Re: Nate's Manxter Build

IT RUNS!!! :mrgreen: Finished building the exhaust today and got the balls to turn the key, fired up instantly and sat there and purred like a kitten, really stoked with the note of the exhaust, (I built a unequal length header system for that subaru burble) it is a tad too deep but I have a low vol...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

I bought a shortened set of headers in stainless to build my exhaust from, really not impressed with them at all, I have never seen somebody so unimpressed with their tig welds that they have to be ground down.. and they are still too bloody long and foul on the cage. So it looks like I will just ha...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Started mounting the cooling lines and the heater lines today but ran out of them rubber coated 'p clamps' Got one side done though. Had to crack out the hole saw again and punch two holes in the side of the car just in front of the pedals so I can get coolant to the yet to be fitted heater. Ended u...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Well I had the worst couple of weeks I have ever had, my wife and I had to put our beloved cat Misha down, she was almost 12 years old we have had her since she was 3. She got a virus and pneumonia just after we got back from holidays and just couldn't shake it. We are absolutely gutted. This has af...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

I have two fill points, a low one just under the air box on the suction side, and the high point in the car on the pressure side. I also have a bleed point on the radiator. Hopefully that'll be enough to get all the air out. I don't have any bleeds on the heater/bypass lines but I think I won't need...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Had a big day yesterday with my mate helping me weld up the cooling lines and a couple of small fittings for the heater. Had another day in the garage today, mounted up the coolant lines, made up most of the heater lines as well, made the harness for the fan, hooked up a switch so I can turn the fan...

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Got a far bit done this weekend even though it was 40 degrees in the garage.. Made up the mount for the bonnet, refit the cv's and axles and checked their clearance, all good thankfully. I went to fit my stiffer type 3 torsion bars that I bought years ago but it turns out I only have one stiffer spr...

Re: This Years Event Calender

As soon as mine is reliable again I will be driving the #%@# out of it. So I will keep an eye on the ones that are closer to Sydney. But I want to do valla when that comes around. Wouldn't mind meeting some like minded buggy dudes too.

Re: Nate's Manxter Build

Looking good! Like the bead roller, looks as though it does the job nicely :) What size pipe did you end up running up to the rad? It worked well, I didn't even bother softening the pipes. Stock was 38mm I stepped it down to 32mm. Figured the extra pressure and added volume of the Subaru will make ...
