Mini Update

Been too busy recently to really make any progress with the car. Finally used the angle grinder tonight to cut a new alternator tensioner bracket out of a poverty spec mounting and tensioner setup. Once that’s prepped and painted it can go back on the car and it should be usable again. Need to order a few bits and pieces to go with it too. Biggest progress recently has been tidying up the garage which now has a 12ft long worksurface down the back wall and a generally much tidier appearance. All set and ready for the next phase of the project…

Balance bar arrived for the crane plus some 1 tonne dee shackles. Just need to organise a few more bits and pieces for taking the engine in and out. As well as the usual hub nuts, engine oil, filter, box oil, coolant and drain/level plug washers, I need to consider a pair of new driveshaft seals, clutch and bolts and nuts for the ball joint clamp, as they are nyloc nuts. I’ll check the bellhousing isn’t covered in oil. If it is, it might be a leaking at an input shaft seal, so I might as well replace that while I’m at it. The crankshaft seals and timing belt are all new following a recent bottom end rebuild.

Engine Crane

I’d been keeping an eye on eBay for a while looking for an engine crane and this came up local to me. It’s only had one previous owner who bought it years ago and then never used it. So pretty much brand new with just a few signs of aging. Just the ing for getting the engine out of the bay so that I can finish tidying it up.
