The slow recovery of Baby Beast

posted Aug 12, 2012, 2:27 PM by Andras Kalmar
The list of obvious problems was long already when I bought Baby Beast, but the more areas I touched, the more and bigger issues arose.
The first task was to fix the safety relevant problems: rust, rust, and once again rust. Baby Beast got new dampers, new brake lines, lots of rust holes had to be welded.

Finally in June Baby Beast passed the general inspection and received its number plate.

The following tasks were less critical but even more cumbersome: the 5th speed of the gearbox was broken, only a small part worth 10 Euros, but its replacement required to remove and to disassemble the gearbox:

Lots of worn out rubber buffers in the front suspension, oil in the engine, gearbox, reduction gear, differential have been changed.

Currently the steering gear is being overhauled (the backlash in the steering was around 20°), but I hope to get it back next week.
