    While the box is out, replace the rear main seal. I made that mistake on one of my cars, the fucker leaked almost straight away

    All finished
  6. Bigfoots Sigma Wagon

    All done but, not without issues. Noticed smoke from under the bonnet, pulled over and saw this: Oil pouring from the rocker cover gasket. Got it home and pulled the cover to find this When I put the cover on, the gasket moved and pinched. Car goes way better than it did with the old motor and doesn't smoke. Not bad for my first full engine rebuild

    I mean the jetting might be too big, the mounting is possibly the same. I'l bring one to next burger meet. Sounds like the issue with your engine might be more related to it being a mitsi engine built to korean tolerances on a british chassis

    It might be a bit big for your 1.6, I can sell you a carb though, or a complete engine.

    Gave the engine bay a quick clean and swapped the crossmember for one that wasn't bashed up by the road and the painted, unbent one fitted

    Its been a busy few months Did some driving Bought a 2nd hand engine with the intention of giving it a rebuild and found this: the previous owner said the engine had been sitting outside under a tarp for 6 months. The rust cleaned up beautifully with a hone and there was no other signs of bhg Short block assembled and painted red to make it go faster Engine ready to go. With shiney rocker cover and manifold courtesy of @Mr Vapour making the rest of my engine look shit

    I might be freeish this sunday, depending on how engine swap on the daily goes. Next weekend is out for me cos I'm working at v8 taxis
  14. As far as I know, all the input shafts are the same. Tail housings and output shafts are different. I will test that theory tomorow night, I have one of each box in my shed
