The 'dry' build is now finished, everything has been in place so the engine bay has been stripped to tidy it up properly with a 2-pack satin black while i'm waiting for the loom to come back. There were a few holes made over the years for various developments which have been welded up.

Now to build it back up again. Photos as I go

Looks great Donald. Aren't you going to chop the front U bend and cross bar off to make it lighter and easier to fit the engine? I believe it's allowed in mod prod.

While the engine is out I thought it best to inspect inside the gearbox.

Found the centre diff bearing spigot has sheared off. There was no sign of this when I had the car out at Doune in September.

The break is conical so the diff has been supported to an extent, but has been running out of alignment and chipped the CW/P teeth . No damage to the casing or the rest of the box thankfully, but a few bearings will be replaced as it looks like debris has gone though them. I doubt this would have been noticed until the diff went so far out of alignment it contacted the casing or tore whole teeth off. Glad I checked now!

I'm looking to get the centre diff end casing made from billet to give that area more strength - it's a fairly easy part to make. The OE diffs are cast steel and quite weak, although to be fair i've not seen this part fail before.

The engine bay build continues meantime

I remember you had a mainshaft break but not a centre diff!

Good news is Samsonas have stepped up to the plate again . Can't say fairer than that

Re-reading those last posts and for the avoidance of doubt Paul had a Cusco diff break the same as my OE centre diff has done. The shaft referred to isn't a Samsonas part either

Sorry if there was confusion

I'm waiting for the billet centre diff casing to arrive before I can finish the box and get the engine/box back in. Hopefully it will be here by the weekend. The loom is a good way on now too.

I'm using the spare time to get a few other jobs done. The calipers were looking tatty so they are getting the treatment just now.

Hopefully i'll have more of an update after the weekend. The season starts in 8 weeks
