I really like the chunky 'turbo' mufflers and pipe work that stick out the back so kind of copying that......



Then realised it might be an idea to get a back box before i went any further Laughing

cut the tow bar out and tidied up some bits and bobs under the bus....

Phill, just buy a welder dude, that's all i did and just gave it a go..

Mike, there's a wiring loom with your name on it:lol:

nice work dude Smile

and i will give anything a go Smile

I just bought a cheap(100) sip 90amp mig welder off ebay to test the water and then the most important thing an auto darkening helmet. Wink ...

Want to upgrade the welder at some point later in the year, but has been a good starting base..

looking good now mate. Like the idea of the turbo style exhaust i love those style exhausts, are you going to have a large muffler on the end or just running open pipe?

Looking very nice indeed. Just a quick question. I understand how the rad will work while the bus is moving, airflow etc, but what about when stationary? Are you fitting fans on the reverse side?

Hi, yes ive got a nice big 3l carlton fan that's got to be mounted yet..it's a 'pusher' rather than a 'puller' so i can mount it on top of the rad for more ground clearance..


Been backwards and forwards on this for a while.....

"Bag 'o' loom"....... this is what ive already discarded



Saturday night at the table......



And how it looks so far



Whether or not it's right is a different matter Laughing ..................... Cry Cry

Was hoping the ebay win workshop manual cd would turn up so i could verify where certain pipes and hoses go.....but nothing.....

This week i realised i'd done a major boo boo where ive mounted the turbo the oil return off it sits lower than the original return on the block, so i had two options....
1/ raise the turbo, which would mean cutting and adding bits to the manifold and the exhaust ( which i really couldn't be bothered to do)
or
2/ add a return straight into the sump.....
so turned my attention to the sump, got to thinking if sump sits three inches off the ground when the van is empty then what's it going to be like when its loaded..........

So today's effort........

standard



After surgery





Still got some work to do ( like add the return which i forgot about Laughing ) cut down the oil catch, then line it with the same stuff i did the fuel tank with...
Im going to do away with the water cooler for the oil filter and run a sandwich plate and 72 row oil cooler which should then add back some of the oil that im going to have lost by cutting the sump down ....

Oh also accepted the fact that it's not going to be ready for the holiday Cry ...and if it was, a 3000 mile round trip with three babies and a highly strung misses isnt the best idea for the initial test Laughing ......

Havn't done much over the last two weekends..

Added return and used the petrol tank liner stuff to seal up ..



The cd turned up and wasn't much help Cry , so spent the last two weeks trawling the net and joining up on subaru forums.......

Finally got the info i needed cheers Very Happy and mounted the solinoids and valves up....... oh and the pump for the chargecooler



Need to order up new vacuum hoses ,oil feed , intake and chagecooler pipework

.....So it was back to the wiring

Oh, it's great Laughing .... the way it will go into a connector as say a blue wire then on the other side will change to a green and white and then to a red is quite something... and thats an unmolested straight from the factory loom....

glad to see your going the rjes way, mate of ours got mixed up with a tsr conversion, not good Suspect least your can run the subaru starter now and from what we have seen from rjes its all good quality gear. get your rad well sorted as our mate had a lot of trouble with colling his Cry

hope your mate weren't roger from Buckingham? as i have just picked up an engine off him today!

mk1rolf when you done the brackets for the engine support bar did you have to cut them off to move them back or did they unbolt? only ask as mine have been welded on when it had a type 4 engine put in. will prob start a post up with a few pic's over the next couple off days
