Stefen,
I'm in Pack 4 now. When placing the starter motor into the block, I don't feel a snap type fit. It seems loose. Did you use some glue to hold it in place?

Hi Dave,
Did the same,used a little bit off glue. Just to make sure not to loose the parts or find them later in the engine

Well, I managed to make my first major mistake. When attaching the 2 motor mounts to the engine block, I used glue to secure them. Then I noticed they were not flush with the engine block. I brought out the frame from Pack 5 where the motor mounts to and the holes didn't line up. I would have had to bend the frame to make them line up. NO, not doing that. I manage to pry out the mount with the square tab and file and sand it to fit flush. Then when I pried out the mount with the round tab, managed to break it off. OK, bring out the Dremel micro grinder and grind out the hole and file the mount till it fit flush. I used JB Weld (you can fix metal engine parts with this stuff) on it and it's drying now. There was enough left on the mount that when this all dries, it will support the finished engine when installed. I did check with the frame rails and now the two holes line up perfectly. At least I learned by this mistake, to dry fit parts BEFORE you put glue on them!!! I like to say, I've never had a failure in my life, I have learning experiences. I LEARNED, "Don't do it that way"!

A fellow many, many years ago taught me auto mechanics. He taught me a valuable lesson. When you're working on an engine and you're frustrated because nothing is working and you are standing with a ball peen hammer in your hand and you want to start pounding on the engine, put the hammer down, close the garage door and go in the house and have a beer. You can go back into the garage when you finish the beer. If you pick up the hammer again, repeat the previous with the beer, until you can go back and NOT pick up the hammer. I got to that stage with the left side exhaust pipes. Nothing was going right. I got the right side finished with no problems. So I went into reverse. Put all the pipes into the fixture that goes into the heads and work backwards. You can see by the picture, it's making sense to me. I've also included a picture of my garage, I have a mill and a lathe where I make working model steam engines. I'm going to make a jig to hold all the pipes in the order they go in a straight line, line up the other ends of the pipes into a circle, THEN glue them into the collector.

Well I hope I solved that exhaust problem on the left side. I've put in some pictures. I first used my machining knowledge to find out the distance between the 6 exhaust ports down to the thousandth of an inch. Went to my mill and with a scrap piece of aluminum, made a jig to hold them straight. Lined up the ends that go into the collector. Found a small rubber gasket to hold them into place. I used a pin vise to hold the right drill bit to open up the holes in the collector. Mixed up some JB Weld and glued the collector in place and cut off the rubber gasket. Everything is curing right now. Let's see if I did right tomorrow when the glue sets.

Stephen and Andreas,
I really need some helpful advice now. I'm a little disappointed and frustrated at the production of some of the parts not fitting like they should. I'm at the point of attaching the lower U shaped suspension mounts for the lower A arms at the rear. I was extremely disappointed in the screws they provided. The M screws (Schraube Typ M (M2,0x4 Rundkopf)) were too long. When I tightened the first screw, it seemed to bottom out real tight and the U mount was still very loose. I tried a little more and managed to break off the head of the screw with the rest still in the hole. I probably can JB Weld it on to the frame with the other U mount securely tightened up to hold the A arm in place. I'm even looking at buying some Metric taps to solve this problem. Before screwing in more screws, tap some threads into the hole so I won't have this problem any more. I can always use some LocTite Thread Locker to keep them secured. I hope you can help me.

Hi David,
Unfortunately it is the case that the thread is missing or incomplete in almost all models. At the time, I bought a metric tap set. I generally pre-cut the thread on all of my models. It doesn't matter where plastic parts are screwed together. It's like butter there. A few pictures of your problem would be informative. But as I said, I pre-cut all threads, without exception. I'd rather pre-cut the thread than it'll tear off a screw later and the problems get even bigger. I check the building instructions in advance as they are not always correct. Screws are mislabeled, and then the problems are there. In the meantime, I have repaired 17 cars for customers on behalf of DeAgo, and the wrong screws were also used there by customers.

Andreas, thank you for your response. Sure wish pre-cutting the holes with metric taps was taught BEFORE I started this model. You will see in the picture, the U mount on the left is secured and the area on the right is scuffed up. As I was using my Dremel rotary tool to drill out the hole and start over, I could not reduce the speed enough. In machining there is a term, "work hardening". A drill bit can create a lot of heat even with cutting fluid. This heat can harden the metal being drilled into (much like heating metal up to cherry red and then plunging it into water to harden the metal) and then it's impossible to finish the drilling. I believe this is what happened to me on that screw material left in the hole. The scuffing is so that when I mix up some more JB Weld, I will get a very secure bond when I secure the U mount. The mount on the left in the picture is secure enough to hold the lower A arm in place without putting too much pressure on the "glued" mount on the right. I went through the rest of the screw list and ordered metric taps for all the sizes I saw. The M2 taps I found online, came in 3 different pitches. M2-.25, M2-.4 and M2-.45. Bought the 3 along with M2.3 and M2.6 taps. I should be covered for the rest of this build.
Thank you and Stephen for all your help,
David

Stephan and Andreas,
I've been away for a week attending the funeral of my brother-in-law. It was some what expected. When I got back, I was assembling the rear suspension. A lot of difficulty here. But finally finished it. Did you both find the drive shafts a little bit short? The ends fit in the transmission rather well but when I finished the assembly of the uprights, the ends that fit into the area of the brake discs, it really didn't fit into anything. I could move that end up and down instead of fitting into something. I have also found out, some of the screws can be a bit too long. The A screws holding the parts you screw into the frame were a bit too long. At first they would bottom out against the frame and the parts were still loose. When I shortened them up a bit, then they held just fine. I can't remember these kinds of problems when I built the Senna McLaren.

Also, can you teach me how to upload pictures so you can see them in the response page. I see that my photos come up as files and you have to click on them to see them. Stephan, your pages show the photos with having to open anything.

Stephan,

I need a big explanation of the front hood mounts near the windshield. I have taken a picture from the German instructions that Andreas sent me. I have also taken pictures of what I'm talking about. The instructions show when installing Detail 4, the extension tabs are facing to the rear of the model. On your official build, I see you have installed them the other way with the extension tabs facing forward. Before I get to far into the build and won't be able to correct a problem, which way are they supposed to face?
Dave

hello dave,

I mounted it the wrong way round.
I corrected that during the assembly.

Stephan,
I see you had the same problem as I did in Stage 58, Pack 7 with part number 1. After installation, the ends stuck far away from the chassis. Trying to install the doors without somehow gluing those ends down would have resulted in the doors not being able to open without catching on those ends. When I need a really strong bond I use an adhesive I learned about from my model metal machining. It's called Loctite 648 High Strength Adhesive. Putting 2 parts of metal that you machined to a snug fit and use this Loctite, IT AIN'T COMING APART. I mix some JB Weld along with a small dab of Loctite and so far whenever I've used it, the 2 parts haven't come apart.

Stephan,
I've just finished Pack 10. I'm flying blind for Packs 11 & 12 as I don't see your post on how to finish the model. Have you posted your build for 11 & 12 somewhere else in this forum? Anyway, I do have the instructions I got from Andreas and it's all in German. I'm having fun trying to learn another language!
