    Coming along very well Wales - Oil pan looks great! Is the welding still being done with your mig? Just occurred to me that the shift fork might also need some beefing up as the new clutch likely has a much higher clamping force and may stress it some more. I've seen and heard the shift fork arm cracking - but shouldn't be too hard to reinforce. Rabin

    Last weekend I fitted the oil filter re-location flange and had a first look at the new clutch release bearing. I need to change the bearing, since the clutch is meant for 50 mm OD bearing and the stock is 45 mm. I tested it with the old one, but it will cause problems since the clutch “nails” are too short for it, i.e. the clutch bearing could get stuck. I also managed to continue the oil sump. It is almost ready, I just need to test fit it to the engine with the dry sump pump to ensure the proper lining of the pump. Then I need to TIG weld the rest of the seams of the sump from the inside also. Then I’ll make the suction points for the scavenge and cut out the excessive parts off the dry sump pump fitting plate. I’ll try to work out the summary next, I think I did overthink it too much... -Wales
  7. Whipped the Kugelfischer injection pump and head off today. I'll bring the pump with me to Britain next week for calibration and new seals, and the head seems good with no fine cracks between valve seats, although I have a new one to use. The liners have a nearly undetectable lip at the top so could be reused, but won't be, because I have new ones.

    steering assist pump

    Yes that's it, remove bracket and studs then thread in 2 bolts. Lay the pump on edge face down preferably on 2 blocks of wood and tap on the 2 bolts and out it comes. Thanks Bean.
  13. Here's a picture of an ATE caliper: ATEs have the cross-shaped hardware that you can see inside of the caliper above. I can't find any pictures of a Bendix caliper, but I know they have the word 'Bendix' cast into the metal of the caliper itself. My '87 STI has Bendix calipers, but I don't know when the changeover was.

  15. I was driving to the city yesterday, and noticed mid route that my instrument cluster brake light was on. I remember seeing a disconnected brake pads sensor when rotating my front tires. I pulled over at the closest gas station, reached up where the cable was zip tied to the brake hose. Sure enough it was loose, and possibly touching the chassis. Obviously this completed the circuit, possibly causing my indicator. allowing it to hang near the LCA, seems to have resolved the light, but isn’t at all a good long term solution. Now I need to secure the wire better, or better yet, attempt to reattach it to the brake pad. maybe I should replace the front brake pads? But the question now is if my 86 xn6 Sti calipers are bendix or ATE.
  16. Thanks JoE! If you send them to me I can make sure to post them in the tech section. Rabin

    505 electromagnetic fan

    I'd get a new rad temp sensor as well, and make sure the power source wire to the rad temp sensor / switch is fused (ie: Add a fuse). Power wire for fan has caused a few wiring harnesses to burn up when the wire has shorted out. Rabin

    steering assist pump

    Pretty sure you have to remove the mounting points from back of the pump, and then the tank comes off. Rabin
  19. Is there a drive gear aspect on the transmission end which in prone to failure?

    505 electromagnetic fan

    Ok i adjusted the air gap on clutch fan to .3mm, got the engine up to just over the half way point on the temp gauge and did a manual contact with wire from rad. temp sensor taped to a thin rod and made contact with the copper area at back of the water pump pulley (yeah i know a bit risky) and it works fine. So am now encouraged to buy the carbon brush & spring set up instead of a full on electrical fan. Space will be kinda tight with the water pump pulley protruding out.
  21. My power steering pump is leaking badly. Last time i took apart one was 15yrs ago and i know for sure there is a large O-ring seal sandwiched between circumference of inner body and top part of pump which sit's in a groove of top section. Thing is i can't remember how i manage to separate the top section with shaft/bearing & pulley from the pan like body. Has anybody done this in recent times? Will appreciate any tips so i don't end up mucking up too much of it. Sadly i gave away all my extra pumps .
  22. Thank you to all who took the time to reply. I have followed the links, downloaded the PDFs and OCRd those that weren't. I've also extracted to separate files individual pages related to XD3T Injection pumps, and translated those pages to English and recombined them to single PDFs. These English pages lack the figures of the original French and Spanish pages, but together sense can be made of them. If anyone would like the OCRd files and the translated files I'd be happy to send them along. Thank you again.......JoE

    Nice choose, on the turbocharger, those Gen2 are amazing, the response and the spool up times are so quick, on a good tune feels like a v8 no turbo lag at all. Keep up the good work.

    Hi, There are not really issues with the changing engine direction, although the oil pan design is a bit tricky since there is not much room between the engine and the subframe. Also, you can't raise the engine in the engine bay since there is not much room between the engine and the hood either. I used this bracket to align the input shaft to the engine: The input shaft was supported by the crankshaft's bearing and I also lightened the weight of the gearbox with a cargo strap hooked from the engine crane. Then I welded the flange to bellhousing wherever they matched each other close enough, after this, I removed the gearbox from the bracket to be modified where needed. I hope that I managed to write this process in a way that it does explain it. About the welding, yes, I have heard, mainly from older people, that you can't weld aluminum without a spool gun. That was the main reason why I was so surprised that I didn't have any problems using the spoolless gun. The welding machine I am using is Kemppi MinarcMig EVO 200, and it has ready programs for mild, stainless, aluminum and CuSi brazing. I only changed the inner welding wire tubing from the default metal spiral to a Teflon one. The welding wire didn’t get stuck at all. As for protective gas I had to use Argon. I found out that the basic metal saw, a cordless hack saw and the angle grinder with a 1 mm cutting disc works out nicely for cutting. I also used the 2 mm cutting discs meant for aluminum, but I found out that they work out nicely on the cast aluminum. With a new aluminum sheet, the aluminum cutting disc is slow and it heats the sheet a lot. As for shaping the aluminum, my choice is this kind of tool for pneumatic straight grinder, since it is really fast, and it doesn’t get clogged: Its the same they use on milling machines. Hi, I have read your topic, really cool build indeed! I think the using the same gearbox as you did, is one suitable option. For the turbocharger, I have got my eyes on Garrett GTX3076R Gen2… Expensive, but it would be the frosting on the cake… -Wales

    I'm late as usual to say, a very interesting project, have you considered using a Opel Omega 2,5td gearbox, like i did. What turbocharger are you planning to use.
  27. "If you have the means..." as they say: https://www.performancediesel.ca/performance.htm The guy that did mine isn't doing them anymore, but Giles is known worldwide for his Bosch VE builds. With the better exchange rate I'd highly recommend him for the IP and injector rebuilds. Rabin

    Questions: How did you align the transmission input shaft with the crankshaft in order to weld the new flange onto the belhousing? And are you using a spool gun to weld the aluminum? It looks amazing and I'm shocked at how well the mig is welding it! I wanted to weld up changes to the N9TE intake manifold and your set up would be ideal for that as well. Lastly - what is your tool of choice for cutting and shaping the aluminum? I tried a reciprocating saw for cast alloy intake but it was very slow going. Rabin

    It was done more than once for the XUD, even with a BA/7 gearbox. For the engine tilt 18,5° was possible with DW10 oil pump and sump, there is also the Peugeot J5 / Citroën C25 with a XUD9A engine that was at best straight if not slightly leaning forward.
