So you're there happily modding along, in the nice sun on a Saturday. You think everything is going fine and productive, and feel nothing could go wrong..
then that nasty thing happens when you think oh crap.. something isnt right, somethings missing, something isnt working.. the fear you get, the heart wrenching and gut turning feeling almost brings a tear to your eye..
welcome to the scary side of modding!
My situation today..
Spent the last few days putting the engine back in, putting the subframe back on, connecting the wires/gear linkages etc etc.
Then came the time to test the clutch and fill the fluids etc. so there I am, testing away.. hmm, the clutch isnt working.
Mess around a bit more, still nothing, theres no pressure what so ever, and the clutch is light as a feather. Oh crap!
If its what i think it is, it means engine out job again (or atleast subframe, half an engine..) because you cant get to replace/check one of the seals from the outside.
Anyway, after walking around the garden, praying to the many vauxhall gods.. I try again. nope! nothing, damn you vauxhall gods!
so, i take seal out at the top, have a bit of a fiddle(with the seal you dirty people) and then the clutch begins to get pressure, but theres still fluid going all over the floor. a bit more messing and the seal was found not to be correctly in, so thank God, not the vauxhall ones (i hate them now) but all was ok. (i hasten to add, i did a little funny run around the drive after it was ok )
But the feeling inside of me nearly died! long story but some of you will have been there.. So whats your scary modding situations?
