For those days when your parts just can't arrive quick enough, for sunny days when the transit just isn't 'fun'...

Project X...

Coming soon to a shed near me.

1997 DOHC, weber TC, MT75 box and Sierra fixed 3.72 diff in a Phaeton 3/4 hybrid.

I did some playing on gear calc and the theoretical stats look like this.…

Q835XSC - Dutton Legerra Series 2

IMAG0299

So, collected last weekend and the first chance I get to go over it we have snow / hail / rain and gales... lovely if your a penguin I guess...

Q835XSC purchased from the factory in 1988, completed in 1990, stored for the winter in 1991 and there it sat for 22 years, possibly one of the saddest Legerras I have ever seen apart from my black one.

It…

HPG128K - Dutton Sierra Series 2 - rescued from an early grave?

Sierra II

So the saga of the gearbox rear seal continues. When it had the rear crank seal done the garage also fitted a prop/tailshaft seal which promptly leaked just as badly as the one they took out.

When I had the horrible vibration issue it was coming from the prop not fitting into the gearbox. Thinking this might have damaged the bush inside the…

So, the big question is what is she worth in her current state, I am not in a position to do much more and I am running out of options so I think I must prepare for the worst and let her go, hopefully to a good home where she can be saved. Anybody interested ? She has full weather gear, new brakes, tyres, is in running order.

Thanks for the welcome!  My friend and I bought this as a winter project and are wondering if we have the only one?  We usually are working on MG's and Triumphs' and would like to have a Caterham or Lotus 7 but, don't have the funds.

Thanks very much for the Welcome gents. Its took me a while to work out how to reply (much easier when on desktop view).

For those who havent come across me i have series 1 legerra with a 2.0 Zetec bought it about 18 months ago after having a good look around Adrians at Stoneleigh. 

Ripped the 1600 X flow out as it had loads of crank endfloat and put a 2 0 Zetec blacktop and a mazda rx8 6 speed box.

Proceeded to take it on a 2200 mile tour around Europe and managed to leave me bonnet unclipped and it wrecked the windscreen.

Currently converting it from bike carbs and Nodiz to run on the O.E ford ecu i was quite impressed with Danny Bosworths oe fuel injection setup.

Barr with me i will update the progress as i get make my way through it. Whats the easiest way to post photos on here

Adrian. Are you able to send the Legerra build plans by any chance. I am just about to get into some ground work and have planned a few fixes 1. Chassis strengthening. 2. Radiator move to eliminate hose fretting 3. Roof bolt hole fix for hard top and soft top. 4. Some bodywork repairs at doors and rear small prang issue.
Quick question - does the bonnet come off easy without damage. I need to take a covering off to see how it works but this is just purely advice on this issue at present.
Cheers Jordy

thks for the photos they really help to understand the principle and your explanation is very good. I understand what the fix does and the cause of sagging - this may take a bit of time to sort out and especially handling welding with it all assembled. Bit of planning needed my side - I will be in touch when I am close to starting for a final check so no balls ups.

i suspect the strengthening is the issue. 

Cheers Jordy

ok thanks for that. Are there any pics to show the fix ? Probably be quite obvious when I get it up to look underneath. 

Cheers Jordy
