Re: Silverdale on countryfile

You just come down the rough track on to the site and you just relax, there's nowhere I like better.
Good times.😎

Re: 1996 2.5td 4x4 - Restoration Project

Without going all the way through the thread to check as you may have done this, check the diaphragm in the top of the fuel pump, it's connected via a 10 mm vac pipe from the inlet manifold elbow. Check the vac is there and the pipe is good and that the diaphragm is good, and that the internals are ...

Re: Hatch thing

I used a small section box into the cut ends, then over layed a c section just to strengthen it when you sit on the edge, or climb in on you knees, point load and all that scientific stuff. Or just Fred dibnah over engineered.

Re: Oil leak - passenger side front

He will check the condition of the crankshaft pulley while he's doing the seal, they are a rubber bonded hobby that are known to fall apart.
Then you may fall apart when you price them up.😜
