"Shake Down" Repairs for BING

Post  Giobus on Sat Jan 12, 2013 10:43 pm

Hi all,

Well, BING is starting to clock up a few K's (sorry mile's) and as l said she's in 'Shake Down' mode, all those little things that come up after you build a car.

After the Kustom Nationals last week at Phillip Island a few things have come up that required attention.

Firstly, l finally got around to filling the tank to the brim - MISTAKE, the seal at the top of the filler neck had perished so l lost a good portion and then more when l went through a roundabout.
Condition of failed seal.

Boot trim had to be removed.

Location of the seal.

Close-up of filler neck where it has been leaking.


Next was the 'Rear Axle Seal', the RHR seal failed leaving oil all over the backing plate & tyre. Once removed it was obvious why Evil or Very Mad when it was replaced back in the States they damaged the seal putting it in & they didn't fit gaskets Mad

An easy repair until l got to the LHR, the wheel bearing seal had failed due to poor fitment (Surprise !, l swear they don't know how to repair cars) and in turn the bearing is failing - so l just put it back together until l get new bearing.

Finally, the front suspension has started to 'Squeak', l mean really squeak. gets me - all the bushes are NEW, so a bit of 'spray lube' and hopefully it finds it's was to the right places.

So that's Saturday, BING got a bit of a interior clean ready for tomorrow's breakfast gathering and now I'm inside sore like l was a few months back, typing on the Forum.

Catch you all

Hey Nick,

NO, it wasn't a "TOTAL NUT & BOLT" restro, Bing is nearly 50 years old and these mechanical and hidden bits DO fail.
