Few things left to do to complete the mechanical work. the revometer is connected to the ecu signal but isn’t right, oil pressure gauge now has the correct TIM sender but is reading in reverse, rear diff is as noisy as buggery so that’s a winter job. Efi system is not completed. All components there...

Shes up and running sweet as a nut. The clutch feels firmer, clearly the red top pressure plate wasnt up to it as that felt very light. I've come in for a bath and beer, test drive tomorrow.

Yesterday, (thursday morning) at 6.30am went for a 2 hr drive. Clutch much better but I'm not convinced so I've bitten the bullet and ordered yet another new clutch and slave. So i will fit the original dual mass flywheel and new oem clutch and concentric slave before curbs next week. The challenge ...

So she’s driving well but..... the clutch slips under load. I’m not sure if it’s because the flywheel has been turned in the lathe and given a fresh face that now needs bedding in, or this red top flywheel is simply a bag of shite that needs scrapping. When the new face was lathed, the same depth wa...

Lovely work Mike , such potential! I suspect the grass at Curbs is already withering at the sight of this :lol:
Brilliant, :lol: :lol:
