Rebuild of Forester XSN limited edition


Recommended Posts

So I bought a sad, neglected Forester to return back to former glory.

 

new hubs all round, new brakes around, replacement engine due to failed water pump taking out the head gaskets by last owner.

 

currently re-dressing engine bay in readiness of new engine fitting.

So some more work completed, 

engine complete except for fitting new water pump, then onto the engine crane to allow new clutch fitting before refitting into the car.

 

engine bay corrosion all addressed and then sprayed with hard finish smooth black, better than the dull base seal coat from the body Shell dip many years ago.

 

new clutch release bearing fitted, new clutch braided hose fitted and full flushed and bled through.

Uprated rear gearbox/engine support mounting billet fitted, to uprate the floppy standard mount.

getting close to get the lump back in the hole.

 

new fuel filter and re-work of the entire filter housing to be done prior to refitting.
