STAGE 35 – ASSEMBLING THE RIGHT RADIATOR

PICTURE 31

The Parts Supplied this time are:

Right Radiator A
Right Radiator B
Right Radiator C
Radiator Hose A
Radiator Fan Guard
Radiator Fan
M2 x 5mm Countersunk screws x 4

PICTURES 32 & 33

First stage in this part of the build is to place the radiator fan onto the radiator.

PICTURE 34

We then press fit the radiator fan cover over the fan. This is then secured from behind using a M2 x 5mm screw.

PICTURE 35

We then fit Radiator part B into Radiator part A. This assembly is then secured using 2 M2 x 5mm screws.

PICTURES 36 & 37

We now take Radiator part C and press fit it into the previously assembled Radiator unit.

This, along with any unused parts are then stored away until called for in a later part of the build.

STAGE 36 – ASSEMBLING THE LEFT FRONT HUB

PICTURE 38

In this section we receive the following parts:

Left Front Hub
Brake Disc
Front Wheel Shaft
M2.6 x 3mm washer screws x 3
Brake Duct Connector
Front Brake Duct Hose

PICTURES 39 & 40

We take the left pivot arm and fit this over the peg on the front left hub. The 2 parts are secured using one of the m2.6mm x 3mm screws.

We are reminded in this stage to be careful with the LAMBOURGINI decal on the brake calliper as its possible to scrape this delicate decal.

PICTURES 41, 42 & 43

We take the brake duct connector and fit the longer section into the brake hose.

The other end of the brake duct is then press fitted onto the tab on the brake hub.

This stage would also have us adding the brake disc to one of the previously assembled wheels and taping this in place but for now I am leaving mine packed away for use at a later stage.

STAGE 37 – ASSEMBLING THE RIGHT FRONT HUB

In this stage we receive the following parts:

Right Front Hub
Brake Disc
Front Wheel Shaft
Brake Duct Connector
Front Brake Duct Hose

PICTURES 44 & 45

Very similar to stage 36 but working on the right-hand section rather than the left so no real reason to go over what in effect is an exact build stage again.

And that completes all of my outstanding packs and brings me back up to date with the build.

As mentioned at the start of this article I had some “nerves” over some of the build stages but on reflection the issues were my own mind convincing me they would be difficult stages rather than them being difficult in their own right.

PACK 12 - LAMBORGHINI COUNTACH LP 500S – 04th January 2020

Well this pack caused some major confusion. The parts look very straightforward and simple to put together but when I made a start, I found major differences between the parts supplied and the part pictures in the build instructions.

In the end I resorted to building this Pack using the official build diary as that.

From what I could see neither the build instructions supplied in Pack 12 or the official build mentioned the differences with the supplied parts.

From what I can see it does appear it’s the printed assembly instructions that are incorrect.


STAGE 38 – ASSEMBLING THE LEFT REAR HUB

PICTURE 1

The parts included this time are

Left Rear Hub
Brake Disc
Rear Wheel Shaft
Rear Upper Arm
Left Rear Brake Duct Connector
Rear Brake Duct Hose
M2.6 x 12mm screws x 5
M2.6 x 8mm screws x 9
M2 x 4mm screws x 7

PICTURES 2, 3 & 4

Using one of the M2.6 x 8mm screws we pass that through one of the holes in the Rear Upper Arm.

We then screw this into place on the side of the Rear Left Hub, and its at that point my confusion started.

PICTURES 5 & 6

Picture 5 is from the build instructions and it clearly shows the brake calliper on the hub being on the right side of the hub.

Picture 6 is the part I was supplied in the correct orientation as the previous picture and you can see the calliper is on the left side. And this matches the part in the official build.

PICTURES 7, 8, 9 & 10

Pictures & & 9 show the printed instructions and 2 issues. First being the calliper location but also the spacing of the 2 holes that the Left Rear Brake Duct Connector will be fixed into.

In the build instructions these 2 holes are shown as diagonal to each other. In pictures 8 & 10 you can see the supplied parts have these next to each other (which matches exactly the pins on the Connector.

PICTURE 11

So, following now the official build the Left Rear Brake Duct Connector is screwed into place using one of the M2 x 4mm screws. We then press fit the Rear Brake Duct into place.

STAGE 39 – ADDING THE LOWER WISHBONE TO THE LEFT REAR HUB

PICTURE 12

The parts included this time are

Left Drive Shaft
Left Lower Suspension Arm
Rear Wishbone Bracket

PICTURES 13 & 14

The printed instructions are still incorrect with Picture 13 showing the brake calliper on the right and having orientated my part correct (Picture 14) the calliper is on the left.

PICTURE 15

Following along from the official build we screw the Left Drive Shaft to the Rear Hub using 2 x M2 x 4mm screws.

PICTURE 16

We then fix one side of the Left Rear Lower Wishbone into place using one of the M2.6 x 8mm screws.

PICTURE 17

The other side of the Left Rear Lower Wishbone has the Wishbone Bracket screwed onto it using on of the longer M2.6 x 12 mm screws.

When all of these [arts are in place its important to ensure you have not overtightened the screws and have left enough slack so the parts can move.

PICTURES 18 through 21

And just to round off this section again a couple of the build instruction pictures plus my assembled parts showing how the brake calliper is incorrect in the build instruction pictures.

STAGE 40 – ASSEMBLING THE RIGHT REAR HUB

PICTURE 22

The parts included this time are

Right Rear Hub
Right Rear Brake Duct Connector
Brake Disc
Rear Upper Arm
Rear Wheel Shaft
Rear Brake Duct Hose

PICTURES 23 & 24

Again, we have a mismatch between the supplied Rear Hub in terms of the calliper placement and that shown in the printed build instructions.

PICTURES 25 & 26

This shows the parts as per the official online build and the part I have been working with. They both match exactly.

All we need to do here is screw the Rear Upper Arm as we did in the previous stage.

PICTURES 27 & 28

Again (Picture 27) the printed instructions have the holes shown for the Right Rear Brake Duct Connector on the diagonal when in fact the part supplied has these 2 holes on a different orientation.

PICTURE 29

Again, just a case of screwing the Right Rear Brake Duct Connector into place and then press fitting the Rear Brake Duct Hose into place.

These parts are then stored away until required again in some future part of the build.
