Re: Restoration

TBH, I'd have got it rodded and had the pipes pressure checked before doing that.

Re: Restoration

It will take a while. But the issues were the space inside the wings and where the pipes come out in relation to the chassis rails and the cross member underneath. Also, the D1 pipes are larger in diameter. Don't know about those ones.

Re: Restoration

Cool.

I've got D1 manifolds and they were a very tight squeeze. I still have the original manifolds however.

Re: Ebay again

looks like it's been in dry conditions too. So it is probably a good base for a rebuild.

Re: Restoration

Good to see you're up and at 'em again. Life's twists and turns are often not predictable.

I think I'd use a metal heater pipe under there, but I'd also work out how I'd mount it with rubber wrapped clips otherwise you might find the vibration causing problems.

Good luck

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

I have never before seen an engine rebuilder use filler like that. One hopes that the bolt heads are tightened to correct specs.

We would not normally use gaiters in this part of the world. Mud, grit, and water can get trapped inside and cause rust and pitting on the balls.

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

I had similar problem. My PTO is a front facing Thomas chain drive from the top PTO output. It reaches down toward the chassis rail and intersected where the exhaust wanted to go. Some hammering and welding was required to get it to fit, but it also hits the cross member from time to time as a resul...

Re: some exotic Stage 1 in Germany

The 8000lb Thomas is great. That is what I have on mine, converted to PTO drive from electric.

The misalignment for the exhaust is not surprising given the lower PTO was designed for the One Ten Perentie conversion. But that rear output is a real rarity alright. Well done getting it.
