while she's awaiting her NEW engine :roll: :roll:

thought i would take the time to add some more tweeks


first off is a little mod,for adding a 'Grease Nipple' to the diff case
in the MCD it has the full sealed diffs,front an rear
an to grease the teeth it means stripping the whole thing in bits

so i thought to keep it nice an smooth i would do a little 'Mod'

i bought some grease nipples of ebay,with a 45 degree angle



an then stripped the car down to get at the diff case




drilled a tapped a hole,an threaded in the grease nipple


so now when i want to add a nice little drop of grease,its easy to do :D



next was to upgrade the standard springs




to KCR Balloon springs,front an rear





next on the list was to replace my nice flash GLASS filter,that i,,,,,,,broke :shock: :roll: :roll:

(i changed my fuel lines,an while doing so it rolled off my table,an cracked lol)

so got this




an lastly

a small mod for my tank lid breather
used to have it running behind the tank


but now ive made a little holder,in the form of a 'GAS LIGHTER FLUID' adaptor,that you get on the lids,with the can,that i use for my gas soldering iron






JOBS A GOOD UN cheers cheers cheers :D :D :D

I am a bit simple, but what is the idea of the balloon springs, are they like dual rate?

Oh, and I like your nipples.

yes mate in a simular way to duel rate

what they do is give you a larger amout of spring in a smaller amount of space

an are tighter wound at the ends,than in the centre,so at small bumps,they are stuff,an hold it very level
large bumps allow greater use of the spring,which is soaked up by the larger area of sprung metal,soaking up harder bumps with ease
