So the work to take the RallyCooper apart has started. I made a short timelapse of it:
Japp, då var det dags för besiktning…
Åkte till garaget tidigt i morse, bytte oljefilter (insatsfilter), fyllde olja, satte på hjulen, sänkte ner och rullade ut, bilen startade, tutan funkade inte så den fixades, åkte o tankade, körde fem mil till besiktningen, bromsen tog lite väääldigt långt ner och typ bara på höger fram, stannade på macken innan besiktningen, justerade ut bromsbackarna runt om, sedan funkade bromsarna. Åkte till besiktningen, kom in, enda bilen så tre tekniker besiktigade. Gick ganska bra, bara två tvåor: glapp i en spindelled och trasig skyltlykta. Co-halt 0,5!
Nu ska jag skruva upp förgasaren och sedan blir det högertrafikomläggningsträff(ar) i morgon.
Yippie! The Mini Moke passed the test at the MOT- station yesterday. I hsd done some service to fix the things they complained on last time:
1.changed brake cylinder in the back and changed all brake fluid as I was on it, to have functioning brakes on all wheels and balanced side wise.
2. washed the engine to get rid of all oil and did a last minute wipe off to remove small drops of oil, to avoid complains of oil leaks
3. changed oil, oilfilter, airfilter and adjusted the carburettor to get a weaker mix and lower CO readings
It succeeded and it passed MOT. But that doesnt mean there is no work left. First I have to adjust carburettor to get a richer mix, before any valves are burnt. And then there are some rust in the floor to take care of.
But that can wait
Today is official start of preparations for NSR2017! First wash before driving into workshop.
The rally is 24-27 October this year.
Guess there will be some things to fix on the RallyCooper before departure….
Time flies and it is soon time for another November Sun Run trip, the rally in France that we have taken part of the last five years.
To make myself realise that I had to do something. So I bought a Halda Tripmaster TRM2 with plastic cover, for a good price.
Next step is to drive the car to the workshop and start work!
The other day i woke the African Moke after a time of hibernation. Seems to work fine, but it needs MOT before longer test runs. I hope to get it on the road within the coming weeks, main goal is Nordic Mini Meeting last weekend of July, just north of Stockholm.
