I ditched by bling CB pump cover for a couple of reasons. First, it's aluminum, and second it sticks out so far it requires use of a pulley that I believe is even smaller than a power pulley. Instead I followed FJ Camper in using a cheap Empi steel cover, which I sanded flat on the glass and countersunk the mounting holes so I can use countersunk bolts. The result should be low-profile enough that I can use a stock-sized pulley.

At this point I am just waiting for the flywheel that will allow me to mate this motor to the Subaru five-speed I have lying on the shop floor. I need the flywheel so I can have the whole rotating assembly balanced, before I assemble it. It's been about five months since I ordered everything from SubaruGears.

I just clocked a little over 7500 hard miles on my squishy build. I have set #1 of the pistons.

Good to hear from you, Steve. Team Squishy! And thanks for the kind word, Clatter. This build has gone dormant while I continue to wait for that flywheel from SubaruGears, or at least a response to my emails. I wonder if everything is OK down under? In the meantime I am doing body work, which comes after an eight-year saga of rust repair.
