Re: Project T5 360.

Well it's been another 6 months or so with no activity. I've been trying to save some dollars up so I can get onto the suspension parts, a smaller turbo and getting a diff made up. The current daily was eating up most of my free time and money but I think we'll be getting back into the old girl very...

Re: Project T5 360.

What broke in the clutch? I am also worried about putting a HD clutch in for the B230FT, it has to be heavier than the 940 because the plate is smaller. I'm using a new aftermarket cable, but the plastic connector at the pedal is a weak spot. There is a metal version of same used in the 440. I'm ha...

Re: Project T5 360.

Yeah sorry it's been a bit hectic with the move to Brisbane and what not. I got a new daily and the guy that did mod plates on it said he'd be able to mod plate the engine in the Volvo so there's hope yet. Something broke in the clutch on the last day of the defect notice so plans are an eccentric s...

Re: Project T5 360.

Not much has happened as of recent. I've installed an oil cooler, for which one of the hoses has started leaking quite badly so driving tonight was out of the question. Dash lights have been fixed via a bridge to another ignition source to the dash, and also I got a temp sensor in. Although it's bet...

Re: Project T5 360.

That looks terrible! Doesn't match the rest of the project, which is great! :D Always thought a 5 cylinder was much longer than a redblok, but the lenght seems to be the same (bad ideas are growing now.. n/a 2.5 20v :D ) I was going through the pics and noticed on this picture there are two rods co...

Re: Project T5 360.

I think your challenge has been laid down for ultimate sleeper. http://www.hooning.com.au/crazy-550hp-bmw-318is-terrorizes-the-streets/ Haha, I don't think the rear end of the old girl would handle that sort of power :lol: Anyway, sump and pick up have been modified, we have oil pressure, but oil i...

Re: Project T5 360.

Alright. Got the engine out, and split the block. Big ends and mains look all good so I re sealed it with the new sealant. I'm flying out tomorrow and can't be bothered to work on it today so dad might do something while I'm on my holiday but if not I'll be getting back into it on the 6th. This time...

Re: Project T5 360.

Funnily enough, I just killed an 850 (2.5 10v NA) engine through lack of oil pressure. I suspect the pump has died. My D5 is also slow to build pressure from a cold start...as if a one-way valve has failed. Hasn't got any worse in 85k miles, and no-one seems to know the cause, so I'm just not worry...

Re: Project T5 360.

Yeah that's a bit worrying about the pressure fluctuation. The only thing I can think of is the above, unless it's a pump issue? Can't see that being temperamental though. Video looks good dude, I'm jealous. Yeah it's got me puzzled. We pulled off the sump last night, changed the pick up o-ring and...

Re: Project T5 360.

with the IC pipe to me it looks like the pipe needs trimming back a little to help it line up better. The oil pressure could be something to do with the seal on the oil pump? Have a look on T5D5 forum, I'm sure it is a known problem with a known solution. Well it's weird cause it has pressure when ...

Re: Project T5 360.

340pw Good job dude Cheers mate :D Looking good and glad its back together again. Does the IC pipe need sorting? looks a bit kinked in the photo Yeah I managed to straighten it out a little bit. It was a cheap one off e-bay and didn't have the nylon weaved into it so it was just floppy silicone. Fu...

Re: Project T5 360.

That rod does look a real mess Yeah it took a good beating. Anyway the weekend was full of nostalgia. Feels like it runs a lot smoother this time as well. Next thing to come will be a video of it on the road. http://i750.photobucket.com/albums/xx146/jere_aka_ld50/WP_20131129_001_zpsf4780b45.jpg htt...
