engine dont move, i never knew about that bush stiffness rating thoe, less engine movement will help you put more power down but apart from comfort is there any other negative to harder rubber? ;P

I wold agree, the engine being still means more precise gear changes, would probably reduce/kill wheel hop too, only downside being you will feel the engine through the car more, some people would find that a good thing, personally i like the race car feel so i cant wait

right heres a few pictures of from when i took my engine out and took it to bits. and seeing the wrinkle red cover im gonna go back to it as it looks well better!

this is also my first time taking an engine out, but as i was doing it, i found its not really that hard. anyway here they are.











i did most the work myself with little help from my friend.

and now thinking before it goes back on the road to take the engine out again and paint it up and give the bay a good clean if not strip the whole lot and get it sprayed.

Welldone for getting stuck in, its the only way you learn!

What have you done to teh engine, why did u take it apart?

Blue rocker looks good but its slightly understated in a engine bay of red bits

i took it apart cause bottom end went. big ends were ablitorated!

yeah i just did it cause i was bored but regret doing it now, think im gonna have a go at doing it wrinkle red. and bake it in the oven this time Smile

im scared to how the 304 will sound, especially with the 4-2-1 and decat!

do you know how much coolant is needed ezza?

need to get some.

Ohh, how did you do the big ends in?

You wont need to bake the rocker btw, i always just use normal primer paint and laquer and its always been fine.

Im not sure on coolant bud, best thing to do is fill it with water and keep a track of how much its taking then add the approprate amount of neat antifreeze.

Going round Orbital's having a play with the SIR ;-)
Just ran it very, VERY low on oil and the inevitable happened.
Standard Procedure - Top your shit up, just like you'd strap your shit up.

I think you'll agree ben that we need a TOA meet at the Orbitals

Glad to see more progress with it mate, and the 304 will sound the shit! cant wait to go for a spin in the rebuilt '9, compare it to when it was standard

I bet when you get it running again it will take time for you to get your confidence back in it if you built it yourself, i know it has for me, im still not 100%

Its not worth it man, if you get had without all your propper shit youv had it, just wait man (i know im one to talk)

I also had the random 'ping ping ping' of a bolt or nut falling out the engine bay when i floored it for the first time, i shit myself lol. tbh i dropped a few nuts and bolts in the bay while i was putting it back together that i couldnt get back so i just got another lol

the noise is the same noise as when the thrust bearing as gone. so i changed it and the noise is still the same :S

the noise goes away when you put the clutch in.

the noise is there when its in nuteral, havent tried it in gear yet.
