Hmm not likely to get any car parts near the kitchen in our house, divorce would be on the cards.

If you need a n other gearbox/parts, albeit not VX, let me know as here a few spares!

An early look didn't reveal anything untoward, but I was still hoping
to find the reason it was stripped in the first place. It all looked fine until
I found yesterday that first gear is almost impossible to select [ by sliding the hub manually]

Much inspection followed, and still does. The hub will not slide over the gear dogs.
Excuse terminology.
More looking tomorrow, but I may well be tearing down the other [complete] gearbox
to harvest some parts, something until now I was trying to avoid. However,as i've already
taken an output shaft from the diff, it's not complete anyway.

Help, I'm running out of space! Kitchen table next.

Good stuff Nigel, have you looked at the gearbox gears yet?

The gearbox work has properly started with an inspection
of the diff. The right side output shaft splines had visible wear,and I measured
the end-float at 0.50, this is at least 0.20 too much, but as I wish to use that crownwheel assembly I
stripped the other,complete,diff to extract that side shaft. I then put it back together
and got lucky with the end-float shim sizes, and achieved 0.25 on both sides,result.

I've now got the diff back in its housing, without any flange seals in
preparation for the pre-load adjustment. I've used my 2 shims together behind the
right-side flange,and nipped up the 4 bolts until I got a feelable loading,then
measured the gap between flange and casing. The calc deduced a 2.35 shim requirement.
Luckily, Bayless has this plus the 2 either side of this size i.e. 2.30 and 2.40 hence my order,
figuring that any error should be able to be corrected with all 3.

I've been closely looking at Paul Valente's photos and info on an FB post of
a build he did some 5 years ago. Extremely detailed and valuable. [ a link is in the
'Transmission' section,kindly posted by PeeWee ]

I made up a 'tool' to lock the left-side output flange to the pinion carrier, a rather simple
plastic tube from my plumbing stock,and it works a treat. It's this detail that's missing from
the Haynes manual,without this 'tool' a preload is impossible as you'd be conflicted
with the planetary gears turning.

Now on a ,hopefully short, pause as I await parts.

A high degree of cobblers in that advert.

Unless the rest of if is done to a far higher standard than the roof it will have all the structural integrity of a wet teabag.

Surely this is nothing more than a Dealer Conversion as the seller states (and doesn't appear to be a good one at that) rather than a "prototype" as the seller alludes to !!!!!

"Sporting a full-length convertible roof, this unique Lancia Delta is a prototype for an intended limited-production model that never materialised".

Interesting VX for sale on eBay, no connection to seller..
£2000 seems fairly reasonable for a VX coupe.

On the crank pulley, ideally I would want to remove it. Makes the job much easier and less chance of damaging the belt. I have done it both ways, hence the comment. I used a rattle gun on a few engines and eventually the nut came loose. Depending on your engine you may need a reasonably high power one.

I might check to borrow one or rent one then?Ö I guess it may add a little trickery if I donít remove it (I guess you always need to pull the belt to make sure itís inserted properlyÖ
But I remember my mechanic told me he tried for a long time unsuccessfully , with all his experience and tools. Iím afraid this one is really Badly seized
