Will's GTC disasters

Like you, I have a 100% failure rate using grease to remove the bearing but bread is a new one on me!

Last time I needed to remove one I think I used a rawlbolt.

Should i burn in hell?

Is “Diesel Jim” still smoking around Scotland in his Granada 2.5-powered 6a?

A 4-pot diesel just kills the Scimitar image IMHO - if you drop a 5 or 6-pot in there though, at least it’ll sound like it should be there.

Jacking points

If you see the thickness of the tube, then if that collapses you’ve got bigger problems to worry about...

Fuel line

Make sure they’re fuel line clips, not normal jubilee clips.

I’ve got a feeling it’s all 8mm? If using AJL’s Cohline then I think you need 12-14mm clips which I’m sure he sells as well?

I suspect 1m will do a full car, but as a Steve says, Andy will know for sure.

Sill body mount issues.

Not sure when it changed then - #83 only had one bolt and I think only one hole. Over to scimjim and see if he can see what #1 has..but that won’t be easy as it doesn’t have easily removable panels in the footwell!

Alternator Not Charging

As Roger says - if testing with a digital meter you should read virtually 0V (to earth) on that smaller wire when connected to the alternator, ignition on. If you unplug is (ignition still on), the wire in the plug should have 12V. Question is which one is missing..

Fuel pump/ lack of fuel

Assume nothing - but assuming there’s fuel in there, one will be straight into the tank at the top and the other should blow bubbles. I wouldn’t recommend sucking on it yourself, but fuel should come out of one of them and not the other..

Middlebridge gear lever

I tended to find to get first when the oil was cold, I had to select 2nd, then back to first and I think that had the wrong oil.

Petrol hose ( again )

I think the short answer is if it’s got white writing printed on the outside just like yours (and some stuff I pulled off the Sabre at the weekend), it isn’t sufficiently good quality whichever way you look at it.

V6 essex timing gear

Not many modern (<30 years old) engines are non-interference - your MR2 is the exception rather than the rule, Nick.
