  1. Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    So i have gotten familiar enough with the truck to realise that most of this doesnt do anything Suspicions confirmed when i noticed that the part near the firewall doesnt actually go through it, its all part of the original Mitsubishi loom, and comes from the other side of the engine bay, around the grill, and back up the other side chop it out i reckon hers some of the BS i deal with Unlimited Power!, theres a few weird joins like this, both other ends go back inside the cab, with a long length of do nothing wire. Iv cut them all short and left the joins for now incase they actually do something Kind of funny, there was 3 sets of wires for the washer pump. and none of them worked (they needed to set the pump ground back to the switch, i fixed that when i first got the truck) and the air horn wires did a whole loop around the engine bay All the wires including the spotlamps stuff now fits in the split conduit behind the grill now at least i wont need to buy wire for a while. i totally removed what i could, had to cut some off where the loom splits inside the cab as it was just going to turn into a huge mess if i took the cab fuse boxes out and deloomed everything Looking better. the conduit only houses some 3 core wire for the washer pump (which only uses 2 wires), so i think i will remove it and run a new wire down the drivers side and across the grill with the headlamp stuff. That way the passenger side will only have the holden engine loom, and i can plug up the old loom grommet

    7.9:1 is roughly what my sidevalve morris minor is after i bumped up the compression i would say go knock off 2thou from the head and you will be up to a little more than standard. Measure it if you like, you can get close enough with a flat bit of plastic card held to the combustion chamber with grease and a syringe from the vets, thats how i matched the volumes in mine

    Got behind a new dodge 2500 or some such aith duelies the other day. It took up the whole road but my tray was actually alot larger. It seems they don't use the tray and just also own a trailer

    Goob some anti corrosion primer on IV got some more rust down at the front of the sill, so once I've done that Il spray it full of blackguard and cavity wax Should look as good as any other part of the truck once I smooth the inner rail out with seam sealer
  5. Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    Weld in inner layer Add second drip rail layer Weld drip rail moulding back onto it Better than a bought one eh

    That's where you're wrong kiddo
  7. Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    Oh, just a little bit of rust

    registered at a custombuild? so can get away with "oh its on the pre cert paper luv"

    Il remove that hacked bracket, welding up all the unused holes and I might shift the engine loom to the LHD position as seen in red
  10. Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    So I installed a pair of dual tone mitsuba horns behind the grill
  11. Tortrons's 1981 Mitsi L200 Clubsport

    I hate the mess under my bonnet, it causes me anxiety and electrical nightmares. Have gathered the nervous systems from a couple of dead commodores and am thinking of the best way to redo it. Anyway, that brings me to the air horn, I don't care for these smaller air horns, the red is grating, it's pointing the wrong way, there's a million miles of wire wrapping around both sides of the truck to reach it, they hacked a bracket to install it, and Im kind of keen on getting the bay looking factory with minimal loom showing

    Flathead tappets do that when they stop rotating Ling out

    Build the 850 into a screamer Single carb and oversize the exhaust to 1 1/4" People say don't do it because the bigger engines are common enough, but before they came out the 850 did have some speed tuning development (because it desperately needs it)

    Those are for easy forklift attachment for when you take it to scrap Probably for something like a rotodip to paint it originally
