Re: Crankshaft damage - advice needed.

May be talking cobblers but my understanding of the woodruff key is simply to locate the rotor whilst it's being tightened. I'd guess that the rotor bolt wasn't tightened properly and when the starter button was pressed it sheared the key. Regarding the repair, if welding it, make up a copper disc t...

Re: Z1R Resurrection

Absolutely fantastic skills. Those CMM's are great, we had a little one but most the time it was the larger one that we measured car body shells with that we used.
If I still lived in Burntwood I'd be asking for a guided tour of your workshop and toys.
Looking forward to the next instalment.

Re: oil pump

I've got an pump from a spare GPZ11 A1 engine, no idea of it's condition or postage rates from France. If you can't find one closer to home give me a shout.

Re: Z1-B resurrection after 43 years

You could use a couple of plastic tubes cut down to act as spacers (electrical conduit for example) lightly tightened.

Re: GPZ11 Injection

Thanks Philippe, I thought as much, it doesn't have that 'mass produced' factory look.

Re: GPZ11 Injection

More investigation done today. First off was trying to work out where the bits of fairing mountings go. The only one's I've seen are all in one units or in top and bottom pieces. Mine looks a bit home made in places. IMG_20201031_135223.jpg IMG_20201031_135016.jpg I can't believe it's complete or co...

Re: GPz11 master cylinder

It worked beautifully, I really had to stand on the rear brake so it wasn't coming out by any other method.
Cheers Al, you're a star.

GPz11 master cylinder

Just trying to pull the piston out of the front master cylinder. The ally is furry and the piston stop is a little rusty, I've given them a good scape / clean and dropped some ATF / Acetone mix in there, left for a few days......and it's still as tight as. It won't pull out. Are there any tricks out...

Re: GPZ11 Injection

Finally bit the bullet with the engine casings. The blasters never replied. I did send photos of the engine, may have put them off if they're not kitted up for that. Got hold of a friend of a friend who's in a local classic car club. He gave me the details of a chap who does work on the members cars...
