Car Enthusiast Club [Now Motorcycle friendly!] - First thread to 100k! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

26 minutes ago, Drak3 said:

Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

Okay. So not much got done. Litterally a day of cleaning the boat. We had to fight to get the controler off. Steel nuts on aluminum bolts held it to a board on the hull. Then that board was held to the hull with bolts that you cant get to without taking the controler off. So we had to drill the bolts on the controler off, which couldn't be done because they were rusty and just spun. So finally got the controller off and open so i know what key to order and next time i work on it i'll be able to lube the cables. 

 

Well. Probably whats going to happen is we'll order the key and tach and maybe a tach harness if i can find one. Will prolly just end up hacking the connector off and running wires straight to the mercury harness. Not a big deal but not what i wanted to do. Saturday I'm working on it again and going to do wheel bearings and trailer lights, and change oil in the truck

 

The engine isn't stuck and can rotate. Hopefully once the key and tach show up I'll be able to start it.

We're good friends, I know he won't back out or anything. I'll still get it in writing though, just to be safe.

This looks interesting. Cars turns over, in fact it has a new starter and some other parts, but it only runs on starter fluid. Looks like it might be fuel pump, lines clogged, filter, or injectors or something else with the fuel system. That or maybe the coil packs or something else with the wiring. For $2000 though, it's a Supra, shouldn't cost much more to get it running on its own:

I think I might jump on this, at least go take a look at it and if it goes well trailer it home. I can use the extra money to get the car running well. Newer 7M-GE with 76K miles, should last at least a few years before the head comes loose as they do. Plus it comes with a lot of parts already so I'm sure I can get it back with some man hours. New paint and everything too, this car is gorgeous.

 

I just texted him as well, compression is great across the cylinders. I'll have to see what my parents say.

Yeah I'm certain I can get it running. Then I'll have a pretty minty MK3 for only 2 grand!

He has all the interior parts. And he said he might be willing to throw in some seats from his other Supra.

That looks like what the s10 dipstick tube when you check the oil sometimes. 

 

Unrelated but this is the serial number on the boats kicker engine. Its a Mercury 10 (9.8?) horse 2 cyl 2 stroke. 837 1903

 

And this is the steering cable in the boat. Rightfully dicked. I haven't seen this on youtube yet but it looks to be a cable in a cable rather than a cable on a pully system. IMG_0824.thumb.JPG.935fd6a4a9e30eb5462c29a20df7ec82.JPG

IMG_0809.thumb.JPG.3266b18a7c92a1d5f89fe5fa2ba70f7c.JPG

 

And this is the ignition switch in the controller. I'm going to order a key rather than delete it because I remembered the ignition being on the dash but clearly thats not the case. I should just need a '124' key right?IMG_0821.thumb.JPG.dd63d2d62d3a672db03079a245452ffa.JPG

I have no idea what the key needed is , tbh . Now the switch option looks awesome , doesnt it :P 

 

Most ouboards of that size i have worked on had a rod inside a rod kinda steering system , rather than a cable system , so i can only guess how it operates . But , as you already pointed out , it needs changing . 

 

Take the kicker motor off , put it on a minibike ...

Yeah. I thought the ignition was already in the dash :/ oh well. Assuming the sticker on the ignition is the number for the key... its $7 shipped on amazon. Can't for the life of me find a tach harness so I'm thinking I'm just going to cur the connector off and run the wires from the harness. 

 

Should be ordering the key, a tach, and some gear oil for the lower unit today.

Could happen. I did get it in writing though, and I'm sure he isn't like that.

 

In the mean time I'm waiting for my dad to get home, I want to see what he thinks of the Supra I linked. My mom doesn't like it because it doesn't run but she doesn't know anything about cars and how it's pretty simple to fix fuel issues.

What does everyone here think of Volvo? Classic and modern? As long as I can remember, my family has had a Volvo S60, we're on our third one now (2014 T5) that I steal a couple times a week to get around. From what I've seen, they're not the most well built cars, but the engines are fairly reliable and they are very nice to drive. I'm slowly looking for a car, and I was thinking maybe a C30? Then there's also the classic P1800 that I think would make for a fantastic EV conversion down the line when I can afford it.
