Well I picked up 740 about two months ago and have been stocking up parts for it left and right. The car has been sitting for over ten years and all it needed was an engine. This really disgusts me but I am thankful that I ended up with it. The po had the belt replaced by some backwoods idiot that did not do something right with the install and it threw the timing belt. Everyone here knows what this can lead to and it was the worst case scenario for 740 and it took out the #1 piston on its way. The car was taken back to the mechanic who kept putting it off and had it in his possession for ten years! The po finally reacquired the car and posted it on Tuners in the mid atlantic region for sale for 500 dollars. Needless to say it didn't last long and I went to look/purchase it in two hours.

Enough with the background and onto the pictures!

How I found it,


Washed a bit,






Credentials,


90k,


Thankfully the leather is still soft,


It's home for next few months,


Parts!


Trying to keep the older lady 91k drivetrain (previous 1 owner) crisp,


Wiseco/Eagle combo, ff ofh, etc...




Low mileage virgin crank,


Rebuilt head, crower springs and retainers, 1mm os stainless valves, egr plugged off, oil port mod, still need cams but stockers will do for now,








Mint tank I got off Rexwagon,


Blasted oil pan ready for a new coat,


Minty ecu's,


I don't think I have enough 255's


Really don't know if I can trust this guy,


Option b?


Wish I could use this,


New clutch line,


ABS delete,


14b for now,


Needs a re-coat but will replace the severely cracked stocker,


Only 15's


Block is at the machine shop, I go and pick that up tomorrow and start putting it together. Also I have a ton of stuff getting powder coated at the moment also.

more to come...

Thanks for the nice comments. Not sure what turbo, probably the 14b for a little while. Yeah I have had real good luck with the Gates pumps in the past. I got some of the engine assembled today and had left out a few details on the engine build.

Engine as follows,
Low mileage 6 bolt 4g63 block deck and bored .020 over
virgin crank out of block cleaned and polished
Eagle rods
Wiseco 8.3:1 pistons
balance shafts eliminated
standard ARP head studs
Cometic 1.3mm MLS head gasket
6 bolt head
1mm os stainless valves
bronze valve guides
viton valve seals
Crower springs and retainers

and pictures!
nice and shiny!


pistons installed


underside


ARP's


Cometic hg (yes I put the dowels in)


Head resting


Where I left off with the head torqued down.


Old engine carnage pic, number one cylinder.


GTFO!



more to come....

Got the old engine and trans out of the car today. Also pulled the oil pump and found that my 90 pump with the straight gears seems to be in better condition than the helical gears in the gvr4 pump. I can see a lot more wear on the pump housing on the gvr4 unit and some but not as bad on the 90 housing. Decisions, decisions. The car has doubled as a parts bin also , and we had to push it out to clean a massive spill that spewed out the turbo drain hole when pulling the engine with the lean it had.

Got a few things done the past two days. Went ahead and put the non abs lines and proportioning valve in, along with a full stainless steel clutch line. Also got the pan, oil pump, balance shaft delete and rear seal in place. Then I put my act 2600 pp and South Bend feramic/ceramic clutch disk on and got the transmission bolted up to the motor.

This is where I left off, still have to put on the intake manifold, exhaust manifold, turbo, cam gears, timing belt and get the new tank up in the car (still haven't got a bunch of stuff back from the powder coaters). Disregard the haggard installation vc.

the 90 straight oil pump gears are supposed to be a bit stronger then the helical 91+ ones. another lil trick people do is polish those gears.

Thanks guys, anyone have a ac tensioner and the bracket it is bolted to laying around? I don't recall the car having one when I got it and I am keeping ac! Also I am under the assumption that 1g turbo dsm's use the same unit?

I'm sure you'll find it, between all the guys that part out these poor cars and crazies like me that purposely remove the a/c from them, your bound to find one if you look.

Got a ton of work done the past few days, ran into my first real problem though. I ran the pump through ecmlink to set my base fuel pressure and notice that I had not one but two fuel leaks! First leak was a drip where the rubber fill hose connects to the tank has dry rotted and cracked and the other is a pin hole right where the fuel line connects at the sending unit.I think I am just gonna drill it out and run a bulk head fitting in its place? Other than that the car is pretty much done now with the exception of bleeding the brakes, clutch and putting the hood back on.

I got the fuel leaks sorted out and set the base fuel pressure then went to start it up (previously primed obviously) and some thing wasn't right immediately. The car was missing and backfiring, uh oh I instantly thought the timing was off! This in fact is impossible since I have long forgotten how many 4g's I have timed up in the past due to the amount of times I did it and correctly every time. So I checked and confirmed that it was right. So I at least let the car come to temps with the miss and drained the start up oil and replaced with Mobil Delvac oil and a new wix filter for the next 500 miles. So after that I couldn't for the life of me get the car restarted!

At this point I was losing patience really quickly when I glanced over and seen the OEM plug wires that came off the car in a neat pile of stuff that came off of it originally. So I pulled the ebay wires off and noticed that the contacts were not going into the coils all the way! So I installed the old wires and voila it purred like a kitten! Went through ecmlink and triple checked all my settings and changed the timing and fuel maps over to evo 8 maps, took it down the road for a proper ring seating session and she drove amazing.

Drove her to and from work also and she rode amazing like it was never down for any amount of time. Other than the abs light being on (the abs ecu is still plugged up) everything still worked fine. Hopefully I will get a video of it running in the next week or so.

Nope, my buddy does them on the side here locally. I got a ton of stuff done stupid cheap, most of which can hardly be seen though.

I have neglected to keep this updated!, switching over to a billet hx40 turbo and bep t3 with OBX ramhorn as we speak. Swapped in the afco radiator, changing/rewelding my charge pipes up a bit and making a o2 housing within the next week or two. Updates to come in the next week!

A little background on some of my previous cars and such.
89 Colt GT, loved this car so much.






Got rid of the Colt and regretted it... so next came my 90 Colt that was supposed to be a daily and ended up like this. Been like this for almost three years now I think it may be time to part with it and let someone finish it...









While I had the 90 Colt down I found a another "DD" four door Automatic Eagle Summit that was in dire need of some assistance (hit three deer). Lasted two weeks then diagnosed a cracked head great... And so it began.















I took it up to the 20th Annual Shootout and three exploded fwd trannys and a skipped timing belt later, Winter rolled around. I then found 740 and decided to get rid of the Summit.





Oh I had this in there somewhere, just to say I am not much of a fan of DSM's but picked this up dirt cheap then unloaded it for a good profit months later. lol



phew...

Present day - 740 has seen a bunch of road trips on her short resurrection so far, been up to the shootout this year then down to Charlotte NC, then down to Williamsburg VA for Busch Gardens then to Richmond VA three or four times for Kings Dominion and shopping and once over to D.C. for some sight seeing. She shares DD duties with my 90 Mighty Max and has been so rock solid.

Here is what the engine bay looked like right before I started on the turbo swap. Went ahead and threw on my 1g ets street fmic, Magnus smic, afco radiator and switched over to speed density



Some of the goodies to be installed







and after all this I have a line on another 89 Colt that needs an engine and happen to have all the 4g swap parts sans engine and trans left over from the Summit.

I have been torn in the past few days of the direction of the car,... no I have not lost interest I just think the car deserves someone that will put more effort into it's appearance. I have always been quite satisfied driving a shit box (CSM) that was'nt gonna be pristine or in showroom condition. Besides I have really neglected my awd colt project for far too long and this build moved toward substantial power goals and a lighter chassis is just a win win for me.

I have no clue what 740 will bring as a roller with no engine and transmission and transfer case?
