  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. Also did the sump seal and cleaned the oil pickup
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. Tell me about it. Just have the rear to do now but i wont even bother undoing the bleeder ill just buy new and not have any hassle then good to know that the car stops fast now after a number of tests at different speed (under 70mph)
  7. Its the little 2pin connection in this lock mechanism (top left)
  8. You'll have a micro switch that are easily broke ive done the same thing with mine it don't bother me i know if its shut or not might need to replace the switch.
  9. Everything is done now had to replace everything as it was all rusty and old looking dont think its every been touch since the day it was born is the brake fluid green from factory or does it turn that way after the 20 odd years of neglect? The bleed nips were buggered snaped the head off one and the other rounded out even tho i was using heat to free them but no joy so 200 pound later i got new everything and it stops perfect now
  10. Thanks for all the advice @LR5V from what i can see all the brake lines are sound no corrosion at all! Just the rubber hose that comes off is perished hope that it will go all to plan fingers crossed ill definitely give everything a good soak. I have new bleed nips for the front and my rear wheel cylinders are fairly new so now issue with them i hope. 😊
  11. Hi guys Im upgrading my original brake hose's since they are about to burst and have perished with age. I have a full set of Hel braided coming and need to know of any tips or advice of any problems to look out for since everything looks to br original never been undone ive pre soaked the bolts and connections on front and rear in hope that the job of undoing them will be easy. Thanks
  12. Any idea where I can get one or are they hard to find? Thanks guys
  13. Try unplugging the coolant sensor on the thermostat housing should be a blue square one or a green D shape sometimes they can tell the car to run funny like mine did i got a new one and the issue was fixed hope this helps
