How to rebuild a Sierra and have fun doing it

Posted on February 24, 2013 at 2:45 1 Comment

My Sierra has not got any further at the moment due to impending house move and that bloody woman who has now gone thank god so all bar me getting my dosh back i can now get on with life again


Im still waiting for my engine crane to come back from its six month holiday  with my boy but as soon as it does i can strip the Alfa as i need front suspension complete and also rear comlete as the existing Ford setup will come off the Sierra , I will then take the body off again on…


Donor due monday

Posted on December 11, 2012 at 22:27 22 Comments

Well i have i just arranged delivery of my donor for the Sierra so the fun begins and i will probably have the chassis out again to do a few mods . I may even post a few tantalising  pics of it on here

Hi Daryl

Thanks for your comment on Melos . It is easier to put it on my tilt bed than climb out of it.Trailer is available if anybody as problems and need one.

As far as I'm concerned it all started to go downhill when the Teddy Boys decided not to stand up for the National Anthem when the film finished at the Essoldo.

Had another brilliant thought. Got a tonneau cover from our favourite Cumbrian Mr. T so she should be both warm, and quiet underneath that , Hope she never reads this blog and that Ade keeps quiet !!

Not much help to you really Daryl,all the cars I have seen over the years with Triumph rear ends I have walked away from !
Might be worth asking the triumph sports car club they do some very good uprated stuff for the front assembly so there might be stuff for the rear ?
Modern spring,better locating kit camber adjuster ???
The other obvious upgrade would be to the notoriously floppy Dutton chassis
Add some triangulation and spread the suspension loadings
The firmer your chassis even if the suspension is less than perfect you will get more reliable/uniform handling characteristics and you have a better base line to start your improvements from
