Zetec Sump is nearly done still got a bit more tweaking with the pickup pipe

The inboard suspension has the capability of providing a rising rate suspension, whilst outboard inclined shocks suffer from a decreasing rate (as the front suspension compresses, the softer it becomes).

Very interesting.  I'm planning a Nodiz install on a Zetec and I've also been researching the RX8 gearbox to Zetec.  The gearbox receives rave reviews from most forums and opens up the option of previously avoided, inexpensive and plentiful diff ratios (3.77).  The major difference with my set up will be the bike carbs and manifold.

Shame I can't see the pictures on a work computer.

Alas sean I fear that the rx8 box wont fit a quick measure up reveals the furys tunnel to be 7inches and the rx8 box is about 9 1/2 . I will actually try the box in the tunnel tommorow as im not averse to moving the engine slightly forward butI do have a limit as to what will be aacceptable.

Nodiz arrived yesterday looks very well made so first impressions are good

Unfortunately I'm displaced from the chassis so can't compare measurements. It does seem to fit most sevenesque cars, so I remain hopeful. Nodiz are usually good for a group buy and I will need 3 when I return.

A busy few days with Fury.
Bad news ref the RX8 Box I wont be able to get it in unless I make some modifications to the transmission tunnel as its far to narrow.
Good news on the Type 9 though. At some point somebody has had the tail housing off the back of the gearbox and not lined up the centralising spring pivot when refitting the tail housing. I have and it works ace so that's the gearbox sorted and its cost me nothing but a couple of hours of messing and getting covered in 75w90 (so stinking like cat piss all day)

Sumps done picture shows the difference between standard and modified.





I also had to make the O/S engine mount as the one of the CVH was just to different to be worth messing with

Nodiz looks a quality bit of kit. Obviously not on the car yet but the reviews I have read have all been positive! There are a couple of negative ones but they were more aimed at the company selling them than the product it also seems that some people we're on a personal agenda

well the Zetec is in a bit of fettling required with the engine height. (The Cvh was mounted high) I reckon I can drop the Zetec by about 30mm.

The September AFRC race will be a dedicated race rather than grouped in with the Roadsports, so we will all be in together.

I think it would be wise to wait and see the grid number before entering last minute? Saying that hopefully we could have a scrap if Ian manages to hold you up Very Happy

Since MG Live and the disparity between Ian's times and my times, I have been putting a lot of thought and investigation into the Mk2 and have concluded that the front springs are too soft. They have now been increased from 175 lbs" to 225 lbs " so I am now desperate to try out the car and see what the difference is. It may be better, or I may have completely overdone it!!!

Got the Zetec running for the first time last night. Doesnt run to bad just need to balance the carbs and set up the idle mixture. Also found a small oil leak from where the cast alloy part of the sump bolts up to the block.

I still have the Quaife diff to fit which I reckon will be bank holiday monday rolling road is booked for the 7th September

Well a frustrating weekend Evil or Very Mad after the initial startup my plans yesterday were to getthe carbs balanced and reseal the rear edge of the sump. Sump reseal went well and moved onto the carb balance I noticed that once the engine was warm it was a bit smoky. Utterley pissed off I gave up and decieded to go through the drill this morning. Head gasket tester first the proved to be a negative so I removed the spark plugs. The plugs from cylinder one and two were soaked in oil I removed the inlet and exhaust manifolds and found the ports on these two cylinders again saturated in oil. Left with no choice I pulled off the cylinder head and can feel noticeable play in the valve guides on the Exhaust side of the head Crying or Very sad

Given the cost of these engine its rendered this one scrap there is no point messing around having the head sorted I may as well find another engine and drop it in. Unfortunatley that means im going to have to pull my entry fo Snett.

Not to Bitter as this is the chance you take with £100 engines some you win and some you lose.

Bad luck mate, on ward and upward. Are you going for another 2lt engine or have you considered an 1800, there is a big group of 1800's in in sports specials.

I was battling with some of the 1800's so they are simular pace, engines are a lot more easy to come buy as well.

I have driven both and I love the punch of torque that the 2 litre has. don't get me wrong the 1800 revs well but you know how it is Twisted Evil

I think I may have obtained an ST170 motor but TBC
