I yanked the 1.8 engine/trans last weekend. Rear end still has to come out. Must clean the engine bay.

I finished the crank adapters yesterday and the bellhousing adapter is mostly done, should be finished monday morning. It ended up being done on the CNC in the prototype dept. which is fine with me. I took lots of pictures but I left the camera at work. Boo.

I have to trim the crank bolts because they are too long. In typical absurdflow fashion I would grind them down with my trusty angle grinder but they guys at work want to cut them down in the lathe...it would be more pretty but a lot more complicated.

Plain ol' Ford Mustang clutch kit arrived.

I picked up the block from the machinist earlier this week. It's all nice & clean now. STILL waiting for my cylinder heads. Hopefully those will be just as clean.

Pictures coming sometime next week.

Oh, and:

Has anyone tried just using cheap studs and nicking/crushing the threads right at the nut after they''ve been tightened down? Wouldn't that keep the nut from backing off too?

If you've ever stripped out a stud, then you'll know that that method can't work. Think about the nut starting to back off, then just aimlessly spinning, and spinning. I.e. you'll never keep the nut torqued at the correct value. Saftey wire not only locks the nut in place, but keeps it torqued properly through the heat cycles.

Top shelf machining! Wish my adaptor plate looked that good. I take it that's a CNC controlled milling machine?

The bellhousing adapter was done in a CNC. I just modeled it in solidworks and one of the prototype guys programmed and ran it. The crank adapters were made by me on a manual lathe and an 'ez trak' equipped bridgeport. This is an old 2 axis controller that has some preprogrammed canned cycles built in, perfect for doing bolt circles or simple circle/pocket milling by someone who isn't allowed to use the fancier CNC machines like me No one here actually knew how to use it, it was only turned on to use the display as a fancy DRO. I got the manual and did the milling on my day off. Maybe i can convince them it's a POS and they should sell it to me for the scrap value.

I forget the name of this badass piece of kit sitting on the bench in the background, to the right, but I take it you used it to model your engine bay in solid works, and all the components going in?

It's so nice to have this sort of equipment and resources to your disposal! Rest of us peasants are stuck using more traditional machine shops!!!
