Top quality mechanic

I had a right nightmare trying to remove an injector from a 1.6 td Mazda. In the end i ran the engine till nice and hot. Loosened the injector securing bolts snd turned the engine over. Injector popped right out. The tar around the injector kept it from comming out and worse whrn cold

TRUNNION WEAR PLAY

I wonder if the measurement you took really matter when the upright will be secured at the top by a balljoint so the movement you are measuring will not be there at all when in use. If you grabbed hold of the upright when attached and pulled it in and out the movement would be much less. Should the ...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

20150630_183935xx.jpg the standard ones used on the outside are not thick enough to securely attach the damper. You end up with the bush pushed to the left or right. in the end the bush squashes against the inside of the suspension mount and wears away, the metal sleeve of the bush never really com...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

I would go with option 1 Buy new narrower bracketed shocks to utilise original spacer set-up. Maybe someone will give a few quid for the old ones for and earlier car. I'm very tempted to do the same... they are just not made to fit the later cars. I have lost many hours now faffing about with them a...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

yes the later cars had narrower bushed shocks. here is a monroe shock alongside the Spax from GW. 20150630_183835.jpg Se6a original Monroe are ~1" wide The Spax ones are ~1.25" wide. I'm not sure how it could work if you have washers inside at the top but not the bottom ? Maybe you have a manufactur...

6a Front Suspension - back to standard height?!

The spacers are essential. Putting the standard ones on the outside is a waste of time as they are thinner than the bracket. Some, including me have had thicker one made to fit outside but even these will have issues. They will eventually rotate in the lower/upper bracket and make the bolt hole u sh...

Springs... 2.5" 2.25" whats the difference
