^ looks grand on the cookie cutters!

Gaz, remind me about the piston angle again?

I'll check on the water pump make, it was £150 from ECP, got it for £100 using the Xmas discount code, don't know how good it'll be but it has the metal impella.

Ian,

if you open the link there is a good explanation of how the piston has to sit at a certain angle relative to the cut out on the top of the piston

Got everything back together and filled up with coolant. To be honest I wasn't expecting the very bad vibration at idle to be eradicated fully as I've had a couple in the past with the same simptoms.
Well I'm very happy to report she idles like a rock now with vertually no vibration. I think the problem lies with the balance belt sprockets. To simplify things if the bottom sprocket is fitted the same as the top sprocket it will be 180 degrees out of balance. The top sprocket is fitted with the 'o' mark to the top and the bottom sprocket with the '0' fitted to the bottom.

Back together




The wipers have always been painfully slow so I removed the wiper motor. This was very easy to remove, took me about 5 mins.




I stripped the motor and gave it a good clean and lubricated the moving parts. They work perfectly now so bring it on rain!

I noticed a bit of oil in the air filter box so after a bit of research it seem the seals have gone on the AOS, air oil separator. Luckily this is a cheap easy fix but it's located under the inlet manifold so I'm going to have to remove it for access. I think I'll let the weather warm up a bit befor I sort this

Gaz, I moved the car yesterday when she was really cold and I've still got a bit of vibration but only for around a minuite or less then she quickly calms down and idles really well. Might be old age plus I haven't got the boot carpet fitted so that might be a factor, anyway I might just have to live with it. I'll keep you informed.

Still a million times better than it was though.

Good stuff Ian I cant keep up with you at the minute jumping from car to car !I have also got a new pair of engine mounts to put on although like yours didn't think the old ones looked to bad,at the end of the day its a 30 year old motor you could chuck a heap of money at it to resolve every little niggle think I`m up to about a grand on bits and pieces which does include new seats and front suspension to be fair its sounds as though you have got it running sweet enough.

Ok quick update to keep everything up to date!

Every time I start this car the heater blower squeaks like a mouse, it's very annoying!
So I removed the plastic cover and removed this -



From hear -



A bit of oil and a clean and it's nice and quiet now.

Next I removed and refurbed the rear brakes, cleaned with a wire brush in the drill and given a coat of cure rust then a good few coats of black gloss hammeright. Put back together with new seals and dust covers, good as new.

Looking sad.



Cleaned up and ready to go back together.








Replaced the rear anti roll rubbers and brackets.



Snapped on though!





Tried to weld a nut onto the snapped stud but failed so I ended up drilling the bolt out and used a new nut and bolt instead. Messed around with the welder for about an hour and ended up drilling it out in about 5 mins! It's always the easy things that waste all your time frustrated

Made up a little petrol bath to clean all the oil out of the air oil separator and pipes. Replaced seals and put it all back together.



Gave the throttle body a good clean aswel.



After doing the belts a had a noise like one of the belts rubbing on the cover when I pressed the accelerator. I ended up removing the cover and tightening up the ballance belt slightly. That seems to have sorted the noise and the engine vibrations at idle touch wood!

Been waiting for my GAZ coil overs for 6 weeks now, hopefully they'll be on there way soon Confused

bye

Looking good Ian, but couldn't you treat yourself to some new bleed nipples puh

Keith,
DO NOT jetwash your engine! PLEASE......they don't like getting real wet.

Any recommendations then Chief ? , I did my red car covering the distributor and air intake blasting low down with the nozzle and it was ok , the thing that worries me is some electrical cables (The sleeves) are open ended and water in them isn't good either !... ive been on a long drive up to Aberdeen and the engine is noticeable salty, the rest of the car has had a major clean just want to sort the engine bay , steam ??? Thumb sorry for the hijack Ian

Kieth,
To me it's a bit like 'Don't put anything in your ear smaller than your elbow'
I would suggest WD40 and a cloth. For the oily bits underneath I use a squirt of brake cleaner and a cloth......

Ian, sorry for the hijack bye

Chief, unlike you I can stick to a budget, I calculated two new nipples would push the spend to high!
There was someone in America selling a full steel flared arch kit cut off another 914 for $250 and $100 shipping, seemed like a good deal?

Keith, stop farting about and just reverse into the Tyne, that'll rinse the salt off! I'm sure it'll be fine Thumb

Keith - get yourself some spray on degreaser (like autoglym engine cleaner) and some brushes (not your painting ones!) and cloths. It'll do the job Smile

Ian - cracking work sorting those jobs. I'm off for a petrol bath myself...

Another update, I've been grabbing every spare minuite to either fix something or remove something on the car over the last two weekends.

First thing was to strip out all of this nonsense! Some sort of old alarm.



Then I painted the servo, it was really tatty but cleaned up ok, with it painted I could refit everything, fill with fluid and bleed the brakes. It's good to have brakes, when I put it down the side of the house I keep reaching down the wrong side for the handbrake!



At long last the new Gaz suspension turned up.

Rears are a bit of an improvement!



Fronts are coilovers but they haven't got the brackets for the sensor and brake hose! Not happy about it but looks like I'm going to have to get inventive with the cable ties.



Oh and got a bit bored and stripped everything off it, I have to say it practically fell apart compared to the 928! I bet I got everything off the 944 in one shift, I think the only problem I had was with the retaining screws for the front side lights and indicators.



In the above picture you can see the rot! It's only got issues on this rear quarter, the rest of the car is tottaly as new metal wise!

New metal will be made to repair this.



I have a good rear quarter from a donor car to completely replace this



And this!



I'm not a 100% sure why it's gone so bad around the light? Maybe the light has beeen leaking, it was glued in with really hard sealer of some sort, even the little nut that hold the light in were rusty, other sides perfect. Anyway it'll all be cut out thumbsup

It's nearly there mechanically, off the top of my head I just need to replace the fuel lines, replace the output drive shaft seals on the gearbox as they both seem to be leaking and change the gear box oil. Mostly cosmetic after that lol.

Sterling work as always Ian Bandit
My mom had a few of these back in the day and one had the same corrosion as you've seen. I actually remember seeing water moving around in the light cluster. Strange it didn't blow any bulbs Dont know I think it was down to the foam seal.....
Anyhoo, keep up the good work. I think there are a small group of us here that are keepin the brand alive Cool

There was water in the light actually. I have to add, I've never removed the sun roof from either of the 924 and 944's I've had in the past. Turns out it couldn't be easier! Roll on summer Thumb
