Lads,
I live in ireland and I have just bought a lancer evo 11 GSR 1994.

I have a few questions,
1: The clutch is slipping and I was wondering is this a difficult job to do on a Evo 11,, what should i look out for.
2: I hope to do some minor mods to her and i was wondering where most of you get your parts? i.e web addresses.
3: The handbrake is crap, is this easy to adjust and what does it act on,, someone told me it could be on the prop!!!
Thanks,
Steve

In answer to your last question. I doubt if the handbrake operates on the prop. That arrangement is usually on off road 4 wheel drive vehicles (land rovers etc.) or vans. The use of the handbrake on the prop when moving can severely damage the prop and drivetrain, something that is not ideal on a rally car!

If you've run out of adjustment which is done with a long 10mm socket down the side of the hand brake, you need to remove the rear pads and push the pistons back in, relase the adjustment on the handbrake first, and you'll get your handbrake back. If and easy job to do, undo the handbrake cable on the caliper and then undo 1 bolt and the caliper swings up. The handbrake was always poor on my car but it got through the MOT doing this, you won't do handbrake turns though, it a 4x4 remember, and it will act on all wheels.

As for the handbrake, my rear calipers were beginning to stick somewhat, making the handbrake shite.

A good 4 hour thrash later - see Mr Hunt for more details http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle > and the rears were in perfect working order! I had to turn the front discs blue mind ye, but since then my brakes have never been better!

Got to be better than faffing around under your car in this weather! [img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/happy1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >

Hi Steve,
Where abouts in Ireland are you as i'm in Ireland too!. As for changing the clutch in an EvoII it's a fairly akward job but i've removed mine 4 TIMES!! in the last 2 months so I know whats what on them by now. There's no real hassle taking it out as long as you drop the gearbox side og the engine an inch or 2, It's abit of a sqeeze removing the box. Putting it back in is much harder as it's difficult to line up the gearbox when your putting it in at an angle!!.
Anyway if you need more advice i'm sure you can give me a call as it's alot easier to talk than type!!!.
Regards,
Paul.C

Are you back on the road then GSRed?
Did you manage to find a whole gearbox or just get away with some parts?
(or am I mistaking you for someone else - It was you who was searching for a gearbox wasn't it?)

cheers

Hi,
Yeah White II you have the right guy there, I'm still in terrible hassle againhttp://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >.
To make a long story short. I Got and EvoII box over in manchester, brought it home and transfered my original final drive and front diff into it so it would suit my drivetrain. drove about 10 miles and the centre diff collapsed AGAIN!!. Then after deciding that the centre diff of the EvoII did not suit my GSR we got new parts and rebuilt the original centre diff so all was the same before all this started, at this stage iv'e spent £2300. Now i fitted the (original spec) box to my car on saturday and it drove great all day sunday so i filled it up with petrol around the corner but when driving home the centre diff exploded AGAIN!!!.
So this is where i'm at now, we think that previous owner had box trouble and found one that looked like it and he swapped bell housing so that the serial numbers seemed original to us!!. turns out that what we thought was original final drive etc etc wasn't!!. So now i have two knackered gearboxes and nothing of use to me in either.[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >[img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >. To say i'm going mad is an understatement!!![img]http://www.ltregister.f9.co.uk/graphics/sad1.gif border|EQU| 0 align|EQU| absmiddle >.
So much for making it a short story.
Regards,
Paul.C aka ####ED OFF!

GSRed/ Paul C.
I live in South Dublin,,, actually more N.Wicklow. Bloody hell I am worried now,, I used to drive a Twincam RWD GT Coupe,,, unburstable,, gearbox same as any RWD Carina, Corola 1.6 etc 50 quid in a breakers...
Sold the cam and was going to get a Scooby,,, went to a mate in Dublin Docks,,, and saw the Lancer Evo 11 GSR,, wow I thought this looks excellent,,, I'll take that,,, however,, I have yet to pay VRT (dont think this is applicable to Uk) and the clutch is slipping.. (the car is in a mates garage,, has to be because i have not paid the duty),,, I am up to my tonsils in work and have yet to have a really good look at the clutch problem,,, my mate thinks the peddel is not returning fully,, so will look into that,,,

Paul,, love to have a chat,,, 087 8374771 after 7,,
best of luck with the gearbox...

Steve

GSRed,

I'm gutted for you. Wish I could help but have nothing to offer except sympathy. Its sounds like a nightmare.
I'll keep an eye open though - So what you are after is an original 92 GSR (non-Evo) gearbox I presume?

cheers
Jon
p.s. How did you find the Manchester box?
