Sunday, 21. March 2010

The car show Biler i Bella was showing the prototype of the Danish supercar, the Zenvo ST1 to the public. So my two sons and I had to go se this amazing supercar that seems perfect in every way.

You can see more pictures from the show at my flickr account.

Painting the Drum Brakes for the Second Time

Monday, 1. February 2010

The first time I painted the drums I did not know what I was doing so it is actually a surprise that they have lasted this long.

Drum Brake - Sand Blasted / Zinc Primed
Drum Brake - Sand Blasted and Grinded
Both drums had been sand blasted some time ago, the one on the left is what they looked like before I started working on them. The drum on the right has had zinc primer applied. Before zinc primer was applied I grinded the drums to get off all the surface rust then cleaned them with cellulose thinner.
Drum Brake - Painted Black

When the primer was dry enough to apply paint, the drums were painted with enamel flat black paint. Mounted drum brake with wheel spacer.

New Parts Arrived Today

Friday, 4. September 2009

New parts from summitracing.com and up22.com arrived today. From Summit came my new camshaft, which I have carefully selected with tech support from Summit and Comp Cams. It came along with a lot of other very nice parts as you can see in the picture. I am of course looking forward to have all the goodies installed and find out how my new valve train performs. But it will be a while before I get that far, I have some rust issues and other things to deal with first.

New Parts - Camshaft, etc.

From up22.com came my fiber glass trunk lid with spoiler, rear bumper and two front inner fenders. I wish I had googled up22.com before I ordered, in my opinion their products are not of high quality. I have checked the trunk lid and it needs a lot of work and trimming before it can be fitted. I should have ordered from vfnfiberglass.com or glasstek.com instead.


Engine Rebuild – part 1

Thursday, 16. July 2009

Friday evening Michael pulled the engine so it was ready for me to work on. I started to take it apart Saturday morning and everything went fine. It quickly became evident that the cam shaft and lifters needed to be replaced. Both the intake and exhaust lobes on the cam had been worn quite heavily on cylinder number six.

This week I spent cleaning the engine, painting it and checking it for wear and tear. Mechanically, everything seems to be fine and I only need to change the cam and lifters. That is until I decided to get a solid (mechanical) roller cam instead of a hydraulic flat tappet.

Some of the things I did this week:

Intake Manifold Needs to Be "Ported"
Intake Manifold "Ported"
As you can see in the first picture the intake manifold has some leftover aluminum from the casting and it should be grinded. The leftover aluminum is removed in the second picture and it was quite easy to remove.
Valve Covers Painted
Engine Block Ready for Paint
The valve covers have been painted. The engine block is ready for paint.
