were the hardest part. I gave up trying to pull them out and pushed them into the tunnel. I'll hopefully be able to fish the front ones out with the new shifter install later.


And the reason the last photo looks wet is I discovered that McGuire's rubber cleaner and conditioner is a great lubricant for installing rubber grommets, boots, ect.
It's like KY for rubber installs.
