Meh
I just pulled one of my sheds down. now I can see the sky in my backyard.
My darling Corinne reckons (Aussie slang for "says") i have a mess, and the shed she let me have isn't big enough
When was a shed ever big enough, and it's not mess, it's just stuff I haven't used yet.
As for dust and metal filings.....
there's more of that in my house than in the new shed

                When will you release the new engine?   Doc says you have it.
                There is an engine bay that needs to be filled.

I get an email from our man in Preston...

So , rough dimensions

from the back face of the block to the front of the block, 440 mm
front face of the block to the end of the water pump pulley, 180mm ( the
water pump has a 30 mm spacer on it that we might be able to lose)
the other thing about the water pump on a chev is that it is almost an
after thought bolted on the front of the block. we could run an electric
pump
front face of the block to the front of the bottom pulley, 210mm
total length   650mm

the center line of the crank shaft is level with the bottom face of the
block unlike the commodore motor

bottom face of the block to the bottom of the sump 180mm
bottom face of the block the the top of the injectors  590mm ( this
doesn't allow for an air gap above the injector hats)
Total height 770mm


rocker cover to rocker cover is 670mm
should've measured rocker crank center line to rocker cover. tomorrow if
i get a chance

engine mounts
they are a plate on the front face of the block
the mounting holes are about 265mm each side of the center line of the
crank and about 130 mm above the center line of the crank

We may still have to make the car longer

Wish I had mates to have "canapes' around my liner even though I don't have a clue what they are.
You choose, mates or canapes?. grin grin

Mike, in Australia when they say "canapes" they mean any food item served in bits too small to mean much of anything so the ingestors (like that new word?) can keep talking while simultaneously eating.

Like whiskey-flavored lozenges, for instance. grin

I'm confused.  Nothing new there, but it seems like they dubbed the Parliament House audio archive feed over a football game.

I was wondering why Slim's language filter didn't work on the vid
but moving on, as with most things in Australia, our language has been out sourced
pay careful attention to the made in China, Aussie barbecue tools

Canapes might have come from California.  My mother served them to us hungry kids as a snack about 50 or more years ago.  Crackers with a little piece of cheese and sausage on top or mayo with capers, pickle, and sardines or tuna.  A lot of the time there were toothpicks in the canapés.  Proper etiquette was to lift the canapé off of the plate and eat the morsel but not the toothpick.

And we're a tolerant lot, till someone bigger tries to knock us over. Here's an episode of Gary The Goat, an Outback wanderer. Jimbo & Gary's Youtube channel was banned for not following guidelines. The uproar was loud enough that Youtube backed down, now we can spread the culture...



Might be relevant to the thread, Jimbo & Gary zigzag across the Outback, they're bound to show up at Speedweek one year.
