Trying out the new image posting function...

This should be the Challenger engine showing the tape over the bores to keep things clean and dry while it was stored for over 3 years.

It was way too big. Trying again compressed...

If you can't work it out, try to "zip" it up and send to me.

Thanks Chuck. I'm just trying things out. I want to be able to post things that fit and trying to learn what works. The photos are on my phone, so I haven't figured out how to resize them yet...

You may have to get them over to a computer first.

Seeing if the old Image Shack Linky option works the same...

Image

Yep. It works.

This is the "new" Challenger engine that will be going back in once I fix a couple things with the oil pan.

This engine is the one that we fired up in the GodsRods Duster II at Clay City in 2012. I took it home and broke in the cam, then pulled it out of the Duster to put in the Challenger... Where it has been sitting ever since... :oops:

When I moved back to Germany in 2014 I put the tape over the bores and loosely bolted a head on it for storage. Now I'm getting things ready for the 2018 racing season and the return of the Challenger... Hmmm,... Challenger II...(?) Nah! Numbered Challengers make me nervous. :shock:

This is the oil pan. It has a large AN fitting holding the pickup in the pan that is then fed to the external oil pump. Back in 2010 the pick up must have vibrated loose (after over 4 years of racing) and starved the engine for oil. It boogered up the main bearings (I'll eventually do a complete teardown on that engine and get it back together to put in one of my other many projects).

Image

The pan used to have an aluminum expanded metal screen bolted in it that had come apart. I've posted pics of that before in this thread.

Image
Image
Image

I've made this new baffle/windage thingy to replace the wire mesh that fell apart. Not sure if I'll use it or not...

Image
Image
Image

I have one of the last Mike Jeffrey crank scrapers too. Maybe I should make a template of it before I button things up...

The pictorial evidence that the Challenger has finally seen the light of day (night) after 6 years, 19 days and 6 hours... I had posted this last month, but the post was lost with the board crash.

Rob it looks like the pickup is made up with flair fittings. It might be a good idea to weld in a bung and then weld the pickup to it and you would not have to worry about it coming loose again.
