Wifey and I almost finished doing the clutch change today
...that bloody gearbox & Q2 diff is way too heavy for a one man one woman job so I had to split the g/box from the bellhousing and diff. Bell and diff went in first, then the box.
Everything's almost back in now, n/s d'shaft, cultch slave, gear cables, airbox, MAF, EGR, turbo hose, starter, g/box mountings, battery tray, fuse/relay box, exhaust.
Tomorrow I can finish up on the front suspension. I bent the tip of the ball-joint bolt on the lower wishbone
, so I'll have to chop it off with an angle grinder, and I stripped half of the threads on the upper wishbone ball-joint bolt
. I always eff something up, that's pretty much standard with me.
But...as soon as I connected up the negative terminal she hummed a little, and 3 seconds after I turned the key...VROOOOOM!!! Tested the clutch and it's smooth slick and oh sooooo soft.
Oh, by the way guys & girls beware...clutch change on a GT is biggie big job, I despaired for a while there. That gearbox comes out easy but doesn't go back in easy at all, that's why I had to split it. If it weren't for the extra expense of the xmas period Autolusso would have had my £500. I'm never ever doing that again!!
