Where do i start?
Been unhappy with my engine for a while...started a lil smokey on over run.. then when booting it..and its been clattering and knocking..
So when i was told about a calibra getting broken...and then asked did i want the engine... it just needs a clutch.
Would have been rude to say no....
So with the SC boys we ripped mr cally apart..big thanks to,
Astra Dan,Pitstoppete,DTM Dave,and a big big thanks to mig old school legend Sean Mcmanus.
With the engine home i set about taking it apart to do as much as i can...with the cash i have..
One dirty late xe,
One dirty f20,
Once i had the box off,i could see what was up with the clutch...
The release bearing was funked,wouldnt turn...bearings hanging out...
and it had done this to the clutch fingers,
With the box off it was time to set about cleaning it up...(yes thats me)
Scrubs up well dont you think...
Not sure about what colour to paint it yet...
With the engine on the stand i could start ripping the old bits off it...
Cambelt cover off,
cambelt wouldnt have lasted long me thinks...
Alt off,which was only held on but the top bracket,that sean had to have welded when it snaped...cause someone hadnt put in the bottom bolt...anyone want a 100amp weapon?
With the thermostat off, i gave it a quick buff up..will do more later..
thats all for now...
but here are my other plans...on a budget...
cam belt and rollers,
fly wheel bolts*Got*
oil and filter,
sump gasket 16v,
oil breather pipe( sump2cam cover)
sort out lighten flywheel...
chrome cam cover and belt cover...with pully holes,(swap cam pullys)
chrome heat sheald,
black cover bolts,
paint gear box bits,
polish and chrome dispack mount.
cts and temp sensor,
dispack thingie bit,
More comming soon kids....Might be a boring read..hope it isnt,if it is..dont read it...
