water in sump

Not trying to teach how to suck eggs,etc, but it looks to me as though the inlet manifold gasket was foitted the wrong way. The smallest hole should be adjacent to N°1 cylinder, and the holes get progressively larger going back . Unless I've got my glasses on upside-down, it doesn't look like that i...

2 rod gearbox upgrade and removal

Reach the top bellhousing bolts from the top, the others from underneath. I found the job was easier with the exhaust manifolds unbolted from the engine,the radiator pipes taken off, also any water pipes which go from the engine tothe heater; Also disconnect the speedometer drive and the earthing br...

Stone the crows.....

The A6 has been closed and the speed limit has been reduced. The Highways Agency found over 50 dead crows on the A6 a week ago, and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. A pathologist examined the remains of all the crows and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was NOT A...

Se6 brake booster

Talking about the cooling system - the radiator in your picture is not for a 6 or 6a. It could be from a 5 or 5a. The 6 series only have one connection at the top, and one at the bottom, on the other side.

What does everybody do for lunch? I assume there will be at least a hamburger stall, or a food truck?

Refitting a 6a Gearbox

I don't think you can remove or refit a 6A box without the the bellhousing attached . I have done mine twice, I used a couple of c/h bolts off a Mini as long studs to help pull it into place. The angle is critical, I used two trolley-jacks like a little train; that gadget Mike T has found should be ...
