A late reply but some fab work Col. I've used gti/vr6 bibs for 6 years and there was a lad before me (cbcen?) who used one before me even. They fit the car quite well imo :wink: 8)

Cheers Ash,
It was by looking at yours and cbcen's threads and possibly a few others that made me bite the bullet and buy one for a gti. Then of course chop it about to make it look like it was meant to be there. :D
I hope i have achieved that?? :wink: I did have a fibreglass bib ages ago but was afraid it would get burst at some point or another and just cause me grief with repairing every now and again.I
The gti one flexes so easily so will avoid that issue.

Cheers

Yes they will flex and take quite a beating really! mine have all been screwed on but have a 10mm x10mm square section support bar thats screwed to the bottom edge on the inside to give it a bit more support, you can't tell from the outside but I never really trusted it to stay together :)

Cool, It obviously works for you though.

Tonight it was a bit of remove the engine, diff and framework so i can full weld up the frame, remove the engine but keep the the diff in the frame. This will help with finalising the driveshafts and give me more room with the engine out of the way.
Firstly the engine, diff and framework out of the car.

_20180805_222326.JPG
Then i placed the framework back in the car just because..
_20180805_222352.JPG
Busy week ahead at work but the plan is to weld it all up proper, and a bit of support for the diff, paint the diff and sort out the driveshafts.

Well this week has went as expected and been mad busy, a bit like the forum in some ways. :wink:

So the engine framework has been all welded up now and the diff refitted so i can trial fit the MX-5 driveshafts and the modified uj end.
I will jack the car up and place on stands so i can check how the shafts will move in the diff hoping all will be well with full suspension movement.

Scott,
No ujs fitted tonight as im just trial fitting the driveshafts at mo to try and get the current length or near enough first. Once i have more time i will cut the shafts a bit more then fit the ujs. Take the springs out and socks to fully check the suspension movement.
You can check it out on Wednesday :wink:

I found some UJ's with a grease nipple in the cup, makes it real easy to grease them.

Mike i think I will have to put straps onto the wishbone to prevent full droop as I have the short race springs in there and they may fall out if I don't.
One of the many runs still needing done

straps a good idea for when you are airborne long enough to allow damper to extend to full droop and spring can drop out. The point i was making is if the driveshaft can cope with the articulation from full compression to full droop jobs good, if at full droop the driveshaft could neck out insert spring and raise arm to just touch spring and then check drivesahft also allows length of check strap to be determined. At full compression you may neck out so a solid bump stop limiting travel would be required also.

Mike,
Thanks for the advance and concern. I have now tried it with the ujs in and all is well at full compression and full drop a far,as it will go before the springs would full out. Strps are still to be made up and fitted.
Shafts have been shorts Edge to suit and now welded up at the uj ends.

My other two Minilites have been lying around for ages now, possibly years looking scabby with old paint and the alloy polished rim looking sorry for itself. So this week paintstripper has been applied to remove the paint and laquer. All done now and tonight the rim has been rubbed down with 320,400 then 600 wet n dry before i try polishing them to progress to make em shiney. 8)

Keep going with the wet and dry up to 3000 if you can justify it - 2000 + is expensive but it will polish up real easy with a mirror finish.

Scott,
Tonight i have rubbed away upto 2500 paper then had enough and opened out the polish bars and buff on the drill.
This is the result, maybe not quite mirror finish but shiney all the same.
One done and one ready for the treatment.
_20180912_231407.JPG
Both done
_20180912_231337.JPG
Now i have to order the paint so they look the same as the other pair

Paint doesn't stick well to smooth surfaces it best to leave them unpainted and just polish them regularly.

Thank you. :D

I'm with Scott on this one, no lacquer(clear coat) on the shiny bits. Once I paint the centres the 2k lacquer will be applied but only over the paint.
Keep some polish and a rag in the glove box so I can wipe them down now and again.

Its not been often thats been said about some of my choices for The Pest, Andy :lol:
Cheers.

So whilst Im waiting on the paint to arrive for the wheel centres, thought i would sort out the door and rear arches cards that have been kicking about the garage for ages.
Black faux suede is the material of choice to be fitted over the alloy door cards i made up.
Roll out the material, mark it all out, cut with some overlap spray the glue to the alloy cards and material, stick together,, done!!

All for £14.99 a metre from that popular action site. It is 1500mm wide and i bought 2 metres so have loads left.
Still need to do the small panels in the footwells where the door post is.

