IanCP Posted 8, January 2016 Report Share Posted 8, January 2016 Hello all,Having got sick of blowing up Saab engines and scoured the internet for something different, I've picked up a 172 sport in the hope that it will prove an enjoyable track car. First signs are positive, driving home along some back roads reminded me what having fun in a car was all about. It's a fair few years since the R5 turbo I had in the UK, but that was an absolute joy, so here's hoping !!!The previous owner was a decent bloke who recommended that I join this forum. So I have... Apparently the cambelt was done 14k and 2 years ago, so my first decision is whether I should just replace that again to be on the safe side. I'm getting a fair bit of noise from the rear wheels which I understand may be bearings ? Also I am hoping to become a positive contributor to the community, with my first thing being to look around for advice / opinions on choice of rubber, best oil and anything else you can all think of, particularly if it relates to performance improvements.There is also a small leak which the previous owner thinks is possibly a seal on the transmission - unless anyone has a better idea !Thanks.
