    Default Another 348 Rear End Resto!

    Inspired by Pangea's thread, Ive decided to do something very similar. I know the 'engine out' has been covered a number of times but just thought I would post up my experience during the engine removal / refurb process, more so that I can ask questions along the way and also provide any tips which may help others.

    Here it is all stripped down ready for removal this weekend (nice clutch!). Ive made up my wheeled dolly out of a modified pallet so that I can move it out of the way as required.

    My intention is to also get the engine off the subframe for a few repairs and full refurb.

    Still concerned how much I need to bend the gear linkage out of the way during the raising process. Think I'll get the linkages out all together for a re-grease

    Here I decided instead to remove all the pipes and electrics from the charcoal filter, I just removed a single pipe and the filter as a whole.

    Perhaps you may be able to answer something that Ive never really got a satisfactory answer to....

    Why cant people with 2 post lifts etc just put the wheels back on and lift the car away rather than making a trolley??? see pic below

    Never thought of that! Can't see any issues with doing it that way either

    This is how I did my 348 majors. Just lifted the car off the disconnected drive train and wheeled it into the garage to work on.

    Bilstein Leicestershire apparently refurb them. Another option is to call emblem sports in poole. They use a motorsport specialist so may be able to assist.
    Others will be along to give options. Looking at them i dont see why they cant be done...no different to others of that age.

    I struggled with the 2nd one getting the bottom retaining nut off so Ive just sent both complete units off to Bilstein for refurbishment. Will be interesting to see how they come back

    Things starting to come back now rather than sending them away. Pleased with all my plated goods, just wish Id spent a bit more time preparing the exhaust mounts.
