Why did you pull the motor? Numbers looked decent for something that hasn't been run?
This frame is un-titled. I got a second Titled frame and engine currently in storage at Levis house. ALL this has to go on the new frame.
And the other engine is claimed 7k miles. So, going to check the numbers on it and then decide which one to use.

Re: 400 four - dry and dirty

I think I mentioned early on Im going to do this one up Rat Rod...just to shake things up. ;)

Fenders are starting to rust up extra nice.



Exhaust is a LITTLE TOO RAT ROD even for this project.



Adding a little contrast and match the Supertrapp...

Re: 400 four, Jesus hates me, build

I think Jesus is hates me. Normally I would love to get nice clean parts in the mail.

I WANT to build a rusty rat rod. But Im NOT going to Destroy good parts to do it.

I made the road trip to Hurcos house and picked up my titled fame and engine.



Rack arrived w Nice chrome. UGH!!!



and the cheapy rim I ordered to replace the bent one. ARGH. The darned thing looks to be NOS!!!

Even has the yellow paint on the nuts! and the whole thing is still coated in a film of sticky oil.

Once I get it cleaned off this thing will really shine.

Nothing wrong with a bit of bling to contrast the ratty part of a ratrod

I know, but Im afraid this is too much. ;D

As I was planning on the exhaust being the only stand out nice chrome.

And now I got a "fugly" rear rim and super clean front. :mad: haha.

Im just dont get to bitch about "clean" parts very often. LOL

Nah, I'll hang on to the nice stuff. As no doubt, the day will come. I want to do full on proper restoration. ;D

So long as its straight, solid and CHEAP. The sort of condition, not worth the hassle to sell on ebay. Yet, you just cant toss it into a dumpster either.

I got new bearings and everything sitting here ready to go in. And I will use this nice brake rotor. Cause, Stopping is a good thing. ;)

I have a bunch of t500 front wheels or bare rims That match that description, you could have for the cost of the ride, it may not be worth the cost of shipping though.

Re: 400 four, Plan B engine

Unloaded Plan B for testing.



I found a funky little repair. Welded and ground. From here it looks solid, but I will have to dig into it.

If you have any insight to what lies behind that cover please share...Its under the clutch adjuster cover.

A pretty protected area from the outside. wondering if something could have gone very wrong inside.



Seller said it has 7k miles. I was really hoping to see 150psi. But this is fine. Still its better than the 13k motor.

Re: 400 four, Plan B engine

Looks like the big bolt holding gear on primary shaft could've backed out. Eating the inside of the cover.
