Trying to get my pole barn finished before 2021 :angel: I haven't been able to work on it steadily and has taken forever. Almost done. Have a few more panels of OSB to put up then prime and paint. The barn is 30x56 with a 30x24 woodshop on one end. The garage end is 30x32 and has a 6x8 bathroom.

Pulled the engine out of the Beta as I had a trans side crank seal leaking. I saw a pic from the last race I did on it and there was a massive cloud out of the exhaust. Hopefully this is also the source of the intermittent 'running way at full throttle and scaring the shit out of me' headache I've been having with this bike.

The Husky I can get the side cover off in the frame but I wasn't sure if the Beta can. Plus I'll check/grease all the linkage/swingarm bearings while it is apart.

Made these to fit in the intake/exhaust of the Beta so I could put a couple psi to it and see if the crank seal was in fact leaking. Which it was as all the air pressure was coming out the oil fill.

The engine for the International came from a junkyard and did not include any accessories. The oem Toyota power steering pump and a/c compressor are kind of bulky so I went with a GM p/s pump and a compact Sanden compressor. Also received the new upper intake plenum and the bits to weld up a new exhaust manifold for the turbo.

I choose the DIY route on the exhaust manifold as I just wanted a simple log type and not too many companies make them for this engine. Plus now I can clock the turbo up or down as needed vs buying a manifold meant for whatever car it was made for. While obviously not equal length, it will still be good for 500+ hp.

Accessories mocked up. I used cardboard to get the same I wanted then transferred it to a piece of 3/8 plastic I had leftover from some other project.

Image


Intake plenum. The stock non-turbo manifold wraps over the top of the engine which is fine for that application, but I don't want it crossing over the turbo so I went with this aftermarket piece. I knocked off the polish with some scotchbrite after this pic.
