    so:

    1. cover bushes in fuel then burn
    2. cut out center with rip saw
    3. cut out outer mount with rip saw
    4. freeze new bushes
    5. hammer in

    sound right?

    Cut out the inner metal sleeve, with the recip saw.

     

    The rubber will burn once you get it going, i just used brake cleaner to start it, but the Blow torch will be your best friend here. the rubber will need to be removed as it burns , or it puts itself out. 

    so you use a screw driver you don't like to tap all the burnet rubber out of the fire.

     

    Use a wire brush and brush down one side of the bush so you can see the metal sleeve easily.

     

    You then need to cut down it, while being careful to not cut into the subframe. I used the elec recip saw like a boss, but some people prefer to do this by hand.

     

    Then screw driver and hammer it, till it just slides out.

     

    I had new busing in the Waeco on -22 for 5 hours.

    I just hit them 5-6 times with a big hammer and they went in pretty easily tbh.

    The Gktech ones have a rounded lip to make sure they get started pretty easy.

    I have made a tool to measure the heights of the valves so you can shim it properly. It slides into the lifter hole and you can kind of swing it from one valve to the other that share the rocker and then you know what size shim you need as it has i dial gauge stuck to it. Between me and a friend we also have a bunch of spare shims and the slotted ones. Can usually get them where you want them. If you think it might help let me know.

    I might have to borrow this from you if I may.

    Righto!

     

    Nav was giving me the sheets, so bought a BA falcon ute, so far best money ive spent. Tows fracken great and heaps of room for stuff and sheet.

     

    Went to Matsuri weekend just gone and had a blast.

     

    Surprise Surprise, before lunchtime on the first day I was replacing a rocker arm....got this sheet down tho and took less than a hour, with heaps of stops to chat to randoms.

    offer the broken rocker arm up to the Collie gods.

    Apart from that, the sheetter ran great...it seems to devolp a hunger for coolant - but thats something im keen to ignore

    just wait till every trim starts falling off your falcon, if they havent already :lol:


    the JUN S15 (broken) - 000hp
    s13 ca18de two tone silver/grey - 2hp

    previous
    s14 [ZENKI] (built) - 350hp
    s13 ca18de two tone silver/grey - 2hp (back in my arms)
    s13 two tone unrego - soon to be daily (was simply never to be)

    IF YOU DONT THINK TWO TONE S13'S ARE THE TIGHTEST SHEET THEN GET THE FRACK OUT OF MY FACE

    roof lining was saggy, guy on GT does exchange reconed roofs...so got that sorted.

     

    Apart from that everything in order.

    It to basic to have that much trim to fall out :P

    Took the old girl drag racing last week, forgot i had hammerd the clutch at drift and she was not holding,

     

    the best i managed was a 12.6 with a bad 60 foot, but had to go easy otherwise the clutch would slip on power.

     

    so now need to change clutch 

     

    yay

     

    :(
