my aim for this year is to start the engine, mounted in the car, with the standard ECU.
So my coolant system is ready to cool.
I build all parts of aluminum, a Flange for In- and Outlet, an Overflow tank, 90° tube with third connection to Overflow tank.
I elimated the mechanical waterpump to get space for the Turbo.
So I used a Davies Craig EWP115 electrical Waterpump for the waterflow.
When I will change the ECU from original to Megasquirt I wanna use a Map with PWM-Out for regulate the pump speed.
To regulate the warm up without little or no speed of the waterpump I installed a Thermostat, which is normally used in the Lada Niva.
If this system wouldn´t cool the rotary down on traffic or under hard track conditions I bought a SPAL Fan
Only thing which is missed is a fan shroud which will come sometimes
The Turbo needs Oil Feed, Water Feed, Oil return and water return.
So I ordered some special made stainless steel lines with teflon inlay at a industry hydraulic firm.
Water feed comes from Inlet flange
Oil Feed comes from front plate
Water return goes to upper side of the radiator
Oil return goes to front plate/oil pan
I installed the alternator 180° turned in the front of the engine so it runs left instead of right originally.
Put it produces AC-Current which will transformed in DC so there shouldn´t be a problem.
I used a 460x10 belt to connect it to the crankshaft. very small
Also I build some parts for tensioning the belt of the alternator.
Another thing I changed is the oilcooler connection.
Originally its at the top and on the side.
Caused by the place I want to install the oilcooler there is a problem between the top connection and the frame.
So I cut the connection at the top and welded also on the side.
Now there is no problem between the oillines and the Frame.
At the moment I have to plane some weldet flanges and to hard solder my Oil return Flange which is made from copper and steel.
Pics will follow this week!
