The other comment made during the emissions test and noted on the paperwork is - Engine Oil temperature check: “coolant pipes were hot.” Any suggestions or thoug...

My Se6a so far....

Hydocarbons are a measure of unburnt fuel. At excessive lean, like 0.2, lots of fuel is being thrown out, unburnt. Get the CO somewhere near right, 2.5 - 3.5 and it burns better. Therefore the hydocarbons reduce. It is a myth that you need as weak a mixture as possible. Just looked at the read outs...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

Jim and Steve The gauge etc. appears fine. Earthed one connection - blue low level lamp lit up. Earthed the other connection and gauge gave full reading. The guy mentioned that one connection on the tank sender unit doesn’t appear to have a good tag/connection. He thinks that this connection has had...

Bloody good glue if it can bond 0.08 mm to 0.08 mm as good as welding, which is a "Mechanical" joint rather than a "Bonded" joint :?
0.08mm hmmm 3 thousand of an inch that is thin. So just as thick as cigarette paper?

If joining alloy is a problem then why not use a structural adhesive that is cured with heat , as we do at work and the aircraft industry
What is this interesting product called?
Could possibly be useful for work.

So possibly start with low a mileage (less than 50000) full service history plus check MOT history etc?
Or a much greater and thorough detailed check?

POWER STEERING

Ron your rack refurb will go ahead, just been very busy with personal stuff. I have enough components for Five Complete rebuilds, or possibly Ten partial, all depends upon what the rack requires to bring it up to standard. I have a lot of stock invested in these rebuilds and I can`t keep paying ful...

POWER STEERING

Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control, due to the closure of the UK`s largest parts supplier, I will not be reconditioning PAS racks in the future. I have tried to stock up on the parts that are needed but the supply has now ceased. :cry: Unless I can find another source of the consu...

Castrol GTX

Hi Dennis I’ve tried tonight to locate the website and find options for purchase. However, I appear to be going around in circles. Checked out eBay and end up with probiotic tablets. Are you saying I order it and have it delivered to me or alternatively you order it and send it on. Also I’m surprise...

I have two old cars so double the quantity, and assuming I buy enough for 3 years, that's six lots. How do you raise sufficient interest to make a bulk purchase, but then t...
