Hello, am alive.
Also slight ramble warning, sleepy brain rn
Haven’t got the old box out yet, but it’s close. There’s a lot of stuff to take out before I could even touch it. Hoses, wires, metal… stuff. Lots of stuff. Even the subframe needs to be taken off at least partially.
Anyhow, here’s a few (bad) pics
I haven’t shown you guys the engine, so here you go. It’s missing a few bits from the right of the pic and there’s a bit of a mess overall
Bonnet left the server, since it opens the wrong way round. Got a lot more space to work with by taking it off.
And here’s my old air filter. It looks homemade… and it probably is. There’s a hole, so it’ll be replaced too.
Some other stuff will be made as well, maybe an oil change and fixing a coolant leak. It’s leaking from a sensor of some kind on the side of the radiator, maybe the water temp sensor.
Why is it taking a long time? Well, I’m inexperienced. I’ve never done anything of this scale except in MSC But hey, there’s only one way to get better: doing the thing.
Oh and the old gearbox oil. It was interesting to say the least. Best way to experience it yourself would be:
-Go to automation
-RAM THAT DAMN FLAKE SETTING TO THE ATMOSPHERE
Yeah, lots of metallic flake in that oil. Haven’t got a pic currently.
With that, signing off for today I guess.
Haha I lied here’s some more text
Okay now I’ll be going bye
