re: slow build 16v cinq

I bought a cheap Dremel clone from Argos and some stainless steel wire wheels from Maplin. Cleaned the cylinder head a treat. Defo need goggles though.

that's what im getting, not a bad price with the flexi

personally i don't like ordering off the internet like eurocarparts made a order just over 100 this morning and my tracking No doesn't exist some companies are just jokes

re: slow build 16v cinq

made a little bit of progress today, cleaned and painted the sump along with the metal water pipe from the block in black and part of the block in red

taking the cams and casing in col today to strip and clean to get rid of as much of the old oil and dirt

as for parts wise getting hold of eurocarparts is crap like im using smoke signals

re: slow build 16v cinq

stripped the cam carriers down today to find pure horror, cam bearings were completely shot so chucked that into the scrap metal bin

on the other hand pulled one off another car for 30 so isnt that bad

euro car parts had an error on there end so no parts for me this weekend

re: slow build 16v cinq

cant find dam cable, so no pictures atm

on the replacement cam carrier today 30 aint bad, full of oil too so hopefully its all good for when i strip it on monday

wondering if to get the head skimmed to increase the CR slightly for a bit more oomph but the valves seem so far out, the mating surface is ok but some damage around a oil passage and lots of little marks from the HG

gotta get myself a short-shifter, like stirring porridge compared to the panda

re: slow build 16v cinq

Just get a standard skim as the comp ratio is high standard.

re: slow build 16v cinq

made a little bit of progress today cleaned all the mating surfaces again, especially the sump to get all the sealer off, fitted the new clean oil pickup only to find the new locktite i bought was pretty much empty

part of the painted block


sump and water pipe painted


one of the runners on the lower section of the inlet manifold, plenty of room for improvement


new cam carriers, its really manky but full of oil inside



couldn't find a picture anywhere of the cam seal off a stilo with a view of the mounting points for it, im guessing it would bolt on if i got one as this looks horrible



not to mension i had a clean up for my "dump" its like a game of hide and seek for fiat parts



just contemplating whether to get a 1.4 flywheel and clutch setup

re: slow build 16v cinq

I'd keep the standard flywheel/clutch setup as you might go for the 1368 16v later which will come with them no doubt.
