well tomorrow will be the 6th day working on this job and hopefuly the last (although I said that about today). What a nightmare, do you ever get the feeling you bought a bit of a lemon? all the bits not covered in oil were covered in rust. Still gearbox is now back in with the new clutch in situ. Didnt realise these cars had a pull clutch. Has anyone else made the mistake of trying the release bearing on the pressure plate before putting it in the car? If notand you are thinking about it DONT! the release bearing has a sleeve over a clip which will expand once only!
I have cleaned and painted the subframe and started putting the suspension back together. New Anti-Roll bar bushes, New upper & Lower wishbones and now realised I need new anti roll bar drop links as I stripped the thread on the old ones (Grrr).
Other things I have done are drive shaft oil seals (easy to do unbolt flange knock out seal with big socket and knock new ones in)
I have also done the gearbox input shaft seal and the engine rear crannk seal. The rear crank seal is cause for great concern for me. Anyone else done one? I liberally coated it in silicone sealant as the mating edges look a bit dodgy. Hope it doesnt leak!!
