Happier days. HBH waiting in the Yorkshire forest. When the three of us were waved past the breakdown, we absolutely fled down that gravel track. Ok for me on Goodyear Rally Specials but Mike was - oh so worried - about his new paint. All credit to him though, he kept up.

- Just to inspire you. :)

The head's off, revealing a gasket blown on cylinders 2&3, a light carbon coating and somewhat polished bores. Oh, and a possible explanation for the snapped head bolt. Twas the middle bolt betwixt the spark plugs, and it was a long bolt...transposed from a shorter bolt as found beneath the camshaft. OOPS :o All the rest were where they should have been. Sump comes off tomorrow... The head will need a skim, having placed a straight edge across.

Just taken a peek behind the fancy dash as a recce for forthcoming rallye dash to find...nothing. By that I mean nothing to bolt a binacle/ralye dash plus crash panels to :o
Somene's cut the bodywork away almost to the heater vents acros the whole width and replaced it with the twin curve MK3 panel top...not impresed!
So...if anyone has or knows of a SCRAP late MK1/MK2 that I can have some metal from then PLEASE let me know.

Nick,

Without pics I'm thinking blind here but can you weld in some kind of steel tube across the front (maybe between the rollcage 'a' posts?) and mount a dash to it, or perhaps you're after a more traditional look?

Re: Meltdown Motorsport - Another fine mess.

Post by Meltdown » Sun Jan 09, 2011 6:25 pm

Been mucking about in the garage today, picked up the water pump by the pulley and...wondered why the body didn't spin. Turns out the pump's a bit sticky taking a small amount of effort to start turning. Now I'm pretty sure an external dousing of oil wouldn't have caused this so suspect that it didn't turn on that fateful day which most probably meant there was no hot water going through the system, so the leccy fan wouldn't have kicked in (not that the fan had anything to cool). Perhaps the mystery is finally solved, but I didn't hear any fan belt squeal.
Why is nothing ever easy?

/\/\I would judge more effort than a fanny belt would give to get it going. Once spinning then no problem. It matters not as I'll be fitting an EWP in due course.

Thanks, CovClimax.
To bring this up to speed I've been offered Cov's dash metalwork which I'll sort out in due course. Just collected my fibreglass doors bonnet & cover too, the latter 2 will be bolted on once painted and I'm looking at lightening some Imp hinges and seeing if they'll do instead of external hinges for the doors.
I also have a fire extinguisher kit, cut-off switch and tow hooks to bolt in.
My dearly Beloved bought me the MSA starter pack for crimbo so I'm off to the doctor sometime soon plus ARDS course.
Things are also looking up on the truck front. After much searching I've come to the conclusion that finding a decent cab isn't practical, and got a call from a friend who has a truck for sale which has been regularly serviced and used for motorsport for some years so should be ready for my needs. I'll go see it tomorrow.

Thanks Mark, but half the point of using a truck is that I don't have a tow vehicle. Fuel consumption aside a truck will hopefully prove to be useful as it gives instant accommodation, and it's cheap to insure plus costs the same as a car to tax. And it's fun :D

Will do. The grp panel supplier mentioned your name, Colin, a guy near Portsmouth.
Nowt to see really as yet, just an Imp sans engine & box.

The truck's now on the bay, starting price approx what I'd get for scrapping it. If you can cope with the welding on the cab (not an easy task or my 'man who can' would have) or find a replacement then all it needs is a lightweight ramp and you can take your Imp in the back. It's a Leyland Daf Roadrunner, it'l be obvious which one.
Replacement truck is ready to go, having been used by a Radical racer I believe. Hopefully buying it in the next week or 2.
Work on the car suspended whilst I strip Wimps bits in her ongoing resto...on that note can all you racers who have their cars at Rons please pick them up so he can get on with Wimp :D We're banking on having her looking bootiful for NW.

Well that was a refreshing change... Wimps king pins came out with no hassle or lump hammer/hydraulic press :D To be fair, though, it was me who fitted them some 15 years ago. On the downside I can't get the horizontal stub axle bolts out, the nuts are rounding :o Out with the file to go down a spanner size methinks, unless one of you has some wisdom to share.

Wimp can have the rear konis and all the montes from HBH, just need some suitable front shocks - spax methinks.

Try a metric spanner on it first- you know how they are always just a bit too tight to fit the Imperial- this is when they come in handy on them!

6-point impact socket and hammer it on then use a breaker bar. Failing that, ultimately the power file (angle grinder) might be best, grind mostly through the nut then split it with a cold chisel.

Halfords Professional sockets apparently drive on the flats of nuts and bolts, rather than on the corners, which in your case are now nicely rounded. I find that they work really well. :)

The truck's fetched a reasonable price on the bay, fingers crossed the deal runs smoothly. Once thats gone I can bring the new truck in and can then get the car off for a new cage. The road engine rebuild is taking a back seat in proceedings...I'd rather get hold of a half decent race engine soon. Not had a lot of luck on that front having missed out on two opportunities now.

Rear suspension mods in progress. Mega wide-bodied konis coming off (trailing arms have been battered/relieved for clearance, so perhaps they won't be going on the coupe after all, pity) bushes so far coming out easily with my homemade puller and newness polybushes a cinch to fit. Have to say it's a real pleasure to work on a car that's clean, rust-free and with no seized bolts (as yet, fingers crossed).

One side of the rear is now resplendent with AVO, 800lb zebedee and polybushes, needs check strap. Other side has Koni, monte and rubbers, needs time...
Meanwhile Wimps suspension/brake bits are nearly stripped ready for blasting.

I take it all back. He appeared today with a wad of readies and has promised to collect by the weekend :o
Those bolts didn't stand a chance, mind :D More fettling this evening...
Now looking forward to monday's ARDS, wonder if they'll let me choose between the Elise and the 370Z? Quick opinion poll please :D
Do me a deal? Employ me for 3 days and pay me for what I'm currently being paid for 5, then I'll have time to do everything!
