This is a fantastic thread. I doff my hat to you!

Do you happen to know how much the engine lid and ancillaries (spoiler, motor etc) weigh? Thanks.

Just sent you a Whatsapp from a service manual. If that doesn't help, a grown up will be along shortly, I'm sure.

Do you mean the olives Trev?
Depends whether they are Bishcoff or Gillet, can't remember which way round it is one uses them the other doesn't
A bit like Round heads and Cavaliers.
They are interchangeable apart from header/cat flange.

That's them John, I have two that I obviously took from the car when dismantling however I cannot fathom where they're used in my new set-up. I'm running Gillet mufflers and tips.

I've dug up this thread from a while back that appears to discuss a similar topic:

http://www.911uk.com/viewtopic.php?t=113473&sid=2c4a6dff90ccb151f1ed50194f723fb4

It suggests that I don't need the olives as the Gillets already have that built into them. That would make sense from what I'm seeing whilst building it up however I'm confused as to where they were used on my car in the past, I've replaced like for like so confused.com:?:

Pretty good thread that one. Perhaps the new RSRs are Gillet and the old were Bischoff. When I sent Gert my old old Bischoffs he sent me Gillets back a minor weight saving but it all counts. I loved my old RSRs but a tail pipe fell off and melted rear pu with the hot exhaust gases, an expensive trip.
The tone of the Fabspeed cans currently fitted is a lot deeper the the RSRs and slightly louder, interestingly no provision for heat shields.

Managed to fit the Golden rod and RS SSK now after purchasing new shims for the mechanism below, shift does feel great, sat in the garage it does anyways Smile



Bought a new bonnet badge and Targa logo for rear, mostly because everything else was new but I'm glad I did the bonnet badge has seen better days, I did wonder if there was anyone out there that could revive it?.



Also had a bunch of bits zinc plated to help bring up the engine bay, used Karas in Leigh, they did a great job:



Here are the pulleys installed:



This is going to Jack at Royals for a refurb:

I'm collecting a few bits for replating those look good and on my doorstep.
May I recommend 91160312701 for the altenator nut.
Have you considered a black wheel with blue piping?

So I've moved to the front of the car now which to be honest is a little frustrating in that it was nice to deal with all the new stuff at the rear to now come to the front and be faced with dirt and grime again.

I had some slight damage on the offside front to the Oil cooler hanger and strut so these will be replaced. Oil cooler fan resister was shot:



Promptly replaced:



As you can see it's all pretty grimey in there and oddly enough I seem to have a wheel hub stud that is a 45mm and the others are all 52, I think someone has replaced one with the wrong spec bolt, naughty, so that will have to be pressed out of the carrier. The cups that the spring sits in were pretty rusty so I've given them a good wire brushing a painted them.



Pulling the kit together for coiler build, problem is the top nut requires a 22mm spanner that is super deep to reach within the mount, it has to be a spanner as you require an alan down the centre to hold the strut itself from turning, argh!!:



Luckily when i checked the front wishbone bushes they had been replaced with Superpro poly items so i'm going to leave these in place, I've removed the ball joints as they were super rusty, new ones on the way.

They look a bit better now:



Weekend should see me building up the offside front once I've been and emptied my wallet at OPC Bolton, again!!.
