    Mitch Krause's RCR GT40 Build

    Back from the paint shop (at least most of it, snorkel and rockers next week). Time to start putting things back on.

    OK, some pictures. Taken today, just before I rolled it out of the garage and off to the paint shop.

    My Engine Won't fire

    Starter is behind the flywheel. Funny, diesel was in consideration. The most recent fill of the car had been with it on a trailer after inspection, and I had filled my pickup and both tanks on the car by pulling in, filling at two pumps, backing up and filling the other car tank on the other...

    My Engine Won't fire

    Oh, sorry. I should have thought more about the "couldn't resist" and caught that. I guess the pain is too recent to yet be humorous, but I am getting there slowly.

    My Engine Won't fire

    Just in case a little more clarity is required on the starter. Ford small block, the starter tucks along the engine with the nose (where the gear is) of the starter sticking towards the rear. In my case, since the starter has to be mounted to the Porsche Transaxle, the nose of the starter...

    My Engine Won't fire

    I think we have a winner. Got a little bit of an unclear story on what happened (a very reputable electric starter/generator/alternator place). I came to the conclusion after many hours that "I think my starter is turning backwards", so I took it back to them to ask if it was possible to build...

    The rotor should rotate counterclockwise on Ford small block.

    My Engine Won't fire

    The terminals were wired correctly on the starter, there is the big lug (4 Gauge wire from battery onto that one) and the little spade connector that has the 12v trigger wire (14 gauge or so). But I think things are getting warmer.......

    Nope, not the oil cog.

    My Engine Won't fire

    I know the answer to this story, but figured I would share, if nothing else maybe it saves someone else time in the future. GT 40 was running fine (Ford small block). Late one night after softball in early September, thought I heard a weird noise when I started it up. Convinced myself I...

    Mitch Krause's RCR GT40 Build

    Back in early high school, the track and cross country coach and I had a little inside joke. I grew up on a farm, and it was not always possible to attend post school practice and get a ride home, so our agreement was that I would just have to run around the block after I got home (and got done...

    ok. Not sure why this doesn’t work (video link). That will be tomorrow’s problem

    I think this counts. Alternator problem late, ran out of juice before getting back to the garage. Boy it is a much tighter fit than I thought, especially without any rear view mirrors to help out. Link is
