Re: Engine swap

The bongo and ford fitments couldn't be any further away from each other, bell housing on a bongo box is huge compared to the Ford gearbox. As a trial fit I will be dragging the spare diesel out of the donor bongo and have a hybrid 2.3 dohc and MT75 4x4 running gear to play with, if that fits then t...

Re: Body kits

Oh if only you could play in a scrap yard for the day, sure to find something. I do know that the sierra cosworth body kit doesn't fit... Nowhere near wide enough :lol:

Triangle Park - Barry

Spotted another rusty old bus bombing down the hill yesterday, I was coming up hill and had priority (enough width for one vehicle) but they still came belting down regardless of my classic car at the bottom, didn't even acknowledge or look or say sorry, so damn rude... Don't come to me for spares y...

Re: Centre console switch panel

Very interested in the hardware and software you're using to scan and plot that, very interesting to see how technology has moved on, especially as I was one of the two who built the first idustrial portable scanner/cutter (on display in Exeter uni in glass cabinet next to modern day plastic printer...

Re: Fuel pump seal

Options, either send the pump off for a rebuild to a specialist or buy the two green seals and fit them yourself, seems to be a common issue with these

Re: Virus Malware Be aware

@Eratosthenes, alarming is an understatement, the mrs and kids have been in and witnessed most conversations, I've spent years designing and programmed my own defences which works damn well, now all i do is sit back and watch data patterns (friend's say it looks like matrix screens).

Shocking news, in that case they have been rooted and everyone's details have already been stolen and will be sold on, ian, maybe a good idea to remove the advert that links to them (404 by the way) Internet security isn't just installing an anti virus, it's a way of life, I've had a UK based large ...

Re: vacuum or fuel

Re: vacuum or fuel

I wonder... Have you replaced the fuel pump seals? This fault is starting to sound very similar to that of the pajero common fault, failing seals in the pump allow air to leak into the fuel system thus it drains back to the tank, the pump is also lubricated by fuel so leaving the key on to pull up f...

Re: Big end shells

What has made this necessary After I purchased all the bits to rebuild our engine (head kit from club) and set about doing so, I found our no.4 cylinder had a huge 4" C shape crack in the wall :shock: lucky I found it before fitting a new head to it, so we sourced a replacement short end from Jamie...
