      Arrived at the ferry terminal 11:00.
      And everything went better than expected.

      My wipers gave up today.
      Can I use motor, mechanism and arms from the 90 on my pre-90?

      I think so.
      There was a change somewhen from M6 nuts to M8 nuts on the arms somewhen, but that shouldn't matter if you're change it complete.

      If that is the «only» change, then i think that I have new arms in stock too.

      I know the post 89 has a different plug on the motor, but that should be an easy fix. Hopefully.

      Can anyone tell what the oil pressure sensors on the 1,8 KR engine is set up too?

      I know there is two of them, and one might be 1,8 bar and one might be 0,3 bar. But when I look through various web shops, I get confused, because I get 4-6 different choices. Even if I pick the right engine from a list, or go by the VIN.

      Can anyone help me, I’m tired of keep seeing the flashing light and hearing buzzer of the oil pressure warning.

      It keeps coming on at 2500 rpm, at oil temps between 80 and 92 degrees Celsius.

      The stock buzzer switch is 1.8 bar, which is most likely the one acting up for you (top of oil filter housing). Tectonics sells a .9 bar version to keep the light and buzzer off.

      Does anyone know if there are some differences in the drive shafts, from a 1,8 CL 90 hp and 1,8 KR 139 hp?

      I did a search on my company’s parts system, and the driveshafts for post 89 1,8 CL has the same parts number on both sides, as my 86 1,8 KR.

      So I will take the chance on swapping from one of my 1,8 90hp cars. As I have three of them now.

      There are two options as far as sizes, 90 mm and 100 mm. I've found that 100 mm is the size for 16v's.

      That is right, but it seems like 90mm is for 1,1 1,3 and 1,6

      Installed the new 1.8 bar oil pressure sensor today.

      Also put on the top strut nut on the front struts. The car is finally silent going over ruff edges.

      And installed the subwoofer again. Just need to adjust it a bit.

      Will try to change the driveshafts next month.

      Tried to make some driveshafts a bit prettier.



















      Changed them, and the car is now a bit better. But there is a bit to much slack in the differential, so it still makes a lot of noise when going on/off the throttle.

      Changed the wiper mechanism and motor. Refurbished a set of wiper arms. Have a set of new ones some where, but couldn’t find them.



      The car passed the MOT for two New Years, so I’m ready for the new season of nice weather driving.

      Since I still have a small leak from the fuel pump housing, and the car won’t start if I park it uphill, or downhill while tilted to the right. I went the long way, and purchased the alloy fuel pump housing from Pro-Alloy motorsports in UK.




      I really hope this works, or I have just thrown £500 out of the window.

      Wild, that's premium pricing. What's the third hoop for? I assume it's fuel filter on the big ring, fuel pump on the middle piece and then? I'm exploring ditching this, did you think to do this? at this cost it would be a big motiviation.

      I have thought about using another setup. With Bosch 04 pump.

      The hoop on the right is for the fuel accumulator.
