I love the Gs grew up with my parents having them and my early driving years were in the family GSA - look what it made me into :P

to stop the offtopics, here's another update ;) :D.


Phase 3: Dual Controls & Brakes

this is where proper engineering (and problems!) begin and what most of you have been waiting for! :)


in this chapter we tackle the dual clutch and dual throttle operation unit:

Image


as well as sort out the brakes to get a potentially usable car:

you can find the first part of the story (with 34 pics) on THIS PAGE.


thanks.

sorry for the delay, caused by web-access problems.


in this update, to conclude the Phase 3 story, we make the dual-gearshift system.

Image


you can find the 2nd/last part of the story (with 34 pics again) on THIS PAGE.


after nearly 2 weeks of engineering, hard work and a lot of sweat... Phase 3 is complete! :D

stayed tuned for Phase 4 of the 205 Mi32 Project!


p.s. if anyone's got an old style 205 GE-quickshift L-lever for sale, please let me know!


thanks.

sorry for the long delay, due to a computer crash, data loss and recovery and
system reinstallation on top of having a lot of commercial design work to do!


Phase 4: Coolant Radiator & Exhaust System

Phase 4 story is all about fitting a large customised radiator:

Image

and constructing both front and rear engine exhaust systems:

Image

so we could start the front engine next.


you can find the story (with 40 pics) on THIS PAGE.

this time it only took three full days of intensive work to complete the phase :).


stay tuned for a short video and then Phase 5 of the 205 Mi32 Project!


thanks.

after completing front engine's cooling and exhaust systems, we hard-wired an external
405 fuel pump to start the front engine after several months of being out of use...

Image

it started without problems, apart from expected noisy hydraulic lifters.

Phase 5: Rear Engine Electricity & Cooling

this is the first part of the Phase 5 story, where we tackle rear engine's wiring:

Image

and start plumbing the coolant pipes from the radiator towards the rear engine:

you can find the first part of the story (with 25 pics) on THIS PAGE.


stay tuned for the second part of the Phase 5 story!

thanks.

hi there,
i see you mentioned the front engine has noisy hydraulic lifters!!! is there any way of curing that? as thats the exact same soise my car makes! i thought it was the injectors clicking but obviously not.

they have quieten down since (and part of the noise was exhaust manifold related anyway).

you can take the rocker cover off, mark the lifters' position, take them out and then apart,
thoroughly clean the crap out of them, reassemble, try with your fingers to see if they're
efortlessly clicking without sticking, try to pre-fill them with oil and put them back in
their respective positions, that should cure the tappety noise :).

hope this helps.

hi there,
one question will they do or be damaged when they are making noise clicking away like they are now? or will it make no difference?

don't think they'll make damage, but it's not a good thing either way.

oh, and i forgot to mention a little detail - you need to remove the cams first! :roll:

in the second part of the Phase 5 story, we continue work on rear engine's coolant system:

Image

and after testing the wiring and all the sensors, we get the engine started:

Image

you can find the 2nd part of the story (with another 25 pics) on THIS PAGE.


with work being spread over a few months, Phase 5 is finally complete!

stay tuned for an exciting video of starting the rear engine! B)


i want to wish all the members of this forum a happy and successful new year
in health, love, business and ofcourse... cars! :)


thanks.
