I still have the type 4 cooler in the DTM, I will do some running on that and see what the temp's look like. Right now all I can do is use a Wish Cooler (wish I had something to replace them with).

You would think that having it in and having one more night off that I would have been driving the hell out of it today. Well I must report that it is still over at Kevin's waiting to put the deck-lid back on and wire up the alternator. I spent all of today swapping the old engine and transaxle in Ryan's bug for the new engine and transaxle that I had waiting for him. It was his birthday and I needed to get the new drive-line in as his gift. I'm whipped after 2 engine swaps and a trans swap in one weekend. I will fire Ryan's up for break-in in the morning, then go get the black bug finished and drive it. Then take a nap and go to work. I will have to install the MSD rev-limiter and do some engine bay clean-up work next weekend to be ready for HoD.

My son's engine spund great, we did the break-in run on it this morning and then tuned the carbs. But the clutch will not disengage. I fought with it for hours. Looks like I will have to pull the engine back out and I haven't gone over to finish up my car. I'm not a happy camper right now. And I have to go back to work tonight.

We had to pull an engine out 2 times because of the clutch not disevgaging, and then another 2 times changing the transmission, all in the same car in the past 3 weeks, I feel your pain.

If I may give advice, from personal experiance, be sure to check everything when you get to pull the engine out. The first time we pulled it out, it looked like just the throwout bearing, then the second time we pulled the engine out and the clutch disk was bent. It seems when we put the engine in we pushed a little too hard and bent the disk, and it was a 4 puck disk so that didn't help any. I hope some of our mistakes will help you not make the same.

Well I pulled the engine back out and found that the spline shaft on the trans had some light rust on it and it didn't let the disc float so it was jamed against the flywheel. It dose fine now. I need to make one more adjustment to the clutch cable and tune the carbs again and my son will have his car on the road again. I did take it for a quick run and it will do a nice burn-out and has some good power. It's a 1641 with scat C-35 cam, 8.5 to 1, Weber 34 ICT's and a 4 into 1 with a quiet pack. Then it is back to my car.

Yep, I wish that was my shop. I did help him decorate it. I built the corner entertainment center for the big screen and audio system. You cant see much of that corner but it has a black leather sofa, black and white tile floor, ceiling fans, bar table and chairs and a keg cooler with 2 tap tower. Nice place to do an engine swap.
