Glad you were able to get something setup with him. Well worth it!
Yeah, I got the Quaife!Thanks again. I feel he does great work. Did you get the Quaif?
I have a friend that works for a freight company, so I got the hookup on price. From NC to CA i'd imagine it would be about 250 each way. I paid 125 each way. And yes, I cut a pallet, and built a wooden box around it.What''s the rough cost of shipping coast to coast? Did you have to build a crate to hold it?
Full teardown and inspection. Replaced all the old synchros and updated a few parts. Mine needed a new input shaft and a few gears, so it got expensive quick. The Quaife LSD was installed and a few tolerances were tightened to accommodate the extra torque. Total cost was close to 2500$What was done? Cost (is you don't mind) Thanks.
And like that she's back on the road.
Currently running a stock file adapted for the 1050's to run on the stock turbo and the lightweight stuff for the break in period. Have about 500 miles on it so far. Should be putting the big turbo on in a month or so!
Because it was just surface rust from it sitting for a month it should just wash off with the oil. No big issues there.Mulchy:
I see some rust on your crankshaft counter weights... do you worry about stuff like that when rebuilding? Or is it just a little iron content that will wash out in the first oil change?
I plan on it very soon. I have the calipers and brackets, just haven't ordered a set of lines yet. Benn more worried about getting it road worthy than anything else!Mulchy, why You don't install 300mm vented rear brakes from 9-5 Aero?
The improvement of the braking is remarkable.
The 9-5 caliper is a floating caliper, while the chance of failure due to fatigue of moving the lines back and forth is probably relatively low, the correct and safest way is to use a flexible line (or at least a portion of).;ol;
Also You can bent stock brake lines, if it is necessary. It's working too.
