    Cambelt change, just venting

    its a fairly easy job but you will need the cam out to make it easier. use a gas torch to heat up the end to burn the locktight. then drill a small hole in the stud and use a easy out to remove it. if there is enough of the stud protruding then weld a nut to it and then remove it that way.

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    So a little update Managed to get the car into Paul at tpw engineering , #king_tuna1 for mapping and what a job he did. Can’t recommend him enough , really knows his stuff. Ended up with 243bhp and 196ft lbs torque , which is way more than I was expecting. Lots more low down pull aswell. So...

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    So had a play with the car this weekend . Got the fire extinguisher serviced for the last time as from 2022 it has to be a 4ltr with min 4 nozzles. Also string lined the car and was surprised that it wasn’t too far out from setting it up from last year. Just mapping left to do early feb ready...

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    So bit of an update. After a few issues with oil leaks then overheating lost all faith in the engine so have pulled it out and stripped it. (Was built by someone else) . Glad I did as although it has had some big money spent on it the build quality is a bit rough. Found loose bolts cheap water...

    no its a omex loom and ecu. to be fair the car has had some front impacts over its life so could be slightly out of shape but was fine on the old mounts. lol

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    Also fitted a new little upgrade, not sure how much use it will be but thought I would try it. It’s a tyre pressure monitor for each wheel

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    Bit more progress tonight. Got the engine wired up and a quick test run before connecting the rad back in. All seams good and engine sounds well. Only thing I have noticed is the increase in vibration with the pms mounts, also it sits a bit lower as can no longer fit front gearbox mount but...

    Tricolore trophy 2020

    We’ll manage to grab a couple of ours on the old girl tonight. Got gearbox fitted , some of the new pms mounts . fitted my sensors and got it in the car. It’s surprising how much more room there is without the standard mounts.

    Ryobi 400Nm Impact Wrench

    yep i run lots of Ryobi stuff for home, got the grinder , drills , impact gun , chainsaw, light, vacume, all good and works well. b&q sell it all aswell and have some good deals on. best to buy the kits with the 5ah or 4ah batterys works out a lot cheaper than buying them seperate

    knock sensor for omex 600

    thanks for the offer but not sure what that is to be fair. the standard sensor has 2 pins but not sure what wires go to it on the original loom as mine is standalone. now i have been told that the standard sensor is a resonant type but have no idea how to wire it in . the omex manual says that...
