Non-FE Discussion Forum / worst hackjob in a long time
« on: August 12, 2020, 09:38:30 PM »
I fixed a crashed Rally Volvo a few months back. Saturday night
the friend that have PF Racing called. The Volvo had made a new
trip in to the forrest hit a ditch and cartwheeled in to some pine trees,
he wanted me to see if i could fix it. While there he showed me a
SBC out of a Camaro some kid had bought. He showed up at the
shop and wanted Peter to tune it beacuse it was running kind of
strange...... suposed to be a stout 383, block cracked at a main sadle,
welded,bored out and put two sets of bearing in that main, cracked again,
one rod was not a I beam but a J beam :D all 8 bent in some way
the ballance pads grinded away completly and then some. Nice Forged
pistons lightened by grinding away material under the piston pin :o
A welded on piece of angle iron as a balancepad on the flexplate :o
heads where junk.....Good thing for the kid the SBCs are everywhere
indestructibel, cheap and anyone can build one........ ;D ;D ;D
Why do you spend money on expensive pistons and build a pile of
junk like that and destroy the pistons on the way?

Non-FE Discussion Forum / ridiculous incompetence
« on: May 22, 2020, 12:07:12 PM »
Stepson has a fairly new Mercedes don't remember the year but.
It started to have intermittent starting problem. He check the cables
on the battery no problem there . Leaves it to the  autoriced Mercedes
service place. They diagnosed it found no code for something wrong.
So they put in a new battery 400$ plus work :o no change
they put in a new starter 440$ plus work :o no change. they said
the new battery was low so probably bad alternator he bought a new
alternator to change it himself. The first thing he See when he went
under the car is a severely oxidised ground strap from engine to chassie
10 inches away from the starter they changed.
Remove bolt some WD40 and a steelbrush maybe 10 cent, problem solved
It is criminal incompetence autoriced service my ass over 1000$ with out
solving a problem that took half a teaspoon of WD40 a steelbrush, 13mm
wrench and 10 minutes to fix.

Today i made a short temporary comeback in the bodywork business.
A friend that have a company called PF Racing, builds everything from
engines to complete cars.  A customer had crashed his Rally car so i fixed
the dented panels today.  He has his shop in a small village in middle of nowhere.
There is a few bachelor in their 50s still living with their parents.  And the only
thing for entertainment besides hunting moose they have since the gas station closed
Is to hang at Peters shop.  When i arrived today there was what i assumed was one of
them,  you now.  No ambitions no interests,no future, have not bee out of the village in 15
years  tragic life...
well i started on the mangled Rally Volvo and the guy went out the door, minutes later he came in carrying a
Aluminium V8block ??? I ask him what block is that, Its a ilmor,   What?  A ilmor Indy engine :o
What wait a minute Indy as in Indy 500? Yes correct .  Cool where do you found that.  Oh i bought
it in USA.  What are you putting that engine in?  One of my Formula one chassis.   Okay....
What formula one chassis?  Oh i have a couple of them a Sauber and a Honda so one of them :o
I had a hard time to believe my ears if had not seen the engine
Where you going to drive that? Ohh I'm all to fat to fit in it, i cant drive it someone ells have to do that
I'm just building it because i want to! Okay ??? :o carry on then.....I sure meet a lot of strange people ???

Member Projects / Power stearing on the -64 Galaxie
« on: March 16, 2020, 01:04:24 PM »
My stearing box had developed a play in the sectorshaft bearing and wife
think the stearing is so heavy. So i decided its time for P/S, i have a whole
set of the original P/S with that ram cyl but...Naaahh dont like them.
Im not much of a kit buyer so i searched my stasch of stearing components
and found a Opel omega box. Long sectorshaft like the Galaxie

 So i made a
drill guide i bolted to the original box bolt holes, drilled the frame. The opel box is
mounted with M10 bolts and nuts so the holes in the box was 11mm so i put
7/16 Helicoils in them so i could use the stock bolts. But the box protuded so much in to the car
so i gave up on that!  Back to the stasch gave me a Opel kadett,SAAB 93, a lot of dorky FWD GM cars
on the same Platform. Chevy whatsoever, Pontiac J2000 Cadilac Cimaron etc Power R/P

If i weld a piece of tubing to the right side i can make some "factory" looking brackets for it.
This R/P moves the center when you stear, and the tie rods is bolted close together. So i fab a
bracket with the right C-C distance for the Galaxie tierods. So back to the stash and look for
some universal joints. I think Volvo 740 joints will be fine for that

Was a nice sunny day today, -10 Celsius but above 0 Celsius in the sun.
So me and the wife went out for a walk with the dogs on the ice.
When i noticed some really big tracks  5 feet long steps  That's a
god damned big dog i thought ??? on closer inspection and tracking for a while
I'm not so sure it was a dog

Between my hand and the big track is a track after some ordinary Moose/ Bird dog And i dont have small hands i think size 11-12 on the gloves

about 5 feet between left and right frontpaw tracks,  ???
