OK well where do i start since the rolling road

Tappets got really noisy, so aroudn 600 miles on the engine thought a reset tappets and fix the poxy rocker cover leaky fibre washers would be good

So stripped it all down started to adjust and then thinks why is the cylinder 2 rocker shaft bolt moving grabed the bolt and it pulled straight without any effort

The threads stripped out completely which i can only think back to when i missed and gear and over rev'd it alot

So i helicoiled and put a new bolt in job done i thought?...... nope turning both cylinder 2 push rods they have a very slightly bend in them

So adjusted it up for now and the engine still idles sweet and drives smooth.

Forward on a few weeks of the car being garaged up not being drive to today..
The day before i go to modified live at brands hatch....thinking i could get a 20 mins session with the 5

So got to work all good no leaks

Drive home was great, driving it quite quickly on the motorway overtaking and listening to radio 1 loudly... slow down for my slip road

WTF is that noise... sounded like a grrrrrrrrr, so change into 4th and noise gone change back into 5th and grrrrrrrr

Still got drive in 5th so thought maybe the nut had worked loose

Got home jacked it up f1 pit crew styley

Within 10 mins the cover was off and foudn the problem, it soon came clear that I wont be taking the 5 to brands hatch tomorrow or being able to drive through dartford tunnel on the way home

5th gear nut is tight but 5th gear is missing a few teeth look in the cover and found the teeth and some needle rollers from a bearing in there

Also what is this part? as it looks pretty battered

it was loose inside this shaft

Now the count down begins as the car is booked for snetterton track day taster on the 24th of july

So i need to get a gearbox in for that as a temp fix or swap 5th gear over and hope the rest of the box is fine or find a good refurbed box to put in

sounds like normal stuff

you'll need a new track rod end and then you will need wheel alignment as it will be out after the end is changed

handbrake.... possibly just a new set of cables or adjusting up

could you not disconnect the ht king lead and crack it over till you see which hole the oil comes out of to be 100% sure?

i think someone else managed to get one for less than 80 but since renault dont stock them anymore then you need to find a very good local motor factors that can source these things

iirc cgb sell them for like 130 odd.

try gt turbo spares, mike is a great guy to deal with he may have a good one or a new one forsale :D

any way of cutting the pipe and sliding on a piece of rubber hose with a couple of jubilee clips to cover the corroded part?

Rolling road video ... r_embedded

Print outs.

Flywheel power and torque 133.6bhp and 166.7ftlb

Wheel power and torque 109.5bhp and 136.6ftlb

Should be much better and less of a spike of power when i've changed to a better boost controller rather than the bleed valve i had kicking about and used in a rush   :lol:
