Thanks Brock, with winter coming, I am not sure how much time will have out in the garage. Its not insulated.
Not much has happen in the last few days. Wife has been working the afternoon shift so I been playing "Trouble" with my 5 year son Zac. I did get to the store and buy the new angle iron I needed for the motor mount. At least I can rebuild this in the basement.
My neighbor came over this Saturday morning and asked if could help him move a cord of wood he just got delivered. No problem, got Zac dressed up (its only 5C here) and off we went.
After filling up the storage rack in the back the rest went into his garage. I noticed over in a corner an old car motor. I asked what he was doing with it. It's garbage he said. The block it cracked and a few other things were wrong but i think really hear anything after "it's garbage". The header and a bunch of other parts are Aluminum! Nice high quality (compared to ladders and lawn chairs) aluminum! Can I have it? I asked. Sure saves me taking to the dump. Great! we dragged it over to my garage, good thing the wife is working today, and I started stripping it down.
After a couple of hours between playing with Zac & lunch. I have it mostly ripped apart.
I still have to get all the valves, springs and what not out. Have to separate the pistons from the connecting rods. Then figure out to cut it all down small enough to fit into my crucible.
I am glad he was in the process of rebuilding this motor as there was no oil in it. This old Toyota motor will have a new life as parts of my lathe
