Water Injection complete

At last the water injection is all sorted with Richards help from DRL. I had to remove the board from the casing break the tinniest of links and solder a new link to give me the required volume of water injection, trouble was they assumed we had 100% drive to the injectors when on full throttle but that is not the case we use around 68%at full throttle so had to move to x1.5 on the scale hence the soldering but all good now, i also fitted the passengers seat tidied up the wiring to the Aquamist ECU and put it in conduit and refitted the dash so just the line locks to go.

Clutch Installation

Clutch all now operational not without a few problems on the way first is the new master cylinder is 3/16th pipe and fitting the new slave is still 1/4in but with a UNF fitting so I made a little fitting one end 3/16th one end 1/4in then silver soldered the respective pipes into the fitting new swaged ends and hey presto a complete system ,master all fitted fine used the old clevis with a new pin surprising the wear on the old one, the new master is not integral with the reservoir so a remote reservoir has been fitted on the passengers side and piped across and into the inner wing all looks neat and tidy the action now that I have the correct hydraulic advantage is very smooth and surprisingly light so the rest of the engine is back together run it up tomorrow and set up the water injection.

Water Injection and Line Lock work

Been at the wiring again today got all the wires and multi cores into place some have been fitted into conduit and clipped in place some are waiting for tomorrow to come, the wiring for the line locks is also moused through so lots of terminating to come. I am going to use the button in centre of the door opener for the lock as its the only available place which is easily in reach when clamped tight in the harness unless anyone one has a better idea?

TVR Chimaera – Triple Plate Clutch

Another day at the TVR mill got the trigger wheel for the speed sensor tig’ed up had to reduce the slots by half as the dash pro didn’t like the multi slot trigger on the prop shaft went a bit mad after 100mph so needed to get that done and repainted ready to go back on Monday Tuesday, also finally tightened up the sump bolts fitted the flywheel and sorted the clutch need to make a top hat bush for the release bearing carrier to fit the new 40mm i.d. bearing so coming along nicely.

TVR Triple Plate Clutch + Lightweight Flywheel

Clutch foot pressure will be about the same as standard the real advantage is the triple plates lots of surface area and terrific heat dissipation qualities, below is a pic of the new flywheel looks almost to good to use clutch itself will be here next week but been getting on with refitting the sump with new better quality crucifix seals and starting on the water injection install, i have run the pipe from boot to engine bay although not clipped up yet and sorted how all the wiring will connect and run the line lock turned up pm as well looks a nice unit.

This is a very original Chimaera recently prepared by myself. It has been well looked after with a full + very detailed service history. The car is excellent mechanical condition and over last two years has had in region of £8,000 of work done, including new outriggers, wishbones, clutch, radiator and most recently had new suspension and brakes. It runs as ‘sweet as a nut’ – and is definitely one of the good ones, ignore the mileage this car is one that will not need much looking after for a good many years.
