                • So some updates
                  The crank was not good only one side where is woodruff key. So i find another one and this looks better as guy from machine shop told me, so i polish and grind them. But i have both cranks
                  Yesterday arrived turbo blanket on the hot side, fits perfectly. Than i practice my welding, made some brackets to the tyres for stop the car while i am changing tyres and than i make some cartoon sump baffles. I want to give a try, if its will be bad i order one from Thomas
                  Its not complete i want to make some holes for better oil flow from the bot sides to the oil pump.
                  Than i grind the block for weld the piece for headgasket, make a thread to blind one oil hole and weld a bung for a crankshaft breathing




                  Not too much time to make more things because of next month i have a final exams at college, or how its says

                  • Another few parts arrived...I hope that i could find here some AAN/3B/7A head for sale in good condition without cracks. In turbo i made a new oil outlet threads, because of problem to find bolts with proper thread (in your country is used a metric system)

                      • Seems like that all of them have broken accelerator pedal.

                            That engine building book is very good, you will find it very useful
                            If you can send me the pedals I can make new bushes for you

                            • Thanks Alex, that shipping cost more than whole pedal box Thats problem. I try to find someone here who should do that, if not, i let you know. U need whole pedal box? Not only those plastic bushes? I am thinking about buying some more books. This book is very good and useful. Lot of good informations and well explained

                              • I only need the pedals themselves, not the whole aluminium piece.
                                The actual insert is easy too, it's just the external shell which is slightly different on each pedal due to the manufacturing process (friction welding).
                                I have plenty other books but the one you have is by far the best
