Seems some of the bits turned up quicker than expected.


Bye bye wobbly 8 yeah old bearing

Refitted and adjusted to stop it tapping the heatshield in 3rd and 5th.

Also after seeing Tom fit some standard B Pillar vinyl's I decided to fit some non standard looking ones Shock the car is far from standard now to be fair





Hopefully the weather holds up or I can get hold of the easy up to tackle the clutch nextThumbs up

Looking good as always!

B pillar glue is a bit of a faff to get off and I struggled lining-up the new vinyl but they look great all fresh and new.

LOL So after taking the car to Corwall she seemed to acquire a few issues No Sad

1) Squeeking under revs not all the time but only in the lower gears.
2) Creaking from the front under load on on off power (engine cradle Thumbs down )
3) Juddering in low revs under 2700rpm and it would kangaroo like madeUnsure
4) Struggling up hill...….. these were Cornish roads
5 Bang/ knock from back end. Sometimes braking and sometimes pulling always.

So all in pretty much not a very happy girl, So in typical Hovis fashion I can carried away and attacked the car for the 3rd time this year LOL removing the Gearbox was on this occasion nice and easy and thankfully no gearbox issues.


Clutch removed the Flywheel seemed ok Even after the Inlaw tried to move it when I was away resulting in burnt clutch smell everywhere.

Thrust bearing on the other hand was shoot. (1) squeak noise found so replaced this along which the clutch.

Noted the Red spring was a completely different length on the new one but after checking several time I can confirm this is correct, I assume a newer one.

Next was a check of all the bolts around the engine area. Removal of the Lower mount point resulted in finding the BM Lower mount was sliding out of it metal sleeve Shock so replaced it for a Vibratechnics one instead (2) Juddering solved


Next was double checking the drive shafts...….and you guessed it shot Intermediate bearing so binned that and all (4)



I then found a genuine cat so got that Purchase asap. Found small hairline crack so double checked it all and got It welded up.


With that all done popped it all back together checked it and tad most noises gone. Still getting and knock from the back which I assume may be due to engine movement but I removed the rear passenger brake to double check put it back together and the noise has gone...…………………………...Dunno for now. In the process I did thread a wheel nut slightly Whistle so that need a replacement hub heilcoil or stud nut conversion.

withthat all done the next thing was a bit more tarting up LOL



Love

With that all done I finally wired the wife's heated seat in and now getting ready to finish off wiring the window in.

ThatsThumbs up all for now

Another small update.

After managing to strip a wheel nut I thought id take the plunge and buy a stud nut conversion, as the wheels are always being taken off I thought may as well.

I purchased 68mm length Satchell studs of which im very happy with the length fitment and quality.





and as you can see with the Trunnies fitted lenght is spot on,


I then got rather excited about an upcoming Trackday so I went on the hunt for "SOME" tyres and got a tad carried awayLOL LOL

The yokos where brand new so that purchase was for more of a summer driving tyre but, in the process I found a nicer set of wheels than my old 5 spoke LR-01R so I got another set of Speedlines Love

These came fitted with some Dunlops as an extra added bonus..........hope its not a wet trackdayWhistle

Apart from that I purchased a alloy thermosate housing from Blackmamba that I will fit shortly

nice bit of kit should stop the weeping from mine as is split towards the top.

Thats all for now.LOL

So finally managed to get some work done on the car,

First up was fitting the Thermostat housing as mine was worn and had been leaking for a while.

To my disappointment after purchasing a new thermostat and seals it still was weeping between the housing and body No
After further investigation I found the main body had a couple of grooves allowing fluid to bypass so a tiny bit of sealent resolved that.Thumbs up

Next thing on the agenda was to wire up the window and fit a new switch which I must say looks rather nice Love



Only thing is we did manged to switch the wire by mistake so that will be finished off tomorrow Thumbs up

Finally manged to hit the 190 thousand mile mark, so that's 80 thousand miles since the rebuild. Engine wise going on strong...………………………...everything else no so LOL LOL

As I finally have found someone close by to weld and finally have the car booked in I turned my attention to removing the interior.

Upon removal I decided to remove the front sound deadening Shock which was a good idea.


Luckily all it was is surface rust so I attacked it and the coated it in Hydrate80 then zinc primed and topped off with black hammerite.





With that complete for now I turned my attention to preparing all of the metal work for welding. The engine mount No pretty much gave in on the way for a quote which was great timing Thumbs down Thumbs down

Thumbs down
The front cage brace bar was also attacked as I noticed it had cracked when fitting the new window.

With that sorted I then decided to sort out all of the required plates I will need and drilled another 4 holes in the foot base as they were all only mounted with two boltsAngry




I also decided to nick an idea from Dennis (Russianguy) that I have been meaning to do now for a while


So for now finger crossed the welding will all go well on the 29th then its off to Brands on the 2nd Cool

So Managed to get the cage plates and engine mounts welded in.

not the greatest job as they are awkward spot and thin metal but all in feeling solid for now




Didn't manage to get any of the mount and also didn't end up doing the side plates in the end.

With that I popped the interior back in and purchased something for those early mornings LOL
.

All done and good for brands hatch Thumbs up

A very wet day to start with which then resulted in it being very dry and very fun with a load of us on the track Love This also ment the Semi slick came out and oooooooooo my what a difference they make once warm LOL I did only manage three slides which were all great fun and controlled rather when what can only be due to my set up and noting to do with my driving LOL LOL LOL LOL









Love Love Love

Over all a great day that has warranted so more upgradesLOL

To be fair I did it because "race car" LOL but it seem to work very well as I don't use a oil cooler and the temps always seem to do very well. I am running titan s 10 50 fully synthetic so that maybe whyLove

"Because race car" convinced me Wink I am also thinking of removing the lower part of the rear bumper to reduce drag. Have the damaged one from when the BMW hit me as spare.

So following the Brands trip I decided to do some upgradesLOL

First was a 28.5mm arb



Should make for epic turn in and twitchy bum moment on bumpy B roadsLOL LOL

I then managed to get hold of the last set of these bad boys Love




To help with this I purchased a new set of adjustable rose jointed Droplinks and new Arb bushes to fit well Roll eyes

So finally managed to get the new arb and wishbones on,

Also got some adjustable droplinks that I need to play with.


Had a bit of a mishap while fitted which resulted in a damaged set of bearing due to the shims not being located correctlyNo that was not fun at all. But after resolving this I can confirm the cars a different beast. The turn in and grip is ridiculous but...……… as my part worns are past it in the damp it is VERY twitchy so In typical hovis fashion


I got another set of PS3S Love
that's all for nowThumbs up
