Update time

So a few things have happened to the cossie over the last few weeks :D :D

first off, i stripped some bits out of my bay to have them powder coated

ImageIMG_20150207_143713 by onslack, on Flickr

while the bay was clear of stuff Tom kindly jet washed it for me

ImageIMG_20150207_121808 by onslack, on Flickr

i gave the bulk head divider a lick of paint, it'll do until i can find a replacement that's in better condition

ImageIMG_20150307_133555 by onslack, on Flickr

onto my next task, while the bay was getting jet washed i noticed how bad my steering bush was....it was hanging!!

ImageIMG_20150207_122521 by onslack, on Flickr

so i bought a landrover replacement to butcher so i could use the rubber from it

ImageIMG_20150305_173152 by onslack, on Flickr

took the linkage off the car to remove the old rubber

ImageIMG_20150307_124339 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150307_124357 by onslack, on Flickr

i then stripped the new one

ImageIMG_20150306_172620 by onslack, on Flickr

rebuilt the old one and no i didnt paint it :lol:

ImageIMG_20150309_180712 by onslack, on Flickr

refitted it

ImageIMG_20150312_192515 by onslack, on Flickr

while my old engine was apart i had a boss welded into my sump for my oil temp sensor, i didnt want to remove my magnetic sump plug

ImageIMG_20150301_114305 by onslack, on Flickr

while all that was happening i went and collected a few bits

ImageIMG_20150201_112408 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150201_112344 by onslack, on Flickr

a few weeks later, my powder coated bits arrived back with me, as did my billet cam pulley bolts to go with my cam pulleys and a massive order from matt lewis ( no pics)

ImageIMG_20150303_133644 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150312_141708 by onslack, on Flickr

i didnt get many pic's of the engine going back together, only pic i got was this of the pulleys etc about to be fitted

ImageIMG_20150308_120359 by onslack, on Flickr

the beginning of march my bottom end went in with the help of baz and a few mates

ImageIMG_20150308_140319 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150308_155652 by onslack, on Flickr

i was then away in cardiff over the middle of march, but when i got back it was game on....i'll let the pics do the talking for a bit

ImageIMG_20150322_101017 by onslack, on Flickr

tanks, alt and piping started going on

ImageIMG_20150322_165215 by onslack, on Flickr

mounted my new coil pack bracket

ImageIMG_20150323_173200 by onslack, on Flickr

i then had this pile of bits to fit

ImageIMG_20150323_174443 by onslack, on Flickr

after some jigging and poking the head went on

ImageIMG_20150323_192540 by onslack, on Flickr

cam's and cambelt were next

ImageIMG_20150323_211249 by onslack, on Flickr

look so much better than my old standard rusty ones

ImageIMG_20150323_211303 by onslack, on Flickr

i had dropped my rocker cover off with baz to have it skimmed, few pic's before it was fitted

ImageIMG-20150320-WA0004 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG-20150320-WA0003 by onslack, on Flickr

rocker cover, inlet , few hoses and swirl pot were then fitted

i had to drop my secondary manifold off with baz as a stud had snapped inside it ,az helped me remove it and then heli coil the manifold for me ( no pics of this)

ImageIMG_20150324_145122 by onslack, on Flickr

engine bay pretty much complete

ImageIMG_20150325_125021 by onslack, on Flickr

i started working on the saph on sunday and i was at this stage by tuesday eve, which is where some issues came about!

i had a horrific noise when i started it up! i thought it was a bottom end knock baz and another mate of mine popped over to have a listen with me, it wasnt a 100% given if it was a bottom end knock or not but i needed to remove the sump anyways to find out what was what as i could of also been the cramk hitting the pick up pipe

so thursday i spent all day on my back with the sub frame on my chest, crawling in and out of engine crane legs and generally being tight on space, stressed and frsustrated, i did find this though

ImageIMG_20150326_153502 by onslack, on Flickr

ImageIMG_20150326_153509 by onslack, on Flickr

the rod bolt on no.2 was hitting the pick up pipe, so that was sorted checked and triple checked!! after dicking about and nearly giving up the sump went on!

baz helped me get the sub frame, tcas and the starter on so we could turn it over and listen for the noise, which had luckily gone :D :D

on friday afternoon i ran her up to temp and made sure the fans cut in

had my first test drive on sat to make sure everything was ok :mrgreen:

booked back in for mapping with nms on the 15th of april

:D
