    Re: cossied mk 2 lotus cortina

    Had a few teething problems,one being the turbo trying to split

    itself in half by losing the ex housing bolts!

    So I took the turbo off last sunday and partially stripped it ,

    Got some new bolts,drilled them and refitted them and lock

    wired them tight.

    Jobs for this w/e include replacing /tightening bell housing

    bolts,finish off my new modified breather system and change

    the oil and filter if I get time,although it is mothers day and

    my dads birthday on sunday!

    Re: cossied mk 2 lotus cortina

    Some good news at last!

    I have 'won' a 205 block on the bay with standard bores

    which will take the new pistons I already have.

    Gonna get the block honed and wire ringed by my old mate

    Ike,then hopefully pull the motor out of the tina in the next

    couple of weeks and strip it.

    Gonna use all of the rest of the gear that I already have in

    the motor,and Ike is gonna run it on the dyno for me when

    its back in the tina.

    Hopefully this lot should turn out quite cheap and I will

    repair the 200,long studded,sprayjetted block if I ever

    have any cash!

    Will keep the thread updated with pics
