I've been using Flickr for my uploads and have been happy so far. Much less douchey.

All photos have been recovered from photobucket. I'll leave them up there for those who are running the photobucket viewer plugin. 

 

Still working on a replacement host.. I think I've found a paid service that could work out nice.. but will have to do some testing with it.

I've also been planning out the cooling system. Will either modify a Koyo radiator to move the outlets or have one custom made. After that, I'm looking at electric cooling fans. (Started a thread about that)

 

I found out today my KA alternator is dead.. Will look at getting it rebuilt locally. Depends on the price.. If it's too much, I'll look for another one.

 

Other things wrong with the KA.. Water pump was trash, and the lifters make an incredible amount of noise. I've got a few plans to try to fix those.

 

Been in contact with someone to modify my gas tank for an in tank pump..

 

Lots of wheels turning.. pictures are happening.

Ka alternator was confirmed to be a boat anchor. Shop confirmed it's not rebuildable.

They are all rebuild-able, its just a matter of if they can do it at a profit. I rebuilt alternators for my father all through High School. Most places want the cores so they will tell you they can get you a new one for XXX amount and need a the core on exchange for X amount less on total.


An idea doesn't work unless you do.

The stator was toasted. I am suspect that when I originally brought it to Autozone they may have shorted it somehow. The reason is, I ran it on the car and it was fine, but not charging. So I pulled it and took it to Autozone... they tossed on the bench tester and it started smoking. Might not have been their fault, but odd sequence of events regardless.

 

Anyway, I found another alternator locally that actually appears as if it was used as a boat anchor. It's corroded and a bit rusty. I am going to get the other alternator back today and see if can swap the parts over.

 

I've cracked a few of these open before. As long as the parts are not riveted or soldered in, I'll swap the parts. If they are, I'll have the stop do it.

I took the second alternator to the shop, they confirmed it was also bad but failed in a different way.

 

Being I didn't know what parts were good and bad, I let the shop figure it out. They were able to produce a good working alternator for $40 in labor.   :thumbup:

Got a little something from our friends across the pond. Will need for when the entire car is painted. I've put a few of the gaskets on already.
