Ssshhh...we need to lure the bucket man back and if he gets wind of my plans to modify my transmission arrangements resulting in massively* reduced lap times around the bins, he’ll never return...

Great marathon of work stripping down AVO. Areas of the underside on that thing do look somewhat decomposed, which is a bit frightening!

Today started badly as couldn't find the keys to BAL. Turned house upside down but can't find them anywhere.

Admitting defeat I trundled over to chez NJGleeds to finish off stripping AVO. A decision was made to take the engine out this morning.

Just took loads of photos as we went Along

State of play right now is that AVO is literally a shell of itself.

I think NJGleeds has finally forgiven me for making the garage stink of unleaded after draining the tank.

In a thoughtful piece of engineering Mazda have a little drain plug in the bottom of the tank but there was a fair amount in there.

Tonight Mr Leeds stuck the little ninja on the truck for the great scrapyard. 85a135bf0aa94c89c252f153fd8bb6bf.jpg

Fleet update time


Getz - missus Moog's motor. The rear arches are getting a bit scabby. I keep meaning to sort them but can't be bothered. It just goes. Put petrol in (quite a lot of it) and it doesn't need much else.

Lancer- I really like the car. It all works unlike my normal heaps. Being able to lock it helps. Rear tints means that I can drive around with a GSA gearbox in the back and no one knows. It needs a decent set of tyres and probably a couple of rear calipers.

Mx5 - BAL - managed to lose the keys to this. So will have to break in at some point. Apparently a 4 number code is on the locks so replacement set can be ordered. Disappointingly it has an imobiliser that I will attempt to remove ( that will be interesting) once I can get back it then it is MOT time and LSD fitting.

Rover 820si - as mentioned above a head has been procured for not massive money. That will be fitted with new timing belt and aux belt. The will MOT time.

Next step is to get another one cut and also to see if I can source a spare immobiliser fob

Is there an easy way to find out what imobiliser I have fitted?

The key looks like

The recepticle is
3e0e581d4cf7e06ac628109a21bc7e06.jpg

And has a magic reset button? f1001815f79d9efa2ef8a5b2fab5e6d0.jpg

There is a horn under the hood but no markings on it. The key fob has no markings on it.

Any ideas?

The car battery was totally flat. Something seems to be draining it pretty quickly.

So whipped it out to stick on charge.

Underneath the battery was quite rusty

Quick clean up and application of Krust

Then when dry a coat of primer then two top coats of the nearest paint on

Yesterday sitting in my warm office I decided that tomorrow would be a good day to book to get the little mx5 MOTd.

The dump of white stuff overnight has meant this afternoon sorting out the niggles was fun*

634aea115624663aabe9c60b1fe70b25.jpg

First up was to fix the HT leads. I intended to swap over the green mazdaspeed ones from AVO onto BAL. Only issue was two of the boots came off in the sparkplug well.

c839ca14d6d06a792af044615e04424b.jpg

Amazon yielded these bad boys
4fe0ef4bbcd9b3a553384355e740b72f.jpg

Which made the job simple
565754ae18da477c6351d7f480d9fff4.jpgce823f1a265bd18063c65eaf9bf65411.jpg


Then I needed to relocate the battery. The rear mounting bolts had rusted through. I got one out but the other is far too crispy to come out ec12a059f4d0297793a1c600291820f4.jpg3fc37e26893415af8fe30ef7860e5c14.jpg

It was then too cold to stop and take photos

Got the battery sort of mounted and with a bungee cord holding it in place.

Brakes were stuck on but some to and froing with emergency stops in the driveway seemed to unstick them.

A quick tootle on a private* road showed that all four discs were back to being shiny.

MOT is booked in for 9:30 tomorrow and fingers crossed it won't need much to get through.

Then we can sort out improving it.

Tester has put it up on the ramps because he wanted to see if it was worth testing after last time!

So far initial inspection has got thumbs up. Got a small hole on outer sill at rear drivers side but it is solid underneath.

So going to get a full test. Nice of them to check rather than just fail it.
