Re: McCopy mk 5

Looking good mate, good to see your making the side pods a stressed member, adds heaps of stiffness to the chassis.
cheers John

Re: McCopy mk 5

Another good day in the shed, crap weather so toy time.
Have paneled the inside of the chassis, the inside lower panels are riveted and the top sides are screwed so you can access it inside for fuel tank and gear change components.
Cheers

That's looking really good Russell, I can't wait to get to that stage. Be a while off yet though. Keep the pictures coming.

Re: McCopy mk 5

At last, the Mk2 fuel tank installed and the lower side panel glued and riveted in place.
Had a small problem with the first tank due to a measure once cut twice issue. Much happier with the new tank anyway.
Now it can come off the rotisserie and I can restart the assembly when we get back from another holiday in Australia, going up to Port Douglas for 10 days of sunshine.
Cheers

Re: McCopy mk 5

Thanks John,
Just squeezed this trip in before we will probably have to start treatment again, land back on the Tuesday and back to the clinic on Wed so we should be refreshed for what ever the results are.
Still got lots of work to go yet, got to assemble all the motor / systems yet.
Just getting my head around what is needed for the computer so will pick your brains.
Given that I am not running a Microtec dash and already have an oil pressure system, do I need to run any air temp sender? running ITB`S means that there is no plenum to take common air temps. Should we take air temp elsewhere? I also have separate water temp gauges on the dash.
Do I need to run fuel pressure sender thru the computer? as it will also be manually adjusted.
Any point in putting in exh gas sensors in the tail pipes?
Where are you at with your axels?
All the best
Russell
Ps Judging from the scale sizes on some of the belts for sale.....big bubbers

Re: McCopy mk 5

yeah they get pretty bloody big alright, air temp sensor depends on your ECU, I'm running an OEM commodore ECU so I just have the air temp sensor zip tied to the front cross brace on the ITB's. as long as its in the air stream somewhere close its ok,
fuel pressure is set to injector type and forget, no need for any connectivity to ECU.
exhaust gas sensors, unless your going to run a self tuning closed loop type ECU, no. most only operate in idle anyway.
axles are getting made in New Plymouth as we speak, so it should be driveable by the end of the month. then panel and paint .
cheers John
