A little progress.
The Subaru Limited Slip Differential is now fitted and the car is back on all four wheels now. the front brakes are now four pot running vented discs. The rear brakes are now converted from drum brakes to disc brakes and almost finished.
Ok ready for some info? The Subaru differential has been fully fitted and linked up to the Rover 100 shafts, inner Subaru CVs and outer Rover CVs which are fitted to the Gt6 rear vertical links which have been machined out to take the rover 100 outer CV with the larger MGF TF bearings fitted to the vertical link. Outside the VC is a MGF TF disc and calliper, I made the calliper mount myself to allow the MGF rear calliper to fit the GT6 vertical link. Got that???
The radius arm for the Spitfire are mounted to the outer location points on the body (at the rear of the seats in the cab) where as the GT6 utilise the longer radius arms and mount to the inner mount to the inside of the cab. As such the Radius arm locating bracket on the inside of the cab have been cut out and moved to the inner mount location (These parts are no longer available hence I did not buy new)
My seats were eat by mice a couple of winters ago whilst at a friends barn as I did not have a garage at the time and the carpets are shot due to the same fury friends. My plan is to replace the leather parts that were eaten and buy a new carpet set.
The Zetec engine is supplied fuel by a very successful system consisting of a low pressure fuel pump providing fuel to a swirl pot that then feeds a high pressure fuel pump via a high flow fuel filter the fuel passes along braded high pressure rubber fuel pipes to the fuel rail and any excess fuel is passed back to the swirl pot and an overflow back to the main tank from the swirl. The combination of the swirl pot/low pressure fuel pump/high pressure fuel pump and fuel filter in the boot took up some needed space and decided a few years ago now to replace with a fuel pump swirl pot and sender unit (for the fuel gauge) to be in tank and save space in the boot so for this blog entry I hope to cover this.
I have extended my tank range by 100% by adding steel and providing a great location for the fuel pump.
Bye for now.
