Re: Spare parts - suspension & exhaust

Same here, I've swapped both rear silencers on my previous LWB, probably 4 or 5 years ago, with mild steel ones and when I got my SWB earlier this year with its rotted rear boxes I thought I'd take the ones from the LWB instead of buying another pair. Although they were still solid on the outside(as...

Re: Spare parts - suspension & exhaust

I'd be surprised if your intermediate boxes are gone, in my experience they usually last forever. Had to fix mine recently as I hanged entire rear end on them recently and one cracked on a joint(due to rotted rear silencer) but I found they were still in excellent condition under all the surface rus...

Re: My New 3.2S

I think you'll be stuck with the X308 normal bushes, if they were available in poly, SNGBarrat would have them in stock and they dont, just checked. They are available for earlier models and would fit but the centre hole is offset on your 40 and later cars, when earlier, had it right in the middle. ...

Re: My New 3.2S

Ah yes, you did mention air compressor and impact wrench earlier. Well, if its powerfull enough and you have enough of air lines to get everywhere without trouble than that's even better as you could I suppose get a needle scaler or some sort of a sanding attachment with sandling discs that will com...

Re: My New 3.2S

Subframe however rusty it may be right now it will outlive the rest of the car for sure, it normally will just have some surface rust that can be treated without removing it completely off the car. Subframe removal is definitely a two man job, I mean technically its doable with the right prep and tr...

Re: My New 3.2S

My advice would be to get electricity in that shed first, should be nice little project. Don't bother with replacement front subframe, there's no point really and although I've never actually tried it myself I strongly suspect it will be possible to remove rear bushes with the car on the ground by s...

Re: My New 3.2S

Before you go into this extensive restoration, may I suggest doing the MOT things first, MOTing it and only then doing further work. Bearings are easy, aim is adjustable with knob at the back of the light, you'll probably need an angle grinder to get old box out and tyre is just well, tyre. Sorting ...

Re: My New 3.2S

Check voltage on the battery when it idles with a multimeter, too high and you'll get a light, too low and you'll also get a light, think Naki had to swap new alternator for another one because first one was very slightly overcharging and even though it worked fine, the light was on.

Re: Gearbox swap

Both cars should have same gearbox ZF 4HP22, I suppose its possible that some of the connectors might be slightly different but the box itself should be the same both in your 3.6 and 3.2 auto.
