Re: Moving Alternator to driver's side - Existing bracket?

I made brackets for under the distributor to hold a D21 power steering pump and an adjustment pulley as the pump was solidly mounted. All with a $75 POS drill press, bolts, nuts (no welder then) and some washers. https://i.imgur.com/3spyHUU.jpg You're hired! :D Alright then, I'll get off my ass and...

Re: Moving Alternator to driver's side - Existing bracket?

The AC mount is a HEAVY!!!! cast iron monster. Make your own for a simple alternator. An L20B air injection pump mount has to be lighter. I hear ya, but the only fabrication equipment I have is a hand drill, hacksaw, and cheap 110v mig welder (I have a Tig but still learning on that). Neither the M...

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

The idea of a missing tooth is interesting. I had planned on removing material, or add a counter weight to avoid an imbalance, but my V1 design is definitely overkill. I was on the Fusion360 forums and a guy was helping me with some of the finer points of the program. He whipped up a simple sheet me...

Re: Stripped top starter bolt

yeah, I think I'd have to remove my oil filter to make some room. I was also trying to avoid drilling through the metal plate that is sandwiched in-between the block and the transmission. I did some research and these guys seem to be edging in on the Heli-Coil monopoly. Time-Sert http://www.timesert...

Alternator - T1 and T2

This is a 55A Hitachi/Nissan alternator. Anyone remember which spade is which, and were do they get hooked up. As I remember, one is sensing (connects to BAT) and one goes to dash Alt light? I think my Alt light was alway slightly glowing, and I need to add a resistor somewhere. I think. IMG_2938.jpg

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

I'm using a few wraps of electrical tape around the the sensor to keep the vibrations down on the housing. That, and the sensor is just undersized to the closest drill bit, so unless I get the darn thing machined, this is how it's going to be. At some point I'll CAD a new bracket, 3D print a prototy...

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

I had to take off my crank pulley to get to my old crank sensor bracket. Rebello set this up way back when, and he used two of the bolts for the front cover to mount the he bracket. Unfortunately the bolt is very long and once the the trigger wheel is mounted on there you can't get the bolt out. I f...

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

I currently have a Motec CDL3 display with track kit, IO/ logging but have decided to sell that (if anyone's interested...) and go with a C125 instead. Unknown.jpeg I'll design a mount so it can be quick-released to keep the stock look of the interior, but have something fun for track days or canyon...

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

As I began to play around with the cam sensor wheel and sensor, it became apparent that the spray bar was getting caught on the cam sprocket when trying to install the valve cover. So I had to shorten the spray bar a bit. Made sure the screw didn't block that last hole on the end. Fit's well now. Be...

To be clear, the sensor will be mounted in the valve cover, flush with the outside surface, as represented by the black tower it sits in.

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

Having had to time to reflect on it, it is wildly over-engineered and I'll likely make a change soon. BUT it was good to know I can actually design. There was a learning curving to printing as well, but I managed to make it work IMG_2462.jpg "Installed" IMG_2464.jpg Approximate sensor location IMG_2...

Re: '69 510 - Lysholm Twin-Screw Project

Here are a few photos from some past progress. As I mentioned I bought a 3D printer (Creality CR10 S4) to prototype some parts. IMG_2445.jpg IMG_2463.jpg The first thing I need to really figure out is a cam sensor mount. I had started a different thread about this a while back and here is where I'm ...

Moving Alternator to driver's side - Existing bracket?

If I'm ever going to supercharge this 2.2L I've got to move the alternator to the driver side to make room for SC and plumbing.

Anyone know of an existing mount I can buy?
Or am I going to hove to fabricate this too?
