Want more boost?!
Customer supplied this kit which included the shorter drive belt. The replacement reduction drive pulley has a chuck style locking mechanism allowing it to be fitted in place, however no room for conventional pullers to get the old pulley off. Quite a lot of work required to strip back and lift the engine to a height to fit the Cravenspeed pulley puller…..
Clever little tool, likely only suitable for this job unlike the various multi fit tools out there. Couldn’t do the job without it though.
Below, used the old belt to hold the new pulley in place while locating and tightening into position. An old technique for a new job and it work, not recommended on a new belt!! This is the old and now redundant belt (Phew)..
Ummmm, looks worse that is really is, bonnet up, guard liner folded away, super charger down there somewhere!!
Newly serviced DSG, ready to rock and roll!!
So 2018 has been an exciting time for us, our previous ‘brand’ licence came to a close in April. We have had a busy 6 months tidying up some of the entrance way and rooms on the southern side of the workshop, still a work in progress. We have also had on offer the possibility to take on some more real estate within our current building (areas used as storage by the previous owner of the building and business).
This deal has now been done and the timing couldn’t have been better. We’ve gained some valuable floor space as well as two mezzanines. Looking forward to moving into these areas and continue with the clean up/organizing.
May 1st is getting close, areas been cleared out so we can start to move in, I can see a wall coming down and an extra hoist going in!!!
Old car, New look. Had three of these BMW’s, just cant say goodbye to this one……
Left in charge to 2 classics and some engines, not a bad view for us car guys….
I think the wall has to go!!!
Great view this morning getting to work, This ones getting a water pump with some help from Autosure. Pays to have a warranty.. Getting the S-tronic adaptations done while its in too.
Warranty to the rescue. Engine had horrendous clatter on start up. Required a modification to the oil supply for the variators. Variators were replaced and modifications were completed in the USA. Nice to have it up and running again
This car was in a bit of a state, wish we had grabbed some before pics, end result speaks for itself though.
Interior exterior detail, huge effort put into this car to bring it back to life..
