10-16-13 hose 6 sm 10-16-13 hose 5 sm 10-16-13 hose 4 sm 10-16-13 hose 2 sm 10-16-13 hose smI finished up attaching the heater hose in the engine bay. I had purchased a smaller diameter hose with two adapters. I cut the original heater hose, inserted the adapters into it and then spliced in the smaller diameter hose. Did have one problem today. When I tried to close the engine lid, it hit the compressor. Since there is no adjustment on the mounting bracket and it uses the factory holes, I would assume than when the engine swap was done, the engine might have been mounted a bit higher than the stock height. When I pull the motor I will address this with some spacers under the engine mount to lower it slightly. I need about a 1/2 inch.

 

10-16-13 steelies smI found a set of freshly powder coated steelies. They arrived today around 2:45. By 4:00 I had had the tires mounted and balanced and the wheels on the car. Not that I lust after instant gratification.

10-17-13 condenser clearance sm 10-17-13 condenser smYesterday I was getting ready to take a drive when the lid wouldn’t close so I removed the compressor without doing a lot of checking. As I was told, the clearance issue was the condenser. I remounted it to make the clearance closer at the front edge and the lid now closes.

 

 

 

10-17-13 engine mount crossbar smThe rear engine crossbar mount shows that this motor likely came from a cabriolet. I found a standard rear crossbar on eBay. Today I bead blasted and painted it. When I pull the motor I will install the newly painted part. Does anyone know if the center piece that attached to the motor and the crossbar needs to be changed as well?

 

 

 

 

10-17-13 Certificate of Authenticity smMy Certificate of Authenticity arrived today. The car was Polo Red originally and built on June 28, 1967 at the Karmann plant. Might be interesting to see if I could find the original motor and transmission.

On Saturday, I traveled a couple hours south to attend Euro Fest at the BMW factory in Spartanburg, SC. It was well worth the trip. The organizers had met their limit of 400 cars which meant there was a wide variety. Lots of Porsche’s, Ferrari’s, English cars, etc. Here are some of the many pics I took of interesting cars.
