2nd puma 1.7 project

Post by demonskull13 » Mon Jun 19, 2017 2:28 pm

hi all im putting black diamond brakelines on my puma and so far have done the fronts
you will need

13mm brake line spanner for where pipe joins hose

small flathead screwdriver to take clip out

17mm spanner for big bolt on new brake lines

15mm socket to take clamp off suspension

11mm brakeline spanner for where hose goes into caliper

clingfilm for brake resivoir

dot 4 brake fluid

and a chisel to open old clamp up to pull old hose out and put around new braided line

to start with go around with wd40 to help undo everything
below wd40 on 11mm hose
Image
then wd40 on clamp
Image
then wd40 on pipe to hose
Image
then undo all very slightly so you will know they all will undo when changing
pipe to hose 13mm
Image
clamp 15mm
Image
then pull clip out with flathead screwdriver
Image
Image
Image
clamp off
Image
then with all else undone spin hose out of caliper have braided line ready to go straight back on the black diamond have 2 long lines and 2 shorter note the longer are for the front
Image
braided line into caliper
Image
then braided line into pipe make sure it flows same way as origonal hose put clip in and tighten bolt
Image
seperate origonal clamp from hoses i put in a vice and chseled them out didnt mark them but would not have mattered as they get chucked away anyway
Image
put bracket back on pop braided line in clamp with pliers macking sure there where you want them they had a rubber coler on saying black diamond so put that where it goes through the clamp
Image
then bleed the brakes

i forgot to say take top off the resivoir at the start and create vacum with cling film so youll loose less brake fluid

this is how i done mine i cant take any responsibility if someone does it wrong as i worked it out this way myself.

hope this helps people i will put the rears on here when i manage to do them.

Jason

next i have done for Christine is the rear bumper i have cut it to stop drag as air would gather in the back
so to start with i got my spare bumper as a practice below
Image
Then as i new the layout of the bumpers inards cut mine but left some of the inards to act as a deffuser i had to cut the square pices at the back so air could pass through below
Image
Image
Image
Then i tidyed it all up and used some spare rim blades oer the edges to make smooth and nice below

Hi all just changed the clutch in my puma and had flywheel skimmed and put a focus clutch in anyway.
so put everthing back together and the selector in the gearbox was sezed,
with help i found out how to fix this :
Very simple really undo the filler plug a few turns and also the drain plug then the selector will be fine.:
i know it sounds confussing as the filler at the front of the box and selector is in the rear but this worked for me:
i found this out from someone who had the same issue as me and found what to do by chance he had put new seals in and everthing till he found this out:
So if anyone has a sezed selector i advice to try this as only takes a few seconds to back the allen key bolt and drain plug out.
When i was trying to fix this i looked on hear for help and found a few people thought they had a bent selector that i thought mine could be that but wasnt so maybe if they had tried this it could have worked for them to.
so Anyway i hope this helps anyone else with a sized selector as it costs nothing.
So with that done with mine My puma (christine) is back on the road again.

Jason


:P 8-) :thumbs: :ok:

As i had the flywheel skimmed and complete new clutch it is better than ever very soft and performs great and i had planned in advance so had bought a second hand flywheel to get skimmed so the car would be off the road for a shorter time!

You could perhaps use Imgur or Flickr. Imgur works really easy, even better than photobucket if I say so myself.

so as i am teaching myself to weld as am doing a custom exhaust for the turbo i had some old metal lying around and thought it would be a good idea to create a groove to hold the exhaust parts in when i am building them this is what im doing
ImageMaking exhaust joining pieces by Jason Stretton, on Flickr
above is the 2 ends
ImageMaking exhaust joining pieces by Jason Stretton, on Flickr
above is one end ready to be welded to one of the ends
ImageMaking exhaust joining pieces by Jason Stretton, on Flickr
and above is the other end
ImageMaking exhaust joining pieces by Jason Stretton, on Flickr
and above is roughly where they will be welded together
below is the ends welded onto the metal piece to use as exhaust rest whilst welding exhaust pices

and then above the exhaust sections will slide in to be welded above
then below my practice of welding exhaust peices using the support i made
