Got the replacement bushing in the mail so took a few hours to install it. Its a redesign that is being used by rally people here.

Last weeks have been busy, did not update the topic because we did allot but with little result. the calipers where stuck ..BAD. So it took allot of time to get all the pistons out. Most of the rubbers had gone bad so most of the calipers had been overhauled.



One back caliper was broken beyond repair so we had to look for a replacement, we learned that ATE (mostly Girling) isn't common so that made things more difficult. Found a good used one and used that.



After that all the lines have been replaced and some of the steel lines too as they where in a bad shape. Putting it all back the distributorblock got numb in one side so I had to source that again.



With a new one fitted we could finally bleed the brakes , turns out the master brake cylinder was shot, replaced it with one I had in storage, that one leaked.



Being few 100 euro's down the drain on new lines, pads, caliper, ,liters of fluid, etc I was not exited to buy a new cylinder so I turned to my stach of parts and noticed that the 700/900 series cilinder looks allot like the 145 one (also ATE)





Turns out that a 960 one fits with no modifications ! bleeded the brakes and have great pedel response now! This should have been the last APK points so its now just waiting for a moment when I can visit the garage and get the plates renewed

Nice! What year 960 did that m/c come off of? (I"m about to rebuild the Girling calipers on my 142 and build new lines, but the m/c is the questionable part at this point.)

This one came off a 94 960, pre facelift. However initially I fitted the one from a 740 turbo from 1986. Fitment is the same but the location for the lines is different.

I already bought plugs for the holes planning to redo the lines when I saw the 960 one would fit with no mods to the lines at all.

If your brakes need overhauling I would do the M/C for sure, it would have saved me allot of fluid and time, I must have done 7 cycles of bleeding the last weeks. Do it ones, do it good.

For reference here are photo's of the 740 one with the plug

Passed APK few days ago, had to adjust the Ebrake and that was the last bit for me to pass.
Driving home however the car did not wanted to start after i picked something up, the alternator went bad (i thought)

Sold most of my 140 stuff so no old style alternator in stock. I found on a dutch forum that the Opel Astra has an alternator that can be modified to fit the B20/B18 engines and can be had cheap in junkyards.

Today i helped a friend move and after that i drove past a wreckeryards.. but i was not dressed for wrenching so i decided just to have a little look ... So 30 minutes later i walked away like this:





Exited i got cracking at home, i had to cut one mounting off




after that i had to redo some wiring and used the Astra bracket to mount the whole thing using only one washer


Satisfied i decided that the 145 deserved a little present, 240 armrest with cupholders, there are some more spoil items in the back for later

Trew in a radio yesterday and already drove around 100km with the Car. Steering is really light compaired to other 140s i have had and the IPD bar improves the ride too.

Needless to say, fun and practical car. Still doing construction on the house and garden and always looking for parts so this should be a handy one

just saw the mounting pins on te new caliper, i assume you mounted them correctly after the foto? the black spring on the pins must be seated in the caliper to secure the pin. (oftewel die pennen moet nog een 5mm dieper geramd worden)

And the main dampening spring is in reverse it looks it will almost hit the disc.

Yeah this was before final montage, the pins are in place (oftewel 5mm verder geramd )

What do you mean with main damping spring? (Achterveer i assume?)

Bought 5 cans of 2 euro yellow paint a few weeks back and today i was going to try to paint one piece of the car and see if i would like it I ended up sanding more than i could paint so the result could be better.

When i was done i decided to paint the window trims black in advanced for the windowtint film. For the price of the paint i'm pretty satisfied

sanding


little primer


Selfy because i felt like a " the division" agent



3 cans


out of paint

Done with one side of the car.



I have been helping a local artist out with his Corvette from time to time and i asked him to make something for me on the other side of the car. Turned out great! many personal things in there :-)

Use the car to support my trackdays, haul parts and tools.
Unfortunately somebody ran into the 145 with his trailer.

My friend took the 145 for a ride and had a little bobo with it.
Replaced the arm, new bushings and wheels.

after that repainted the rest of the car to match, drove the car for less than 2000km in 2 years.
Going to see if I can sell it
