It's awesome.


It's your car, just don't ruin it.


This seems like an elaborate ploy to get me to say "I like the D".

Going to see if I can use the lower front apron of a early seventies Volvo front panel I have to replace this. I like the look and function of the vented slots.

Then add a small chin spoiler like this, I like the look and it will also help direct air through the vents

Some rust above and below pedal box area, above is because of heat shield / sound deader on engine side traps moisture. Be glad if you don't have it.

So I have been pretending I know how to build a motor, well not really it had great compression but still freshen it a bit, surfaced head, lapped the valves, replaced valve seals, front and rear main seals, better cam, header, and a Weber carb. So it's time to put the valve cover back on and it just to ugly, lots of mounting nubs, ribs, raised lettering plus the usual fresh air port and PCV valve location. So here's my experiment, I'll wait to see how it works before calling it a good idea.

 

I want to be able to draw fresh air into to engine with out having a port in the valve cover for a hose to the air filter or a breather so the oil filler cap is going to become my breather for fresh air being drawn into the engine

IMAG0944_zpsqlqwzay3.jpg

IMAG0948_zps7208yn5q.jpg

 

It will stick down where minimal oil is being thrown around and as long as I don't have to much blow by it should only have air entering the engine until shut down

 

So to draw air out of the engine I built a baffle in the back of the head using the same screen out of the baffle the factory had in the valve cover, I wrapped it around a vent tube and inclosed it with a larger tube  to limited oil being drawn in, then ported it out the side of the head. The PVC will be run inline in the hose to the intake.

And the clean looking valve cover after some welding and grinding

Happy to find a set of 4x100 staggered Libre copies from CSI (Carrol Shelby International). What I found on Wiki: American Racing sold the Libre molds to Shelby, who marketed the Libre under their own name. Some 13" Libres have raised lettering on one spoke reading "SCCA", indicating wheels that were specially made for SCCA's Spec Racer program.

In my backwards neck of the woods we called the American Racing 200s "Coke Bottles" but it does seem the rest of the world called them "Daisies". Hey we were pretty homophobic back then and the only Daisy we'd let on our cars was girls wearing Daisy Dukes cut offs.
