    After doing all this it was that time to start the car...





























    DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK!!.........


    oh dear....

    was not hydro lifters as it didnt shut up.... after changing the started motor as it was commin from that general direction we started it again.....

    DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK DANK!!.........

    wtf...

    after alot of scratching our heads and byzan doing alot of knuckle work we realized it was a tiny bit of the plate that goes between the box and engine was catching on the teeth of the fly wheel!! FFS! off with the starter again.. and after a bit of handy work it was time to start the car again.!!

    Sorrrrrted!!

    put it back together time!

    it is so quiet mate.... its less agressive (smoother) Feels so nice with a new clutch, pedels really light, power steering dont make a noise like my old lump and is also lighter.

    Seems to run ok altho it has splutter a couple of times. Mite clean the TB out and see if that helps. I fitted my double pod A piller gauges also, got some nice Swoosh 60mm jobbies. oil pressure and boost. (cheers mark)

    so far so good mate... goin to my mates garage to get the Aircon gassed tomorrow so happy days!

    It's no problem at all.. I do like a bit of engine swappage/conversions. Mark is infact a genius and hats off to him for finding that sound! Would have taken me a while to get that one lol.

    Sounds and looks like fun.

    Sorry I couldn't make it but between the MOT, sorting my dead fan and going fireworks shopping (all with a mild hangover) I ran out of time :(

    Deffo up for a meet though. Somebody pic a place and time and I shall do all I can to get along. Will bring camera, vid cam and mount along for some action footage of the fun and games.

    What engine is it?

    Good job. :) It took me 2 days to get the lump out of my old Golf, but I was working alone with the help of my trusty parcel trolley I bought from B&Q for £15! 30kg max load. *rolls eyes*

    Who needs an engine crane anyway? LOL

    I managed to get in the next morning at 7:30am after work and had to stay up until 12 for some deliverys we couldnt miss. Slept till 7 then back to work at 9:30 again.... just got in now from tonights work but im suprisingly awake.:think::think:

    Any other situation i would have brought the car but seeing as i had the crane and work to go to straight after is seemed the sensible option lol See if i had 60/40's im sure the crane would fit.....

    Dont replace until you have at least done an engine flush and an oil change. That could shut them up and would save a load of time :thumbsup:
