I've had a a couple of minor distractions, one of which will give some more comfort for the garage, which is a good thing...
(it's installed inside and painted now, it was outside to burn off the original paint)

Er, sorry...

So, I pulled the covers off to look at what I've still got left to do. First off was looking at all the starter gear gubbins. I'd bought all the bits I needed (needle roller bearing, starter clutch refub kit, etc) but hadn't realised what shabby condition both of the starter ring gears I had were in - rusty and skaggy, and in need of a good clean. So that I did. Also cleaned up the idler gear between the starter motor and ring gear, as that was truly horrible with bits of hard material in between the gears and teeth, which was only what I can assume to be bits of magnet from a disintegrated alternator?

Yes, you should! :D But stay safe and keep your social distances...

Got the starter clutch and ring gear all bolted together last night with the new rolelrs, springs and needle roller bearing, bolted it onto the rotor and slid it onto the end of the crank. Went to bolt it on and....


... where's the fucking bolt? Arses! :mad:

Anyways, it seems that the stripped bolt was not down to my ham-fistedness, not this time.
The aftermarket alternator rotor apparently needs to have the bolt shortened by about 4mm, and also needs a different thrust washer at the rear (one from an earlier 1100, with a smaller OD than the one for the 1100 Unitrak). The thrust washer, upon inspection, had been forced into a cone shape because it wasn't sitting in the recess at the rear of the ring gear, as the pic here shows...

New thrust washer purchased, and waited for, received, fitted and all back together again.
And then, once the starter and alternator gubbins was all back together, I happened to find a glass jar, containing some bits...


... yep, the very bits that I had fucked about trying to find, then ordering (wrongly), re-ordering (correctly), waiting for and then fitting...

This was followed by more fucking about trying to get the sprocket cover and clutch actuator fitted correctly, with some issues as the cover wasn't fitting flush to the crank cases... eventually traced down to the actuator not aligning with a slot in the cover. With this done, all was fitted, and the exhaust also bolted back on and lock-wired nice and neatly.
At which point I turned to the oiling system and realised that the exhaust would have to come back off again so I could but the oil return fitting into the turbo... Time and motion, time and motion...
