Thread: Hi all

    And she's back on the ground

    Moved back and forwards

    Got a gearbox leak from the drive shaft so ordered a new seal and got the brakes to sort, handbrake to adjust etc

    Just an exhaust to go and get but will take her for a drive on Thursday and see what happens

    Spiffing. Just in time to catch a few summer events.

    Here's wishing you many smiles per miles!

    Cheers mate

    Hopefully the summer isn't over yet!

    Got the air con to do as well but no rush to sort that, let's get a downpipe made up first

    Looks like you did that all by yourself with no help?

    If so that is really impressive!! Well done!!

    God knows how i would have got my engine in and out by myself with the constant tilting and little adjustments made on the fly needed to get an engine in and out

    Yeah most of it, it did end up in the machine shop to rebore and new crank etc

    But everything else I've done

    So had quite a big oil leak from the oil filter housing managed to get the o ring replaced so hopefully no more oil leaks!

    Cut the old and new exhaust downpipes and bodged them together and got them in

    Just need to get another bolt in the join to the backbox and she should be drivable

    Yeah I'm hoping to get the backbox on Friday morning and bolted up and then she's drivable, only other thing to do now is the air con pipework

    So the plan is to drive her to work Monday morning

    Yep going to forge, only up the road from me so should be good

    All is good, been driving her for a week or so now, taking it slow and letting everything bed in

    Got a slight leak from my bodged up exhaust and still do get the air con pipes on and that all regassed- also need to wire it up too

    But all in all happy days and eventually! A successful swap

    See you all at forge
