This is not a project that I would recommend for someone without a shop full of equipment. That said,it is possible to do but not very popular because of the problems involved.
Lets start with the shaft. It has this big dildo thing where the end busing goes. This needs to be removed with a lathe.
Here is what it looks like after it is lathed off and threaded. This is a male thread and you will not be able to make this thread with a die. The shaft is waaaaay to hard. This has to be done on a lathe.
The housing is all aluminum and it is a nasty casting to weld.
To get this project finished you need lots of welding fluid :mrgreen:
Im really diggin your welding fluid!! That cast looks like nasty $hit!!
Lookin good though!
since you're not gonna have much room inside for cup holders...i think you should weld some on the outside!
Nice work ChuckB!
This project is officially on hold for about another month while I pump money into my rabbit to get it ready for summer. Its getting a solid lifter conversion,new turbo,even more badass head,and a new intake manifold. BTW im selling the whole top end of this engine to fund the build so anyone who has $1000 gets the head,intake manifold,exhaust manifold,turbo,WG,downpipe for MK1 and dump tube.
Any updates on this?
