PayPal and deposits

Try phoning him and talking about it. Its his money, he can't claim it back through Paypal though, either keep his money and wait for him to collect the engine or refund him his money and sell it again elsewhere.

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...

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).
