The INBLAN Manual Churro Maker - New bearings and a full strip and clean


Not only will I fix your cars, I can help fix your restaurant equipment.
They are very similar to cars :) You just need a little know how.  But they are often dirtier than cars though :(

















My latest investment, now I can do more types of bushes and bearings.















Haha quality @_@ look at how chewed the shaft is
























































































It took about 6hrs for the machine.  The grease was very hard to break.



Ralliart Colt Clutch - This is what you call a metal clutch




Not my first clutch, you may recall all the other blog posts on clutches and gearboxes.

Before & After a Clean










































Grease pivots










Always torque your bolts.









This car is parked outdoors and the bolts are all siezed and tight.  The stud on the alternator stripped @_@



















Ahh the good ol crappy gearbox linkage mounts.  Time to upgrade with some custom units.

Energy Suspension Prothane Engine Mount Insert Kit - Eclipse to EC5W Legnum

I haven't posted in ages!
Not to worry, I have still been busy.

So I currently am doing small things to the Legnum.
I have a bunch of mounts to stick in.

Energy Suspension Prothane Engine Mount Insert Kit
Contains the 4 parts to replace damaged or sagged engine mounts.
You need to remove each mount, cut out the rubber from the metal frame and insert the prothane mounts.

The front roll mount rubber will sit a little proud on each side, as this kit is made for the Eclipse. 
The best install procedure is to get an Eclipse front roll mount, which are stronger than the Legnum ones.




Mitsubishi Eclipse:
13-503BL = ENGINE MOUNT INSERTS - RIGHT UPPER
13-507BL = MOTOR MOUNT INSERTS - FRONT
13-508BL = MOTOR MOUNT INSERTS - 6 CYL - REAR
13-509BL = MOTOR MOUNT INSERTS - LEFT UPPER




























I used the Eclipse front roll stopper mount, you need to elongate the mounting hole to make it fit. about 5mm

EG vs Colt - Barbagallo Raceway No Limits


Time to provide some updates, stay tuned.

After how many years of ownership? 4 on the dot? The /project-civic-eg-with-b18c.html came out to play. It was inherited with approx 175k km.  It took on about 50k km over the years.
I received my little toy hatch back in approx Feb 2012.  From there I pieced it back together and it somehow became a daily.

<- Speed back in 2012






A very reliable daily, it only had one tow :) a bad fuel pump :(
Not much you can do.










You can see part of a flashback here /tribute-my-daily-b18-civic-eg-21xxxxkm.html
This wasn't the first time it saw some track /wa-sprint-championship-round-8-25102015.html after the Colt engine blew, the Civic was called out to save the day.








Speedo now ->









My friend got this from Taiwan, when the 86 was a concept :)

I used the short circuit as a comparison, it did well on the long circ...But that was about finding the groove.





Not really a comparison, but just for a reference.  The long circuit was pretty much a warm-up.
