Carl Meek & James Lovett - Build Diary for Westfield
Third Drive!


September 5 2007 - Third Drive!
No photos today i'm afraid, don't think i did anything worthy of photographing.

The only thing on my mind is the rubbish spongey brakes, so i'm going to attack them.  After some close inspection, turns out the AP front calipers have 2 bleed nipples - so basically thats what i did wrong.  Re-bled from all four front nipples and the pedal is hard as a rock, problem solved!

A few more blats up and down and its stopping like a dream!  And f**k me its fast!

The air flow meter carb/throttle body balancer turned up today, so i gave it a quick go - one cylinder is out from the other three and overall not enough air, so its running a little rich.  I dont have the laptop so cant really fix it now, i'll do it tomorrow.

Another guy who lives 200 yards away owns a megabusa too... he came over to say hello.  I had a good look at his car and immediately spotted the problem with my wingmirrors, i mounted them 90 degrees off.  What an idiot.  I refitted the drivers one and i'll buy a new passenger one from westfield.
