Well made a start on the gearbox removal tonight after work as have got tommorrow and thursday off this week
Managed to get a reasonable amount done although doesn't look like loads, but have got driveshafts unbolted and power steering pipes all out of the way so am hoping all that is left is prop, transfer box, driveshafts out of the way and drop it down with the subframe in place if possible?
Has anyone removed the box with the subframe in place?
Heres some pics
Just as started (with the new rocker which hadn't posted on here yet)
Car back in its usual position lol
Boot and rear as a garage ;)
How it was left after a couple of hours work with the battery dropped back in for the alarm
Have started to clean the spare block down at work after stripping it down and not best pleased as had a cambelt snap at some point and the head and pistons are pitted where valves have bounced around which makes the pistons resale value ****e and was hoping on building the head in my own time with uprated valves, cams and possibly some porting
Am using a rotary wire brush on the block as is rusty and flaking, what paint do people use when painting there blocks?
I will get some pics when back at work of the head but i cant imagine it would be a goood idea to use it but will post up when got them for a few opinions of people in the know
