Akyakapotter's Forged Glanza V 29/07/18 Gearbox out

Recommended Posts

Went down to the shit Box Wednesday and fitted new rad hoses and water pump elbow hose hopefully it's stopped the leak now.

Still have the rest of the hoses to fit but ran out of daylight will get round to it at some point.

Gave it a run up for half hour after getting it started stupid flat battery alarm drained it as was left for to long all seams well now wasn't leaking when i left. I will check when i start it up next week.

I'm toying with the idea of sending it up to TD to have a few issues sorted as don't have time or can be bothered to do it my self.

New oil pump after I had to helix coil it due to sump bolts stripping threads

Sort the ksports out something is up vague pedal feel

Sort rear brakes out hardly work 

Sort oil leak out gearbox side think Crank is possibly warn.

Haven't 100% decied yet but I'm 80% sure it's going up.

Any pics of the full hose kit fitted? :D

Haven't fitted all of them yet but only got round to these circled in red quality is spot on with them. I won't use all of them any way Ct9 water feed and oil return won't be used.

Popped up to hel this morning for them to measure up a line from master to slave cylinder on the clutch to help them out. So thought I may as well get one while I'm there. Will get it fitted up at some point.

Not much going on with the glanza these days think my current gearbox is dying a death. So picked up a spare box. Took it to Guernsey last week for trisks wedding quite a cool line up of wedding cars it was a blast and good to use it for 5 days.

Clutch and flywheel are still mint happy about that. Leaking oil from somewhere but not quite sure where. So going to clean it all up and run a bead of sealant between the sump and seal. Then put my spare box in to see off the problem goes away. 

Cheers nick.
