KVA / SGT build

Welding of the gearbox mounts done, bracket for bowden wire installed (1st pic.). After rear clip re-assembly a fowling of clip and air filters, mounted on the left valve cover, became obvious - I will try to exchange covers against standard ones, since a oil catch tank is available in the workshop anyway . Nevertheless, the eightstack is looking nicely trough the rear clip, as desired!

Next was the installation of the fuel pressure regulator, pic. 3. The return line to the fuel catch tank across the engine bay will be hose number 4, almost no space left any more, but also no plans to add another one ...

The water pump pulley is located partly in the vehicle interior, so a dent is required in the rear bulkhead. Last two pictures show fitting work, and the final cover before welding. I saw similar staff in Spa over the last years, so quite satisfied with the design

More to follow, and a happy new year to all readers,

Udo

Hi Udo,

Really appreciate the info you sent. Just wondering if your gearbox gear selector shaft replacement was done using a knock in pin or did the original in your box have the friction welded option. If the latter, how did you go about separating it from your shaft. ?

Iím doing the same on an 01x. Very pleased with the GT Racing parts I received. Just a question of getting the selector component off that original hardened shaft.

Iíve access to a large lathe so I know I can bore out the 5mm of the old shaft that is now surplus to requirements if I have to.

Best.

Nick D.

Re: KVA / SGT build

Hi Nick,

luckily my shifter has the knock in pin option, so I got around to remove the friction weld. It sounds like some heavy machine work. And I didn't found the original selector shaft as spare parts either so far. Good luck,

Udo

Wheels came yesterday, got assembled and "short term stored" (optimistic approach) close to the car. Gearbox brackets are back from paint and got boltet to frame and 01E.

Unluckily, I forgot to install the hose from fuel pressure regulator to catch tank before the engine was mounted, so I needed to work under the car for installation (for some reason, I only can upload one single picture, but try to manage with another post later, so my four hose arrangement will become public). Catch tank shows really maximum number of fuel lines now ...

Finally, I attached the alternator to the engine, no collision here. I now can work on the water pipes, as soon as rotateable water inlet gets delivered - the current one almost fouls with the frame

More to follow,

Udo
