I can confidently say it went well very well, well kinda! Cranked the engine for a while with fuel pump disconnected and plugs out, watched the oil pressure rise and stabilise. Put the plugs in, IC back on and nervously turned the key, couple of cranks and she fired up straight away Oil pressure fine, timing bang on, power steering noisey sorted that later, all air locks removed. Ran it to operating temp, rad fans kicked in around 95c once they went off, killed the engine and let it cool before checking the fluids.
This is genuinely the forst startup as you can here from the powersteering pump again uploaded in HD but looks pants
Ok so now heres the problems, engines got to come back out for some strange reason when pressing the clutch pedal down a grinding noise can be heard?? almost like trying to select a gear when clutch not used! Ive ordered an endoscope to see whats going on before removing, I can only think when I man handle the box back on with the trans still atached to the box ive damaged the splines on the pressure plate? What I dont get when the engines running, no grinding noises can be heard only when the clutch is starting to be pressed, id say after half of the travel?
Turned engine off and selected first, started engine up let it idle but could hear some strange sound from the near side rear wheel while its rotating a clicking tapping noise is present, think its a wheel bearing issue, grrrr, possibly not fitted it right or its faulty. All 4 brand new from ICP..
Finally while it was in gear I expected all 4 wheels to rotate, but the front drivers doesnt? is this something I should be concerned about?
Other than that alls good The idle after doing the throttle bodies is bang on, throttle response is crisp too.
Dodgy quality video of OBD Scan Tech data while it was running, I did upload in HD but looks pants for some reason?
