Re: Brakes

lots of bongo's have what seems to be extra travel before they bite, compared to normal cars, its not uncommon,if your concerned take it to an mot station and get them to test the braking power.

IIRC test procedure is start car with set bu...

Re: Leak from Oil Cooler Feed (V6) - I'm guessing....

When you say simple fix - Is it just reseat the pipe or is it a replace the pipe job? I don't think that the pipe has a split but I'm slightly concerned that the pipe might just have lost some flex... its usually just reseating the pipe and maybe putting a jubilee clip on it, sometimes the pipes be...

Re: Diesel Pump leak

depends on the leak, there are 3 seals that fail in the pump, 2 on the sides (inside is awkward) and rear, if its side seals they can be done in situ, if its the rear, its best to get it out, even then its a mare of a job.

Re: injector seats !!!

Do you mean the 'top hat' or the little ridged washer that goes between the top hat and the injector? either way both are required, so yes they need to be replaced, new heads usually come with them in the bag of bits??
