  1. Hey guys does anyone know where I can get some valve stem seals from as I'm rebuild an engine from ground up thank in advance 😊
  2. So the key will not start the car but if I jump from battery to the solenoid wire it will start I'm debating whether to just run a new wire from the ignition switch see if that works any other ideas or help will be grateful .
  3. Humm not sure I check them regularly and no movement at all unless it's not gone completely yet I'll have a look thanks
  4. Hi guys me again lol Ive got a constant squeak coming from the left brake disc I've changed everything disc caliper sliders pads everything I've even removed the copper grease and cleaned everything up and it still comes back within 5 minutes of driving and getting the brakes hot the squeak goes away when I apply the brakes and comes back the second I lift my foot off the pedal I'm at a complete lose of what to try next any help guys thank you
  5. Legend @mk2 your the best always has the best advice I'll look into doing this asap rocky 😉
  6. Hey everyone I am in the need of information about changing the crankshaft oil seal as I'm leaking from behind the flywheel is it an easy fix or a ballache? Can the seal just pull out and replace without removing the whole unit or isn't that possible any help is much appreciated 😃
  7. It's weird how I've only touched that one thing and the whole car is vibrating more than a dildo lol
  8. Humm I'm sure mine is ok since they have been changed recently and the mount Is the only thing I've touched that can cause this can only try to fit the old one and see if it is because of a new part has been fitted
  9. So I just changed the rear gearbox mount that bolts to the subframe and now the whole car is vibrating when accelerating or rolling along any help with this would be much appreciated guys thank you.
  10. If its a universal one then it can be attached to the central console that runs inbetween the seats just have to screw it to the plastic bit i dont think anything else would fit without huge modification to the car link or post a photo could help more
  11. Hi guys Im in the need of torque specs for the six stretch bolts in the center of the flywheel i can't find them online any help would be appreciated Thank you
  12. Also did the sump seal and cleaned the oil pickup
  13. So i got my replacement ahw engine a few weeks ago. Finally got around to cleaning off all the oil and dirt from its past. Its done 96k miles and seems to have had the belt changed at some point as its all new looking. The wife @Rgillett is currently in the process of painting it so its nice and clean ready for its new home. Ill post on this when i get more pics and updates.
  14. As stated before have a look around might find something better they are so easy to fix parts are cheap and easy to find on the web. service kits are best to get soon as you do decided to buy can find them under 100 pound in my experience no need for top notch tools to service a cheap halfords set would be suitable
