Fuel hose

If you can show me a piece of Cohline supplied by me that has degraded due to any fuel, I will replace it no matter how old. It is fit and forget. I wouldn't fit and forget Cohline fuel hose. I recently changed mine after 2 years due to slight hairline cracks in the outer rubber. I didn't buy it fr...

V8 engine swops

Rover V8 has more torque and low end grunt, and with a Holley carb and exhaust swap the V8 can soon be pushing nearer 200 BHP too. The V8 is lighter than the V6 too, so will only improve handling. Have a read up up on Rover 3.5 V8 tuning via the interweb to see what can be achieved, as there is a bi...

Too Much Work

They can be stripped down to individu...

I've got a bit left over!

Keep it in the boot or glove box and drive around with it there for a few years to see if you ever need it, then you can throw it away.

Gathering Info.

Don't ask for anything in Halfords apart from the time, as the staff won't know. Know your specs then read the labels. Use the old style 'Ethylene Glycol' Coolant, (its the blue stuff). If it doesn't say whats in it on the front of the bottle, read the blurb on the back and look for the content bein...

SPAX or AVO or Gaz or Protech?

Avo's are junk, don't touch them. My used ones failed with fluid leaks so I purchased new ones, then the bushes soon failed on those so I sent them back to have new bushes fitted, to then have one suffer a bad fluid leak due to a seal failure soon after. I removed them and fitted some Gaz units, whi...
