Update on zCar

And sadly it isnt a good one, but before the heartbreak here are a couple shots that I took while I was at the shop on friday...

I really really love this slight dump on the tip, so... I took another shot of it.

Where the battery is mounted. I know that some of you are thinking that I should have kept it where it was, but with all of the extra 0 gauge wire that I would need to run to mount it behind the passenger seat it would negate the savings and the weight offset.

ECU & EZK mounting plate. Passenger side foot tunnel, I will be adding some type of protective plate to mae sure some feet don't get too kick happy.

And now for the heart break...

Remember how I posted that hilarious bit of the junkyard engine having a crack in it that looked, and felt, like it was only on the exterior? And how I JB Welded it together in hopes that it would "fix" it, even temporarily?

Well... It wasn't only on the exterior... This bucket is filled with coolant AND oil...

Yep.

The result was bound to happen, but I was really hoping that the engine would have at least started and moved under its own power with that block. Proof of concept... and maybe a boost of moral?

It isn't all a total loss though as YoshiFab has a 92 b230 block at the shop. Hopefully it won't be much longer until we see a video of it starting.

'till next time
