Got more done once again over the weekend

First off i stated by cutting the bumper for the intercooler (which i am never going to be able to hide)



cut under the number plate to get more air to the cooler



Fitted the boost pipes to intercooler





Fitted the bumper, arches and arch liners





making sure half the cooler isn't wasted



One for Rick cooler and rad clearance roughly 40mm



Fitted Cambelt cover with stainless cap head bolts



Then fitted TX auto Single V pulley



Number plate on, Made me feel a little closer to finishing




On the fuel pump and fuel filter



Then this is mainly for Rick as he asked in previous post (fitting walbro 255 fuel pump)

How it starts



First take off the "top" and disconnect the electric plugs (x2) and both fuel pipes, this is what your left with..



Then press the 3 clips in to remove the inner unit and use long nose pilers to remove the locking top of the fuel pump, it will then look like this....



Whats left in the tank



Remove the filter at the bottom of the fuel pump (just pulls off) and then the pump just pulls out, you will be left with this




Then take the Walbro 255 kit



Fitt the rubber and the bottom of the fuel pump and the foam sleeve around the pump



Then put into housing and fit locking top



Then I Found if you flip it to the underneath you will see this...

As you can see in the picture below that the pump pick up in now in the centre unlike the 16v pump which is offset to the top. The problem with this is that when you try and fit the filter it doesn't fit flat, which you could leave but personally it seem abit of a bodge!



I then filled the edges out so I could fit the filter centrally and straight




Then i Soldiered the wires and heat shrinked,

Red to Red
Blue to black



Then fit the unit back into the holder in the tank, I used the original fuel pipes not the hose supplied in the kit



Then just refit pipes to lid and fit lid!

Hope thats helps and makes sense

Dale

only missing the space should be DAL 33S

Got more done on monty tonight

First off i started by sorting out my vectra Gsi seats as the subframes were shite tbh, so i used ones i had laying around and made brackets etc to make them fit and work correctly inc drivers height adjustment

this is all that was on the passenger side



Half way through passenger side subframe



Drivers side



All bolted in



Next i cracked on with building the boot up, refitted the loom and washer jet and pipe



Next I cracked on with the top mounts i got from Rally Design as mine were fucked (Highly advise using Rally Design)

Old top mounts



New ones fitted



New rear vibera-technics gearbox mount



New Baileys DV26



More tomorrow hopefully as I'm meant to be picking my arms up

Also entered park and pose at PV this year just have to wait if i'm accepted now!

Thanks

As for the seats, yes and no.... i'm sure you could bodge them in there quickly but whats the point! You just need the use larger bolts and shims until the running sit at 15inch apart, so they sit in the correct mounting points takes awhile to get it sorted!

Well I have been/will be flat out as my first show is next weekend and i still got fair bit to do, so heres what i got done

First off i fitted my carbon "plate" just need to make the sticker for it now




Painted my ATE calipers and Tarox G88 discs to give them a fresh look!



Picked my bits up from the powder coaters



Fitted my powerflex rear beam bushes and got that fitted and started on the rear brakes



Fitted vibera-technics rear mount and new rear gearbox mount



Started to refit turbo to intercooler pipes



Fitted top intercooler pipe + intake side




Next was the M-Tec F28 short shift kit. Here a few details on how I done it

Linkage Set up



Shortened section



Then I fitted the linkage and found that it rubs on the top bolt of the rear gearbox mount which Nic had warned me about! The only reason I can think is that I'm using a 3 plate spacer kit and the M-tec kit is a single plate kit only on the inside. This means mine sticks out alot closer to the linkage hence the rubbing issue. Here is a picture which it un-modified

See how close the top bolt is....



So i simply trimmed the linkage to give me clearance, Modified picture



Then using the holes inside the car and on the gearbox to put the linkage into the plane where 1st and 2nd are, I did the pinch bolt up and all seems to be fine got all 6 and reverse! alothough I haven't driven it to check......

Next was onto sorting my front wheel bearings, I have always used the front carrier setup I bought done! Never thought nothing of it and bought some new bearings for it from vaux (66mm standard corsa) and found they just fall through.... After a bit of searching it turns out the person I bought them off did them proberly and use non machined hub flanges and machined the carrier instead enabling me to use larger bearings(68mm and less chance of cracking the hubs)

Heres conversion hubs or machine down big block hubs



And non machined down, you can see why people snap/crack these! I know what I would rather use...



Next was finding bearings, the bearings I used are rear 1988 mk2 golf synchro which are OD 68mm, ID 39mm and W 37mm, they cost me a whole 14 each iirc

So i took them to work and pressed them in




Went to get a drink, only to find the cats have found new beds..... I wonder which one is driving?



Couldn't help but take a nice reflection picture



And how the engine bay currently looks



Finished the rear brakes



I couldn't wait to see the new wheels on so i fitted a rear (still no shocks)




Fitted my tie bar lowering brackets and ball joint spacers (although my new ball joints are the wrong ones.... )




Fitted my new rear mudflaps




By this point the cats had left but a gain another friend.....



Thats all for now, Hopefully more tomorrow!

Dale
