The adaptor

A photo of the adaptor + flywheel and clutch already installed. Due to the different clutch disc we had to make our own clutch disc aligning tool. Of course we torqued the flywheel bolts with a torque wrench !412 engine 001

Delta

Colected the adaptor + matching flywheel yesterday in the Netherlands. Luckily Rene from www.delta-rv.nl had to visit some family so I had a shorter trip. We badly needed the adaptor made to ours specifications as the TIV gearbox is DIFFERENT ! Everyone assured us the gearbox and flywheel are the same as bus - They are NOT ! The clutch disc has totally different teeth at it's center is smaller in diameter - the prise axle is longer too ! Took a lot of measurments and drawing but Rene did a fine job as everything went in smooth ! The adaptor is made from high grade air plane alu and the flywheel is partially new !Adaptor 002

The engine

We wrecked the car in one day end stripped the wiring loom too - It took some time as we needed to make sure we had all the sensors and relais to keep the engine management complete - Note that the engine came out of a running car !A rather compact engine !Progress 31-03-2007 001
