It seems to work arranging Kodak meets well in advance, giving everyone plenty of warning so there are no excuses for not turning up including me :oops:

Arrgh only last week I was thinking of pm'ing you Simon about the next Kodak to hint at the 11/12th as this is the only weekend I have free from July to October due to Wedding photography. Shame...Nutcase could have given me a lift in his car (he says hopelessly optmistically :cheesy: crack on Rich!!!).

Matthew

Any chance then of nudging Kodak forward by one weekend then?

Anyone from the SW massive up for a convoy,meeting for breakfast en route?

Matthew
24-08-04, 04:46 PM
The AMM's certainly metal bodied. I should have looked before posting really, shouldn't I? :cheesy: Thanks for the offers chaps :D

As for the convoy, I quite fancied doing a different route to Kodak this time. A40/A436/A40/M40/M25 is much more enjoyable than the usual M5/M4/M25 slog and the roads are just as fast in the early morning (I did 150 miles of Gloucester to Essex in 2h 10m on Saturday morning).

John, can you bring your Gunson CO2 meter to Kodak? (j.w. ok!)

Tomdoun
25-08-04, 02:25 AM
i could do with a gunsons easy bleed brake kit if anyone could spare one.

will people be bringing spares etc they want to sell or swap ??

If it's not too much trouble, and if you don't mind of course, will you be able to offer me guidance/angle grinder help regarding the removal of my airbox snorkel?

Would it be best to do this on the ramp..?

Cheers,

Nah,A trolley jack and an axle stand will do.Can do it from either the undertray ,or from the n/s wheelarch.Get some WD40 on the nuts/bolts now to make them easier to undo on the day.

Did Alan ever find out why his pads got trashed so quickly?

Matthew
26-08-04, 09:57 AM
Not AFAIK... might be something on the 9000 forum though. I assumed that heavy braking + heavy car was too much for them and they chronically overheated. On the way home, we were in a car with no brakes :o :o

The brake pads also ended the useful life of his ATE grooved discs.

The brake pads also ended the useful life of his ATE grooved discs.It was the worn out discs that stuffed the pads imho, nowhere for the heat to go but back into the pad, combine this with the puny brakes of a 9000 to its not inconsiderable weight.

I've always used a rule of thumb that whatever the min' thickness is on the front relative to new thickness I take the halfway point as the time to change.

Matthew
26-08-04, 10:36 AM
The ATE discs didn't look worn out... there was plenty of groove depth left. How worn from new they were, I don't know. Alan fitted them at the 3rd Kodaks IIRC and Elvington was the car's first trackday.

LOL it probably is years now! My first Kodak was either the 2nd or 3rd... 3rd I think. I had the T16 for that, would be the one after August 2002.

Simon
26-08-04, 12:05 PM
I remember the one I missed last year very well, as I was on holiday in Portugal at the time, in bed asleep and my mobile started ringing about 9:00am. It was Dave B wanting to know if Paul had remembered to bring his Forge Actuator to Kodak! :o :lol:

Matthew
26-08-04, 12:56 PM
I was going to attend the previous Kodak, but I bottled it... then when I finally did attend, I remembered why I'd given it a miss :lol: :P :P ;) ;)

I felt very geeky rolling into a car park filled with fellow nuts and not knowing who was who. What was most embarrassing was introducing yourself twice: "Hi I'm Matthew, um er <insert crap screen name here> on the forums :oops: :oops:".

Then I discovered that some folk tune crap Chrysler Neons :o and I realised I wasn't that sad afterall ;)

nutcase
26-08-04, 05:17 PM
I've been twice, but my car never has. Not sure if it's going to make it this time either :( Up until last week my plan was to go to a RR do in the morning, then head on over the Kodak for the afternoon. But as it looks increasingly like I need at the very least new seals/bearings in my turbo, I'm not sure if the car's going to be in a fit state to do anything :(

boxman

I may be along to do a front wheel bearing on the 90. Anyone done one before and can give advice? I've had the driveshaft out of the other side recently so I can get that far.

Any special tools required?

Alan trashed a brand new set of DS3000s during one trackday (Elvington).

I've done several track days on the same set and they're still only half worn.

Matthew
01-09-04, 08:19 AM
I think you might need a hydraulic press for the wheel bearings.

Matthew
01-09-04, 08:45 AM
:cheesy:

I think that pre-'87 900s have separable bearing/hub assemblies but you need a special puller to get them apart. What's the betting that the 90 has the same front-wheel setup as a pre-'87 900?

I'll bring a large tub of Swarfega with me to Kodak.

BillJ
01-09-04, 09:29 AM

It's the same as the 900 -'85. The wheel bearing is different from '86 on but I've no idea what's different about it.

Anyone know how to change the wastegate actuator on a Garrett T3? :cheesy:

Matthew
01-09-04, 10:09 AM
Unclip the arm from the wastegate, pull off the vac hose, unbolt from the bracket and remove? Might be more complicated if you're fitting an aftermarket actuator, as I think the bracket could be permanently fixed to the actuator's capsule.

As long as you can get the hub off the car, and have a large pair of internal circlip pliers I think things should go ok. I have a drift (aluminium though, so not for bashing with a hammer!) that's the right size for those bearings.

The pillar drill there should be good enough to press the old one out and the new one in. Depends how crudded up it is in there. Admitedly, when I did it I used a ten tonne press, but that was total overkill! However, if someone local to me wants to pop over to pick the drift up then they're more than welcome

However... I won't be down until the afternoon, if at all!

