Todays work done smile
Clutch bearing and outgoing axle ball bearing ( is it called that?) replaced.
"Maffe button" wiring replaced, the quick-fix I made 11 years ago on a parking lot in Poland with out any tools other then a scissors now nicly done.
New fuel lines ready to be put back in place.
Sparkplugs fitted and oil filter changed.

Lots of stuff not going to be ready in time, back screen will have to wait, Gaffa will save us from rain on the Eurotour... frown
Tomorrow the new clutch will be fitted and gearbox mounted back on engine.

TIme for a pint!

Changed thermostat, resulted in 1h extra work since the surface needed to be grinded/polish. Needle bearing changed and it was a well needed work!
After that it was dinner with my parents-in-law angel

Last day of work for this time.
The flinstone unit replaced with a mighty 2.9l v6, took a few tries and a pair of extra hands ( might have used some cursing also)driving
Rocker covers changed to "new" nice once. That created a new problem, they are a few mm higher then the old so noe the alternator bracket don't fit...

"New" rocker cover

Engine mount

Mans best friend?


Hope my father sort all the "small jobs" out until next time I go north to work on my S-fighter!
