'Nother project got started yesterday


Since no one has started a thread on 'Floors' since 2010, I will

Minding my own business yesterday, putting the camshaft back and new bearings among other parts in my '31s engine, my wife decided that the first floor half bath project needed someone to start doing something. She stripped the wall paper then went out and bought tile for the floor. Thankfully it's a very small room, but now it's my turn and the toilet, baseboard and door trim need to come off and maybe the vanity pulled out, the old vinyl tile stripped and new underlayment fitted. When she bought the tile, she also bought paint for that bathroom along with two upstairs bedroomscensored.gif.

I hope I can get the engine together for this summerfrustrated.gif

 Oh yeah, I got my marching orders. It was bad enough that she wanted to strip the wallpaper and paint, but that grew to tile, a chair rail and whatever else gets dreamed up for that bathroom. As far as painting a couple bedrooms - not a problem as that's good for about 2-3 hours/day for a couple days and they need the freshening. Heck, if it wasn't for honey do's, I could work on my workshop projects all of the time. Of course, I haven't mentioned the counter tile and wood floor for the kitchen - I have my feet propped up on several boxes of the tile as we speakcrying.gifcrying.gifcrash.gif

I get the orders but somehow fail to remember them. Around here if it ain't one of the bare necessities or life threatening then I ain't getting involved. We have owned 3 homes since we got together in 2002 and we redid 2 of them with real cool and innovative things but those days are over for this O.F. I gotz a closet full of them teeshirts but they don't fit no more !nodisbelief

 That's pretty much it for me, too.  Got a mental list that is easily lost in the fog of dottage.  And I used up that bag of "round tuit"'s that I used to have.

It'll have to  wait till I can get "ROUND TO IT" or I jump right on that as soon as this movie is over,nonono

But I am gonna have to dusch it out soon if she don't quit bringing home every POS she finds at the dollar store,,,furiousfuriousfuriousfuriousfurious

Unfortunately, that floor tile project wont go away. Tomorrow the cement board goes down, then paint on the walls and last, the floor tile and I can put the bathroom back to use

Nope, not tired of it at all - - - - I'm gonna enjoy it more when the weather gets decent and I plan on driving it a bunch this year. Got some little things to do to it like get the speakers out of those boxes and mounted into the package tray, find a heater (no rush there) and figure out what I'm gonna do with those wheels and full moon discs. I may end up trying to put 15" all the way around but they may not fit in the front and still leave room for turning. She's a sweet little ride and I'm gaining more confidence in her every time I take her out.
Oops rambling again

And I'm having a hard time finding the space, money, and well, warmth, to wrap up a one lunger project. Thinking of rebuilding the 520 as a dedicated grader. Power every which way blade under it and maybe another in front. Cripes, that's one of the reasons I got the new tractor, TOO MANY PROJECTS I'll never have time to finish, and here I am coming up with new.......

Bill, it's the same one that's been in the roadster - just had a heluva lot of cleaning hours to peel off the old black paint and wash down with pressure washer detergent, Dawn, high pressure very hot water and lacquer thinner. I have a couple cans of black engine paint but am now leaning towards bright red to contrast (clash?) with the yellow/orange car. It has new bearings, timing set, fresh ARP rod and main bolts, cam has been degreed (it's 2* advanced) all clearances and reused parts checked, brass freeze plugs, metered oil supply to the distributor gear and screw in galley plugs instead of press in plugs and most important of all, a new Hughes torque converter replacing the rattling TCI 'verter.

Then there is the little bathroom project just to make sure I don't lay around watching daytime TV eyepopping.gifeyepopping.gifeyepopping.gif

 That was probably a great decision on you're part, to keep the 302,, plenty of power for that light weight roadster, better fuel mileage, and most of all fewer $$$s for a different motor,  Those 302's are kick ass dependable motors,,  looking good,, ya gonna have it in and running by spring when all that snow has turned to water?

 of course the tile work will be done RIGHT?????

 The engine project is moving along well - just waiting on a day when I can splatter on some paint then bolt the heads on. Then couple of short days later, back in the car. Now, that @#$%^^&%$ bathroom tile project - SWMBO came home with some different tiles on Saturday and is already out this morning looking at others. Dammit - it's a tiny ~phone booth* size half bath, less then 25 sq feet and I STILL have the kitchen to do - but we have that tile

 

* What is a Phone Booth to a younker - it's a 7' tall box with a folding door that public telephones used to be placed on many corners in most urban neighborhoods

 That too is an alternate use and is similar to filling a VW Beetle with as many warm bodies as possible. In both cases, it helps to be well fortified with a grain ethanol based liquid.

LOL I know that feeling well Dave,, I have probably 50 s/f of tile that she liked ( for at least 2-3 days) till she got back somewhere that sold tile, then drug more  home  and was added to the pile,  ( seems all women are created equal ,, at least with the same defects) it still sits on a shelf in the garage<< that I could be using for car related goodies,,confuseconfusebiggrinbiggrinbiggrin

Shew, at least I'm not a younker.

Bobbi likes tile, I hate the stuff. Vinyl went in to the bathroom when we redid it. She had put tile in her last place before we moved here, it was easy making the switch to vinyl after that.

This joint is s-l-o-w so I'll just update the engine and tiling projects.

