Supercharged Camira..

Craig and Adam\’s attempt at adding an SC12 to a JE Camira wagon

I Can Feel the Tension!

Posted by superchargedcamira on October 28, 2007

On Saturday, Craig and his old man spent the better half of 12 hours creating the supercharger tensioner. It looks like an ingenious little design. As seen in the pictures below, it has a plate that slides up and down with two securing bolts and a perpendicular securing bolt. We have realised we need to get a tighter fitting belt though. Im sure Craig will add more information re the makings of the tensioner in due course..

Today (Sunday) we spent most of the day with the Camira over the pit. I hadnt really used the pit since id dug it out many months ago. We wanted to secure a few exhaust rubber mounts that were annoying to get to and also check for anything loose suspension and mounting wise. We did find a few things that were loose and driveability has somewhat improved but there are still some interesting knocking noises that can be heard sometimes under certain conditions – namely coming off acceleration, and some undulated corners. This doesnt affect driveability hugely however it would be nice if the car was a bit smoother on the road. Perhaps we will take it to Mikey (my local mechanic friend) and get him to point us in the right direction.
