Title: I Want Your Junk!!
Post by: Clowny on 04:09:59 PM / 17-Nov-09
Thats correct, you read it right.  I want your junk.  Old parts that you are replacing, engines that you are swapping out, etc.  I LOVE to tinker with things and I am always in need of more things to tinker with.  So if you have any parts laying around that you dont want and are just going to throw away, PLEASE let me know first to see if I might be able to get some use of it.  It pains me to see perfectly good parts go to waste just cause someone has no use for them anymore and doesn't want them around.  To give you some examples of the kind of tinkering I've done with spare parts, I have built a working jet engine out of spare car parts:

Turbo from a Volvo 740
Fuel injector from a Saab 900t
fuel pump from a 240sx
oil cooler from a dodge pickup
ignition coil form same pickup
oil pump from small block chevy
12cm cooling fans from a computer case
electric motor to drive the oil pump from an industrial printer
all wiring from leftover wiring harness from 240sx
lots of tubing from various exhaust systems
spark plug from rx7

All the parts were either given to me or sourced at a local salvage yard.  and yes, it worked.

Nother project:
Made a workshop stool out of a bent up  nsx rim donated to me, a ka crankshaft, z32 brake rotor, and some ka connecting rods.  the casters I had to buy and the cushion a friend made for me.

The downside:  I dont really have a lot of money right now so I would probably only be able to pay for shipping on whatever you might have so please dont contact me with stuff you want to sell.  Even if I want it, I probably dont have the money to buy it.

Anything you guys might want to get rid of please let me know.

you know since your kinda close. it might be eaiser to save up some gas and throw everything into the shell(its a rolling shell) and tow it back, that way youll basically have a full car minus engine, tranny, tails and interior. i think you are just a few hrs away.

I would love to take you up on the offer, but I have nowhere to put an extra car.

Dude, I just read this thread, and your awesome meter just went up a few points.

If I can think of something interesting that I don't need, I'll let you know. Once I move into the new place, I'll probably want to ditch some things.

For anyone who wants to see the jet engine, click here (http://s33.photobucket.com/albums/d80/ClownyMelonBalls/jet%20engine/).

I took these pictures awhile back of me and my buddy Adam workin on it.  The album shows our turbo-jet engine and our pulse jet engine.  The pulse jet we made in less than 8 hours from Adam saying "Hey, let make a pulse jet" to us outside filming the videos.  Enjoy.
