Got the old maid running again!!!
« on: May 31, 2013, 19:06:07 PM »
Went out to my car today, car full of tools, engine mounts, relais and such... Removed the full steel engine mount, to discover my bolts are to short for the original mounts... So, full steel again, replaced my fuel relay, and its fuse... My mums seat ibiza with the jumpstart cables in front of it. Some hesitation, a few coughs, and she started, running on 6 cilinders from the beginning. Battery is dead, so when i removed the jumpstart cables the engine died pretty fast, but hey, she is running again!

Pushed her out for a quick wash, and a glimpse inthe sunlight, she is one sexy 4i...



Gonna buy me a new battery this week, and find a working alternator, get garage plates, and warm her up good, test the brakes and see if it is mot'able!
