Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

John's been busy. Most of the wiring in, brake lines run, and fuel pumps in place.

Thanks Andy. Yes, original mono colour (or as close as we could get).

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Cooling system coming together. EWP and controller nicely nestled in behind the passenger side bulkhead making for a straightforward connection to the front of the block.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

John has all the sensors installed (water temp, oil pressure, oil temp and one for a low oil pressure warning light), and has moved the EWP controller to beside the voltage regulator behind the driver's seat. Makes it more accessible than where it was beside the EWP. (no idea why all the pictures have been flipped in the preview).

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

When you use an EWP in conjunction with the modded OE pump housing like that you cannot use either of the 5/8" hose fittings on the OE pump housing as they are now under EWP pump flow direction and due to impellor removal flow will be reverse of what they were with OE pump.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Expansion tank on and all plumbed in. Keen for any comment on the setup JacMac. Electronic speedo drive fitted.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Arrows on drawing show what hot ( red ) and cooled (blue ) flow directions will try to do with that EWP setup you have there. To correct this the hose's from 5/8" fittings on T/Stat and bottom of header tank need to go down to inlet side of EWP and the two redundant 5/8"fittings on old OE pump blocked off.
There is a further possible trap in using that OE pump housing without the impellor in that the pump housing design tends to favour flow to the 1234 bank before 5678 due to internal design which may lead to uneven temps on each bank, This applies more to that early pump & front cover design rather than later rev rotation pump housings.

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

I remember chatting with you at LMC two years ago and it had stalled and you asked them to finish Andrew’s car first.

His is stunning and I can see why people wait for this company to work on their cars as the detail is fantastic.

I am sure you will be very pleased with the final product.

Keep up the great posts

Ian

Re: Classic Car Developments Chassis #3

Able to spend a little time down in the workshop last week. Carb linakges done. Roundel lights and ID lights fitted.

Right hand fule tank stuffed with foam and strapped in place. Going to cost a bit to fill at 43 litres each side...

Can't believe Carmen wanted me to throw my parent's old electric carving knife out a few years back. Turns out to be the perfect tool for trimming foam to size to fit in the fuel tanks.

Seriously good bit of kit.
