GTC 404 MOT Emissions

Will`s Middlebridge # 42 failed the emissions test first time, even though its a 2.9 Injection engine. :( After debating weather to take it for a thrashing to clear the carbon out of the exhaust the tester told me to just turn the engine OFF and let it cool down a bit as the fan was cycling on and o...

I had new, standard springs from QRG fitted last year

Way too low

Length of shocker is irrelevant when on the car for ride height. :!:

Which is unlikely :?

top water hose

I noticed that Will`s has damages on his top hose on #42 but it has been moved and reset away from the alternator. :( My mate at the farm saw it and told me a lot of tractors use this type of Gates hose because its cheaper than getting the correct moulded type of hose. I would have thought that part...

Essex head gasket failed?

Have you done a compression test? I think Roger is referring to a Cooling System pressure test, otherwise known as a Rad Leak tester. I have one and it`s a Sykes Pickavant kit with various clamps to replace the Rad Cap on different cars. You can either let the engine run and watch the guage, or pum...

Essex head gasket failed?

As Jim points out the SE6 system does NOT have a valve for the heater, so is irrelevant. :idea: Do you keep the overflow bottle half full when topping up at the Rad Cap?. :?: Hot/Warm water that is pushed into the overflow bottle WILL evaporate and then not enough will be sucked back into the engine...

Column multi switch and window switches

Good God :cry: £40 per switch, and they are copies, not OE.

I just sold my last lot of refurbished ones for £5 each, I`m 9i55ed off now. :doh:

Too Much Work

On my SST the indicator unit is fastened to the bottom part of the switch binacle, on a few occasions the connector plug has been loose and not fully connected so I got an intermittent flasher.
