    ​Whoops, forgot to post up the next videos!

    In Episode 20, I find out what I've broken with all the wiring changes:



    And in Episode 21, I see whether the car will start!

    In Episode 22, I finish off the brake/clutch systems, and start to make plans about modifying the cooling system.



    In Episode 23, I need to make some new engine mounts to free up space to relocate the radiator.

    In the first episode for 2021, I cut up my cooling radiator to make it fit in the space I made for it last year.

    After making the coolant radiator fit, I now start to squeeze some chargecooler components into whatever empty space I can find.



    This time I finish off the cooling system changes, and put them under pressure to test my work.

    In a bit of a change of pace, I try to cross a few outstanding tasks off my white board full of outstanding tasks!

    just a couple of comments for you Garry.
    your presentation technique has got a lot better much more flowing and confident.
    love the level of detail you go into it hits bang on the mark for me.
    your production and editing technique has improved a lot and it is very enjoyable to watch.
    you have progressed massively.

    your dad would be very proud.

    if you want a set of new injector seals for the original vR4 injectors, i can donate a set to your project as it is a good cause.

    let me know and i will post them down to you.

    Thank you for those very kind words, it means a lot! I went back and re-watched a few clips of earlier videos not long ago, and I was definitely cringing at how awkward I was! Still feel a little like that now, but much less so!


    I did put a new set of injector seals in 4-5 years ago, and they still felt pretty soft when I pulled them out. Although, saying that, having a spare set laying around certainly won't hurt! I'll message you with address and to sort it out

    I second the words from Davezj! Big improvements on all levels. That said, I've enjoyed your videos right from the start.

    I've spent most of the time between last episode and this working on redoing the radiator modifications. So in the absence of anything else, here's a slightly shorter video with an update of where I've got to.

    In these two episodes, I try (and fail) to get the car outside, but then succeed!

    This time round, I investigate what is going on with the clutch, after finding last time that it wasn't quite working right. Will I need to remove the engine *again* to sort it out?

    In this episode, after the success of getting an MOT test and the car being road legal again, and the sadness of a burnt out coilpack connector and suspected failing engine, I fix the coilpack connector, and begin troubleshooting where that horrible knocking clunky noise is coming from.

    In episode 33, I replace the banana-shaped driveshafts, and further investigate the horrible knocking noise coming from the engine.



    I've done something a little different this time - an unedited "first person" segment - please let me know if you like it, and would like to see this kind of thing again!

    There's finally a break in the weather long enough for me to get the car out for a test drive in the Anglia! But.... it's never that simple, is it?

    This time round, I do some fixes & tweaks based on last episode's test drive & subsequent discoveries about my four cylinder V6 engine...

    I've got lots of stuff going on around the house and garden, so not quite as much time to work on the Anglia - however, I did get the exhausts fitted back up, fiddled off-camera a little with the Oxygen sensor display thingy I've been building, and managed to get out for a bit of a test drive & start the road tuning.
