Quick few questions..

Hello, after having a play this evening fitting my calipers, is it okay to swap the inlet and the bleed nipple over as Iím unsure which is which and just used the cleaner face for the banjo fitting,

Also after removing the tunnel cover, found a rubber joint in between the prop and gearbox, should I use this with my bec build or just buy the prop with one,
Unsure if I could use it to be honest, plan on using a premade two piece prop, also do bailey Morris limited make a prop with a shock reducer thing :S. Sorry canít think of the proper name.

I have noticed in general the drillings for both inlet and the bleed screw is the same and seem interchangeable. Usually you'd put the bleed screw at the top. What you show in the picture looks fine, why are you considering changing things?

As for the rubber coupling, depends on its condition and if you can get a replacement in the future

Bin the rubber prop Sierra bit. You new prop with have torque tube aka shock reducer thingy. Bailey did mine for my Avon with 919 engine was great. Just be careful on angles from prop adaptor to the diff. Eg not straight and not more than 5 degree angles between joints they advised.

If you haven't yet try make a removable cradle for the engine that way you can lift in and out with two people easy enough. Don't have a fixed top end it will make your life hell later on.

I had a cradle top for mine and fixed bottom mounts and I replaced the engine in under 2 hours with just me and a mate.

Good luck





Thanks

Thanks jossey, I was planning on selling all my running gear, was just unsure whether I should keep it or not.

And for the calipers in the picture Iíve actually changed them around swapping o/s to n/s because the handbrake cable wouldnít have it, the nipples are now underneath but Iíll take the calipers off to bleed it, I changed the inlets over as one face was more pitted and wouldnít seal on the banjo washer

If the calipers can swap from side to side, thatíll put your nipples the right way up with the good faces for the banjos.

Only problem then is that the handbrake cable wonít reach at the awkward angle, donít have a problem bleeding them off the car, just wanted to be sure I could use either port.
Thanks again.

MK Engineering modified (shortened) my Sierra propshaft to suit the Indy. The rubber doughnut item disappeared!

Didn't miss it one bit myself - the cars are more noisey than their donor cars anyway!
