I get frustrated because I'm always getting stuck in traffic on the way to and from uni, and am constantly doing short journeys, eats up my fuel Sad

Am tempted to do my wheels like this:

Instead of the current all white:

It's blooming hard getting the dragon done tidy, any ideas will be appreciated!

Am thinking touch up pen or small paint brush then smooth down if there's brush lines?

Ordered some, got a spare from scrappy whilst waiting for postie, but was given the wrong one, so some (fairly shoddy) welding was req'd with my arc welder!

this is the advice i was given when i was looking at buying one for my hdi

you need a ratcheted alternator pulley! otherwise it'll eat the belt rapidly!

the alternator's spinning part is too heavy and if the engine stops (so as the crank and crank pulley and the belt) the alternator pulley slips and for a little amount of time it keeps "spinning" on the aux belt (as the wrap angle and the amount of torque which could be transfered was designed with a two piece rubberised crank pulley in mind )

A decent autoelectrician shop could give you such ratcheted pulley off the shelf (they'll give you a pulley and a small spacer which moves the new pulley in position so the belt will remain linear - but I think they'll need your alternator or at least it's part number to give you the correct pulley and spacer.

That makes sense, I have a spare alternator I think, unless I chucked it, so I'll have a look, be easier to get one with the alternator off the car Smile cheers I'll look into it

Good progress, just out of interest, why did you change the lifters?

They were tapping, and couldn't hold the valves open fully under the high boost/fuel at higher rpm. Smile

Small update, just before we had the snow at the start of December, this happened to one of my rockers:
306 HDI D-Turbo - Page 2 IMAG0023

So we put a new one in in the snow, went for MOT the next day, passed 1st time.

All sorted now Very Happy

Here's a link to a video of the noise, you'll know when/if one goes!

https://s81.photobucket.com/albums/j240/tjphoteos/?action=view¤t=VIDEO0004.mp4

Just remember to stop straight away, to avoid frying the piston/valves. I have a good tow rope and enough torqz to pull you so give me a bell if you ever get stuck!

Warlord had one go just a day or two after mine, Chris (Dum Dum) had one go on his HDi in standard form, and Chris (bell306td) had one go too.
