Re: Building the supercharger to the engine (75 3.0V6)

Great going ! I always shudder at electric water pumps due to electrical faults I have come across (so old school). I wouldn't rather have strong fans and a warning light if they cut out. At least I can keep going to my next point. Maybe you could argue the waterpump belt can snap .... But that is s...

Re: New GTV6 project, 1981 Rosso

Hi Michael, looking very good. I see you have also the 3.0 front spoiler as well. On my fiber glass bumpers I made I painted the original insert black ie the black trim area and the bumper appears to be original looking :) also in the black area I could hide my fixing points.

Re: 24v cam timing adjustment

Z, the dealership in SA always quoted for new pulleys in service on the FWD cars as a lot did break on removal with pullers. Also an infinite more amount did not break so the client was then refunded the amount if all went smoothly. Follow Alan’s advice on tool !! Hey a Alan post update of your proj...

Re: 24v cam timing adjustment

You can but it all depends on how easy the cam pulley releases .. otherwise it goes a bit pear shape from there . I have done it a few times.

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Md, unfortunately my cars are in my storage place which 70 miles from here and I can’t exactly go there as it’s not an essential journey even thought I totally think it is. However one of my work projects happens to be in the area this week so will pop in and air out the cars. My mate who shares ...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Md, geez that's massive effort. Thanks for reply on specs. I have seen guys recently give up on separating a head from a nord engine and binning it. Definitely no task or problem to big for you ! Is there any concern on the studs ? I guess they survived this !
Cheers

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hi Md , good to see you making progress . Work is always exceptional as usual despite having to fight off the lovely Gold Coast weather ! A few questions if you don’t mind . Are you leaving the camber on rear as standard ?, have you ever had the stud bolts ripping out the spacer ? Reason asking abou...

Re: "Patches" MD's Final Racing Project

Hilarious!! Jk, that should fire up Geppetto to get this 75 to standard acceptable by most carpenters ! Maybe he could even call his project “big woodie”

Re: Our 1600 Junior restoration

This little car has turned out really well and drives beautifully. Unfortunately I can’t keep it in SA as I have no storage facilities and my Mom finds it little to heavy to steer but then again she’s nearly 80 and used to power steering of the Spider, so it has been sold to a really good collection...
