Default No more sloppy stick !

Popped my new mount into frame and tightened everything up this morning

gearbox mount.jpg

Took her for a little test drive after and the difference is amazing

I supported the gearbox with a bottle jack and with the new rubber mount in I had to jack it up quite a bit to get the bolts on the sub-frame to reach. Quite surprised at how much the old mount must've been sagging.I spose after 23 years you would expect that !

A very easy job ( time consuming bit was wire brushing and painting sub-frame ) which has given great results

Cheers, Mark

Do you have an "old skool" battery charger Mark? If so, it could save you a lot of wire brushing :

https://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/...leaning.12686/


Before ^^^^^


After ^^^^^

I've used it for all sorts of things, works incredibly well, even freeing seized adjusters on Rover rear trailing arms that are notorious for rusting solid in their bores. It's also a slightly restorative process in as much as it plates good steel onto the work piece, only a microscopic amount but sometimes enough to make the difference between a rough finish and a smooth finish.
The beauty of it is, once set up you can leave it to work overnight and it doesn't remove any metal from the work piece or damage any plating already on it.

Not connected how that article describes, no but if you have a spare battery, you can connect the charger to the battery as normal then connect the battery +ve to the sacrificial anode (piece of scrap steel) and the battery -ve to the workpiece, that would work. That way the battery would be supplying the power to electrolysise the water in the tub with the work piece and the charger would simply be topping up the battery.

Alternatively it might be an idea to invest in an "old skool" battery charger, although the CTEK units are good, they won't deal with a completely flat battery so if you ever leave your lights on or similar, you're snookered.

Alternatively if you have a 12V power supply (not a switched mode type) you could potentially use that as well.

A secondhand charger might be an alternative as well :

Some people have even used DC arc welders to provide the power when de-rusting something big - how big i dread to think as my 10A charger has coped with most stuff i've done!

My father in Law has a big old skool charger Dave so I will borrow that ( for ever )and give it a go. I also have plenty plastic tubs to try it in

Default Battery tray

Got my battery tray welded so got a couple of coats of POR 15 on it and also put a metal battery holder tray in.

Not sure whether to prime it and rattle can in Regent Red or just leave it black

Holes ( that shouldn't be there ) are now gone
