Finished (first ever use of a smiley, to celebrate)
After resetting the immobiliser by disconnecting the battery, the car started on the first turn. Major relief!
Caterham 160s have a live axle borrowed (and modified) from the Suzuki Jimny. I hunted high and low for something the right diameter and shape to tap the axle oil seal in. It's a tight fit, and needs to be done without mashing up the rather delicate seal.
Things are progressing nicely on my Caterham 160 build, and the number of calls to Derek have dwindled completely...
Progress is on my blog, with lots of pics for future builders.
Due to a chassis problem (now mostly fixed), Chris from the Dartford factory came over today. We went through various things, which was really helpful mid-way through the build.
Here's some photos of the Suzuki engine, plus Suzuki gearbox.
I haven't been rushing - well, that's pretty obvious one week after arrival! But the front is looking tidy, and now onto the engine bay...
My 160 has finally arrived after about 9 months wait.
