The Chronicles Of Area 34, formerly 55

It was that time of year again....

But I don't have the proper bolts to mount the bracket to the hub. Used two wheel studs because they have the same thread and I hope the proper bolts will arrive this week.

Coming along! Bolts/hardware on 140's is not Metric, if I remember correctly?

Spoiler looks good!

I really love that RS500. The new Focus's sold over here now have a similar nose, but no Volvo-powered model :(

It's a mix of metric and standard. Pretty annoying....

BTW Johann, I ordered new rubber brake lines in hopes that cures my bleeding issues. I'll let you know if things improve, should have them on this weekend.

Does your RS have the active grille shutters in front of radiator?

No is has an active Pro Alloy intercooler in front of the radiator.. :D

From what I can see it uses the same core as used in the C30T5.

Brakelines fixed and brakes are working properly now.

Car runs on LPG, did so when I received the car and the few miles I have driven with the car it has run on LPG. Also started on LPG. The fuel tank level showed empty all the time. Tried to switch to fuel once but the engine immediately died. All went well until the LPG tank ran empty. Put some fuel in the car, tank level came out of the corner but the car didn't start. Pulled the fuel line and cranked the engine but no fluid came through. As it appears the mechanical fuel pump has died.

Grabbed some leftover parts from the Opel Blitz and installed an electric pump connected straight to the battery.

The pump didn't keep running so at least I knew it didn't flood the engine. Started the car after that and the engine started immediately and ran pretty smooth.

Wondering now if I should give this setup a place or order a new mechanical pump to keep it simple.
