    Got my new fan on my new radiator. Clearance is tight between the water pump pulley and the fan wiring. The fact that's a 16" fan, puts in perspective how small the cooling system is.

    I have a long tube header from the 1.3 that won't clear the inside of the frame rail or the block and adapter for the 1.6. Any suggestions other than stock manifold? Calling all zuk heads. @kyleg336

    I ended up buttoning up the exhaust and wiring on 1.6 swap today. Was almost ready for a first start /break in when I remembered I spent 20$ on 16 oz Lucas Break In oil additive. Drained 16 oz of fresh engine oil out of the pan accompanied by 6oz of coolant. My heart sank. Hopefully the intake gasket is allowing coolant into the cylinder and not something much worse.

    Intake manifold wasn't torqued down, but I went ahead and changed the gasket anyway. Spoke to Cary at gotpropane.com and he said you risk the rings not seating and breakin in if you break in a rebuilt motor with propane. So, might be throwing a Weber on the 1.6 for a break in session. Did some trading with @89xjnc and got a rough Hedman 3900 header which will clear my block and transmission adapter. Hoping to get this thing running after Christmas.

    The TC pump bracket finally came after about 2.5 month backorder. I was starting to worry that this would be what held me up from starting the motor, but it's my mechanical aptitude, procrastination and fear of failure.

    I haven't put any extra coolant in the motor since I pulled the oil drain plug and found coolant, drained it. Replaced the intake gasket. Bolted everything back up. Cracked the oil drain bolt again and found more coolant (3 weeks later) Feeling pretty bummed, as this motor was supposed to have been rebuilt, and the only thing I can attribute the coolant mixing with oil to is a bad block. Suggestions ?

    Had to hit harbor freight to get some c clamps. I spent too long yesterday trying to get the outer ring to seat with bolts alone.

    I've been getting by with just a brushless dewalt drill for too long. I've wanted a drill press for sometime. Found this old Duro unit on CL for 75$ and decided to take a ride to pick it up. From what I've seen, it's circa 1950ish. Previous owner wired in a new drum switch. Still has an old 1/2 hp motor. Hopefully I can find a pulley to slow it down even further, as it will likely only see mild steel and some al.

I’ll do my best to fill in the details later, but I wanted to get some photos up before it gets some paint.

    @DirkaDirka875 absolutely killed it. I gave him a list of wants, some tube and bunch of Toyota parts and the rest is what you see above. He knew what would work and what wouldn’t and I couldn’t be happier.

    Got to see it in person before it left @DirkaDirka875 shop. Jason did a great job on it and you should have yourself a solid rig.

    Had the day off, so I got to work covering up all those pretty welds with my favorite primer.

    Decided to do hammered brown on the engine cage.

    I bought this crusty pile out of KY, in 2015. Leaf spring front, 4 link and coils rear, carbed 22r, dual cases, worn 38”s , hydro. That’s the night I brought it home. 347A94B3-DCBC-4107-8695-6CAB4F5AD625.jpeg
    I changed some stuff, painted it, bought a parts truck from @Exploderpilot for the propane kit. Wheeled it every once in a while, but deep down, it was still a KY pile. The rear suspension was hack fab, and I made it worse. I bought some four link parts from @Nastynate with the intention of getting it right. After spitballing on the amount of work it was going to take, @DannyH and I decided to build a single seater front engine Toyota buggy with the parts you see from the red cab truck.
    Well, I got a new job, Danny went to school and the plan went to the wayside. I bought another junk truck while I was in training for work and needed a trans, which I bought from @kyleg336 . He introduced me to @DirkaDirka875. And the plan started rolling. I believe @Stuntman Autoworks might actually have the KY pile hidden somewhere.

    Then I bought this truck for its parts at the tail end of 2019. It was loaded with aftermarket Toyota parts from a time when Bush was in office. I parted out most of it, but cherry picked some good stuff. @89xjnc introduced me to that guy. AB05EF14-93C8-4184-9E94-63C0E3156AB4.jpeg

    Got some time today to finish painting... for now. I’m done with cosmetics for the time being. This motor hasn’t run in about three years.

    The buggy is looking good man. I Dont know if you've got lines let, but I know a lot of people that have had good luck with alliance hose in Greensboro.

    Switched out my old Toyota pump with a drilled orifice for a PSC TC 1200 unit. Started figuring out what hoses I’ll be able to reuse and how I’m going to route them around the motor. Also considering running a remote power steering fluid cooler with a fan.
