Hmmmmmmm....a year on and still nothing. Thats not at all depressing.

 

Discussions to have it lifted have progressed and an actual date agreed. Parts are assembled. Maybe an actual thing will happen.

MOT tomorrow.

I shit you not.

8 years after coming off the road due to an oil leak, two/three oil leaks have FINALLY been diagnosed. These shouldnt pose a problem for MOT and will be fixed probably next year.

Current work being carried out by the mechanic is as follows:

·         Oil and oil filter change

·         Fit lower arms with new bushes, ball joints and track rod ends (new drop links I bought were the wrong ones so they wont go on)

·         Fit anti-lift kit whilst fitting new lower arms

·         Fix CV boot weep on divers side (new boots purchased but not needed)

·         Fit new rear discs and pads and wheel bearings

·         Fit new water temp sensors

·         Weld in the spare wheel mount

·         Weld repair on bumper support bar

·         Headlight alignment

·         Straighten steering wheel

·         Assess front brakes (discs, pads, calipers) – are they ok? Answer: Discs have some life left but probably need replaced next year

·         Assess rear calipers – are they ok or seized? - GOOD NEWS! They are NOT seized!

·         Find the source of the oil leak and repair? Answer: crank shaft oil seal and driveshaft oil seal both leaking.

·         Change crank pulley back from blue one to OEM

·         Fuel tank need a coating of waxoil or similar and surface rust scraped off?

·         General MOT preparation (handbrake, etc) and check over (anything sinister lurking that I haven’t spotted?)  Rear hard pipes need cleaned up.

·         Fab and fit brackets to support FMIC better

 

Well - that only took 8 years. Will she pass MOT? We'll find out tomorrow!

Phil.

Update

Most significant update since 2011:

Mot - passed.

She'll be delivered home in the coming week(s), and will go back into hibernation to await the spring and end of the salt on the roads.

There are a few jobs still needing done, but none that stop her from being tax'd and insured after winter.

Finally she will see the road again!

Phil.
