UPDATE:

Driveshaft oil seals have been changed, driveshafts back in, and gearbox oil re-filled.

Roller bearing wishbones are now fitted with new balljoints, and replaced a knackered track rod end.

Sump and gearbox all cleaned up with degreaser, a wire brush, and an old toothbrush.

The leak the car has had since I have owned it has been resolved now too it would appear in faffing about with everything Big grin

It was back on its wheels on Saturday afternoon, so I then set to sorting out hacking about the dash.
Cut my panel to sit in the centre console area, will get a pic up of this tomorrow.

Dash and wiring have been installed tonight and I have finished removing the tar crap from the scuttle area and re-painted it 1st coat.
Will get a 2nd coat in the morning before I go to work (if its not raining) and ill refit the wipers tomorrow evening, along with mounting the centre console panel, with switches and gauges (or the ones I have anyway).

Then that just leaves me to shape the roll cage mounting plates ready for the weekend when I am hoping they can be welded in and the cage bolted down.

Car will be insured again as of Saturday Hyper
Sooo looking forward to driving this; not been out in the 6 since the end of Jan!

So are you running your steering rack dry then or did you get a non-PAS rack? presumably if its a non-PAS rack then its not shortened on the right lock?

I weighed my P1 before I started and it came out at 1200Kgs bang on, but it wasn't full of fuel.
Fuel corrected, it came to 1230Kgs, but this was a sunroof model so would have weighed more to start.

i am running it dry at the moment, and removed everything completely, and made up some unions with sealed ends to keep shit out of the rack

dont forget my car is 5spd and xsi subframe/rack..

there really is nothing left atall, although it's painted inside so that's added a touch of weight. really gone to town removing brackets and namely wiring and stuff. the PAS and ABS was the heaviest bits i think, the PAS has all sorts of guards and pipework hidden, the pump and also fecked the idler off. quite a productive week actually, few bits on order so it should start looking like a car again soon! plenty to do though, suspension needs attention, opening an account with phillipm soon.. 90 days credit apparently..

makes me sad lookign @ pics of it a few years ago with the gti6 interior and black cyclones, i think "wow what have i done to it Sad" but nevermind!

Ahh yes, forgot about that little fact.

I did contemplate ditching the hydraulics when it was all drained down for the s/c fitment but I didnt know if the rack would be very happy running dry.

Would a dry PAS rack feel heavier then a non-PAS rack does anyone know? Contemplating putting a lower model's non-PAS rack on the car and using a friendly MOT tester...

is having no PAS on a PAS-born car even a failure?! (if that's what you mean?)

i'd have thought if it's there it's tested, if not then they can't test it! same with the ABS

or you mean if it catches on lock but so you can keep your box? (just weld a stopper on)

So long as the unions are properly sealed off so dirt can't get into the rack it should be fine.

Is it possible to cure the fuel starvation problems with ph2/3 parts? I remember driving a ph1 and getting fuel starvation on a gentle motorway bend! I thought I'd broken it! Laugh

Im sure someone around here had changed a ph1 tank / pump / level assembly for a ph2/3 but im not sure who tbh.

I did contemplate it, but after looking into it a bit, I think it will be less grief just to put a swirl pot in tbh.

Twas me Yes

Although i have ph2 wirring in the car now.

The ph1 tank has two seperate holes, one for the pump and the other thing i dont know what it is

Where as the ph2 tank just has the one hole with the pump, so the wirring is a little different.

I have a swirl pot ready to fit, but i got raped for a inline fuel pump from america a few months back and have yet to buy another Sad

I assume the second hole in the Ph1 will be for the level sender Dunno

That would make sense yea Thumbs up, obviously the ph2 pump has it built in with the teabag type device at the end of it.

I does on some of the very, very early cars with the little bosch pump (which sits right in the bottom of the tank with a teabag filter and doesn't suffer the fuel starvation issues)
