Arrow My Indigo Blue Throttle Bodied 106 Rallye - Manifold Update Last Page!

To cut a long story short, I sold my Saxo to Pauly Dixon and bought Hanks 'old' Rallye. Plan is to fit my engine and box (now complete) fit my seat and other parts and mint it up a bit more, then have it as a road/track toy. Anyways here's the latest...

Right i've had a chance to do a bit more of a proper write up regarding the engine installation so here it is:

I loaded up the van on saturday with all the parts - engine, gearbox, Grp N wishbones, Steering, and other various nuts and bolts etc and then got up pretty early on the Sunday to head to Hanks gaff in Newport Wales. Bit of a debacle en route as I didn't have enough dosh for the severn bridge (assumed it would be about £3 and it turned out to £15!) :eek: So anyway they let me through and I just had to pay by post instead...and if you don't pay within the week it goes up to £90!!! Robbin' bastards!

That aside, I got to Hanks about elevenish and we made a start straight away.

First Job was to check all the hoses in the bay were ready, and to remove the old Fuel pressure regulator that Hank had installed for his engine - mine already has one so we did away with that. 2nd pic shows Hank modeling the latest fashion in Wales, otherwise known as the '106 Rallye Frock'!





2nd job was to mate the engine to the Gearbox - this was done without too much trouble once we had lifted the engine up a little using the crane, and then located the input shaft into the clutch. We then bolted everything up and checked it was all tight etc:







Next job was to try the brakes on the car to see if they fitted...needless to say they didn't, but the discs sure looked sexual regardless:



Next up was the actual engine fitment. ALthough the pics give the impresion that this was an easy task, while it was relatively straight forward there was a lot of heaving and fecking about to move it into postion while we lowered the car down onto it using the crane, all the while trying not to scratch or break anything (which we managed fine!)







We then 'simply' lowered the car to the ground, and pulled the engine up into place using the crane, then onto then bolted it all in:




We then had to modify the throttle cable to fit, which we did. Meanwhile Hank discovered he had somehow implaed himself with some braided hose in his leg - stings like a bitch!







After that we connected pretty much everything else, fitted the wishbones, checked it all and we were done! All that was left to do was admire our handiwork.








The car get's delivered to my house this weekend so more updates to come!

Thanks mate. Yes all of that is inside. I still need to get the actual engine wired as it's not done yet. Also I am getting an exhaust done by primary designs as the bore on the Pugsport that was on it is WAY too small for the engine and KRS manifold.

Seen you put the engine in on shed or ssc, does look fantastic. Was well worth the wait of having the enigne as an ornament for a long time lol. Really want to pop the ecu and fuse's inside the car when i do this, how "involved" is it?
