Leaned against mine today and got dirt on my sleeve!

I am installing a new LP leak detector, refrigerator/freezer thermometer, a voltminder, and an automatic generator start system with the controls in the control panel above the stove. So today I am making a new panel for all those goodies. Film at eleven! Router saw dust....cough, cough, sneeze!

Busy day. Got the old engine out, now to change over the accessories and reverse the process. The parts are still available to mate a MD to a 3208, slick kit, bought all new parts for the fresh engine. Installed the 'old' engine dozen years back, got about 100k on it, interested in what I'll find when opened up.
Had time to fire up one more on the test stand, like I say busy day, went well.
I should interject the bus is real hard to push, 4 of us had a tussle getting it shoved back 8' to swing the engine cart out, no wonder they can be slow and hard on fuel.

Cut off copper lines in the curb side frame rail are supply and control for the air compressor. Relocating behind the engine mount, up and over the top. Will use plastic line from the frame to the compressor. Rerouting fuel lines same way, too much junk in the RF corner of the engine room, can't get to it, pain in the back side to service. Fork truck is important in my life, makes it possible to move things around in my limited space, wish the bay was 10' longer.
Initial start on test stand with out valve covers to verify the rocker arms are getting oil. This one fired right up, like it wanted to run. Sometimes they are onry on first light up.

I ran plastic straight to the compressor once,i'm not sure if it was just air brake plastic or even if theres a better one for that application.
But,the plastic i used melted after a few weeks.
I replaced with braided stainless hose,made for air compressors.

I do like the plans to move all lines and wires for easy access,i'm doing the same on my 71

Thanks for the pics!

Default House water pumps Quit

I have had to replace one water pump, but for the most part the pumps have just worked for the last 5 years, till yesterday. Pumps would not work, no light no nothing. But I took note when these pumps were discussed recently, and it paid off. Back to the rear closet, found the resettable fuse, power there, found the two relays #3 & 4, and found the bad relay quickly. It suddenly started working when I touched it, but I know it is bad and I have a replacement.

Been @ this kind of thing for 50+ years now, guess I'm addicted. First efforts were in gravel lot with chain fall hung from a water pipe triangle gantry. The saga has been all about progressively larger shop space since then. Honestly, never wanted to get into throwaways but that's all that works in a FC in my world. Same thing with the toter, came with a NA, too much effort to hang in a 6, so be @ it with the V-8 for 20 years now. The real performance increases come from transmission/rear gear selection.
In reality you can get excellent life out of a 3208 if it's built correctly. The heads on the example going into my 'bird are reman part number from the Cat house. I believe they getting to the bottom of the barrel on parts, as the castings appear to be new, the valves, springs and hardware are all new parts. It's set to make power between 1700 to 2200 due to turbo selection. The nozzles are 435 hp level marine, pump is 300 arrangement, was able to source the new, might be a bit big, EGTs will tell the tale.
