Thumbs up

I'm building a 1974 13B carb'd motor but adding a 2nd gen turbo set-up. I have a source to feed the turbo water but no where to dump it. I don't realy want to tap into the water pump so I was looking for another place. I'm sure someone has done this and was hoping that you could give me a good idea..



No, the 2nd Gen turbo II water pump will not work....... bolt pattern is different.



Thanks guys, Jeremy

You can feed and return through the heater core hoses.



Good luck with your project, please post any results and pics.

Thanks Ronin. Don't know why I didn't think of that but it is a damn good idea. I have just the piece to splice into the heater hose to.



Here is a pic of the motor mocked up and being fitted with the turbo. As it comes along I will post pics.

Pretty nice. Does that manifold and turbo clear the intake?

Unfortunatly it doesn't clear the intake man. I had to shave off the part where the ACV went and filled the hole with Devcon. I also had to remove and weld shut the bolts that run up in the exhaust ports on the rotor housings so the the exhaust won't blow through to the ACV. In the pic, you can see where I shaved the intake.



I have a piece of 3/4 thick steel that I am going to cut and use as a spacer. I do have two exhaust gaskets so I'm going to use them and the "spacer" and see how that works for now. With the ACV shaved and the spacer in place the turbo mounts fine. I just don't realy like the spacer having to be there. As soon as I get some more money I'm going to get some 321 SS and build a header. Fortunatly I do have my own shop and can build the things I need, just need to save up the money.



If you have any other ideas other than that spacer, I would like to hear them. Like I said, I don't realy like the spacer idea but it is all I have as of now.
