Thanks RD. @fat fuchs said the motor was about £40. He also explained how to get at it. Think I got most of it but be handy to have a guide. I’ll have a look in my SC Bentley Manual. Is it the same I wonder? 

Thanks Chris and Mark. I’ve yet to drive them back to back but the 3.0 engine certainly feels more urgent in building revs. The 3.2 feels like it has more power and I’m sure is a faster. Maybe I’m just so used to my SC and quite happy flooring here wherever as she just seems to love it. At about 4500rpm, the sc exhaust note is so raspy. Like a snarl that I just keep on wanting to hear it. 

Anyone have an idle adjustment guide for the 3.2? It’s ticking over at around 850rpm when warm. Maybe due to no holes in the exhaust now and how it was set up with a Swiss cheese exhaust. Just needs a tweak to nudge it up to around 950rpm.

Erm I’m not sure Shirish. Maybe the 3.2 to just put a few miles on her and keep loosening things up. Need to get new tyres on her and it’ll be a while until I can get the holes on the engine lid and front valance welded and painted.

Bentley has an idle check page or two - different on 3.2 as you adjust at the AFM, although 850 is not far off factory (880 iirc)

My brother Anil has the zingy-est 3.2 I’ve driven but he always insisted my 3.4 (at the time) was quicker - which it should be, but his felt faster to me. 

Be good to have a poke around your new acquisition....

Here is Jonny's guide that I followed.

Isn't his car an SC? The process was exactly the same on mine. If you are replacing then a bit of care and leap of faith to hammer the motor off the white impeller without breaking it is required.

Thanks Shirish. You’re more than welcome to have a poke around. I’m going to try to get tyres sorted ASAP. Plenty of tread on the tyres on there but old and cracking.  Weird to be looking at narrower tyres for a larger displacement car. 185/70 15 front and 215/60 15 rears. Dunlop classics are £211 a side for the fronts and £195 per side for the rears from Canskill! Wow! I’m guessing most are running 16” rims (as on my sc). Anyone running 15’s and can r3commend a tyre?

Hi Dave. Thanks. It certainly was. So tempted to tell you guys on Saturday but it wasn’t set in stone. Took Alan’s Cayman up to FF’s. Made a superb Porsche weekend with the drive the day before.

That two day drive you mentioned, tell me more. What these cars were made for 👍

So only had the car since last July and still not fixed the front blower motor. Thought I’d better pull my finger out since it’s a scorcher. Did it today. Nothing actually wrong with the old motor, just stiff from years of no use. Popped a new one in in any case.

Still can’t get over how clean this car is. Behind the air blower assembly cover it was pretty much spotless. Even cleaner now. Painted the little clips that hold the back black bit onto the motor and cleaned the fan and housings. Works a treat now. Quite powerful when the fresh air blower works.

With Shirls up on the lift, spotted some jobs that needed sorting. Rack/pump cover plate looked minging so off it came today. Degrease to get rid of caked on underseal, wire wheel, rust converter, two coats of undercoat, two coats of satin black. Whilst the cover was drying and in between coats of paint, got under the car and applied a coat of Dinitrol to every surface that looked like it needed protecting. 3 hours+ of Dinitrol applying! Lol. I enjoy little jobs like that. Easy and likely offer the car some decent protection for a while. Think I need to renew the oil lines soon. Metal sections and unions are a bit corroded. Front short flexible sections to cooler look worse.
