Slow but rough


« Reply #540 on: 29 September, 2018, 09:22:19 AM »

A fair bit of progress and a minor setback....see pictures for the progress...no man should be without an engine crane...I fitted the gearbox to the engine roped it up to the crane at a jaunty angle and a couple of hours later it was all back in place. the set back is with the brakes as the rear passenger cylinder has leaked and gummed up the drum making it impossible to push the car by my self. The older readers of this saga will recall I replaced the seals about 3 years ago but they have obviously deteriorated all by themselves without ever being used Hmmm...Hopefully the linings can be saved and we just need new seals in the cylinders or is it that the material the seals are made from are not up to the job. I used Dot 4 fluid could this have caused it? Be interested to hear if anyone else has had this problem as I think I will have to replace the whole lot. Angry
Slow but rough
bright spot I have a new neighbour who is building an Austin special and could not resist coming over to see what the Appia was  Cheesy

Clarkey, this is a long running and detailed thread, I must do it all justice and read through from start, knowing how difficult and frustrating,how slow restoring a car can be, I take my hat off to you!

Progress indeed - start her up and take her for a drive tomorrow ?

Putting the engine/box in like that is quite scary, but works well - did you have to remove the engine mounts ?

Hi all
bit more done yesterday so just a few connections and linkages to connect along with the propshaft and an exhaust. The engine/gearbox went back in with the engine mountings on but we had a few issues with the engine crane being in the garage so I could not get the height on the hook end and the car was not high enough to give clearance underneath to allow the end of the gearbox to drop down at the right angle. So with a bit of cursing and leavering with bits of wood it all went in perhaps another pair of hands and eyes might have helped.

I have found that in the past. Pulling an engine out, gravity is with you. Putting an engine back in, gravity always seems to be against you.

Fun and games today...collected some bits and bobs from Hartlepool yesterday so decided to put the rear wheels on a pair of dollies...as you can see from the pic the Appia had other ideas and promptly whizzed down the drive jettisoned a dollie and came to a halt in the middle of the road...a push from a couple of the builders had the car back on the drive so I thought I'll get the handbrake to work . Checking the floods of fluid coming from the rear cylinder revealed a set of seals that looked OK but the bores of the wheel cylinder were rough and corroded so I guess the seals could not maintain good enough contact. Anyway after all the drama we have a working handbrake and to stop further leaks I clamped the rear flexi hose...the clutch and throttle are connected...all electrics are connected even managed a couple of turns on the key with the flat battery...pumped all the tyres up the hard way...feel that burn...put the battery on charge and it was getting dark so pushed the little beast back into the garage with the dollies under the front wheels.

You need to tie it up like you would a boat, and maybe hang some fenders.

At least you had the weather, and some handy "muscle" to push it back...

Frank suggested a winch bolted to the garage floor...I should listen to Frank more...Anyway today was frustrating as the exhaust system had a front pipe for a S2/3 so that went back in the garage and when I went to put the propshaft on one of the spiders was absent so I could only connect one end...However the battery had been on charge for at least 15 hours so I thought "Why not?"
The poor starter motor could not spin the engine fast enough to raise any oil pressure and started to get hot so we abandoned the attempt, however some petrol was drawn through so not a total failure. One of the builders offered to tow the little beast round the block with his JCB but as we only have the handbrake we know where that will end so I am looking to invest in a more powerful starter motor. Looks like we will have to wait till I get up to Hartlepool again and see if I can find the spider and a front pipe.

waiting for the new starter to arrive ...found the propshaft spider and an old front pipe of a smaller diameter so will have a go at putting them on over the next couple of days. I might have to whip the rear cylinders off and clean up the bores.

ps Matron said we have enough Appias about the place
