Sweet... so EF/EL gear is the go.. might grab the whole lot and use it.. I already have the EL compressor, might as well use EL stuff for the rest (but gonna have to figure out what to do about the in dash stuff cos I'm not pulling my dash out.. not as keen as BenJ and co to do that.. loath pulling dashes out. :-)

I'll work something out..

where does the EF/EL have its drier ?


The drier in the EF/EL sits accross to the left near the left headlight. I actually am doubtful you will be able to use the EF/EL factory setup though as where they pass through the radiator support panel under the headlight could be different. I am happy to be proved wrong though.

Also if you do change the front end parts, there is no need IMO to change the interior parts.

Thi so for looks very promising and I am following with interest.

Cheers
BenJ

I might be able to help with the belt issue, what length have you got now 6PK****?

Once I know the current length I can check on what I have in stock

Hi Raptorsc...

The belt I need is a 6pk2565... Its the standard belt of a 6.5 litre Holden Surburban...

I'm gonna order a gatorback from the US because I can't find anyone in AU that stocks them... but in the meantime I have a new Dayco belt for a surburban that fits.

What belts do you stock sir?

Its raining and miserable here today..

hoping to get out abit later and finish modifying the EA air con tansioner to fit.. right now it's slightly out of line with the belt.

After that I've got a list of things to do.

1. Remote mount the coil.
2. Install rising rate fuel reg.
3. Mount TFI module somewhere and wire it up.
4. Install Intercooler and work out what piping will be needed.

I'll get as much done this weekend as I can but I have to replace the pump in the wasing machine as well.

yeah, I agree, however we have a 10 month old baby and things get smelly without the machine.. and I'm still trying to convince myself that my daughter is made of sugar and spice and stuff...

turns out the "stuff" isn't everything nice...

Hi all,

Got a bit done today.... first up is the TFI module.. mounted to a heat sink with thermal grease.

Image
Should keep it nice and cool.. will be mounting it only inchs from it's original location to keep the wiring standard.
Image

Now the fun stuff.... I made this bracket from the EA air con belt tensioner and some 3mm ribbon steel.. there are 3 bolt locations that I have added. one goes to the front mount bolt of the supercharger, one goes under the factory EL tensioner top bolt. (ground off the 3mm spacer that was there and used this instead) and last one goes down on the bottom timing cover bolt on that side.

Image
Image

Doesn't look all that impressive off the engine, so here is one I prepared earlier.. :-) I should add that this could probably have been done a few different ways.. I choose this method for 2 reasons.. 1 is that it helps hide the charger, and two (the most important) is that it significantly increases belt contact on the charger pulley.

You can see the top and bottom bolts here, but not really the one to the immediate left of the top of the bracket where it goes under the closest bolt.
Image

Here is a closeup of the bottom mount point.
Image

The mounting is rock solid as it's anchord in just about every direction.

Here is the new plate in place with the Suburban belt on and tensioned by the factory tensioner. (this new addition gives me a manual tensioner to use as well as the spring loaded factory one... might be handy as it gives me a range of belts that will fit now.)
Image

Below is a side view of the install showing my remarkable guestimate as to the belt alignment.. I did not measure it, and yet it the belt groves line up with the exact middle of the chargers pulley (the charger has an 8pk pulley so there is one grove left on either side, so it lined up spot on.)
Image

Lastly a front view with the cover back on.. the charger is pretty well hidden, once you put a radiator in front of it, a radiator hose over it and a flat black pulley cover over the nose, it will be nearly impossible to tell it is there.

Thoughts? Have I missed anything folks?
