Re: Project sharkbait

It's for chassis stiffness more than anything g... but then it may be handy in case you get a bit excited with the 150bhp..

Re: Project sharkbait

Yeah will add it to the maybe list also picked up some parts for the car today and I've also got the belt fitted but the battery is so flat I can't jump start it so might be a new battery

Re: Project sharkbait

Well I had a bit of a frustrating morning today trying to get the cinque to turn over but it's just not turning fast enough possible things are loose connection on the alternator or starter bad earth between the two or anything else that someone comes up with hahahah

Re: Project sharkbait

How does the engine feel turning by hand?, if it feels free, i'd suspect it's pure voltage related, maybe corroded terminals or earths just meaning the starter can't get enough oomph. Worth cleaning the earth from the inner wing to the negative post on the battery.

Re: Project sharkbait

Engine turns freely didn't even need a socket on the aux belt pully to turn it so must be free so I'm guessing same as what your thinking corroded earth somewhere

Re: Project sharkbait

Stick a jump lead on the negative of the battery and connect other end to the engine block and see if that makes a difference

If not, jump it from another car whilst it's running, and see if that spins it faster.

Re: Project sharkbait

Yep, add in a 2nd earth, good thinking mark. Could also do the same with the positive to positive terminal on the starter as well?

Re: Project sharkbait

100 fs points to mrcento it's an earth issue engine turns so much faster with a jump lead between the negative and the block now I need to see if it's picking fuel up and I'm getting a spark picking new plugs up tomorrow cause the old ones are black like really black so new spark plugs and clean the earth fingers crossed it should start again haha

Re: Project sharkbait

Well a little more progress

Shark bait is having trouble starting due to its idle control valve being stuck so when starting I have to play with the throttle to get it too start pain in the backside once I get it started I have to hold the revs at 2000 or it will stall so yesterday I went to remove the icv to find someone has stripped the torx on the harder of the bolts so I've dismantled the throttle body and I'm going to try hacksaw a slit to get a flat head in or drill the head off remove icv then get the rest of the bolt out pain in the backside lol on another note I really need a new exhaust for it cause it's stupid loud atm hahaha
