The donar car is a wrecked and poorly repaired 1984 carb omni (sad day for the omni)
Nov 7th it is hanging in the car
I left the engine in the chassis to hold it all in place while it is being tack welded into place. I measured from back of the bed to the center of the shock stud, then measured from center of wheel hub in rear to the center of the front hub to center it..
November 30th 2005
Trying to figure out how to join the sheet metal to make it look ok/nice looking
and make it have some strength to it..
This is how I set the rear steering solid: Took the shaft out of the powersteering rack and centered it on the K-frame.. Cut some square tubing and slid it over the ends and welded it solid. Keeping in mind I need some hight off the K-frame to have room to change out the Outer tierod ends.
Welded in some 2" square tubing from rear to top of frame and one to the bottom
of the K-frame
In a triangle to give it some strength ..
December 1st it is all cleaned up and 40% injectors installed with accufab adjustable regulator..
used a pressure washer to get the bulk dirt off, then sprayed easy oven off spray on it and left it for only like 3 minutes then basted it.. ( Note: it will turn aluminum black if left on to long!!) But it does remove stains and paint..Did wonders on the K-Frame.
Right after getting most of the wiring put in.. (below)
Dec 5th installed sheetmetal between cab and fender wells.
Took off the non-AC bracket so I could use it on the front engine.. The plan
is still not to have to use an alternator in the rear engine but not
sure how the rear computer will do if not recieving a clear signal from the alternator. I hope it will just be happy seeing 13.7 volts from the front
alternator at the battery.
Got the fuel cell in
I have found another rampage in much better shape and built the front firstto where it runs and now onto cutting out the bed and installing the frame here is pics of the second backup click here to see the new rampage
Wiring!! Always fun!Thinking megasquirt engine controller..
Thanks to Russ W Knize for
the wiring info on his website
FULL OF UNDERSTANDING THE ECU AND THE WIRING/codes
This guy put a mopar smec in a Ford and has helpful wiring info
I have decided to use 2 A-555 transaxles from 87 Daytona Shelby
They both have 387 final drives.
Whats going to be cool is I can adjust when the clutches release one before another.. To maybe change the launching?
This is going to be a whole new world of learning!
Ordering 15' push-pull cables from ebay for the clutch cable
and the 2 shifter cables. going to be using a shifter from a shadow
and modifying it to hold 2 cables Should be interesting to say the least!
