Different Flywheel - Still Vibrates!!

In the previous post, I'd gone to the mammoth effort of removing the flywheel to see if could nail down the reason for the unpleasant vibration that was coming through the car ever since the new engine had been fitted.

First on the agenda today then is to measure the nose of the crank for any deviations that could be causing the flywheel to wobble. Even though this is very unlikely to be the case, (unless I'm very unlucky) it's worth checking while I can for peace of mind. Second task is to fit the flywheel from my old engine, fire it up and see what the result is...

Flywheel Removal In Situ

On the go at the moment is the seemingly never ending project to build myself a half decent engine. All seems to be working mechanically, however there is a slight, but very annoying vibration at all parts of the rev range that I want to nail. In this post here, I changed the top engine steady bushes, but didn't solve the issue. So today, I'm looking to remove the flywheel and swap it over with a spare to see what the effect will be.

I've decided to perform this task with the engine in situ as it's preferable to taking the engine out again, but looking at the engine bay, there is still a lot of work ahead as the flywheel is somewhere under this little lot...

A Quick Ketchup!!

I know, I know... it's been ages since my previous blog post; but what with a mixture of winter weather limiting any progress, being too busy with work and also being unwell; I've not been able to crack on and get as much done as I would have wanted to. But fear not dear reader, the blog is not dead, at least not yet!!!



So as it's been so long, let's have a quick catch up on the story so far and take it from there...
