This time round, I do some fixes & tweaks based on last episode’s test drive & subsequent discoveries about my four cylinder V6 engine…
There’s finally a break in the weather long enough for me to get the car out for a test drive in the Anglia! But…. it’s never that simple, is it?
In episode 33, I replace the banana-shaped driveshafts, and further investigate the horrible knocking noise coming from the engine.
I’ve done something a little different this time – an unedited “first person” segment – please let me know if you like it, and would like to see this kind of thing again!
In this episode, after the success of getting an MOT test and the car being road legal again, and the sadness of a burnt out coilpack connector and suspected failing engine, I fix the coilpack connector, and begin troubleshooting where that horrible knocking clunky noise is coming from.
This time round, I investigate what is going on with the clutch, after finding last time that it wasn’t quite working right. Will I need to remove the engine *again* to sort it out?
After a rain delay, the Anglia finally comes outside!
With the radiator modifications nearly re-done, I’m itching to get the car outside and run up to temperature. But is anything with this car ever that easy?
I’ve spent most of the time between last episode and this working on redoing the radiator modifications. So in the absence of anything else, here’s a slightly shorter video with an update of where I’ve got to.
In a bit of a change of pace, I try to cross a few outstanding tasks off my white board full of outstanding tasks!
This time I finish off the modifications to the cooling systems, and pressure test my work.
