The MX5 is gone
I weighed it in on Saturday along with the floor pan and bulkhead from Stella. I tidied up at last and i can sleep again
Spent the day sorting out all the running gear and stripping the bearing out of the uprights. I've got one drive shaft and CV joint that will not separate from the hub. CV joint is fucked........well it is now after i tried to persuade it out with a BFH:(
I had a look at where the engine is going to sit
I think it needs to be back a bit further as you can see the indent on the oil pan where the steering rack needs to be.
That's all for a while anyway as i'm off on holiday to Egypt in a few weeks, i might get next weekend in.
So that brings you up to date.
I need a few things clarifying please. I didn't get to see the underside of the MX5 before i stripped it. Am i right in thinking that the indent in the oil pan IS where the steering rack is located? I'm not using the MX5 rack but have to make up the front of the space frame.
Also i need a new CV joint.......once i get other one out of the hub
Do later ones that have the ABS ring fit OK in a 1994 mk1? I don't want to use ABS but can use it in conjunction with a "hall sensor" for traction control.
