Single Status Update
Hello All again,
I am now confident I have everything sorted to fit the RX8 5 speed gearbox to my AJ30 engine. I have had it all together, it turns over on the starter nice and easy and the clutch operates/springs go over centre mid travel of the slave cylinder.
The parts I have used are:
- Freddy's adaptor plate
- Mondeo flywheel
- Jaguar Starter Ring
- Jaguar starter motor
- Mondeo clutch cover
- Generic 23 spline Ford clutch plate (sold as a TVR spare)
- Mazda 6 slave cylinder
- Crankshaft to flywheel spacer
- Crankshaft pilot bearing and flywheel locator adaptor
- Adapted RX8 clutch arm pivot
All that's left to do is to get the flywheel and spacer statically balanced.
I have now moved on to making the air intake plenum chamber. I am going for a classic looking plenum chamber sitting on top between the cam covers.
The next update will be in a while as I am now back working abroad to get more pennies!
I have attached some pics to show what I have been up to. I am very close to having a kit for full rebuild.
