Ok, here's some pic's of how i mounted the fuel pump side of things


you'll notice the fuel filter has had some use, that'll be changed when i service the truck after its been running a few hundred miles. As it used to be diesel, i've drained the tank as much as possible then blowed down the lines. I'll be filling her up to the top with petrol so that any diesel in there will be well thinned down Wink
Pos and neg wires go through the wall the same as sender

Now to connect the positive wire to fuse panel, you need a bullet style connector. Now i removed this from a wire loom i did'nt need. you just need to push the side fins in slightly so it pops out the plug.

That bullet connector then goes into position 14 of the Black D plug

I've placed the negative in the multi chassis tap above the fuse panel

Before i dropped the rear back down, thought i'd swap my shocks for the koni's.
Always thought i had beetle shocks already on the back til i removed 1. They was standard jobbies so i ended up sorting some more shims to reduce the 12mm eyelets on the beetle koni's to caddy 10mm. No probs as i had spare pipe from previous caddy's i played with Very Happy
10mm bolt without shim

with

Fitted

I then turned my attention to removing the rear exhaust box as it needs a reducer. Now that was fun getting that out from under the truck with the limited room Evil or Very Mad
Got there in the end anyway then sorted a reducer. markgtx is now gunna take it work to seem weld it. Could do it with my mig but believe it'll break after so much vibration over time.

Just the engine wiring to sort so i can get her running now then its just a case of fitting the rad and all the ancillaries and trim.

Done a few more bits today
Dremelled out the locating peice on abf dizzy cap so i could rotate it so the leads plugged in at the top therefore giving me clearance from the M/C


also replaced the 16v airbox for an mk1 gti jobbie, trimmed down a little so the bonnet can fasten down.
servo to inlet pipe modified
throttle, speedo and clutch cables now on
igntion coil, ecu and amplifier now in place
radiator fitted.
just the header bottle and wiring loom left.
Will be doing that tommorrow Smile

ISV control unit still had'nt arrived in the post so decided to go collect another from someone else.

got home just before 7pm this evening and attempted to get the girl going Smile

Being rushed off my feet all day, was getting a little stressed til steve(skinhead) turned up and chilled me out.

She would'nt start by herself so we towed her down the road to jump her.

And guess what!!

She only bloody works!! cheers

She's got a few teething problems and needs setting up properly as she did'nt want to tick over, was very lumpy.
adjusted the dizzy timing to make no better.
then decided to pull the throttle switch plug off and hey presto she ticks over. set the idle screw so it sits just below 1k rpm

only just put my tools away and now off in shower, be up in the morning for work at 5am Shocked
Yep i well knackered but has been worth it just to finally drive my truck again Razz
will add some pic's 2moro, 1 of my drivers rear tyre that shredded on the untouched wheelarch lip Very Happy
whoops, just dint wanna stop driving haha

Oh and for all as to how its wired, she running full kr engine loom. Nothing to it lol!

Few pic's for you all Very Happy

The New heart

Untidy i know :rolleyes:. will clean it up and hide wires in time Razz

Here's 1 of my drivers rear tyre after a test run round the block Shocked
Have'nt rolled or cut the arch lips back yet lol. if you look closely you'll see where the rubber came off in strands and hit the paintwork lol!


Now that all the interior wiring is sorted, i refitted the lower dash parts and centre console. i fitted the carpet and seats over the weekend whilst waiting for the postie(1st isv box still is'nt here). Also sorted the tunes out.

I do have red doorcards aswell but i need to make 2 new speaker pods before i can fit them.

As its been stood a while, i gave it a good wash then claybarred it all down to remove grit and tar.

Booked her in for its MOT this friday along with a tune up to get the timing spot on ready for weekends shows.

Fingers crossed cheers

Well after constant working on the caddy the past week when i could, i managed to get it sorted for my target time of the past weekends shows.

After doing some final bits on my truck and skinheads on friday, i set off for Action early evening.
Got as far as chatteris before turning round due my tyres still scrubbing even at 40 lol
Stuck on a pair of psluts on the rear just to get me from A to B.

All was going well til i eventually broke down on the A14 coming to rest on the grass verge of the A510 to wellingbororough slip road.

Was no way of sorting it in the dark next to a busy road so made a few calls. Thankfully i was an hour or so ahead of Tiz and Curtis heading for Edition.
Still no luck so realising we had no towing facillities, we Cut tiz's rear seatbelt and towed me to edition.
To say the least it, it really was'nt a good look. Odd wheels, hazards and a seatbelt tow rope is'nt going to catch on and be the lastest scene thing to do IMO lol.
Things got even better when me and gem discovered her folks did'nt put the poles back in the bag for our tent Rolling Eyes
Big thanks to emma and brad for not only lending us a spare tent but helping put it up aswell. Dont think the truck would've been too comfortable!!.

I did manage to find a replacement fuel pump for a tenner on the autojumble as it was the suspected fault. Still did'nt work though so the next day, bought another metering head and tried that. After numerous attempts at checking common faults on k-jets, i gave up and called the RAC before i started breaking more bits lol.

RAC man only checked out all the basic's i already did and resulted on there being crap in the tank from it previously being a diesel.
Flatbed lorry was then ordered.

Over the weekend i did a few bits like polished the chrome front grill and fitted it along with the rear splits as i figured it should atleast look good lol. Also wiped down the previous weeks finger prints, did'nt have time at home to polish her up so was going to do that at the shows.

I did get a few pic's of it in its current look


Trailer queen anyone lol

Recovery Guy loved it and was really good at looking after it too

Just like to say a big thanks to Tiz for getting me to a show and possibly fooking his own engine in the process.
Steve(skinhead raver) for keeping me chilled out
emma for the use of tent

And most of all Gem for putting up with my moody a55!.


Anyway, now the trucks back on my drive after finally getting home at approx 10pm sunday night. i will be stripping the whole fuel system down including the removel of the tank to clean it out of any possible sh1t built up.
Will also be doing my audi/mk2 16v brake upgrade so i can re-use the original valver dizzy cap to get the timing sorted properly so i dont have to rely on dodgy clips holding the abf cap on.
Now that i know the engine itself is all good, i'll also treat it to a service.

Also noticed some peeps dont realise what a brand spankin new tailgate is worth so, to preserve it and also affending peeps heads lol, i'll be robbing the blue trucks tailgate to do a cool daily jobbie.
I have a plan and should be as cool as the NO FEAR eyes tailgate i had a couple of years ago.

Over and out Sleep
