    Very tight but this does the job



    The box and engine now sit on their proper mounts

    Default House's ITB XE build and re-build

    Managed a sneaky day with Ben today to sort out some pipework, still a few bits to add but the main bit is done, joiners will be replaced with black ones when the time comes to install it properly.







    Also got the heater diverted valve mounted up, plumbed and working.



    Although it looks tight there is 12-15mm of clearance to the joint



    Washers to be welded to the bulkhead for the connections



    Made this on the lathe and mill, little grub screw to hold the outer cable. Works well enough



    More to come tomorrow.

    Default House's ITB XE build and re-build

    Another busy day today

    Spent the whole day making this, I did most of the bending and drilling, Ben did the gluing

    Started by working out a layout we were happy with and measuring the confines of a box we would keep them in



    We are going to make some link bars to connect the filters to the pump in the correct way, so to make sure everything was installed inline for those to work, firstly I had to cut up some of the AN fittings and turn them in the lathe and add an M10x1 thread for the banjo bolts to work.

    I made up this alloy bit of flat bar to hold the pump and and pre-pump filter inline and an then made up an outline frame.



    Added some tabs and a flat bar in the middle for support



    Moved the flat bar to the post pump filter and made up some braces to hold that in place



    Just needs to be glued together properly now we know it will work



    Roughly placed it will sit here





    Other little bits and bobs



    The flow is the wrong direction but Iíll order the right one for this application





    Gearbox cooler pump bracket that I made yesterday glued on in place, the placement of this was solely chosen by how we could run the hoses, putting it here worked perfectly with the box and cooler inlets and outputs

    Nice little touch and nod to all the work Ben has done



    Oh and Craig put an idea in my head, then these arrived







    These are unreal. Proper bit of kit!!

    Yeah I know!! I looked and mused and next minute I had a set!!

    We're hoping to get the car off for exhaust in the next couple of weeks hopefully by the start of December, then back for a few more bits and bobs, hoses and plumbing by first week of Jan. full dry build by the end of jan, paint start of feb, assembly end of feb, rolling road first week in March.

    In other news.

    Got hold of this Irmscher front valence, fixes directly to the front of the car for use with a skinny front bumper



    Got a rear one too, undecided on it



    Fuel pump also arrived, got the connector soldered on, all these bits coming together now



    Steering wheel too

    Not been on here for ages. Builds looking mega. Alan is doing a fine job.

    One thing though. That sureseal connector is rated at 7.5amps so not really adequate for a fuel pump. I have every type of connector/splice and crimp tool you may need here, just let me know when youíre up next and come and grab some bits.
