    32 Ford continued

    Start of a new thread on works to the car, carried on from the existing thread in the Showfield.

    Due to new legislation around MOTs and approval testing this thread will show the BIVA build incorporated.

    After going over the car for the last couple of years it has been obvious although registered as a 32 Ford there is nothing original in the build so no points available there under the 8 point rule.
    All the parts were new or reproductions dating from around 98.
    This date means it misses the 1988 cut off year for and modifications.
    It also means it should have had an approval test when originally built. Not had a "wrong" reg. applied. Although this has "worked" for the last 18 or so years.
    The only saving grace is the engine has a casting number on it from pre-73 so it only requires visual emissions testing

    Off we go.........

    Offering up new headers and exhaust whilst the engines still in to see what needs to change.


    Looks like just a change of angle for the flange

    Up, up and away.


    She's out....


    Murder in the garage....when you forget to drain the trans oil
    AS the prop shaft came out so did all the oil!!! Rear seal totally fu**ed


    Scores on the slip yoke adding to leakage.


    Front seal also leaking!!!



    Convertor worn. Can this be used again? Not by me though need a higher stall.


    Its amazing how much you find wrong when taking an old car apart...... bell housing bolts just finger tight! and gearbox mount was not bolted to the actual box
    it was just sitting on the transverse bracket!

    Rear axle out next

    You could really upset the car by going manual and if racing then a lenco would sit nicely behind that monster motor you are building and then no auto trans fluid to worry about. Am I helping at all?

    Rear axle out. Houser built - chassis engineering 5 bar linkage and adj shock mounts. Rear re-enforcing bar.
    Now got to have it blasted to clean off all the cr*p and weld on the wheelie bar mounts


    Aftermath of the weekends work. Need to clear some space....who said a double garage was big enough


    When removing the 3rd member the oil looked like metal soup...loads of particles suspended in it.
    Looks like it may have come from the teeth.

    Unboxed new half shafts.



    New rear discs to match fronts.

    New bearings don't have an O-ring!!! Bu**er, how do I stop the oil leaking out now?







    Axle casing and 5 bars back from Nigel at Enviroblast. What a difference.