Might be worth bringing a small wire brush to clean teh bore up with. And definitely worth lashing the balljoint bolts with WD40 for a few days in advance!

You could possibly do it with the hub on the car, but I wouldn't reccomend it - too easy to get the bearing going in at a funny angle.

there's a metal pipe about 3/4" diameter right in front of one of the bolts :( Don't know what it is or how to move/remove it :cry: Time to order a bentley manual I think.....

I'll probably come down and have a crack at it anyway (after the turbo's cooled down kids :nono; )

That sounds like one of the oil pipes. On my car this had to be removed to allow the wastegate bracket to be removed.

And most of you Mod's as well...tsk!

:D

Matthew
01-09-04, 04:38 PM
IIRC there should be minimal oil loss when the pipe's removed, as it should drain away into the sump. Best bring some spare with you just in case.

Tom, you must get a new turbo oil drain gasket from the Saab dealer. It's not possible to remove the pipe without destroying the gasket in the process.

I think the part number's 75 18 970, but you'd better check.

BTW, London Scamera Partnership say on their website (http://www.londonspeedcameras.com/swf/locations.asp) that they're operating mobile speed traps in Harrow on 4th September. So be careful in convoy, or whe you take someone's 300BHP car for a test drive.

Just at the mention of greasey eggs, bacon n black pudding; I have to say sorry i wont be down.

Like the ejit that i am, forgot that my folks are away and that im volunteered by them to child mind the dogs. Now I dare not leave them for that length of time, and bringing them with me with there love of licky leather and windows is out of the question :-?

I dont hate my neighbours that much to leave em chained up in the garden either.

Have fun guys, all the best :cheesy:

There might be a problem with bay 3. There was a Japanese thing in there with the engine out a couple of weeks back and it seems the guy who owns it was waiting for some bits from Japan or the US or somewhere, so I don't know if it's still there or not. Hopefully it will be gone by Saturday!

That would be me.

However

Sorry folks I shall after sit out this meet. It is short notice I know but the wife has to work. First day of new job, training and all that. There is no one to look after the two little ones. I would bring them if it was just my daughter who's 5 but little man is just 2 years and he's a handful and teething at the moment.

My apologies for this I am gutted I really enjoyed the last one.

I hope to catch some face's at Duxford next weekend.

Nice to see Munki is doing those CV boots about time... :wink:

Ok, I shall try my best to make it. BUT I will be in Norfolk for a Rolling Road do at 9am, and am hoping to leave there about 11. If I do make it and the ramp's free, I wouldn't mind putting it on the ramp so I can have a gander for oil leaks, but that's about it (assuming nothing's gone wrong on my marathon journey!).

A thoroughly enjoyable Kodak, despite the low turnout. The weather was fantastic and the company 8)

Big thanks to Alex for helping me fix a long standing idle problem; Alex (again), Jon, John and Richard for getting the car's fuel mixtures sorted out.

The car felt sweet on the way back. Boost's nice and steady, and it pulls well in all gears :cheesy: Thanks guys 8)

Heading West on the way home, I as treated to the sun setting on the Oxfordshire countryside, with vapour trails being the only blemishes in a perfect sky :D 8)

You think you know a bit about cars, but then you meet someone like Jon (boxman) and then you realise that you don't know anything. Clearly, the man knows far too much ;)

I forget exactly who suggested I need the extra sump breather pipe with one-way valve, but the same list of knowledge sources as Matthew provided covers the suspects :) Me not included of course. Actually, I'm not sure why I'm on the list, all I did was move the gastester a couple of times :D

Thanks John for letting me drive your lovely T8. Even on just 12PSI, the engine has loads of torque everywhere and feels so unstressed even at high engine speeds. Utterly addictive :D

That's the way a tuned 900 is supposed to be, and driving it has renewed my belief in the 900.

t'll be interesting to see if George improves on the 376BHP made at Dastek on 14th August as I believe he was expecting more.

I was not expecting much this time ...

I had only got the car running properly at 5 the day before and no time to do any adaptation runs

so 350...300 at the wheels (limit for the dyno)
(sounded good tho)

anyhoo we have pretty well tracked down the source of the missing power
I would seem that the lumpy cams are very sensitive to cam timing and may need to be set up individually
:evil: :evil:
So a set of vernier sprockets are winging there way to me from sweden as we speak...

the ideal way to set these up is to try different timings and run them on the rolling road
I will be able to move the power band up the rev range where it is missing currently.
I am currently looking for some-one with that expertise

emerald would be ideal but their rr is too puny ...

any suggestions ?

then came a phone call to say my girlfriends dad was sick. we spent most of sunday trying to sort out an instant money transfer to south america so he could get urgent treatment. sodding rip-off to send money and a disgraceful medical setup, they wouldnt touch him untill the money was paid.

i drove to harrow at about 3pm, got lost for 1 hour then drove home utterly fcuked off.

sorry to nev for not being able to pick up the bits he was kind enough to bring along, i will be in touch to see if you can post them.

Powerstation in Cheltenham might be able to help. They regularly deal with powerful Scoobs so their dyno mustbe up to the job.

Closer to you though are places like Dastek and Star. Not sure where exactly these are, but they're all North of the border ;) There's Well Lane in Yorkshire too, and PE in London. A search on Scoobynet would get some addresses I expect.

In addition, somewhere that does a lot of Ford tuning could also be a good idea. Adjustable cam gears are often fitted to Escort and Sierra Cosworth engines and dialled in on a rolling road.
