    And here we set, 14 out of 16 lifters don't hold oil anymore....

    Temp is better now. But now I have a clack that sounds like a rod bearing but all bearings look the the same and none loose. Only thing found so far is a 1/4" stack of fine metal on the drain bolt mag... FACK! Just had to get that out. I took it for 2 drives around the block... never past 4k. Valve train next...

    When I say restriction plug yes I mean the plug under the T-stat.

    I think I did.... I get it now. Not T-stat definitely cools better than the 180 with a small bleed hole. But at idle it creeps a bit till you rev it up. Basically it recirculates without cutting down the huge bypass hole under the T-stat. I think I'll try gutting the valve out of a stat without removing the restriction valve. Anybody ever thought about dumping the Tstat, restriction plug and then adding an inline t-stat on the hot side? That would be more like a traditional cooling system.

    That seems more realistic.

    I wouldn't say under-size, works good on the other car (same draw). I believe an oversize alternator leads to more electrolysis. Whether the field is demanding or not your still spinning that big alt... thats my theory. To be honest about a E.waterpump, I'm making excuses because my budgets blown, times up and that oregon summer is coming. That bolton one would be nice.

    Now comes the coolant issues... So far no luck idling below 211-215. 180 stat no change, heater hoses are looped. 120deg going in, 215 coming out. Trying a gutted housing tomorrow.

    Electric WP isn't a bad idea, I'm just running out of space with twin turbos, ATF coolers, V-drive, drive shaft, etc, etc. That poor toyota Alt is doing work with EPS, fans fans and more fans, dual fuel pumps (one sump feeder), etc.

    Till no battery. I buried the back bars on the little car above, lost my belt and saw sky FOREVER.

    Should it be GORANGE with frame color vents or the hood/roof/trunk lid black with Gorange vents? Leaning towards black with gorange vents....

    Drawing Reality Only a little tweaking in between. Started having visions of loosing another belt and remembered - not a bike motor , no belt - no water pump.....

    Brake line info

    Apparently I need patience, next morning we had it bled in a few pumps... I guess I worked it so hard it aerated the fluid. DOH, All good now.

    Half SXS, Half sandrail might be a good description...

    Brake line info

    Okay I took this advise today, couldn't get consistent cutting brakes, figured if I could roll the cutting (turning) brake around it would de-air easy...... now I have nothing on the turning brakes. SUPER clean fluid out of the calipers. Pedal instantly fills the turning brakes. I have the turning brake level on the frame and NOTHING. Use the pedal to pump up the turning brakes, release the bleed screw, close screw, use pedal to return turning brake - repeat -
