Thermostat?

The Chevette rack uses a slightly longer input pinion shaft IIRC.

Thermostat?

Hi Dom Yes I have One on the shelf just now. There are 3 different types/shapes, but they all should fit. The one I have is from My SST, so should be the same on yours. I normally rebuild customers Own racks, but could do you 1 on exchange @ £150 delivered and you post me yours back when swapped?. M...

Thermostat?

there seems to be some slack in the steering when straight ahead Could be Wheel bearings, top or bottom ball joints or more than likely wear in the rack, it was in my case. :w I`ve had some really loose ones to rebuild that came from MOT`d cars, even one from abroad that was full of water georges r...

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...

Way too low

Length of shocker is irrelevant when on the car for ride height. :!:
UNLESS its TOO Short and the damping rod hit the inside of the shocker body. :w
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...
