Question Lhd

Hi to everyone,

I have just got the book and after scanning through the forum was amazed to find the 3d cad for a LHD Roadster. Thank you to Fabrun awsum work. As you can see by my profile I live in Germany and am thinking about building a LHD.

From the 3d I can see that TR5 is on the opposite side but what about the transmission tunnel does that have to be altered as well, ie swoping TT2 and TT3, TT9 and TT11, TT10 and TT12 and the angles changed accordingly?

I have got a Vauxhall Corsa 1.4 16V, 90BHP. Does any body know if this engine can be married to a Sierra G/box?

Would it make a difference to the SVA if it was LHD?

Any advice is much appreciated

Regards
John

welcome to the forum John,

yes indeed Fabrun,s cad work is stunning indeed

the TR5 rail can be put on the opposite side but this also depends on which engine you fit as to whether you can fit TR5 at all, my engine install doesn,t allow it to be fitted (cvh engine).

Not sure if the engine you mention will fit/ mate with a ford box, don,t know anyone using that engine either.

good luck with your poss future build.

cheers
andy
ps. my sister used to live in your town

I'm sure you could cut the mounting flange off the bell housing and weld another on. Mounting a ford pressure plate on another fly wheel is easy enough with the right tools ie a lathe and mill. Would it not be easier to just put a ford engine on a ford box? I don't dougt that it can be done it depends on wether you want to spend time ,money or both?

I think the Ford engine is going to be the best option for now, the thing is I don't have a sierra just yet and the corsa is sat there doing nothing. It was going to get prepared for Rally X but I am sticking with the Golf for now.

I am a bit depressed because 3 months ago before I got the book I was given a 2.0l 16V Sierra and me like an idiot I sold it. Never mind I will find another one

That looks really good Fabrun, i especially like the transparent body version in the last pic. I have been doing my chassis pictures on Google Sketchup, it might be free but is not a patch on the 3d cad pictures.

Very Good.....AndyH

Top notch Cad work Fabrun.
I am a solidworks user myself but got my hands on a copy of 2009 before xmas and havent got using it yet. Your modelling has inspired me to dust off the space navigator!

Look forward to seeing more of your work! - Maybe some conceptual bodywork!

Really nice CAD work there... I've just been doing some CAD work the last few days on my replacement dashboard for my kit:
Some are rough earlier ones, some are slightly newer ones. Just to get the priniciple across.
What do you all think??
Thanks
Ed
