    so i knocked up a heat riser blanking plate at trade school while bored at work this week. just have to retap the nut threads and she should be sweet.

    hopefully the belt sanding on the bottom is square enough to seal




    last night i started pulling the diff and leaves. she's just sitting there waiting to be rolled out and the new diff swung in. also brought home a spare BA 16" rim to test offsets.



    also i loosened the radiator and started nutting out the intercooler placement. and fucked off the battery tray as its roughly where the turbo will sit. the old bracket looks like a handy jigger to brace the turbo/exhaust from.




    then after 2 hrs sleep last night i got up and trundled off to the castlemaine swap meet. must have been delirious with the lack of sleep coz i went sick..

    bought a battery box, front and rear spring eye bushes for the leaves, and a 650 double pumper holley

    then i bought a small portable arc welder + gear bag, and a 'working' impco L convertor.




    so cost list so far on items allocated for this car
    car $200
    cooler $40
    650 holley (unmodified atm) $170
    bushes $60
    LSD 2.92 rear diff $90 iirc

    total $560

    major items still to buy

    turbo/nos
    intake and exhaust piping
    BW51
    auto overhaul kit
    slicks (if i cant borrow some)

    Simo might be able to talk you through beefing the BW35 with some BW41? parts...we talked about it a while back and he said a bastardised BW35 with some better bits fitted might be up to the task...

    About time you showed this thing some love!
    1990 E30 BMW 318is - In progress!
    1974 KE25 Corolla Coupe - So much rust...
    1955 Matchless G9 - On the road and loving it!
    1954 Matchless G80 - Because the one above runs too well so I need something more broken...
    And a fucking 1962 Rover... Because that makes sense

    A BW35 will handle the lack of use just as well. Rust and spider webs are the real killers. lol

    time for an epic thread dig..

    so i still havent bought a turbo kit yet, and missed a cheap BW51 rebuild kit on ebay yesterday.. so hopefully they relist it.

    last tuesday i finally pressed the bushes into the rear springs and started test fitting the VJ diff tonight.

    found out the axle tubes are bigger than VG's so im going to have to rape one of my parts cars to get the right spring/shock mount and U bolts. cable tied them in for now and tried the BA rim on it. it works but will sit a tad to far in. will try an EF rim and my GTR rims to see if they fit better.

    ok success!

    GTR rims fit almost perfectly. at worst ill need a 5mm spacer which i can make at work. also ill have to machine down the axle hub to suit the GTR rims, which i should be able to do at trade school. it will also give me an excuse to put new axle bearings in and fit CM rear brakes to the diff

    oh and the GTR has semi's on the front so i dont wont need to beg/steal/borrow/buy some slicks for this!!

    so for future referance, anyone fitting a VH/CM diff to a VE/VG will need +30 offset rims on the rear.