Painted, heads, pan timing cover and water pump are on. The valves are adjusted the fuel pump in place and the brass freeze plugs installed as well. I did have one mega major F.U. - installed the crank gear 180* off so off came the timing cover and then put right. That's something I have never done in literally hundreds of timing gear installations or replacements. I ordered a new SFI flex plate - and it wont fit my converter and am waiting on the manufacturer to tell me which one I need. Then to top it all off decrepitude is setting in:

Oh yeah, the tiling project - the room is painted, trimmed, cement board down and waiting for my DW to pick up the tile - probably tomorrow so that will probably be worked over the weekend as it's still snowing a bit and to @#$% cold to work outside.

As far as extra tile around - yep!! I'm with you, Bill and probably have 30-50 sq ft stacked in the basement of overages, not gonna work or whatever along with a couple bags of $$$ thinset, grout, spacers and sealant.

Well, got my feet up on a couple boxes of tile that will get laid out in the bathroom today - finally

The engine project - it aint goin' so hot. I bought a fancy new ARP balancer bolt and put it in place and torqued it down. Something didn't look right so I took a look. Sure enough, that balancer needs to go on about another 1/4 inch. This means I needed to pull that new bolt and use one of the originals I have to draw it down. Except it wont move. Finally got the impact gun out - and even that had a struggle. That @#$%^&* ARP bolt - it's too long vs the original and galled. Of course most of the threads came out with the bolt. I'm going to try to chase the threads, but it will probably need a Helicoil - but in 5/8-18 not an easy tool to find locally but there is one I'm ordering from Ebay. Alternatively - pick up a remanufactured/reground crank for ~$150 bucks. Dam', and that engine job was going so wellfrustrated.giffrustrated.giffrustrated.gif

Never rains but what it pours, huh? If you can heli-coil it, it should do ok, but I understand finding one that big. Puts me in mind of an apprentice I had one time: she was a really smart and capable young thing, but as with all apprentices, there were gaps in her knowledge base. In some of our EHV circuit breakers, there was a four stage, eight cylinder air compressor, every bit as large, and quite similar to a V-8 engine; they were air cooled, and had individual heads on each cylinder, and pumped up to 4,000 psi through the stages. We had re-sealed one, and she was assigned the task of torquing the heads, and I thought she had a handle on the process, so I left her to it. The heads were bolted on, instead of using studs, and the bolts ran through the head, through grooves in the fins on the barrels, and into the crankcase, all aluminum pieces. I was keeping a distant eye on her, and after a while, I went to see if she was done, or nearly so, and she reported that she was having a hard time getting the bolts to tighten to spec. I checked, and found that she had set the torque wrench incorrectly - each head had different specs depending on the pressure of the stage - and she was not feeling the click when it released, and she had "pulled the threads" on all but one cylinder. Those were 9/16 and 5/8, and we heli-coiled all of them, and they held just fine. I was taught that a heli-coil, correctly installed, is stronger than the original thread.

 It's all part of the fun. This actually was part my screw up and part ARP. Their part - the bolt was too long. My part - I never measured it vs the snout thread length. I found a 5/8"-18 Helicoil kit with 6 inserts on Ebay as well as the 41/64" drill bit fairly reasonably. I'm first going to try to chase the threads, but in cast iron, not a lot left. This all will happen sometime this week .... tile work has to happen.

The screw up:

 Yep - a 304 stainless.

Helicoil claims something like 250,000 in a Boeing 747

That tile project - it's happening but slowly. Out of 24 tiles that have to be installed - 16 need some sort of cutting. Then there's the fact that they are supposed to be 12" square - HA!!!, They are 11-9/16" square which of course is a bastard dimension and not an even metric conversion (294mm??). I have 9 more to go - and every !@#$$%^ one needs some sort of cut. But it does look nicebiggrin

FWIW - laying tile IS easy. It's when you get to the odd shapes and cutting around them. Vinyl - I'll do the individual 12" squares and what I took out of that BR, but not the sheet stuff. If it's going to tear, and it will easily, then it's going to be someone elses dime. It's all in, I grout tomorrow, then install the tile base in a couple more days then finish up over the weekend. NBDno

 That 12x12 vinyl tile does come in handy sometimes,, to use for a pattern cut for the more expensive ceramic tile,,, instead of wasting the expensive tile with wrong cuts,confuse

especially if you have a different colored grout from the tile

Tile is anything but easy. It's a huge pain preparing a proper subfloor, cutting them, grouting them, everything.

We put in sheet, no problems of tearing, no problems of making joints fit. Easy peasy with standard tools. The exact opposite of tile.

Some people like challenges, for them, go for it, for me, tile will NEVER appear in any house of mine.

Between laying a few tiles or casing the door and window in the bathroom, I've about finished this little project. It needs to be installed, possibly over the weekend after I touch up a few spots, 'invent' a transmission dipstick, plumb the PCV oil-air separator then maybe rebuff the front fenders which for some reason have a little haze in a couple places in the clear coat.

It looks real sweet, Dave, almost too sweet. A show car, a show engine. My projects, well, they be smaller, I piddle around with garden tractors and attachments, and they're all workers. Even when I attempt making them look nice, they wind up looking like me rather than a runway model......

Amigo, speaking of Tillers, do you remember me fixing my oldest son's tiller Christmas before last?  I put flame decals, a rearview mirror and fuzzy dice on it along with chrome painting the wheels.  He got a real charge out of it and the best part is that it still runs and works it's tail off.  Here's the thread on it.
