Run it with one over rider, odd but may look cool in a ratty way...until of course you change the exhaust again which prob won't be too long Wink

Looking good. Just 're-shape' the bottom of the over-rider with a trusty hammer so it clears the tailpipe. Will it be ready for next meet?

No mate, I need some longer studs for the front adaptors and need to get the back end down again so it rides level.
Bit annoyed really as I really wanted it ready for Wednesday night but it wasn't to be.

I didn't offer it up. I have an awning now, so if not I'll just sell the towbar on.

Oh FFS!!! No

Went to sort the wheels this afternoon, but hit a bit of a problem. The front wheels didn't want to sit on the hubs properly. Initially I thought it was just down to needing longer studs as the thickness of the wheels was greater. Had another look and then decided it was the outer lip of the dust cap fouling with the bore dia in the centre of the wheel, so it was a quick dash up to Nomates Engineering Inc to have a little 'tweak'.
If you look here you can see on the dustcaps where they were fouling with bearing retainer when the wheel bolts were tightened up.


And you can see where the centre bore of the wheel was pushing on the outer dia of the dustcap.


Nomates put 5 or 6 spots of weld inside the cap as the caps are thick pressing and if we turned the shoulder down too much it would have seperated into 2 peices.


he then turned down the shoulder a tad,


and then also put a chamfer on there too,


Then it was back to mine to try them, but still wasn't sitting right.
Had to then take William to footie training but got back out there when we got back.

Initially I thought it was just the welds fouling and popped back up to NEI to get the welds turned down a little, however Steve had other ideas and came down to aid the investigation.

Upon trying again we could see that the hole in the centre of the wheel isn't large enough to fit over the hub centre properly, however, if I get the wheels bored out so it does fit against the hub then the wheel won't clear the bloody brake caliper.
It's a split screen front beam on there with a 944 brake conversion, not 100% of the details though so I've just had to drop T2D a shout.


The adaptor/spacer is pretty wide, not sure (yet) if it just a spacer or a 113 to 130 adaptor


I can see the adaptor plate here for the Porsche caliper.


Not sure what my next option is, might be as simple a different adaptor, or maybe change the calipers, or maybe go back to stock Bay discs or even drums and then run adaptors.

I will see what T2D say tomorrow....... Unfortunately I don't think it will be taking Superdry to Sandown Park now. Gutted, just hope I can get it sorted for CTTP.

I've also just sent an email to Java as I spoke to them this afternoon and they said they had modified a set of wheels for someone running 944 brakes, he didn't say on what vehicle though.
Let's hope the fix is a) reasonably quick and easy and also b) not too pricey!

they are definately adaptors .....as there is no strain (apart from what is normal)on the wheel studs .....spacers would need longer wheel studs ....making the whole assembly weaker

also you may need new dust caps ......no matter how much I remove the tack welds for clearance ,the center scrubbing marks will still hit ...(the inner circle) ....I think when you sandwiched the dust caps between the wheel and the hub ,they got flatter ......unless you want me to tey and heat them up and force them back out



this photo shows what i'm talking about ....the welds are nowhere near ,and the damage /scrubbing was done before I welded them or machiened them

Only one thing left to do Scoops.... Return it all back to stock... Stock beam, stock brakes, stock wheels, stock suspension....

That'll get you up and running! tongue

There's more chance of you munching me off than that happening.
I 'think' it will be an easy fix if I can find a caliper that isn't as wide.
Change the adapter and off we trot...
