Well, since my little brother bought a slightly Frankensteined little '74 standard a few weeks back, my dad and I have been working on getting it ready for life in Chicago as his only car, so we saw fit to do some junkyarding for the harder-to-find parts.

Here are four of the bugs we found, the fifth wasn't worth getting anything off of.


Once we'd gotten our little stash of parts together, we hid them and took a little walk around the yard to admire some of the scrap. This is one of the last really old-school junkyards around, and there are cars in here older than my grandparents. This Edsel, for instance, has been in here since both my parents were in diapers.



Eventually though, the heat got to us and we decided to get out of there, having some beer outside an abandoned house across the dirt road from the yard before finding a brewery with some food options.

So between the drive too and from the junkyard, the drive to Denver later that night, and the drive home yesterday, it ended up being a solid 200 mile weekend for my old warhorse. Hopefully y'all got out and did some fun stuff with your weekends!


Pretty cool Andrew.
WHere I live (London, UK) I dont think there are ANY old school scrap yards left... :-(

BTW I would definitely have grabbed that Edsel AND the Ford Fiesta MK1 in the row behind  Cheesy
I bought my last Fiesta for 50 running on 3 cylinders, a 15 rocker shaft from the scrappy and I had a daily for the next 2 years!!

Oh trust me, if I had any real money/space, that Edsel would be coming home with me ASAP. People over on FaceSuck keep saying I'd be better off finding one with a grille and a windshield, but as far as I'm concerned, any Edsel is a good enough Edsel to save.

With the header its right. Because og the shape of the inlet into the turbine i build the true header with a friend exactly how you told. 4-2 and 1-3 and put a plate into a pipe to get all matched.
My whater tank is unter the back seat, pump is close and outside and radiator in floored under the car. Its ok. But not best solution.

Nice!
Im intending to see if I can get 2x coolers up the front for water and oil but had been considering only a water circuit . Then using a water-oil oilcooler sandwich adaptor. The water circuit would then cover turbo air-water intercooler, turbo water cooling and oil. That sounds like it would help with rapid engine oil warm up however I have a feeling that the water in the cooling circuit would only go as low as 80-90C and mean that the turbo intercooler wont be able to get the 'cool' air any lower than that temperature?
Would anybody agree/disagree with that?

Cheers
