Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

But that snapped one in the corner will pose a problem. I'd put a nut on it then blast the middle with the mig welder, making sure you have enough current to penetrate the stud. Let it cool before reheating the case around it with a decent sized propane torch, whilst gently back n forthing it with ...

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

Double nut jobbie and some heat from a heat gun.  The studs have been soaking in plus gas for a month there abouts. Just the heat gun wont shift the stubborn ones, which makes sense it hasn't the power really, but it did well. Ordered a stud removal tool to get the broken one out. Might cut the othe...

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

They look ok in the picture but they are all pittied. So rather than take any chances im swapping the lot. The other side is the same. Got three off the other side before I gave up for the day. The others are being a real git, so I think I need some more heat. I thought about getting some of that sh...

Re: Water leak

It's quite cramped there as maxstu says. You should be able to get away with it as its the right side as you might struggle wrestling the whole pipe out behind the pulley etc. Thankfully it comes in bits so you can remove the clamps holding the rubber pipe and once you remove the hardware holding it...

Re: A Numpty and his 2.1 Project

So, some more slow progress today decided to start on this horrid job of head studs. With some heat and some faffing using locking two nuts together on each stud I managed to get some off. Had to stop as I knackered the thread on the nut I was using and I couldn't find any others.. plus it had got d...

Re: Digifant lump replace with Digijet

They're not both DJs, it's digifant so is originally an MV or SS. The exhaust will need to be swapped as it needs the lambda probe for digifant to work. Copy the timing mark off the MV pulley, mark it on the DJ pulley (or swap pulleys), and time it the same. You'll effectively have a high compressi...

Re: Digifant lump replace with Digijet

The workshop manual has the timing on 28-9, If they are both DJ's they should have the same timing so he shouldn't need to mess with anything as long as the engine he's putting in has the timing set correct? Swapping the distributor should be the only thing you need to do I woulda thought between Di...

Re: Sliding Door Repairs

I wouldn't know unfortunately I'm no welder, I would assume a lap weld would give a bit more strength but you'd need to make sure you have enough good material to do that, plus I assume putting a lap weld on the outer skin means you'd have to work the metal to make it flush. This is a job I need to ...
