So the crank and rods are ok. but not much else.

You can see the lumps of valve guide sitting in the water



Some fused to the piston



Some piston missing. Don't think that is repairable!



Valves smashed to bits. They have been pushed up into their seats and are nicely jammed in there



Oh, wait there is the pistons, Maybe i could weld it all back together!



Another ODB casualty, very broken barrell





And just for a giggle here its wahts left of the very broken piston

Well we start with this bit:



Got all the engine build bits from RCM through. Bearings/gaskets/nuts/bolts etc etc



Head gaskets for 14MM EJ22



14mm stud kit.



Test fit with the machining on the block



And finally we finished the pinning on the motor. 6 short dowels in each barrel so as not to restrict water flow.



Now I just need those pistons and the new head to turn up.

The rotary is whole different kind of power delivery. Great fun. I'll always have one. Speaking of RX7s. Some new toys for the FC. It's another GT4294r but bigger a/r on the turbine. Tial gates and bov. Bosch pumps, lifter and 044 inline. The a pair of 850cc and 1680cc.

Well I now have some lurvely 97.5mm Wiseco pistons. The original plan was to go with a Woosner Item but with the lea times on a custom one off set being made the choice was made to give Wiseco a call and get a set off them instead. So now I can finally get on and get the block bored to suite.





Been a little busy with the RX7 too. Modded a knackered old Blitz intercooler. Well salvaged might be a better word. was in a state though.







So did this:



which went here:



Then I set about the Manifold, Scooby one to be started soon:







And finally got the 18x10's on the front. I did originally go for 285's all round but that was literally a touch big for the front so a 18x10J front and rear but 265 front and 285 rear.



Oh and the arches for the scoob turned up too. So once I recovered from the motor build and supporting mods i'm going to throw 18x10's on that too.

Very little to expand on at the moment. Been very ill since Christmas. Then with the time off work has really backed up. Got most of the parts to proceed. Just getting the block and heads lapped.

Got itchy and modded the compressor cover slightly..... for no real reason other than I wanted too!







and this....

Can you guess what it is yet?



Exhaust stuff turned up too.

More bits turned up......

Lots of bends, the GT4294R, twin F38 gates........ must mean its time for a squiggley manifold!

Well got the majority of the mani mocked up today. A fine way to spend a day off. Problem is the shed I have at home is that it's used by others as a dumping ground. With a small space cleared this is as far as I got this afternoon. I've used the knackered motor as the mock up. Now the manifold is tacked up the next step is too put the mock up motor in the car and get the turbo position and make the up pipe.

Got a couple of the manifold on the motor and in the car. Going to get the turbo and gates mounted this this weekend and the finishing touches on the lower section of the pipe work so I can start thinking about air box design.










More to follow.....................
