    mental week, not able to get much done sadly. Fitted the new starter motor I also decided to debaffle the turbo outlet (charge pipe). Theres no performance gain to be had, just sounds better

    I Had a few hours on Saturday while the boys were at their nannas for lunch so i built the crane up, wheeled the car out and got busy First job was disconnecting the driveshafts and getting those off. For anyone wondering, you need to have the wheels off and undo the lower suspension bolts, then you will have enough room to slip them out. Out with the old box... ewww..grotty On goes the new box Time for the bay to get some more TLC Checked the turbo over and its got Zero play, happy days! i did come across an issue when removing the TIP that theres a rubber O-Ring that seals it onto the Turbo, that has split.. so now i'm just tempted to change it to a Silicon TIP. i'll see how much the o-ring is first

    Finished grinding off all the oxidisation from the box on the weekend and sprayed it down again with some aluminium treatment to ready it for paint tonight. Swapped over the gear change mechanism to the ball style from my current box. Drained the oil in order to check for contaminants and for peace of mind, always worth a swap because its likely never been changed.... gear oil was very clear so that's a good sign. I'll probably change the end plate seal too as although it seems good, its been exposed to elements and i don't fancy having to change it once on the car again

    decided on black enamel paint, should give it some protection and look nice and tidy, i hate the bright silver look that i see on other painted box's, black should just hide away a bit
  14. So i'm cleaning up a gearbox to fit to the golf, i've de-greased it all and am now working on just cleaning up some of the oxidisation. I was thinking of just lacquering the box to add some protection to it but just wondering if that would work or not? i've done a couple of engine compartment items and baked those parts but obviously a gearbox i cannot bake! am i just better leaving the gearbox bare and clean?
