Bumper Rubbers

New ones are available from GW but i recall the price was quite high. Somewhere in the region of £200 i think. But good if you dont have time to spend sanding i guess.

Inlet manifold glue expanding and blocking coolant holes

I found the bottle that the coolant came in and it clearly stated that it is OAT coolant. No doubt about it then...
Lesson learned :oops:

Inlet manifold glue expanding and blocking coolant holes

Has anyone seen anything like this before. An inlet manifold i fitted in 2016 has blocked coolant holes because the glue holding the copper plates on has reacted with coolant/water and expanded. It has turned into a squishy rubbery like substance. 20190824_152148.jpg 20190824_152154.jpg 20190824_152...

Skimming the inlet manifold.

Do you think sealant could cause the leak? I see this comment in another thread that relates to the cologne engine.

DAMPER POWER/MANUAL STEERING

Maybe save it as a jpeg or other image format. I dont think placing a .pdf inline is possible. It could contain several pages.

Skimming the inlet manifold.

Hi folks. It has taken me a while to find the source of my rough idle. Spraying some gas under the thermostat housing causes a change of engine note and will make it cut out if i spray enough. So it seems when i did the head/inlet manifold gasket a while back it did not seal correctly. I was very ca...

6a lower wishbones - what have I done wrong!?

I noticed when i placed a good wishbone arm on a bench with the eyes facing upwards that it would rock back and forth about 5mm on one of the casting nubs. The bent ones I had did not rock. It seems a bit late to compare now that you have one side done but its a good test to try. I assembled the tru...

38DGAS carb inlet pinning

I found a similar problem with a fuel pump too so well worth pinning them while you are at it. I guess the fuel pump is not as bad as it will just spill down the front and not pool on the top of the inlet manifold. I used jbweld and a good tap of a hammer to fix it in place.
