Pulled the cover on the rear of the trans without removing it from the car.....shoved the phone down the tunnel and shot this picture first try!

Unfortunately.....it's just as I thought....the landing that secures the output bearing is blown out from the crash..(see red car above).....

 

On the upside....I got alot else done.....Installed the new balljoints, tierods, and finished the hybrid axles w/ new grease and boots....along with installilng the calipers I got at the junkyard the other day.....just stock 86 trooper calipers to keep it simple.

 

 

Got the covers back on the diffs......Tapped for 1/4" pipe fitting for vent tube.....

And a pic of the T-case shifter.....cut and shut a bit shorter than it was........still got to bend it a bit...

So....I pulled the Eng/Trans combo.........removed the rear output from trans..........Here's the damage..

 

 

Pretty easy fix.....I just slapped another tail piece on.  I did weld up the 4wd shift collar.....and modified the selector so that only Hi/Lo can be selected....sorry no pics of that.

 

Got it all back in the rig......Drivelines hooked up center and front......still gotta get the rear diff and driveline in and then get it RUNNING!!!...Oh...yeah...brake lines might be needed too...lol

It really is more of a found object art sculpture with an kinetic offroad theme.

 

Everything I've needed up til very recently has be random parts lying round.........just recently started actually spending money to get the last parts. in order. 

 

Not sure I'll make the event this weekend........I hope to at least trailer her there and play.......Competition won't be possible :(  .......I will have to run the ol' EA81 wagon AKA "t-bone" in the event....or just watch....havent' decided.

 

But thanks for the encouragement......I definately will be bringing her up to a meet in WA this summer so hopefully the BoB will be there.

At the rate My project is going it will be a long time before I can run it.I need a engine and transmission to mock up the front suspension,before I can get a engine and transmission I have to get a truck to get parts...But hopefully with this new job I started I can get the truck in the next couple of weeks.So while I wait I can remove the sound deadening on the floor to fix some rust,then put the heater back together,then finish up the wiring,do some work on the dash..Maybe just maybe I will be able to head up that way again.

I predict electrical gremlins in short order.Crimp connectors on vital  engine wires with no electrical tape or goop to seal everything up on an offroad rig...

If you look closely.....all the "vital" ones like CTS, TPS, Injector power etc.....are non-insul crimped and then shrink wrapped.  Other wires like Purge, ERG (which this engine doens't have) IAC and FICD and a bunch of the redundant grounds are cheap crimped.  The engine wiring is 5 ft above the ground too so I doubt it's gonna see TOO much mud up there.

 

It's good enough for now.....mostly I just needed to get all the wires swapped around correctly in the harness to make it run.......Later I will non-insul crimp, and shrink wrap all of them........But honestly It's gonna have an EJ by that point with a whole new harness....I just used this as a "beta" engine....

 

I fear not electrical gremlins.....I know every wire and they are all exposed and easy access so troubleshootin is easy!!!

 

OH yEAH!!! I drove it today.....just moved it around the shop but shifter and clutch adn all drivelines are all in stuffed a radiator up front cause I haven't worked out the plumbing yet to the back but man oh man is it sweet.........CRAWLS in 1st-lo-lo.

I am with Uberoo on this one, invest in a healthy supply of heat shrink tubing, a heat gun and a good soldering iron.  There is one thing that I learned in the early years and that is that anywhere dirt and water can get in, it will.  One thing that I spent a ton of time doing when I put in my injection system is to make sure that all the connections where seals as much as possible. Even at the actual connectors, get a big tube dielectric grease and apply that stuff liberally, if you think you are using too much, then you almost have enough.  And lastly, try to get your computer as high as you can, Say the back deck, B-pillar, somewhere where you are going to be far to uncomfortable being in the car long before the water gets to the computer.  Great to hear it running, much more incentive to get mine going.  I do long to hear the throaty roar of a flat six...

Keep it up, can not wait to see it in action, and you are that much closer!!

I actually preffer non-isul crimp w/no solder and then heat shrink........most solders actually create corrosion later.

 

Like I said...this is a beta test.......everything is just rigged up for now........at the very least there will be lots of electrical tape, corrogated loom, and zipties to lock everything down before it will see any real offroading.

Form will get better as the time goes on and the function gets all the bugs sorted out.
