A scissor lift and a dry garage? Sparky won't be able to cope with them.   Here's what you need do do:- Go to the local garden centre, get several bags of small-sized gravel. Spread it out on the fl

Headed out to my summer cottage today, a 417 km drive and I was hesitant whether to take the jagg or the SE since the SE has been giving me headaches the last 10 days. But.... I reasoned like this, if

I'll reroute the entire Nordic import supply of PG Tips to copenhagen for the duration of the event.

And less tea, no matter how hard they try.  Hopeful on the gin front though.

Anyhow, it's on!  Chris and I are now booked on flights.  We'll be travelling out Thursday evening, and staying at Kim's place for the first night.  Then off to the factory in Roskilde on Friday.  We'll be staying until Monday night for a bit of R&R after all the hard work we'll be pretending to do.

 

I've ordered 5 Gates cambelts, a multitude of aux belts, and will be ordering the tensioners from PNM tomorrow.  Bibs, I think there's one factory order to fulfil, but I'll confirm tomorrow.

 

Points to consider:

 

As previously stated, everyone is encouraged to join in and do as much work as possible to help the production line move along efficiently.  Removal of undertray, coolant, hoses etc. can all happen before we do the important bits.

 

Cooling systems to be drained outside before the car is put into position.

 

Bring coolant!

 

Bring spare jubilee clips and any other consumables you can lay your hands on, just in case.

 

Belt tension will be done with a Krikit, followed by Speedy Spectrum on my phone.

 

Does anyone have a timing light?  I can bring one, but if there's something local it saves me carrying it.

 

Axle stands are mandatory if we are to do any cars in parallel.  I don't work under jacks!

 

I shall endeavour to provide you individually with parts costs before I arrive.  Payment preferred in GBP!

 

Crankshaft pulleys - if they're tight, we need PlusGas or equivalent, bits of wood, club hammer, puller, dynamite etc.

 

I tend not to drink alcohol whilst working, but I'll make up for it later.

 

I'm sure there's more; I'll think about it...

One more important item - a press, or a BIG vice, for the tensioner bearings.  I've already told Kim; hopefully at least one person can provide a solution?

Parts update:  plenty of supply issues at the moment!  The factory is out of belts, and tensioner supply (good ones) has become a serious issue.  However, I've managed to secure enough Gates cam/aux belts, and I have PNM's last stock of tensioners on the way.  So, good for the CPH trip, but I'll be scrabbling around trying to sort out the rest of July!

 

Jacques, hoping you're OK with a Gates 5206.  Believe me, it's absolutely fine.

I am ready with coolant, demineralized Water, oil, general tools, a few hose clips etc.

Sparky, it's okay with the belt. I hope we will have the good tensioners !!!

 

Cheers,

Jacques.
