What did you do to your car today


#2053

Stop copying meeeee next you’ll have a hx25 turbo :joy::joy:

Had a bit of creaking on front left. Thought it was a brake heatshield or arch liner or something. Then found it was likely a lower ball joint. Not good, when those fail it’s bad times all around.

So I got a Moog replacement, check out the difference:

Ok, I did go at the old one a bit with a ball joint splitter fork, but still. It was pretty much ready to fail.

This thing was an amazing purchase (fiver from Amazon lol). Had both sides of the ball joint out in seconds.

This was more emergency work than anything. Will be ordering the other side and sorting it soon, as well as the upper ball joints as these also look a bit past their best as well!

Also rear left shock/spring has started squeaking like mad so that’s another thing to sort, coilovers will be bought as soon as funds allow. Moving house will have to take priority for now though unfortunately.

Bit of fun today with wrinkle paint

#2056

Started taking more bits off my new engine…

Cracked the harmonic damper trying to pull it off haha


#2057

Am I missing something here… why are you taking parts off the new engine


#2058

Just changing the timing belt and water pump, much easier to do out the car in a warm room haha.

Going to swap the sumps over as well for the oil return.


#2059

Ahhhh ok well my turbo car now works and yours don’t


#2060

Mine will work again soon I hope haha.

Managed to get it off :smiley:

ended up just undoing the crank bolt by locking a screwdriver on my old flywheel round the back and jumping on a breaker bar a bit haha


#2061
