Well I just found this site, got my baja last week, and am in the process of stipping/painting it. don't have the money for all the parts now, so I'll do the stupid labor to get it out of the way.

65 baja, with a full tube frame, ford 2.3 motor, +8 wider on the front, fox shocks for the rear on stock arms, 3 rib tranny, suspension seats, fuel cell ect.

here are some pics






.

have most of the interior stripped, gonna pull the engine/tranny and finish stipping the interior sunday/monday probably.

I traded one ofmy dirtbikes for this, due to the loss of the cartilage in my knee Evil or Very Mad wasn't ready to give up racing dirtbikes, but still want to walk when I'm 50.

so anyone in the east mesa area bored on sunday, drop by. give me a hand, or just share a drink.

other projects to get this thing going
cage modified for 5 point harness's
relocate seat back a bit
setup mounts for fuel cell
figure out why starter won't turn motor over. (regular duty starter, but brand new, good battery, engine not siezed and no plugs in it right now.)

Cool, were did you get the Baja from? I think I have seen it before. As for starters. you need a self suporting starter from a VW Bus or Porsche 914. Same starter in both. will bolt up no problem. but you will need to ground of the bolt lock on one of th the starter ears.

Also the trick is to use a 30/40amp black relay and have your key flip the relay and the relay will jump the hot 8gauge wire to the solinoid on the starter.

from what I can see from the photo it looks like you might have the wrong starter.

starter in the photo is an SR15N. regular 3 rib starter from what I can tell.

also I got it from Jim Riley, has a ranger he does some races with whiplash. lives on the border of AJ like me.
