New clutch

And the new BE3 gearbox (still not sure i will use it ... i think i will combine it with other diff or something , for longer ratios)

Image

thanks Romania for the rads and the dirt :cry:


Image

Also done my injection pump(it had some problems , found out why it didn`t run at full potential )
In one week i hope to mount the new gearbox and clutch ,also hope to find the right new intercooler (the one above is not available)
also if things work out , i might end up making a BX HDI :D we shall see

i come with news , the gearbox is done , we used the diff that i had on the old gearbox from 1.9 GT 16x59 , the be3 gearbox from the td had 16x63 :wink: the gearbox is very good .
Unfortunetly the clutch is toasted already , it does not hold the power (now that i am at 1.3 bar turbo pressure) so i am in search of a ceramic custom clutch ... only thing is that i have no more money , because i made an intercooler upgrade :)
But for now it is ok , even with the roasted clutch(smells very nice , NOT) it is a little faster than before .
It looks kinda` ugly with this bumper , so i am in search of a mk2 16 valve bumper to fit around the intercooler .(if you know somebody that has one ... please let me know , i will buy it and somehow get it to romania)

Image





The sound of the old diesel :) i like it , very silent under normal driving ...

uh nice one jeth !!! i saw some short film on youtube ! sweeeeet :D

also .. i am now waiting for my ceramic clutch ... and also i bought a big turbo (that would be ready at the end of may .. i think)
Next weekend i hope to get the clutch done.. for drag racing (national) ... very powerfull cars... but i hope to get a 14 something sec on 400 m ... (i am runing on slicks) hope the gearbox will hold the power ... i will run at 1.2-1.3 bar if everything will work fine :D
