Job done YaY :)

.... now when I power on/off I get the Noddy Dog effect >> before it was like a shunty thump/associated engine rattling.

I have only driven 2 miles but, at the lights, I felt the very slightest vibration through the wheel, on tickover.

This is a 'reinforced/modded' mount now but the one that came off was in two pieces so I reckon the engine has been 'not clamped down' for a while so no-vibes is not a valid comparison.

2hrs = £70... But I'm much happier, so an 'investment' really.

Over the last 10days I have been getting 'bacon slicer' noise on right turns, especially mini rbts...

Examining the f/n/s brake disc (slender spoke alloys=ftw) I can see a bright spot on the rust ring of the disc :(

.... further peering shows the pad to be as thick as a beermat, hence caliper/disc interface!!

My garage did the rear shoes/bled the WHOLE system for the last MOT >> must have thought the fronts were 'not life expired'.

They are now.... I will do it at the weekend/when I get pads + sunshine!

50% success...

The 12mm bolts, retaining the caliper sliders, 3 came out [with a fight!] but the last isn't having any :(

Used my 6 sider socket and inch equivalent.. Nope.

Heat... But didn't want to fry rubber boot = Nope.

I don't have a rattle gun so I have ordered a selection of Torx sockets (seen the price of Metrinch!!) and will give them a go - turning on the flanks rather than points.

I do, however, have an Impact Wrench....

Give it another two 'salt seasons' and we will see.....

I bought a full rocker gasket kit and this is because the head is *leaking [TADTS] down oil onto the block + gearbox casing.

Warmer weather [no garage] is bringing this plan closer but I'm considering degreasing the whole shebang afterwards..

Poonland does BBQ cleaner/degreaser - wear gloves/corrosive/nuns/kittens!! - but does anyone have past experience of BBQ cleaner on alloy/rubber/cabling ??

BBQ cleaner is probably a bit harsh to use in an engine bay. Most people use Gunk or equivalents, I'm a pikey so I just use a stiff brush and diesel.

 

For mating surfaces that need to be properly clean, I use a rag dipped in petrol/acetone/thinners.

I have been getting a distinct 'ptatta ptatta ptatta' chuff from the exhaust, exactly as it fires up  :-(  

 

My trusty ATS Wallsend, who fitted my new front section, were visited [they have a body lift!!] and opinions sought....  :?

 

I have a distinct hole, right on the sleeve where the under floor cross pipe kinks up and joins the back box/over axle.

 

43207912505_1fdbdf6eef_n.jpg

 

..... a finger of Exhaust Paste has been applied and we left it ticking over for 5mins to set.... OK 4 NOW  :-P

 

P1090808.JPG

*looks like this

 

..... expert opinion is that we have a couple of years left in the whole assembly but a 'wrap n bodge' is called for...

 

mv363.jpg

*should look a bit like this

 

I shall back up onto my ramps and do the tin can + wormclip + exhaust putty  8)

 

 

Good thing is that the Toyota pipe is well secured and is unlikely to snap... just rot through...

I have more closely examined the 'exhaust wrap' tape... The instructions clearly state 'remove BOTH strips and apply/wrap'... It seems the grey sticky wrap - sort of chicken wire mesh netting - will be manageable in shortish bits [unpeeling the plastic wrap as I go around] to eventually have it all peeled off/wrapped but wearing chuckaway gloves!!

I have studied some 'carb modding' Utoobs, on my 4A-F 16V engine.



One is called the 'vac spring reverse', disabling the lock out on the opening of the second barrel unless a vacuum diaphragm allows it..... :(

Old petrol sniffers, here, will recall 28/36 Webers as 'progressive' twin chokes... My AISAN is a twinchoke too ;)

Much dismantling is shown in the vids, to relocate the operating spring, to press the other way = unlock the second venturi opening across the throttle opening range.

I plan a 'mod' of my own, simply using a heavy wire to 'lock out' the op rod and free the secondary choke operation... No need to dismantle/disturb the carb in situ.

Will report [with piccies] soon.

These Klarius back boxes, for MG?

Presumably for UK Honda too??

I will need a box for ToMM and £36 is a lot less than a Carina II box....

Anyone clue me up on something like this and with a polished tip 'for cheepz' ;)
