My plan over the winter is to pull the engine and gearbox, so I'll do anything like that then - it'll be much easier out of the car!
When I was modding and selling the top mounts, I had plenty that had no oil leaks and when opened up, had no oil in either!Back on the road
After a bit of a fight I got the old pulley off and the new one on. Fecking thing, really didn't want to come off!
When it was all back together I took it for an initial run and was still feeling some vibration under hard acceleration I had before, even though I'd raised the car up a little. Tonight I raised it another 10mm at the front and went for another run, and I couldn't feel any more vibrations even at WOT. Lots of pull though! Back up to 14.7psi at around 6k when a short while ago was down at around 12.
So pretty happy overall before going to 1320 this week for the cam, 550's and tune.
I don't think I'll be changing anything else before 1320, but a new top engine mount is now on my list. Even though it's not bottomed out or evidence of oil, I noticed I could easily move the rubber back and forth when the engine was raised off it. Probably vibra technics road, and will look at the other mounts as well. I've still got 3 weeks until Snetterton so hopefully will be on by then!
