@iceman510 Do it! Get her back on the road.

@]2eDeYe, the guides were still mint this time, I can’t explain what happened other than the Cloyes timing chain being junk. You can’t keep the audience in suspense about your solution....I think I have one too, but it’s pretty radical. 


I’ve been driving it for a couple of weeks now in this form. I’ll get some “completed” pics up soonish.

Here is the current setup. The air intake is temporary, and all of the fuel injection wiring is still in place, just bundled out of the way. 

It is a 79 L20b with a 280zx flywheel and clutch bolted to the KA24e transmission. I’m running a bypass fuel pressure regular for the Weber 38/38. I had to make a custom rear sump pan and carb spacer thing. The engine mounts needed tweaking, and I did up a distributor pedestal to use the stock 96 hardbody ignition. 

For being such a kluge, it works surprisingly well.

Long time no update.......


The old L20b was worn when I put it in, now it is worn out. The bores are all slopped out and would need machine work to be right. It sounds funny on 3 cylinders...


After I get a couple of things in order, there is a V shaped solution sitting on the engine stand in the garage. I’ll update when it gets interesting.

and where's it at now?

Still in Arkansas. I thought that I was moving and sold it. He hit a speed bump and took out the oil pan. Last I heard he is rebuilding a KA for it.
