Post by: jure on 16:11, Sun 04 January 2009

Title:
Post by: markeyturbo on 23:50, Sun 04 January 2009
looks like a renault 19 16v rad on there....  IC seems a bit strange, and also breather setup looks a bit suspect over that hot turbo!
Title:
Post by: r5matt on 00:13, Mon 05 January 2009
ic = strange , look closer , thats it a tad closer wooo look at that pipe coming of the turbo to the ic thats almost flat aint it or am i going BLIND **question mark my friend what happend to your FMIC out of interest fellah?? that looked the tits of your 5
Title:
Post by: Ash-Lee on 00:15, Mon 05 January 2009
It's out of a Clio Sport if you read above.  :lol:

Looks quite clean, i haven't really seen many 5's with wide wheels, looks kinda good!  :wink:

As for under the bonnet i would rip all the pipework out and start again, looks like it has just been thrown in there. I don't think theres any real need for the larger radiator most people (including myself) get along with an efficient standard setup just fine.
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 00:27, Mon 05 January 2009
THANKS FOR THE COMMENTS GUYS  :lol:
WHEN HE COMES HOME WERE GONNA PUT THE COPPER CORE RAD BACK ON, PUT INTERCOOLER BACK WHERE IT SHUD BE, OIL SWIRL POT BACK WHERE IT SHUD BE, PUT ONE OV MY SPARE BOOST GAUGES IN IT TO SEE WHAT PSI ITS RUNNING AND THEN SEE WHAT HAPPENS FROM THERE.  WERE ALSO GONNA MOVE THE OIL COOLER TO BEHIND THE BUMPER AND HAVE A GUD TIDY UP OV THE ENGINE BAY SO IT LOOKS NICE AND TIDY  :D
I'M ALSO GONNA TIDY UP THE FRONT BUMPER FOR HIM TOO

Post by: dgdogz on 11:39, Mon 05 January 2009

Title:
Post by: jure on 12:16, Mon 05 January 2009
Glad to hear that you will sort out the mess under the bonnet. Do it ASAP for gain in performances as well in reliability.
Title:
Post by: scratcher on 15:43, Mon 05 January 2009
The wheels look the shizz. Needs to be lower to get the full effect of them, if you get me?
I didn't notice the breather set up at first. Looks like someone's had a whale of a time with the Ripspeed hoses  :?
Good to hear its being sorted out though. Make sure you keep us updated  :)
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 16:00, Mon 05 January 2009

Post by: scratcher on 17:29, Sat 10 January 2009
That looks much better. And well done for getting out in the cold.
Would you need to have a bleed nipple in the hose from the pump to header tank?
Title:
Post by: Ash-Lee on 17:38, Sat 10 January 2009
Thats looking better, also theres no bleed nipple in that hose, it's in the top radiator hose.

Also something didn't look right but now i can see it, theres no water swirl pot.
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 17:52, Sat 10 January 2009
WAITING FOR THE WAITER SWIRL POT COMING FORM SMITHSGTT THEN THAT WILL BE STRAIGHT ON.

DOES HE NEED A BLEED NIPLE IN THE PIPE FROM THE WATER PUMP TO THE WATER SWIRL POT :?

IF HE DOES AL GET THE PIPES SENT OUT TO HIM FROM JOHN (SMITHSGTT)

I THINK IT LOOKS A LOT BETTER NOW AND IT WAS BLOODY FREEZING ALL DAY HAHA

you need one for getting all the air out the system

so i will put a hose  in the package for you
Title:
Post by: Ash-Lee on 17:55, Sat 10 January 2009
Yes theres a short piece of pipe from the swirl pot to water pump with a bleed nipple in.

WD40 will clean the oily handprints off the silicone pipes nicely  8) but try and wipe as much as you can off because otherwise it will leave them feeling a bit sticky.
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 18:00, Sat 10 January 2009
I THOUGHT THERE WAS MENT TO BE A NIPPLE IN THE HOSE FROM THE WATER PUMP TO THE SWIRL POT AND JOHN IS SENDING THEM OUT AS HE HAS COME TO OUR RESCUE ONCE AGAIN WITH BITS N BOB'S

WILL SPRAYNING WD40 BRING THEM UP GOOD THEN AS THEY DO SEEM TO MARK VARY EASY WITH OILY HANDS
Title:
Post by: smithsgtt on 18:03, Sat 10 January 2009

