Been Busy.

I have been very busy re-fitting the engine and carrying out a few changes to the suspension.


I had run the car to a few meets over winter and the salt on the roads have caused rusting on the front springs & a few other places.
A big thanks to Steve Thompson (other half of team shorts) who helped with some spannering!!
Due to another few days being more than under the weather and currently being off work sick I will not be doing any more work on the car untill I am 100%. Although all that is required to finish is to bolt the bonnet on and wire up the headlights.

Engine out and new seal fitted

Well after a bad leak on the Type 9 gearobx, I have pulled the engine out again and this time I know where the leak is coming from!!

The seal from the front cover was knackered! and the bottom boltholes go right through to the gearbox and the fluid was coming out of these threads

I sealed up with a new gearbox cover seal from Ford and PTFE liquid on all the bolts and fingers crossed this should do the trick!!

not long now and the engine will be back in and I should have the car sorted for the La Carrera & 10CR.
