I was putting on the engine cage/back bumper (for the first time since buying the car) so we could fit a skid plate and I had to go back to the stinger due to interference with the muffler. Am I going to be able to use a stinger for the ride on the 16th? Seems like I'm losing ground on having the car ready in time.

I lenghtened my rear cage to clear the quiet exhaust.

I'm half tempted to say screw the vw engine and just start the Ecotec or Honda v6 swap now. The cost of new heads would pay for the engine adapter.

OK. With 16 days left I'm not going to let you off that easy.
16 days away.
Three hours to change a head.

8-12 hours to install a new rear adjustable torsion center.

That leaves you with 15 spare days. Very Happy Smile Razz

Talk to my bank account and my finance manager(wife). I'm getting all sorts of grief over it being back at Daryll's again. I just got a new 36mm Dellorto to replace the Weber also. Meh. Maybe I can get it done. Lee said one of his customers left some 14" travel 2.5" body Bilstein coilovers at his shop, so I am waiting to hear how much that guy wants for them. I found some 041 heads with dual springs and 40x35 valves for $300 on craigslist also. Right now the engine is torn down for new rings also. I had so much blowby it was blowing oil past the sand seal.

I'm a definate maybe at this time. I'm still tinkering with the carb and timing. Other than that I've driven it probably 60 miles without issues and it's almost dialed in.

I've been out to Saguaro Lake several times. Is there somewhere I can meet up out there so I don't have to go south to Mesa to meet up. I'll be coming from 35th Ave and Bethany Hm Rd. I usually meet up in the parking lot or just through the gate at Butcher Jones.

I haven't been out in the Baja in forever, besides tools and water, what else would be a good idea to take along? How long do you think we'll be out so I can tell the wife when to start worrying about me?

Spare throttle and clutch cable. Plugs, points, cap and rotor.

a stinger is absolutely fine, that's what i run, there is no spark arrester law for the Rolls that i am aware of.

Conundrum, we can meet you just through the gate at the butcher jones overflow lot if you want. we're usually out for a good 4+hrs i think, i'd give yourself a little buffer room, say you'll be gone till later in the afternoon. who knows, sometimes we all go to "Red, White & Brew" for lunch after wheeling around in the desert all morning, nice to be in an air conditioned building eating good grub after a long morning of offroading in the Az sun Cool

Preston that sounds like a plan. I'll just need to know what time I need to be there by. Smile

I swapped around some more jets and found what appears to be the right combo, I'll find out later when I go to Eric's for those wheels. I was having a lot of stumbling off idle and minor lugging of the engine while crusing. I noticed that during quick throttle blips there was excess fuel comming up and out of the Secondary barrel. After using a smaller main and larger air correction that seemed to have done it.

Smile

trying to do math here Laughing we all show up at the QT at 7am, so maybe a litle bit to give everyone a chance to get there let's say we leave QT at 7:30 we should get to the overflow lot around 8am. so maybe something like this:

Be at QT by 7am, grab some gas, quick morning snack.
Leave QT at 7:30am
Arrive at The Rolls at about 8am

Sound good to everyone? input is welcome.
