Time for a bit of a catch up!

Last talked about was front suspension bushes and as advised I bought some required replacement parts which may or may not have been needed.

So nothing wrong with them :roll:

New parts were placed in the suitable places.
The first side took me almost two hours and the second only about 20 mins so was happy enough with that.

Next on the agenda was to change the exhaust which was rather rusty and had suffered a little but of damage when doing the above work which resulted in a rather large pile of rust which used so aid the passage of gas from front to back. It didn't tale long to remove the exhaust and to get it to clear the rear axle I broke it in two by hand! Super strength was not required for this though as it just about fell apart.

With the exhaust out of the way it was time to replace the old Asbestos heat shield and cage. With this out of the way I then discovered this!

The metal was so thin it felt as strong as a Coke can. Obviously having a wet heat shield next to the metal of the floor had not been great for the floor.
I then did this to it:

I employed my superb photography skills for both of these pictures and then decided I didn't need to take any more.
Now imagine a piece of metal welded in.

Good.

Now the new heat shield was fitted.
New stainless exhaust fitted.

Now the 'last' thing I needed to do was the Diff pinion seal which was weeping at MOT.

Pictures were not even considered at this point as I was cold, tired and uncomfortable.
With the prop out of the way I got a suitable socket on the large nut with a breaker bar, all this did was make the car move on the ramps!
I had to use my high quality Aldi pneumatic rattle gun which I had been dying to use for ages. What a brilliant piece of kit. Without this I think I would still be under the car probably crushed to death.
Seal prised out and new one fitted, all put back together and axle refilled.

After the last thrilling update I took her out for a test run on which she not only let me but herself down by basically breaking down.

The sensible thing to do was put her back in the garage and walk away so that is exactly what I did.

Thinking about the problem I decided that it was ignition related and was talking to Pete on the way through to the meet last month and decided that an electronic distributor was what would sort it out. This was ordered and quickly delivered. Finally I got round to fitting it.

Result are very good, I played about with setting the timing and it was running well. I need a new connector for the vacuum pipe but that is all. Once that arrives I will tidy up the wires and move onto finding the knocking from the front which is only there after changing all the bushes.
I have been over the front suspension twice looking for anything loose/worn but have not found it yet! Any ideas that might not be obvious?

A lot of cleaning up is needed in the area and the plan is to get the gearbox out next before cleaning up as much as I can.

Most are like that.

A mixture of oil, clutch dust (friction plate and carbon thrust bearing) and filings from flywheel and starter pinion.

Usually cleans out quite easily with suitable brush and paraffin/jizer etc.

Main thing is to keep the jiggle pin in and it and the area clean so any oil leak will run out on the floor :D

Well it has been a while since Gwen got some attention!
She needs some work which is of the 'a stitch in time' nature.

I luckily have the facility to park her up and ignore her for a long period of time but eventually the time comes when I need to get on with it. That was today.

That is only about an hours worth of scraping to get the top half cleaned off!

Well it has been quite a while. I have been preoccupied with normal life getting in the way (being lazy) I tried a new career being a local bus driver but the hours were just too random so I went back to doing what I know servicing safety cabinets, pharmacy production suite and all of that type of thing. Then of course coronavirus came along and I find myself on the shielding list. Work have been brilliant so I'm very lucky there. About 3 minutes later I discovered that I'm going to go mad if I'm just stuck at home so off to the workshop with no interaction with anyone else.
First up was sort my car which had a rusty subframe

When I pulled it out it was a lot worse than could be seen under underneath. While I was at it I checked the rest of the car which led to some sill and arch welding, throw in some paint and job done.

Get the Toledo job that had stalled a LONG time ago.

Sorting this as a short term fix. It needs wings and a front panel which are available from the club but are collection only which isn't going to happen at the moment so enough metal was added to make it structural enough to hold the filler that was going to be required.


Then some paint was again thrown about to get it back out of the way.

Then the bit where the front of the rear wing attaches, I've done some work here years ago but the bit on the rear quarter is needing rebuilt.

Quick question, for the panel seam, am I as well piecing it in as I go around the arch?
I have a shrinker/stretcher that is a great bit of kit and next to where the seam was appears to be very sound.

Looks really good underneath, and you seem to have plenty space to work. How are you going to protect it once it's all cleaned?

Pete, I'm putting rust converter (Vactan type stuff) which has been proven to keep rust away from even bare steel left out in all weathers so I'm happy that it is not going to degrade, when I've replaced patches that need doing in going to paint it with por 15 that has stood up to some abuse without issue.

Delighted with the welder, I need more practice with it.

I could do with finding a good degreaser to help stripping off under the car.

Thought they were worth a try.

It turns out they work perfectly as intended.

Couple more days and the underside should be clean enough to move on to the next bit.

Really happy with the condition underneath, most of the original paint is still there.

Carried on again today.
First up was to yet again carry on with the cleaning underneath. Once I'd got the area behind the crossmember done it got a coat of treatment.

As I'd had enough of cleaning I got it into a slightly better position.

I'm starting on the rear arch area that is a bit knackered. The seam is a bit frilly in places. Time to get a slitting disc in the grinder.

That's where it was left for the day.
