Oh boy, what an epic landscape Your music selection painted in front of me !
For the second part to come - the burnouts - I’d suggest Valkyrie !
It all looked that easy, did You re-gap the pinion gear ? What is the LSD ratio ? (slip torque diff.)
Thank you , was pretty much straight forward , I did not touch the pinion at all , did have a good look and tried to pull and bush things about , but all looked ok,ratio is in the heading , 3.54 LSD
Well on my way to fitting it now , old one is out , lsd ready to slide under .
I meant torque ratio. For BMW it is 25% typically up to 70% for racing purposes.
High ratio highly equalizes drive torque between wheels, which is more hazardous on slippery surface.
I read that Jag LSDs are … adjustable ? I.e. slip is defined by friction plates pre-load pressure adjustment. (??)
That I don’t know !!
Nice video: could I ask to be your spelling editor?
What did I miss Paul ?
Popped off not poped. And there was anther that didn’t look correct as well.
Doesn’t matter, still liked it
Thank you davidsxj6
3.54 all bolted on now , just need to clean the discs , fit new pads and bleed the brakes.
Another modification I have done is , replace the Rear Spring Clamping Plates, with uprated one’s
As you can see the old one’s are well bent !
The wee British flag is a nice touch!
Not quite finished , I forgot about the Panhard rod , and checking the adjustment , took the measurement’s and there was 10mm diffrence , so 5mm out , went to adjust it , what a pain in the ass that was !
In the end I took the rod off , and turned it around , so the adjustment end is now on the inside , much easier to get a spanner on and you can see what your doing , I guess it’s ok if you have a lift , or a pit ,
As I am getting older , may think about digging a pit .
Any way all adjusted up , will check it again , after a 1000 or so miles !
Took the car for a test run as well , just around the block , noticed the diffrence straight away , car has much longer legs in each gear !
Will have to wait till lock down is over so I can up the speed and check with a sat nav !!
C’mon Ian, we know burial space is in short supply in some areas, but digging your own pit !!! don’t let Covid 19 get to you !
BTW your year cat should have self adjusting handbrake mechanisms, to much trouble ?
That’s a thought Peter , a little deeper and I could be walking on the wife
I had the choice on what mechanism to use , went for the simplest , just the long bolt to turn to adjust , lets face it , the car is stationery when you use the hand brake , so there is next to no wear on the pads , unless you forget to release it , have done that in the past lol
I’m sure you have but please use the correct oil for the LSD
Well that’s the next 50 years taken care of
Took the car out today , managed to get some speed up , down the M20 , speedo is out by 10mph , that’s not changed , but the revs have come down , going by the sat nav
60 mph 2100 revs
70 mph 2400 "
80 mph 2700 "
Car is much more fun to drive , put your foot down and it want to keep on going , don’t feel the need to change up or down so much !
Been experimenting with LSD recently ?
I mean grass … argh, a meadow, doing easy drifts …
