Viva GT: what next?
It’s been two weeks I stopped working on the GT, and a week since the big show I was aiming for, its been a quiet two weeks of taking stock of things both with the Viva and some other very important decisions in life. I will not bore you with those, but suffice to say I plan to spend more time on me than work ASAP.
So I thought it was time to start back on the GT, I had previously fished out of the old bits an alloy bottom pulley, and taken it to the machine shop, who produced a perfectly finished pulley to which the trigger wheel (off the steel pulley) was fitted.
Once its all dry this afternoon, I will start the job of fitting it back to the engine, the bad news is that I will need to remove the radiator (yet again) in order to get room to torque it up correctly.
Speaking of removing things, I have a list of work which seems to be endlessly telling me to remove items from the car in order to get access to the things I am trying to work on! Not good for the mojo.
Starting with the ECU. I had rather neatly thought hiding it in the back of the consul was smart. Alas it was not and I need better access to it for mapping, so the consul needed to come out, which means the seats carpets and handbrake also need to come out first in order to get access.
