Going to drop the oil , remove the sump and hope like hell nothing hasnt kaput.

The knocking is probably down to the low oil situation before mate..

I am with Brigsy on this matey, damage has already been done :(

Technically its now knocking its fucking tits off.

I swear down its the box / clutch / flywheel tho. It really sounds like its coming from there ..

Sounds like something metallic sloshing around ...

Been fiddling with the car and sealed a few air leaks + tightened all boost pipes up.

It goes like stink.

Knocking like mad tho at 2k and 3k revs only. I swear something is caught on the box ...

you need to turn the actual drive-gear CLOCKWISE to remove it from the teeth in the cam, once its free you can wiggle it out with pliers

cue a crafty edit by me ..

Get a large flat head screwdriver. Or a pair of needle nose pliers.

Twist the dizzy gear clockwise. It will come up and away from the body.

Check voltages at key points. That will tell you where the leccies have failed.

I got bored.

I have done some carb jet drilling ( I ignored all advice of do small increments and went LARGE straight away ! :) )

I also bought a nice big t28.

Now running 18psi till I can get it checked for knock. Then I think I will turn the boost upto 11.

Also fitted a FMIC

Engine had a death rattle , but due to low oil. Filled it back up and now its quiet.

I now have the shakes on idle. I think the rear engine mount is goosed.

Ill change it.

How can I still love a car that causes so much heartache ?
