Small job for the day -

Put the noise maker back on, track system taken off and put in storage...

Also took the time to change up 3 out of the 4 exhaust rubbers for performance stiff ones...









Old ones were a little soft but not to out of shape...



I didnít manage to change the 4th one as itís the only one held in by a bracket... well the bolts and nuts are 17yrs old and weíre not budging!!





Not matter how much WD40 and soaking they didnít want to let go so Iíll source a new bracket and bolts and then cut off the offending old number and replace at a later date

If you manage to find a place that supplies the bracket holding the last hanger, let me know mate. Mine is bent and twisted to hell as I had the same problem and set about beating the crap out of it until the nut gave up!

I had a spare one until about a year ago! Had to remove it for the towbar so had it sitting in the garage

To be fair, it looks a damn simple piece to fabricate if needed. Just easier if somewhere like ICP sells them cheap enough....

its a captive nut on the outside and a 14mm bolt that runs through from the centre line out over.........
you could unbolt it from the chassis and then you would have more purchase on the bench

The bolts to the chassis are fairly mullered as well

Donít suppose you supply a replacement part Alyn? Or fabricate ones?

Are you going to give it a decent coat of paint before you fit it?

Wasnít planning to as itís painted black anyway and if I slapped on thick layers of paint I didnít want to make fitting the hanger difficult and get paint in the screw thread...

Well what a faff that was!

But............

















Whilst I was under there and had the exhaust off I tried to see why it was knocking on the subframe and the rear diff bolt... shaved a bit off the subframe to stop that banging but things were not quite right...

Then I spotted this.......

Drivers side looking fine and straight...



Passenger side - not so straight!





Guess what I need to get before Germany

Glad you sorted this issue, and found the other before your ring trip. Top tip always jack the rear diff up on the scoob easy and safest place I find.

Well little job done this morning.

Tegiwa brake stopper fitted - although not the 20min job it reckoned!!

Had to remove induction cone, and boost solenoid bracket to get proper access and then the holes didnít quite line up so a bit of force needed to line everything up whilst screwing.. meant the stopper ďred buttonĒ wasnít sitting quite squarely and so screwing that in was very awkward as it wasnít going straight with the thread but itís on!

Am surprised though how much flex there still is on the cylinder when brake pedal is pushed but I guess itís got to be better than it was

It's quite scary how much the bulkhead flexes when you push hard on the brake pedal, I noticed it when I was bleeding the brakes on mine. I keep looking at them and they're all blue and I can't be doing with spraying it before I fit it.

Yeah right! No chance of that mate..

I have all the gear no idea Ian you know that

And Iíve only done exhaust hangers and brake stopper None of the other goodies will be on before the end of the year I donít think...

I donít know the ring like I do lydden and brands and tbh it terrifies me! So much traffic and cars way way way faster than me so Iím quite happy doing my tourist laps at pansy miles an hour

Besides as per previous discussions, power doesnít make up for skill and knowledge - and you have that in abundance when it comes to Germany

Don't doubt yourself! you do just fine! Brake stoppers make a surprising difference to pedal feel, I have an integral one with the strut brace, I remember fitting it at jap performance openday... I had to borrow 2x trolley jacks and drop the front suspension!!

Too kind Dave

Hoping it makes a difference - as mentioned it does still flex when I press the brake pedal but Iíll get Jules to look it over on May 11th
