Sheepers other MS75 crown coupe

Recommended Posts

did a bit more on this.

its pretty much ready to go and i was taking the radiator hoses off to replace them and the sludge that came out of the bottom hose didnt fill me with joy so i decided to pull the radiator out and get it reconditioned.

while the radiator is out ill replace the oil cooler hoses and the trans cooler hoses as well. its a million times easier to get to all that shit with the radiator out of the way..



im still after a fan that fits the hub i have for the water pump if anyone has one.

like this but with a 136PCD for the 4 bolt holes

got all the hoses done and the new radiator installed.

also got the oil cooler flushed while i had it apart.

thanks to @Carsnz123 for sorting me out a fan that fits.

Richie came over and gave me a hand and i got it running. its got a better carb on it now and its running WAY better that it was. bit hard to tell how it sounds because the exhaust is ripped in half so its pretty loud.

anywho it goes well so next week ill give it a few heat cycles and then re-torque the head.

finally i got that sedan shitbox sorted out so i can leave it outside and work on this awesome thing.

started making new exhaust. i used the factory drop pipes from the manifold and merged them just under the drivers feet, then flex joint and a hotdog resonator. im going under the diff because why the fuck not. so far the bit ive done is fully welded and its loud as fuck. WAY louder that the MS51 and its all the same kit. i dunno, might have to put a muffler at the end which would be a bit gay but needs must. 

ill make the rest of the pipe tomorrow and see how it sounds. 

can the manifold i made for the 51 really dampen the sound that much? fucked if i know.

some of the things are now attached.

Mk2 supra brake booster and new master cylinder. had to make a new front brake line. i pulled the guts out of the old proportioning valve (because it was fucked) but left it there to look like its factory for compliance. the mitsi chariot proportioning valve is in the rear brake line under the floor. that allowed me to use all the factory brake lines for the back.
