Drilled the holes and beat the bulkhead flat to allow the VR6 Clutch master cylinder to fit to pedal box

Also made a start stripping the accident damaged engine to see how badly damaged it was! Turns out its way more foobared than i thought! Shocked Sad

Top part of Inlet manifold



Lower part of Inlet Manifold



Vibratech Solid front engine mount



And.....................

Block cracked




But wait, theres more.................

Oil Filter housing



Also water pump pulley and shaft are buckled so need to buy new ones, the rear gearbox mount is cracked off, the studs have sheered on the Exhaust manifold and downpipe, and also the Alternator and tensioner pulley are smashed off.

Im sure theres prob better ways and easier ways of doing the VR swap but im kinda learning as i go along. Best thing to do is not be scared and get on with it. Whats the worse that can happen?! Laughing

Ok, Sump is off, and all broken parts are also off engine. Ordered new replacement parts.

Also rubbed down and painted Radiator support bar, and front cross member and fitted them along with the Custom made front Solid Engine mount to allow engine to sit lower (so bonnet will close) and also reduce engine movement,



Also got delivery of these adjustable coilovers yesterday



Fitted Brake fluid resevoir and topped up with fluid for now just to stop rubber seals from drying out.

Finished fitting VR6 pedal box and fitted pedals. (what a bitch of a job!!!) affraid

Started to rebuild the smashed Engine Block!

Left this to my expert old man to weld this up as i want it done properly 1st time! Very Happy

The Gap missing from my block! Shocked Crying or Very sad Sad



Used gas torch to burn all the crap off the area needing welding
(The orical himself! lol)

Moi





Then the hard bit.... welding inside the block Wink





Once its cooled down over night (cast needs to cool slowly) thenm tommorow i will Braze it with Brass to make it double as hard then wash out all the Crank area with Parofine, make sure its all gleaming and no swarf etc left inside. Repair Sump, refit then rub engine down with wire wool and paint it black.

Decided there just wasnt enough room to play around between the pulley and chassis leg



So... out came the engine AGAIN
I marked up where abouts i needed to cut the chassis leg



Then cut top and bottom



Re-fabricated chassis leg and re-welded




Gave me an inch more gap to play around with Cool



Also hand polished upper part of inlet manifold by hours of wet and dry. Eventually came up well and painted detailed areas matt black
