Looks great and so much better than the Danbury sticker (warped in our case!)

What sort of cost is a late bay speedo? How much to recalibrate with Speedycables?

I'd just like to be able to know how fast we're going and be able to see the speedo in the dark, nothing important really! Cool

The cost to re-calibrate is about £80 but turnaround time is six weeks, so some forward thinking is required and it's what ever you can get a late bay speedo for mine came from ebay. The mountings for each speedo are not compatible, but I managed to use a bit of foam to jam the late bay speedo into my dash so I can still use my bus.

Some progress on the sump guard......

This is the rear bracket for my sump guard it is using the original brake arm mount
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-03-252013.47.05_zpsfg4ciu9n

This is it from the front
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-03-252013.47.24_zps5e2cmwcw

This is the plate that is fitted to the original left hand drive steering box mount on the chassis leg.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-03-252013.47.46_zpsrmtemiyl

The white plates(one still needs to be bent)will be welded to the steering box mount plate, then the black crash beam(sump guard) will be bolted to them.

This is a side view, still got to weld on the plates but gives you an idea.  I think I'll make it a bit shorter.

You have to clean the inside aswell as it would annoy me if they are dirty. Not everyday but everytime I wash the bus.

Well sump guard is finished, pics to follow.

The task for today was engine removal for clutch and alternator replacement.

Jacked up and on axle stands.

First was air box removal now you see it!

I had removed the back panel first before the bumper and towbar, because there where two captivated nuts which just spun in the chassis when trying to remove the bolts. These had to get cut off in order to remove said bumper and towbar no pics as I was a little annoyed to say the least(more to fix for refitting)

After everything was disconnected, we did forget a breather pipe to the canister underneath so remember that one folks.  It was just a matter of removing the 1 bolt and 3 nuts to relieve the engine from the gearbox.  There is one nut behind the fan shroud on the offside within the engine bay(thanks dad for finding that cheers )

Canister which breather pipe needs removing(added pic now)

.....Clutch removed, it looks like  the clutch was getting fairly hot!
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-052015.55.56_zps8ymvkexh

Flywheel, a little heat discolouration.  Locking tool in place in order to remove the pressure plate bolts.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-052015.55.51_zpslecytgcg

Remember to put some grease which is supplied with the new clutch on this roller bearing when refitting.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-052015.56.08_zpsuz16pxqj

Old clutch release bearing, the one I took off had an extra bit sticking out the back which my replacement doesn't have.  This may not have allowed full clamping force onto the flywheel a possible reason for slipping on steep inclines.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-052016.30.50_zpsiwkmgo2p

Bearing removed just a spring clip either side, a little grease on the splines and the cone which the release bearing slides on helps keep everything moving.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-052016.09.50_zpsskn2lwz4

New clutch and pressure plate being installed with clutch aligning tool and flywheel locking tool holding flywheel still, keep checking as you tighten the bolts on the pressure plate that the clutch tool slips in and out easily.(You did lube the roller bearing?)

But I read Buzzinfinity's instructions, loosened the intake pedestal to get enough room to get a spanner on the bottom bolts but could I get my spanner in to turn it, not sure if it was the shape and size of my spanner and I could go to the other side of the engine and try but no luck so decided on a different tactic.

Loosen the two bolts either side of the fan shroud

It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-06%2009.47.23_zpspqivbzft

I then removed the alternator bracket and lifted the fan shroud with alternator attached in one lump up and out.  This is the way when the engine is out, so I once again salute you Buzz for doing it with engine in.

It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-05%2019.14.13_zpsqtyiwo6e

and its out
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-05%2019.54.29_zpsqzgijqcg

I then took the fan off the alternator 36mm nut holding the fan belt side with a big adjustable and this is the order it came off, alternator is positioned from the left. Spacer, two shims, fan, shim, spring lock washer 36mm nut.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-07%2019.54.04_zpsixcozlef

You then need a puller to get the fan side mount off the shaft.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-07%2019.56.06_zpsy0txim7r

There is a little keyway on the shaft.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-07%2019.55.57_zpsbfiu3gqt

The fan side just needed a little tap and it came off ok, you can see the flats I held with the adjustable spanner in order to get the fan nut off.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-07%2019.56.51_zpsdqgn6zi0

Ready for reassembly new one on left hand side.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-07%2019.55.31_zpsl7qd0g2d

As Buzzinfinity said I'm using the original spacers in the same order they came off so the fan won't hit the shroud.

I thought I would take the opportunity to adjust my tappets when the engine is out to aid access.

Took nearside off and found this inside, a rocker shaft spring washer!!!

Thanks Ronnie Ringding for finding the stockists for these parts, they were quickly ordered this morning, will eventually get this engine back in sometime this year!!!

So I thought I would use this down time to repaint my rocker covers. One half cleaned up with the wire wheel.

The last time I changed my sparkplugs it was a bit of a pain getting the sparkplug socket onto the plug straight as the tin ware was stopping it.

So I decided to take the tin ware off to enlarge the holes in the right places to make it really easy to change them in the future.

It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-06%2014.01.46_zpsu3qmmog2

I had to remove however the inlet manifolds to take the tin ware off and then the gaskets decided to fall apart when doing so, but luckily Euro Car Parts could get the gaskets for tomorrow.

Oh forgot to mention when taking some of my exhaust off in preparation for engine removal, I noticed the welds to the silencer's had broken, luckily it has a lifetime warranty so once Phileas is back together I will need to take it back for fixing.

Thank folks  Embarassed

Well my rocker shaft spring washers arrived yesterday great service from Machine7, just got round to fitting today.

Started to pull everything off the shaft in order to replace it.

Back to alternator managed to build it back up ready for installing into the shroud.

Bolted the two sides of the tin ware together plus there is a little spacer in the middle then two bolts hold it onto the back of the alternator.

A little painting I couldn't help myself, just to spruce it up Rolling Eyes
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-08%2016.02.40_zpssfywzkg2

Then it was on with the fan using the spacers and shims as they came off(Top tip Buzzinfinity) and then tightening the 36mm nut.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-08%2016.07.04_zpsxia2um08

All done ready to go into the shroud.
It's stripping time! - Page 11 2015-04-08%2017.37.35_zps1jdmoecr

I couldn't get the bolts to line up in the shroud, then I noticed the two halves of the alternator tin ware were not lined up.  So back off with the fan, loosen the bolts straighten the two halves this time I put a nut and bolt in one hole to keep it aligned while I tightened the alternator bolts.