I am writing this from the naughty step now, apologies!!!!
Anyway it is A26 hot orange that will be applied to my polished Minilites, sorry i said that word again.. and hopefully to the engine frame once 8 have all the bracketry etc welded, drilled and bolted to it.

Re: PES 989J... "The Pest" ...engine woes

Post by colimp66 » Thu Sep 27, 2018 4:12 pm

So the idea to put a Honda Blackbird engine in the Pest was brought about by what I thought at the time was a great offer of building a pair of wheels for a Norton Commando in exchange for said Blackbird engine and most of the ancillaries required to make it run.
After collection of the wheels and the dropping off of the engine it lay in the back of my garage for a we whilst before I decided to make the frame up etc to make it all fit, frame made engine fitted you've all seen it and upto this time I wasn't too concerned about the engine ever running , I thought it would be a runner or so I was told so didn't bother to check it(silly me). :oops:
Well when I did decide to check it, it was obvious it didn't turn over through 360 degrees for some reason.....???? MMm that's unusual so I took out the clutch to see if it was gearbox or crank related.. turn it over again or try to .. same result. So it wasn't the gearbox. Lets take the cam cover of and the rhs pick-up and camchain cover of to see if the chain had snapped??? Nope chain is ok and the cams are fine too... Oh dear.. :roll:

Ok take a deep breath, dig out the Haynes manual and pull the cylinder head of the thing and all becomes very obvious....
Engine with head removed.JPG
So it looks like before I got it has been lying to it's side with a vale or two open allowing water to collect in No.4 cylinder furring up the bore and top of the piston, No.1 cylinder was similar but not as bad and certainly no deposits of rust present in there like No.4.
Cleaned it all up the best I could and finally git it turning over 360 degrees but not is all well...
Further engine strip down, sump of to see what that can reveal and state of oil ..
Oil strainer.JPG
Underside of gearbox.JPG
So the oil had a bit of water contamination but the components in the gearbox looked good with no rust or debris... apart from a small piece of alloy which I wasn't sure of where it came from but became apparent once the casing was split and the pistons removed..
Piston 3 broken.JPG
And like this on the other pistons more or less , seized piston rings. :roll:
Seized rings no4.JPG
Disappointed and embarrassed that I didn't have a proper look at the engine way before now but we live and learn and although it looks bad I have already sourced a new top end crankcase with matching pistons at a reasonable cost. Whilst it is split the balancer shafts will be removed and new gaskets and seals all fitted on the rebuild.
The head may even get a fettle of a sort too. :D

Cheers
Col.

Due to the engine being in bits it would be wise to have a look at the carbs as well seeing I was in that way of thinking. If water was getting into the head and pistons the only way in was through the carbs.
This is the result of old fuel and water ingress on the float bowls.. the previous owner must have had it in a damp or leaking shed of some sort or possibly pulled it out form a pond .. I don't honestly know?? :roll:
Carbs float bowls.JPG
And here's a close up of two of the worst
Carb 2 foosty.JPG
Carb 3 foosty.JPG
Over the last two nights I have completely stripped the carbs and they have come up pretty well with all the jest and passages cleaned out and looking how they should thankfully so no damage done there. Which is a bonus.

No. 1 cylinder is a lot worse than your description over the phone, don't think any amount of sanding was going to get that sorted :o

Glad to hear you have a new one coming and nearly back on track :D

Scott,
I was trying to be optimistic and hopeful it would be better than it looked on first sight but once the pistons were out it was obviously a dead top end.

Glad I tracked down the top end for it easily enough :D

So its been afew months since any work has been done on The Pest as life and work took over as usual. Along with a serious amount of disappointment from opening the Blackbird engine up and seeing the damage 8 was unaware of.
Live and learn.. :roll:

So fast forward a bit, a better top engine has been sorted with pistons and this week a crank withmatching rods has also been purchased. My thoughts are basically build a motor that you know what is in it and you can modify as you go.
Today after a bad cold from Christmas i have got myself in the garage to look at what i have.
One of the mods for a Blackbird engine is to remove the balancer shafts(3 off) then blank of the oil feed to them as this is what takes the oil away from no.3 main bearing which in turn kills the motor.
This is what i did today, easy enough as the motor is split. I drilled out the oilways then tapped them for M8, suitably cut down a bolt, slotted it, some Loctite sure itin place, job done.
Had to flush out all the oilways of swarf and the rest of the casings and aswell as that i stripped the oil pump to check that over to..

Hi Colin,
Glad to hear you've sorted out your engine.
Hope no more complications.
You could always fit a Shimano Stepps motor haha.
Happy New Year
Alan
