  1. In this episode, I start to look at the noise coming from the rear end of the car, and finally start to swap out the differential I didn't fit last year. My step-dad also pops in to lend a hand.
  2. In this episode, I pull out a smoking turbo, do some wheel alignment, and go out for some more test drives.
  3. In this episode, I try to make the interior a little nicer, and quieter, with the addition of carpet and some underlay for sound insulation.
  4. I've got lots of stuff going on around the house and garden, so not quite as much time to work on the Anglia - however, I did get the exhausts fitted back up, fiddled off-camera a little with the Oxygen sensor display thingy I've been building, and managed to get out for a bit of a test drive & start the road tuning.
  5. This time round, I do some fixes & tweaks based on last episode's test drive & subsequent discoveries about my four cylinder V6 engine...
  6. Weather over last couple of weeks has been terrible here, too, dt36! There's finally a break in the weather long enough for me to get the car out for a test drive in the Anglia! But.... it's never that simple, is it?
  7. In episode 33, I replace the banana-shaped driveshafts, and further investigate the horrible knocking noise coming from the engine. I've done something a little different this time - an unedited "first person" segment - please let me know if you like it, and would like to see this kind of thing again!
  8. In this episode, after the success of getting an MOT test and the car being road legal again, and the sadness of a burnt out coilpack connector and suspected failing engine, I fix the coilpack connector, and begin troubleshooting where that horrible knocking clunky noise is coming from.
  9. I've lost count. I think it's probably turning into a drinking game!
  10. This time round, I investigate what is going on with the clutch, after finding last time that it wasn't quite working right. Will I need to remove the engine *again* to sort it out?
  11. In these two episodes, I try (and fail) to get the car outside, but then succeed!
  12. I've spent most of the time between last episode and this working on redoing the radiator modifications. So in the absence of anything else, here's a slightly shorter video with an update of where I've got to.
  13. The chargecooler on the top of the engine has always been the highest point - I've always just used the pump to push air out of the system, which seems to have worked and the chargecooler itself always appears full of water when I've checked! In this configuration, I'll finally have enough flex on the hoses to actually place it lower than the reservoir!! The engine fans are controlled by the ECU via a solid state relay, and I've already programmed it to always be running at a slow speed when road speed is low. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks @sierra1off! Filming definitely does make the job take longer, getting camera angles, lighting etc right, plus re-recording segments because I realised I was talking rubbish! (Well, even more rubbish than what I left in the final edit!) Time for the next episode though, and in a bit of a change of pace, I try to cross a few outstanding tasks off my white board full of outstanding tasks!
  15. Haven't posted latest videos for a while (in case anyone here isn't yet subscribed on YouTube!) In this set of videos I make changes to the engine cooling and inlet air cooling systems.
  16. In Episode 22, I finish off the brake/clutch systems, and start to make plans about modifying the cooling system. In Episode 23, I need to make some new engine mounts to free up space to relocate the radiator.
  17. Whoops, forgot to post up the next videos! In Episode 20, I find out what I've broken with all the wiring changes: And in Episode 21, I see whether the car will start!
  18. In episodes 18 and 19, I begin to tackle the wiring (again)! It's quite a daunting task, and I've already had a couple of attempts at it over the years, so was very messy!
  19. In this episode, I tackle the heater, and it gets a massive upgrade from what I had before!
  20. In episode 16, the fuel and braking systems get mostly completed.
  21. It's all counted as views and watched minutes to me, even if it's over multiple sittings! Even if you save it up for a rainy day! Thanks for the feedback!
  22. In episode 15, I finish up the bulkhead metalwork, and move the fuel tank into its new location.
  23. In episode 14, I get a little extreme, and delve deeper into the tweaks!
  24. I'm still not sure yet that everything will work as expected, and once I've finished tinkering and tested everything, am planning long term to strip everything back again, and give it a full bare metal respray. At this time, I'll probably powder coat stuff rather than just Hammerite it But I've got another couple of cars in the queue before that happens!
