    Default cal scooby project

    well started it yesterday in the garage, after finding someone with a recovery truck i managed to get the car to the garage and get the spanners out

    pic of the veccy saying farewell to scooby doo


    took a couple of pics before i started


    the bigger sti spoiler will be going on when its finished


    started stripping front end down



    then undid engine mounts and jacked engine up and removed the sump to see the damage (pics to follow) found the first shell on crank baggy obviously the reason for the knocking as its a common fault on scoobys, with the oil pump being cr*p on them the shells go and you get a horrible knocking, so im going to have to remove the engine strip it down and check it doesnt need a new crank or whether i can send this one for repair, would be good if i could get away with new shells and a repaired crank but wont know fully untill i have stripped it down, as the heads could be damaged aswell . so back up top i went and disconnected all fuel pipes, air filter, unbolted turbo, removed intercooler and removed bellhousing bolts. just waiting on the engine lift which im gettin tomorrow and the engines out then next weekend i will strip it down and i can then tell whether its worth repairing or gettin a reccon engine. this is how it looks at the minute just waiting in the garage all alone lol



    will update tomorrow when engines out with some better pics
