I checked with Derek at CC this morning regarding the installation of the handbrake, and his suggestion was to use to top of the two front handbrake mounting holes, use the top connector on the switch and to ensure the handbrake cable was twisted as this stops the handbrake cable rubbing on the edges of the tunnel.
|Handbrake switch, note connection block plugged into top switch connector.|
|Handbrake in place mounted through top front mounting hole and handbrake cable twisted as per Derek's instructions.|
|Prop shaft placed in tunnel prior to diff installation as per instructions.|
|Diff on jack prior to final positioning.|
|Removed the fuel tank so filling of the diff should be easier. It also happens that the fuel pump is still on back order (with no ETA right now!) so I assume having the tank out will make fitting the pump a touch easier.|
|LSD top view prior to installation.|
|View of handbrake arrangement now diff has been lifted into place. I'm pretty sure the cable on the left isn't right how it is, so will check with Derek in the morning.|
|Handbrake locator in place on the diff as per the instructions.|
Had a look through some other boxes to try and find things that I could do quickly tonight, and I checked out in detail the track day roll bar... Turns out I've got another item from a different customer, but this is the worst so far... It looks like the other customer has returned this - as you can see from the tape on the second and third pics, it looks to have been returned as damaged due to marks on the top bar in the powder coat. Seriously Caterham........
|Customers name and order number... I think?|
|First tape from previous customer pointing to the mark on the powder coating.|
|Tape on other side of roll bar - surely this is outside of the already long in the tooth "it's all part of the experience statement"|
|Visible hole in chassis - surely this isn't right?|
