got some more news from SAM (Neat GearBoxes)

After all the cleaning, Sam spent some time gouging out small broken gear particles from the aluminium.
He found about 10 chunks like this by running a magnet around the case.
The last thing we would want is these little bits running through our new gear set or oil pump.


Here’s the assembled gear sets.


and setting up the bearing clearances.

brand new OEM selector forks
now everything OEM was shot peened
and everything copped the ISF treatment...


on other news...
had a mate of a mate Andrew from Werribee brake and clutch come out and re-do my brake lines for me.
the drivers side and prop valve one are basically oem style just re-done...
but the passenger side as u will see below was redone to be tighter on the body line and under the firewall lip...

Ok ok...
Sorri guys, its been a lil slow as we have been waiting on the panel and paint shop to have a free spot for us...as they do a lot of insurance work and can only take on 1 to 2 non insurance jobs at a time...
As of Monday...




We didnt expect any movement or work to b carried out for at least 2weeks...
But my bro went past last night...
and
Front guards in high fill


Doors and in the background u can see boot is in high fill...
Its hard to see...but the roof is pretty much rubbed back to bare metal...

I also wanted to thank you guys for inspiring me. Im currently building an S13 fastback with a K24. Mating it to the KA24de trans. Just missing an adapter plate to get the ball rolling.

re assembly time

ok...
its been hectic, and busy busy with life, but the silvia hasn't been forgotten...

we had a think about space and room, we need as much as possible, with the rx7 needing to b back inside and ready for some work also, we had no choice but to go up...



yep, you all guessed it...


didn't take long to install at all, and was pretty straight forward...

it holds the s13 weight and was left like this for 48hours to re check measurements and level b4 commencing work...


then we brought the mazda home and did our first test fit...


with millimetre clearance, we have ordered another set of 3inch hoist arm pad SPACERS...

onto the fun stuff...

my bro had some time the other night and decided it was time to start un wrapping the painted parts and start with the assembly...

rear bar on...


tail lights in...
Genuine smoked GK Tech's discontinued items...


Genuine ORIGIN 50mm rear wide body dummy fitted with tape...


then we bolted up the rear bar add on, BOMEX Bonneville, and to complete the look, 1 of the rear wheels fitted and jacked up to rough car height...
THE MONEY SHOT...



alignment is out and arms need adjusting to get that fitment right...
but u get the idea...


and to end the night...MAZDA back underneath


I hope u guys enjoy the update till next time...

okay boys n girls...

just to get the ball rolling....





so after the pics of the head being ported, we received these piks within a couple of days of eachother, this was about 1week b4 xmas, and boy was it looking to b a awesome present for my brother...






then it was bring it home time,
with all the parts that had been collated over the years the engine was at the shop being built, it was piece it together time...

this has taken its time, as its pretty much a fresh build this time around, almost nothing is being used again except for the exhaust manifold...lol


ill stop talking and just put some pics up in order of how its gone together...







in she goes...







ill take some more pics and try keep this upto date as best as possible...
