New guy checking in from CT!

Post by Streettoyz » Fri Oct 03, 2014 2:09 pm

Hello HRCS! My name is Mike I'm from CT. I have a 1989 Mighty Max Macro cab that I am swapping in a 1990 4g63 turbo engine. I have been a lurker on here for about a year. Found this forum after doing some searches for Mighty Max engine swaps. I have read all about Jeremy's truck and his build thread and thought that would be a good way to go since my original engine began to foul spark plugs once a week. Thanks for the inspiration Jeremy! Your truck is very cool don't sell it! I saw it on CL if I wasn't neck deep in my project allready I would buy it!! I figured I better join HRCS because this seems like the place for Mighty Max 4g63 swaps. It's nice to know you guys are into these trucks all my mechanic friends think I'm crazy for doing this swap but I think it would be great for hauling my bikes because it is low enough to load easily. My other truck is a 1986 Chevy K20 that uses a insane amount of fuel because it is carbureted and has no overdrive so I can't afford to use it daily. So here I am I will start a build thread soon and hopefully you guys can give me some advice during my swap. I allready have a lot done. I decided not to move the engine forward or cut the firewall. I fabbed a low profile water neck to clear the firewall and I'm planning on mounting the CAS on the front of the engine and flipping the CAS wheel over because it's gonna be spinning the opposite direction not sure if it's gonna work yet. What do you guys think? I guess I'm doing it the hard way but the engine sits so nice on the stock mount location. When I get the time I will get the thread going and get some pics up. I really like what I have seen on HRCS so far you guys seem helpful and easy going. Some other forums I have seen too many guys that are rude and just like to talk sh! T. So this seems like the place for me. Thanks guys! Hope to talk again soon.

Mike

I'm going to try and get some pics up asap. My only internet access is my phone because my home computer is down and I can't seem to get the pics uploaded to here from the phone. It just keep saying it's loading but never actually finishes loading. If I get somr time I'll go to my friends house and use his computer.

Welcome!

I'm doing my best to read through your posts, so give me a little bit.
Seems all your line feeds (return key) got swapped with regular spaces. (sometimes caused by phone apps)

Welome mike.
Looking forward to your build thread.
Im still rebuilding my engine, also not moving the motor mounts. Thought about jays racing front water outlet, but it also needs modified.... interested to see how you made it clear the firewall!
Agian, welcome

Welcome Mike! I'm also interested to see how the engine fits in there. I'd also really like to see your CAS setup when you get it built. The tricky thing will be getting it timing right I'd think, but your idea sounds plausible!

Hi Guys! Thanks for the warm welcome! I have my computer working again but I still can't seem to get the pictures from my phone to my computer. I am not very good with computers. I will keep trying to get some pics up for you guys.
