Started work on the Syncro (T4 Rear Discs)


Well it's time to start work on the syncro. Was planning to keep this on the road as I went through it but it had other ideas. Mick drove this for over 12 month and it didn't miss a beat, I drive it 400km from Townsville to Mackay and arrive with a loose cam gear.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-8GZ0iIXpdp8/UpVzyMMksMI/AAAAAAAAAAc/lRFFIiB0O-o/s800/P1050526.JPG

Rebuit the shift linkage, front complete with remains of a mud wasp nest.

After with new tips.

This boot on the middle section was cactus, couldn't find a part number for this or a listing anywhere.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JjEHUN0vSVc/UpV2g-UwE7I/AAAAAAAAAAo/IbTStTfyVOI/s800/P1050508.JPG

Used a boot from the gearbox selector shaft, not perfect but will keep the dirt out.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-00-BWUvH8WY/UpV2nJ0PvAI/AAAAAAAAABA/bL-uUbwmKDk/s800/P1050514.JPG

Replaced the selector lever but ther was some play after install, so tightened it up with some grub screws.

Some of the surprises so for, well maybe not the coolant line.

Front outer drive shaft spline. This must have been an old repair as the spline in the CV showed no damage and must have been replaced. Circlip mustn't have been seated properly and the CV walked it's way off the shaft. This will be replaced with a spare shaft.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-JNC2kktYKxg/UpaEAophf5I/AAAAAAAAADI/imljaHWx0VA/s800/P1050505.JPG


What's left of my accelerator cable tube.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JS018qnVQMc/UpaEFwTP7CI/AAAAAAAAADg/flGMHpWZ4HI/s800/P1050530.JPG


Coolant line end, other end of this pipe is similar.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-NivZU24nXwY/UpV2qkkSIpI/AAAAAAAAABQ/7Cg7EfgcZUo/s800/P1050524.JPG


When Mick first got this Syncro the rear diff lock actuator was missing along with the bracket, after trying to fit a new actuator and bracket I found out why. The gearbox had previously had work done and when the diff lock was assembled they installed the actuator shaft wrong. Photo is from thesamba(Tristar Eric), I forgot to get a photo.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-geeiPxrsh5g/UpaFdR8CerI/AAAAAAAAADs/Lx-eP1qZmA4/s800/976583%2520incorrect%2520orientation.jpg


This is how it should look, a gearbox out, bellhousing off job to correct.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-uVWDrpzv4nA/UpaED4NVvwI/AAAAAAAAADY/S4QM7Uf_Vx8/s800/P1050489.JPG


And what is does to the end of vacuum actuator shaft.

Got the headlights out of the way, new adjusters all around from Van Cafe so I was able to ditch the make shift one I had for the outside corners. Adjusters were very stiff and needed some silicone grease. Profile in the adjuster screws phillips heads were not great. Also got some 8mm nylon tubing to replace the throttle tube


https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-K4Fuvc7jgW8/UqreeCw7bcI/AAAAAAAAAGA/jwVWJCMohHg/s800/P1050580.JPG


Previously had cleaned up the foggy high beam lenses and swapped them side to side. They had been installed wrong and gave a cross eyed look. Cut off the old connectors and crimped on the right fitting.

It looks like yours was a single headlight originally. Was the spare wheel in the back or underneath the front?



I read it on samba, so it must be correct.

Sometimes Volkswagen dealers sell spare parts. Amazing isn't it!:lol:

You must have one of the earliest Australian syncros.

Built in April 1988 if your VIN is 083488.

So I have gone from the pressed steel/welded lower control arms....

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-39s7Anxjbdk/Uq-I7-vpWdI/AAAAAAAAAGg/ysPRN2iXOU8/s800/P1050584.JPG


to the later cast steel arms. Replaced the bushes and ball joints, not impressed with the "Febi Quailty" upper control arm bushes and caster rod bushes from JK turning out to be noname and "Rubberex".

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-nYseCNNcSFs/UqBNerDPvOI/AAAAAAAAAFM/7xK-SIP4Z3o/s800/P1050525.JPG


Went for Old Man Emu shocks from Van Cafe, when I combined them with a big order it was cheaper than buying them from ARB locally.

Here is the front back together. I have installed longer stud in the front in case I want to go to larger brakes later. Had to shop around for the front seals, got the lip seals from VC and the V-Ring seals from Brickwerks.

Went through the brakes, as the pedal would go to the floor occasionally when you least expected it. So fitted a new ATE master cylinder, had to split the brake light switch connectors as they went from 2 prongs to 3 prongs on the switches.

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-L2ZkdLgfL-U/UqBKREO4PuI/AAAAAAAAAEg/JO3XIvxOQWc/s800/P1050548.JPG


Rebuilt the front calipers and clearanced the brake pipe brackets to clear the guide pin bushes.I had four different caliper and they all had problems here.

Rear brakes got new slave cylinders and changed the brake hose bracket on the front to better suit the new brake hose size.

Boot on the front diff lock actuator was shredded, fortunately BrickWerks have them for about $5. This is a cheap repair for an $80 actuator, they will leak vacuum if the boot is torn.

Replaced the front pinion seal. Had the front diff out but the seal didn't turn up until after I had the diff back in. It wasn't that hard to replace in situ, knocked up a tool to hold the input flange and torqued it up.

Brickwerks have this seal $8.50 compared to $54 from Van Cafe

Bit extra about rebuilding the ATE front calipers.

They take the same kit as the Girling caliper (piston seal and dust boot)

Guide pin bush kit part number 11010160042 (11.0101-6004.2)

Got the axles back from the powdercoater and got them assembled. CVs were still good. Front inner CVs on the 4 axles I had all had rear CVs fitted, so I've kept them on there for now but I pretty sure that is not correct. Might have to change them over to the correct syncro inners or get some Porsche 944 CVs which you can also use.

Decided it was time to get the correct tools to make the job easier, banding tool and Oetiker Pliers.

Installed an extra mounting bush in the engine carrier. The SmallCar mount allows for a third centre mount. Usually used for the H6 motors but I thought it might be a good idea for a syncro installation.

Nice work Brent.

Did you use small car bellhousing as well as the sump and mounts?

What other Smallcar stuff are you using?

Cheers,

Scott

Yes I'm using the Smallcar bellhousing(see picture above), finish on the machining on the bellhousing was a lot better than previous and the fit of the dowels(gearbox side) is improved. I will go into the bellhousing more later.

Also have the drive by wire pedal bracket and coolant line(usually used on the H6 and turbo H4) which lets you not reverse the coolant manifold.

Thanks Brent.

I am planning on doing this conversion shortly.

What model scooby 2.5 donk are you using? Who is doing your harness re-wire and could you please list the smallcar or other bits required and costs.

Thanks heaps in advance. Just want to make sure I get everything I need.

Cheers,

Scott

Engine is a EJ252 from a 2005 Liberty.

Haven't decided on the harness yet, I have several choices there. If I can't get my head around it will go to AM Autos but using an EJ22E system or LinkPlus G3 are also options.

This is one job I was putting off but it actually came out with too much hassle. So new fuel pump, new filter and reseal kit from Van Cafe. Tank has no insulation from factory, so it will be getting some.

Gave the tank a good scrub, getting the wax over spray off the tank was the tedious bit. Started with some foam under where the straps sit.

Got some tank strap from Clark Rubber.

Insulation off eBay, not as good as factory but better than the nothing that was on there. Used some sikaflex to glue the hose brackets on as the tabs had broken off the tank.
