2.5 petrol rebuild and conversion to EFI thread?

I didn't spot it, thankfully, others did. I can't guess how much extra faff it is to take pix and upload to a thread every time you as much as breathe. Yet what goes round, comes round. I promise, I don't get things right all the time either, the lesson here is definitely,  others looking over your shoulder pays. Well done to those sharper than me.

 

And heaven be praised, the clutch is green.

The clutch came that colour. I don't know how much is marketing, but it's supposed to be a clutch designed for engines that will be abused a bit more than normal.

The workshop is a mess, I locked the door and walked away when it was done.

I feel your pain Brother 🤦‍♂️

Oh yes. We've been there.

 

It's why I don't do this for anyone else. I can walk away when I like/need.

I'll do a swift tidy up tomorrow, and go for engine in on Monday.

Gald you have it sorted. Green. Worth another £50 for that alone. Who makes heavy clutch-plates then?

Diff, thank you, well done for spotting and flagging this. I appreciate it.

You are welcome. Glad you hadn't put the engine in yet!

Regards, Diff.

Looked your clutch up. PowerSpec? I see what you mean wrt to the blurb, you can only do your best. Who knows what's truly being sold here. Gotta chuckle, reads like it's written by a man with delusions, and the world's tiniest winkle.

Yet his work on other clutch stuff is very good. Reduced force pedals, hd release bearings, wire clips for the push rods etc.

Happy to support an innovator, rather than a blue box shifter.

The various clutch bits, I think I'll assemble the fork and release bearing on the bench.

I might have to take the paint off the input pinion cover, as it will interfere with the release bearing slider lubrication.

I suppose that it would be bad to think about supercharging this, wouldn't it?

Grrr! Installation!   “Install” is a verb that uneducated US tv presenters have mangled into an incorrect noun. 🤮

It’s looking great.   Fitting it will be a big mile stone.

I did note the excess silicone was encroaching on the space between the crank and the block, so I put a much lighter bead on this time.

That's good - I was about to say that was waaaay too much silicone! :lol:

As a language, English has stolen words, grammar and idioms from every other significant language (and French!!) on earth. It's a bas'tard mongrel language, and rightly proud of it.

I think recycling colonial phrases that have dropped out of use in England over time, isn't something in going to get irate about.

Know what I mean, Innit, daddio?

Some men like copious amounts of it, but not typically in this application...

Not at all, perfectly normal thing to think about, and the good thing is, you have MS, so you don't need to do it now, and then just retune it.

Belt driven centrifugal?

Don't even get me started on 'invite' -it is a *VERB* not a noun. 

Sigh.

The clutch prep was fairly straightforward, I cleared the paint from the pinion cover.

I also tried to tighten the belhousing to box bolts, but I think they were tight enough.IMG_20200720_111325.thumb.jpg.278110ae75af1c231b1911c563bf1809.jpg

 

New ww socket now on order. I've had that one nearly 30 years. Cheap set from Argos.
