Utterly failed to do any of the above. May get a little done tonight, but not likely. Tomorrow perhaps? Or Friday?

Things got busy. Saturday is R33 time. Sunday is Carib pick up time (scoring a 7AFE to build a KP60 engine from).

Posting here today instead to note that I stole the battery out of it for the Lantis! Lantis is now very usable. This is not at all, anyway, with the super nasty knock coming out of it.

I think pulling the old B230K out of it ASAP and working on the DOHC swap as a stealth power-up and fix-up is the winner. That engine just requires one custom mount made cleanly/stealthily to look stock. It also requires an EFI fuel system setup, and an ECU, but that's easy enough.

Chopped the catalytic converters off the exhaust yesterday evening: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 7212972032

So they're ready to cash in and now from the far end of the driveway you can't see any mess, just the Suzuki. So less likely to get in trouble because of stray BMW parts.

So now it's about as compact as it can be, I need to figure out what to do with the diff and suspension side of things and then ship the scrap off to the scrap yard and be rid of it before it causes me landlord drama. Hmmmmmm, what to do.

WAY behind on updates... BMW is gone except front cut with windscreen, pedals, trans tunnel. Subframe, diff, hubs, arms, etc dumped on our land.

Tonight:

retrieved it from the street
5 hours work and the carby and manifolds and pipes and wires and so forth are all off, head is off, and block surface cleaned up ready for test fit of 16v head.

tomorrow:

test fit head
remove sohc bottom end
test fit bare DOHC block
make engine mount for bare DOHC block
remove bare DOHC block
extract B234F from garage
fit B234F into 240 sedan

Next weekend, wiring, fuel system.

At least, that's the plan.

Progress on Saturday/Sunday with some help from a mate:

Pretty close! :-D

Looking forward to later this week when we're clear of possible
landlord visits and I can push toward having it swapped in by end
of Sunday and awaiting fuel system/wiring, or not waiting for it!