Theres several things that clean them up. I only said WD40 because theres usually a can of that lying around in most homes. A good spray on de-greaser will work and even baby wipes.  :shock:  :lol:

if he gets this other car he is going to break the rest of it once he has took the bits he needs to get sum money back off it so he will probs use that money an sum new stuff for the bottom end  :wink:  oh and he is obviously putting a uprated headgasket kit on it too and most probs put a new timing chain and tensioner aswell to be on the safe side. :wink:  :wink:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

but we will see what happens lol hopefully we will get the hoist today so it will be out
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 22:40, Sat 14 February 2009
well we got the engine out today and had to use man power lol to get it out as we got dropped in it once again with the hoist  :evil:

but its out now and we took the head off and it is deffo a good one as its ported and polished which is one thing the guy shaun got it off didnt lie about :wink:

also took the gearbox off and inlet/exhaust manifolds etc

it also had a uprated headgasket on it which is pretty new as it looks clean as fuck and non ov it was stuck to the bottom of the head/bottom end :lol:

so what state was the flywheel in???
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 22:52, Sat 14 February 2009
pretty fucked m8 al get a pic of that aswell for ya.

to me it looks as if its been lightened and balanced as it looks very smooth and a little bit shiny on it but dont really know  :?
Title:
Post by: smithsgtt on 23:14, Sat 14 February 2009
hmmm will let you know once you get a pic up take pic of the front and back of the flywheel
Title:
Post by: Ash-Lee on 00:55, Sun 15 February 2009
It should be shiny anyway, the clutch rubs against it. They only really wear around the starter motor 'ring' around the outside. Unless it has been run with a really worn clutch and the rivets on the clutch plate have scored the face of the flywheel.

I imagine it would be hard to tell if it has been lightened without actually weighing it.

well if you have worked on as many different cars  with different lightend and balanced flywheels you'll know by the sight of one

Doh! How foolish of me to make that previous comment, i build engines for a living so what would i know?

Clearly not as much as you.
Title:
Post by: bazr5gtt on 07:32, Sun 15 February 2009
yeh mate you would know straight away cos the back of the flywheel has been machined out kinda like a bowl effect :wink: well atleast it sounds like you got a good engine good luck guys 8)
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 10:29, Sun 15 February 2009
cheers guys for ya comments i am going to take it off today and get a pic and weigh it the clutch looks pretty new aswell  :wink:

tbh this engine to me looks like its had money spent on it but just not looked after like it shud be  :!:

tom the guy who got it running propearly for shaun said that there was very little to no compression in 1 of the cylinders cos he took the king lead off the aei unit and turned the car over and it sounded like 3 cylinders were the same tone and 1 was a like a high note sound and he said they must be all the same (e.g. da,da.da,de if this helps) but its out now and stripped down  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:
Title:
Post by: r5gtt08 on 16:27, Sun 15 February 2009
well i have painted the engine bay for him today and took a pic of the head for you's all to see  :wink:

but we are both pleased on how it is coming along so far and it aint had many long hours put in either, i think the longest we spent on it was the day we took the engine out and since then its just been a few hours here and there since we where waiting on parts and stuff  :wink:  :wink:

but i cant wait til its running so shaun can take it out for a good drive lol as he has only driven twice since he bought it :wink:

it did look good but the masking tape we used was proper pants as it just lifted slightly so when we peeled it off it left a jaggered like edge which wasnt meant to be there lol but me and shaun both agreed the idea was good and could easily be acheived againg with a better roll of masking tape lol

but when he seen how shiny the black was he just said i want them all black, so out came the spray gun again and i done them all again lol

Post by: 5-Mission on 21:09, Tue 21 April 2009
That bonnet should fit - they're designed to! Wouldn't it close right down you mean due to insufficiant clearance or something?

its my car thats on pistonheads matey if your interested give me a pm :wink:

That's a nice even finish on that bonnet - I take it it's fibreglass? I've got one (think it's a williams style one - don't know the exact name) and the finish is ripply as f&ck!! Don't know why I never complained at the time! :roll:  I paid about 195 new in 2001. When I took the car to the bodyshop for all the work and showed them the bonnet I said right I want that filled so it's nice and flat - they replied.. Err.. don't think so mate! So I drove it around for ages with the nice ripple effect!
Think it would be a bastard to fill out properly though..

yeah they shud fit mate but once it was all bolted on the top left edge would sit over the wing leaving a large gap on the opposite side unfortunatley,the finish is dood mate as my little bro worked his magic on it,he filled the cracks and chips aswel

Sounds like the mounts were moulded in place too far to the right?  :? - did your bro do all that work on it before you tried fitting it?How shit to find that after all that it doesn't go on! :x  :lol:  :roll:
Shouldn't be too much work it adjust your hinges and get it on I reckon?

look at the end of the fucking day you agreed to pay for the parts and it dont take more than 2 weeks to do it

but now everyone on this site know's what's happening now so lets see if you try and take the piss out of other people if they buy something off you what dont work

as for "get a grip" i will mate when you get the shell's to me and shaun by friday 1st may 2009 as that is more than enough time to go and collect them as you have metioned in a pm you have sent me so a week is more than enough
