B18FT and auto 'box

As above really.  Have a complete, reasonably low mileage B18FT attatched to an auto gearbox taking up space. Removed from a 440 Turbo, 1993 I think, about 6 months ago. Ran really well, nice and quiet, had about 80k on the clock. I no longer have any 400s, so it's pointless me holding on to it. For...

Re: Quick decline into the life of a 480 owner

Those wheels look awfully familiar... Did they come up with Jamesy's 480 by any chance??
They're off my 460!

Oh well, sad to see the end of an era is nigh. :(
Best of luck with your new direction, Jim. Hopefully you'll be able to take it easy now!

Hey Alan.

Not in too much of a hurry, so don't worry.

Could do that with the Spring pan.

Breaking 460

I'm breaking a 460 2.0 CD.

Not strictly a 480, but many interchangeable parts if anyone's interested.

Info centre, etc...

Jim should recognise the wheels...

Wow, not been on for a while as my 480 went a while ago.

Re: white 480 1700?

I took on DIS's 480 hoping to do a restoration job... Tin worm is bad all around back end, basically - boot floor and all underneath there at the back behind bumper etc (body, not just that panel that always rusts), rear arches outer and inner, cills both outer and inner completely gone at the back...

Re: white 480 1700?

Cheers.

Was supposed to be 40mm with Gmax springs, always thought it looked more like 50 though, especially at the back.

It's 'was' rather than 'is' as it's now being broken due to epic tinworm :(

Re: 480 as your only car?

For a while, probably about two years, my 480 served as the go between car when the others broke down. It's longest stint was about 6 months of solid, hard use lumping all my tools around. About 150kg in the back of a lowered 480 meant I had to plan my journeys around speed bumps! :rofl: Ironically,...

Re: More Engine Problems - Any Ideas Please

Could have just had a blanking plug on it,as that's where the boost guage plumbs in on the Turbos. Open, like that, will definitely cause running problems as there ia a lot of unmetered air being sucked in, causing lean running. If you'd sprayed carb cleaner there with the engine running, it would h...
