I get that a lot it seems like, a lot of the stuff I've done isn't that obvious. I have another set of small ZKW's, don't tempt me

Yeah I would have repainted them and kept them for winter wheels but I wanted some $$.

So we got the axle in! Put in some Redline oil and a new gasket, replaced the brake junction block and master cly only to find out that I had a leak from a caliper line, DOH. Took the car for a test drive, alternator isn't charging. Nice. I was really about to throw in the towel. Poking around the alternator I randomly found my boost issue I have been chasing for months, a loose wastegate actuator bracket, that was actually really encouraging.

Here's some pictures of the differential carnage. Much worse than I originally thought, I'm surprised it was still driving.



I thought I just broke one spider gear, I was wrong



note the planetary gear on the right



note the ring gear teeth at the bottom and the chunk out of the carrier



this is the other side of the carrier, it also has a chunk out of it as well as a missing spider gear and chunks out of the other 3. the pinion shaft is completely loose

A lot of burnouts I guess? I'm not really sure, what killed it was a fairly mild pull from a dead stop while turning, I only lost traction for 1-2 seconds before it went bang.

I had been hearing some gear whine at cruise for about a year but it came and went sporadically and wasn't very loud, must have been a long time coming .

I think this car would be much more enjoyable for you if it had an m46.

Looks great though. Those wheels top it off in my opinion.

Thanks!

I don't want a m46 unless I can maybe find one that's 100% known good I'd rather not mess with it, the whole overdrive idea puts me off and the AW71 can take a lot more abuse. After what I did to the rear end I can only imagine what I could do to a m46. T5 maybe. My school/work commute is in traffic up hills and downtown so the whole manual thing doesn't really sound all that appealing.

That said I have a decent flat flywheel and a pedal cluster I've been keeping around because I know at some point I'll do a swap.

Dang, you've done a lot of work to your car, nice! How long did it take you to pull your differential? I can imagine a solid axle is easier than IRS. I'm removing my IRS rear end this summer, it's been whining super loud for about 6 months now.



Dat theme song doh. when is the english version coming out? huehuehue

Pulling it wasn't that bad, I think we did it in a slow 3-4 hours maybe, took way too long to swap everything over, putting it back on probably the same amount of time plus bleeding brakes and stuff, never got the e-brake stuff hooked back up.

Car is totally fixed, back on the road. Drove it to a meet last night, can post some pictures from that if anyone has interest.





Got started on another project, making the bumper quick release, I know yes a 83-85 bumper comes off in a few minutes, but mine now comes off in about 10 seconds. Josh did most of the work here.



Setting up the 4 pin Deutsch connector.



Re-wiring the Hella's.



I love drilling more holes in the bumper.



Hood pins through the bumper and fender, studs sit in washers on the bumper shock.



We make a lot of trips to the hardware store.



John drove because Josh is crippled.



Volvos' on the way!



spotted a sweet subaru.



BEER:30

And now my car functions as a car and I can drive it every day, 10/10

Looks like you're still missing one of the centre caps, eh? I've been going mad trying to find a set for my TSW Blades (same caps). Argh.
