gives me passion to understand, repair and restore all parts of car.
The satisfaction of hearing a rebuild engine starting
for the first time!
In 1996 the engine in my car broke down. I could see the
drive belt for the fan and generator moving when I pushed the clutch and
the engine could not idle. I took the engine out and took it to pieces.
It goes really fast and I had never seen and engine from the inside. The
trust washers had fallen down the sump and the crank shaft and block was
damaged. I bought a new engine block, new pistons, new bearings and many
more items. I took about six weeks to clean, buy understand how it
worked. The assembly it self took less than 10 hours and the I started
the engine.... It did not work. There was no more petrol left. I had to
buy some liters of petrol and it started. Was a feeling! I felt the
ultimate challenge had been accomplished. To build a complete engine
The car is now from 2001 until 2006? going to be
completely reborn and there is not a bolt or nut I haven't refitted.
