We'll be having a go at templating the supercharger bracket, as a friend of mine has C'n'C machines, and has access to a lazer cutting C'n'C machinr too.

Small update.
Picked this up yesterday.

Thanks :D

Well, time I suppose to pics of what was underneath the carpet. :eek:

Passenger sideImage

Driver side

Glove box firewall

and finally driver side firewall

Most of the worst rust is on the firewall where water is coming through, one of the threadsbolts for the glovebox is completely gone, and on the driverside, ther's a hole which will need cutting out and welding in a new piece.
The rest you can see isn't bad, but surface rust, so a lot better than I though, happy days.

IT's getting there slowly!! :laugh:

Today, I ripped out the front panel, wings and inspected for rust around the chassis rails, and inner wings.
I found a few more holes, typical places, so not really that shocked.
WIll order a new front panel for it, and need another goo NSF wing, as it's too far done down by the sill area.

Image
Image
Image

Front panel all off.
I thonk it'll stay of until I get the M30 into the bay, easier than having to lower it from the top.

Image

And M10 ready to come out tomorrow.

Today's been productive and alot of wasted time.

Cleaned up the head, put all the valves and springs back in, fooking collets were a bastard and didn't want to know on a few of them, but perseverance prevailled.

Ordered NEW Febi Rockers from GSF :alright: , as they were able to deliver to me.

Then, problems started, LOL, putting the shafts in, and trying to get the first rocker in place, "Rocker says No", :argue:

COOONT, looked at it, scratched my head, phoned Zaust (Thanks Marc) :D
and after looking at the other 11 of them, GSF had put in an M20 one!!! :up:

On the phone again, and an hour later all sorted..................so I thought, looked at the rocker and realised it wasn't FEBI , :roll: but a cheap chinese piece of shit :evil:

Again, onto the phone, and another hour late, and checked it before the driver drove off, It was aFEBI M30 Rocker.. :banana:

Then it was onwards.
Result....all I have to do now is change a few gaskets for new ones, and it'll be ready to bolt onto the bottom end tomorrow.... :clap:

Clean rocker shafts.

Image

The New FEBI Rockers

Image

And all installed..

Usually just means the topic is interesting and he's subscribed for updates. (I am as well, but chose not to advertise the fact. :D :popcorn: )

In this case it's safe to assume it's a complementary addition to a thread. That's not always the case though, as some will subscribe to a thread that's spiraling rapidly, heading for a crash. I love what you're doing and look forward to seeing more. The cleaned & painted heat shield... :up: :bow:

Standard fit as far as I know.
Has a cooling duct from the rear of the main beam to the alternator.

Yeah, just looks like there's a chip out of the alternator housing where the duct goes. Not a big deal, great progress Ray! keep it up
