Oil Pump and Sensors

Oil Pump and Sensors

Here's the oil pump and various sensors that came off the lower end of the engine.

Timing Chain

Timing Chain

Here's the timing chain; it has a little play, but I guess that's to be expected after 175,000 miles.

The Bottom End

The Bottom End

Here's the bottom end of the engine, it's in great shape considering what it's been through.

Carputer Ideas

Here are a few of my scribblings on what could go into a carputer that I'll be building. Don't expect it to be coherent or make much sense.

Cruise Control

Cruise Control

This is a shot of it while it was still in the junkyard car, but that's it against the firewall, with 10 wires coming out of it.

Emergency Brake Handle

Emergency Brake Handle

Since the Emergency Brake handle in the car had fallen apart (the screw came out, and the button came off the plastic stalk, which fits inside the metal stalk), it was fixed, to my surprise, with just the parts shown.

Power Trunk Lock

Power Trunk Lock

A power trunk lock solenoid installed where there was none before. It slipped right on, and bolted right down. All I need to do is run a wire to a switch inside the car.

Rebuilt 3100 Engine

Rebuilt 3100 Engine

A freshly rebuilt engine, since rebuilding the existing one would have cost about $900, and this rebuilt engine ran about $1200.
