We were meant to be going to visit family today however one of the kids was a bit peaky, which meant I got some time in the garage and buttoned up the torque tube to the gearbox then stuck it in the car had my 18 year old son giving me a hand, all went tickety boo so a bit of a milestone getting that complete Thumb

so go most of the brake system refitted today however cant quite remember how the handbrake cables all go they are basically cable tied to the beam however there is a bracket that I`m not sure if the ferrulle is meant to come through and the retain it with a clip (like a brake line ) or is it just the cable the pet diagrams don't help and cant find any pics on line.

so if anyone has any pics Thumb

here is the bracket

Ian, I will need to see where it ends up after putting the torsion bars and beam back together I`m hoping it will be ok not sure I can face stripping the whole back end out again to set the bars however I do now have adjustment on the spring plates as everything is freed of and adjustable so hoping that will be enough to get it right Thumb

Managed to find a picture on the tinterweb of the handbrake set up,what was throwing me off was my powder coating was stopping the ferrule getting through the bracket so a bit of a file and got both through and retained them with an e-clip

Ok so a bit of an update, we didnt open the engine we found a fair bit of oil in the intake manifold and attached gubbins with the problem being the AOS seals now we changed them first time round however the main one on the bottom was hardly sealing. When I came back from the mot station when I parked up there was a pretty bad oil leak which turned out to be the main crank seal so that was changed.

so it was banged back in Thumb ended up with a misfire which is now sorted suspect poor connection somewhere as after we cleaned and sprayed all the contacts success and it is sounding and running sweet as a nut with the drivetrain also now silent after replacing the torque tube bearings so that's all the good news.

Now the bad news after totally stripping and restoring everything on the back end I always new resetting the torsion bars was going to be fun so the end result is I am now lower than Chris the lowest 964 in the North east and pretty much uneven and slamdunked Sad

so it will need to come back off again to set the bars which is a bit of a pain however will come off a lot easier second time Very Happy

After measuring it up and doing the calcs, I reckon it was only one inner spline out nooo which will lift it 6.5cm to level. I could leave it but the headlights don't hit the road Very Happy

Myself and kev the car doctor have had a busy and frustrating couple of nights trying to set the engine up, started with a misfire we the checked vacuum pipes and wiring followed by the car cutting out occasionaly, after much testing we traced it to the 9 pin connector at the bulkhead which had some poor connections so we cleaned it up spread the connectors and it seems to have resolved the cutting out and the misfire.

next step was to check the emmisions which was flagged up at the mot fail it refused to come below 2.3, so again a bit of testing and were pretty sure its the AFM that's at fault (open circuit between temp sensor and ground causes rich running) also took the lid of and had a look at the track which was heavily grooved so this is winging its way to frazerpart for a test and refurb.

This gives me some time to address my low rider, stripped most of the bolts out last night and hoping to get the beam out tonight to tickle the torsion bars round a bit lot easier second time round with new bolts Thumb

So the rear beam came back out again and we tickled the spring plates round, when I set them first time round I set them where I thought they should sit however this was in a pre-load position you need to think about where they should be once loaded up its not an easy task and a didgital inclinometer (£10 ebay) is a must to get both sides equal next step is a proper geo.

for reference I had the plates set at 36deg this is with the rear beam sitting level,at this angle the plates sit past the bottom bolt hole with the bump stop spacer and the bolt/spacer wont go in until the plate is loaded.

sitting a bit better now
