  1. Exceptionally handsome old bus. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F184137226536
  2. A bit of sick came up https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F303452776539
  3. A straight 8 on ITB’s would be rather wonderful...
  4. Clocking the turbo... Aka making it fit with the nozzles pointing the right way. Well, it fits, but oil feed and drain, and snail are all wrong and the waste gate actuator doesn't. So ever so carefully take it to pieces.. Twist everything relative to itself Refit it all pointing the correct way *, make a bracket for the waste gate dodar Looks good and my tape measure says it will fit. 😁 Oil feed and drain next. Then work out how to attach the exhaust... (*by eye. What's the betting I'll be here again!)
  5. A smidgen of fettling the new engine has occurred. The manifold turbo flange is an odd size and despite much internetting I could not find out either what size it was or anything to fit it. Got a link pipe that almost fit and was intending on lots of drilling and filling but super Tom decided that that was a shit idea. "go clean them up with a flap disc and get it as hot as you can with a blow torch" says e. 😁 Is there nothing he can't do? Left it being heated by the blow lamp to even out the cooling stresses. Jolly Good. 😁
  6. That’s a 40mm dial gauge attached to a VAG3313 (I think) diesel pump tool. Goes up the central port of the injection pump. 0.55mm piston lift is desired at TDC. Zero gauge on approach as you creep the engine over Boost teed into the inter cooler outlet to turbo control valve. Probably not the best place and next time would tee into the MAP sensor feed (by the expansion tank)
  7. It's still smoking like a northern nan when cold, so swapped the rest of the injectors (so it's now back on the red cars set) and checked the timing.. 0.55 is the magic number. Son of a.... Luckily, for your convenience you can adjust it by moving all of the components pictured. That's 0.55 mm we are searching for... There is no fine adjustment mechanism. Patience little one. Ding dong. 😁 Thats close enough. Wonder what it will be like in t'mernin
  8. Osrams are great. They do not last forever, but I’ll use them for 2 winters then replace for the 3rd. Get real ones from Osram not oooo they’re cheap osrams from China. I’m a complete convert, everything used at night gets them. It’s nice being able to see where you are going. Not mentioned above is check the voltage that the bulb sees. Tiny voltage drops result in large lumen losses. All those connections with corrosion growing will be stealing light. Edit. cant read, skatrd did it first
  9. I’m sure my fuel gauge used to be top centre, it defo had about three quarters of a tank variance between left and right hand turns. Sounds like a decent year tbf, but you could have replaced all that with “Toyota Aygo”, but where would be the fun in that. 😂 Also, good spread of countries there, something Russian, yank or Australian next?
  10. Dedicated Volvo fettling. Good work. Bet you were swearing when you sussed the TC seating!
  11. Lhd weird 70s fiat saloon badged as a seat. Niche. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F133287976307
