Any suggestions for the simplest way to adjust the camber on a Phaeton Series 3 - ie escort based?  The camber is 1 degree different between sides 2 degrees and 3 degrees. Would like to adjust the 3…Continue

Photo (poor) of baffled sump added. Any suggestions about removing the return tube from the oil pump to the sump? It's a press fit and I would rather take it out before taking block for a rebore.

"Will do. I have a NS uncut strut which I can cut to size, the OS one is goosed so its a singleton and no loss being cut. To save on weight i'll strip it and if I get time, blast it. Do you want a new wheel bearing included?"

"Ade, if you have a modified strut that’s close to the right height that would be great, as it will speed things up - I’m trying to spend the summer on the road rather than garage! My right/OS cast strut is cut to 59mm above the collar My…"

"I had 6 plates made to take the maxi joint taper. My plan is to work out the angle and copy it to the other side with a jig. I’m dreamer it will be simpler I expect. The chassis also makes a difference "

Mark Bagnall replied to Mark Bagnall's discussion Camber correction
"Ade, that would be great, thanks, I’ll measure tomorrow. The right cast one must be mk2, larger hole than left bolt on and metric calliper mounts. Would the larger hole mean it is Mexico/RS 2000? Could you let me know the hole size on the top…"

Running Improvements

Posted on May 21, 2015 at 23:10 30 Comments

Hope this will be of interest to some of you, especially those who took the time to share their experience to help me out.  A quick recap.  I bought an S3 Phaeton in Autumn last year that was running, with MOT and a good basic spec.  Probably paid too much but I wanted a runner to work on rather than the B+ Malaga sat in bits.

Spec; 1700 crossflow, twin 40 Dellortos, BCF2 cam, Bosch electronic distributor, Type 9 box, 5 link axle with rose joints, Gaz adjustable dampers.…

Progress ?

Posted on July 4, 2014 at 23:42 3 Comments

Pretty pissed off tonight - I managed to put in a lot of hours over the last couple of weeks but didn't allow enough clearance. I'm trying to gain as much leg room as possible so I can actually get in and drive but I took key positions when the axle wasn't actually on full bump so now I have to do it all again!

I may have asked this before, but does anyone run bump stops for their axles?

I hope to make some positive progress over the weekend - at least I can attach my new chassis… Continue

Here's the first view of what's covered my lovely clean garage floor, can you tell what it is yet?

I'm sorting the paperwork out with Ade but it's not going to be ready for Stoneleigh that's for sure.  It was a runner (before I got at it) because I was determined not to buy a several year long project. …
