Unbelievable mate. Well done on the rescue effort. Hopefully someone knows who the youths were.

im not holding my breath tbh police didnt bother coming out they never do where i live, will just be given a crime number and the case will be closed in 7 days as is their usual procedure

Sorry to hear about that. 

 

There's something I've been wondering about for a while over whether or not a magnetic clutch from a air con pump would line up properly if everything was machined so it could be fitted to the power steering pump.  It would be handy to turn it on and off for more precise steering feel and might even save a quid or two on a long journey.

 

Anyway I'd like to ask if you could take a photo showing both pumps from the same angle as this pic?

Refurbished the AC pulley and crank pulley so they're back on all I need now is the new alternator and can get the belt on then it's time to work on the injector wiring and finding somewhere to put the coil pack

Thank for that.  The Engine is looking great by the way.  I really like the little touches like the anodised bolts for the cam cover.

It is a bit obsessive lol thinking of the best looking way to attach things the anodised bolts were a pain wrapping my Allen keys in paper so as to not chip the anodising off

Aux belt fitted after 3-4 attempts of remembering how it went just to get the looms back on and it's finished and time to move on to cleaning and painting the gearbox
