1st generation RX-7's / Another Boosted thread FB time....
« on: April 20, 2018, 11:12:45 AM »
Well, here we go again, wasnt old enough to drive when this car first hit the road...i was 12...lol....dizzys and carbs eek dont know much about them...or FB's atall but not so long ago i knew nothing about rx8's or FD's so although daunting whats the worst that came happen....

so mate i bumped into a while back mentioned it time went on bumped into him again...then again then i got a phone number so arranged a viewing....no idea what i was looking at...then advise from Clive n Casey...another look. bit of hardballing with seller and i paid the full asking price..thats a first :)) but price was fair i believe.

so been stored in garage for 18 years, last 6 month outside....i can only find surface rust...very very nice underneath and starts hot and cold.

i will restore to oem...as best i can. need some paint in places and an mot. at present no clutch and brakes are stuck on...

Interior is very nice.

Boonet gold which have to rectified by either replacement or paint.

Blue 1 for sale too..no mot seen it start right up...pm if you want his number...seller is off grid computer wise and quite strict and looks like a seasoned negotiater....

have not picked up yet...truck off the road atmo.
so few piccys...

theres about 4 of these doing the rounds...unless im mistaken the adverts are writen by some silver tonque'd charmer who hasnt just kissed the Blarney stone he spent the night with it?

Car doesnt have a cage...so how can it have race history, let alone a front runner....and 260 bhp....i call BS!  :violent1:

Very good advert writing skills none the less.... :P

Managed to get a gearbox for my ca Colt gti 1993 ....( using online info satria gearboxes fit as essentially colts rebadged as proton satrias)...
so ive got the right gearbox and my old gearbox is out and on the garage floor.....however....replacement is cable operated and i need slave cylinder operated....the bell housing casting is different in the this 1 area alone....
so question...can i swap bell housing? i can strip duff box as dead anyway but if i pull bell housing off im not gonna gears and shafts falling out everywhere?

my car is 1 of 11 left so all though worthless i wanna save it and she goes well and this is actually her first breakdown as me as owner and in fact apart from the racket and lack of reverse gear still drives....
stripped plenty of gearboxes at work over the years just not a car gearbox...ratios are identical box is identical in every way except cable versus slave....
