Well it runs :)

Here's the final engine bay. Hopefully! Just need a few hoses for the breather.

Cheers chap. Bit of running in then off to the rollers. Reckon I need to get around 100 miles on it first of high load (not high revs) first.

Taking engine out. Something up with 2nd gear. Was fine at first but I think maybe the baulk ring is getting caught on the hub. Can here it on idle sometimes and it doesn't go into gear very well. Maybe it would get better but I won't chance it.

I also have the turbo oil pump issue. I thought it would be Fine but think oil is draining back. Holds 60psi cold and 40psi hot just have to turn it over for about 15 seconds before the gauge shows anything.

Annoying but oh well. Got a a few days at start of febuary where I can get it sorted. Got all the bits ordered to sort it. Swifty pump and I have some spare baulk rings or a spare gearbox.

Engine out!

This is the oil pump gasket out my engine. The lighter area are the marks from the pump that was in it, a minispares turbo pump.
I have marked on the gasket as a comparison so you can see the difference. The black area is a sharpie trace of the new swiftune competition pimp. Clearly showing that it actually has some gasket face between the inlet and outlet and the cam area.

Swiftune pump on the left.

Hopefully the swiftune pump will sort the oil pressure build up when cranking.

Now onto the gearbox, hope to diagnose that this evening.

I've put my spare box in that i'd just finished rebuilding and will sort the one that was in it when i get some time.

Also turned my old clutch into a RTS, decided to put this one in as its got a lighter flywheel on it.

No so much, killed battery, main lead shorted against the starter housing. Heatshrink had worn through. My fault, shouldn't of had the lead touching the housing. Also must of nicked my cheapo oil pressure gauge hose so that pissed out oil. Oil pressure is spot on with the swiftune pump though.

Will get a better quality gauge or hose and i've ordered a battery.

Final figure were 141bhp and 156lbft torque.

All at about 10 psi. A little scope to up the boost :)
