  1. That plastic bit is the part that would allow your replacement fuel pump to work as some pumps have them,,and there's different thickness spacers also which is less than helpfull as there isn't really any pattern to fitment. It might be that e10 is giving the diaphragm a hard time so all these suggestions of a leccy pump might be worth a shot if so.
  2. When's the turbo getting fitted?, you might aswell now there's a oil filter port for the turbo oil feed waiting to be used, just watch out for damp patches on the road with those unequal length driveshafts 😄
  3. They all looked like angry generic build older men so might have been before my time living here. Hopefully it was one of these sorts ideally, but I think that's probably gone a while back unless somehow I've missed it!
  4. Aye thats my house , a crap car landmark haha, BB autos are still there but they're one of the more humourless outfits these days!
  5. 95k miles and 11years ownership, it's been quite the car to let go of but needs must!
  6. Almost a retroreflective quality to the tipex repair,,Safety flaps
  7. I also get those moments where clarity fleetingly arrives to foresee the sheer oxymoronic nature of the '5min' car task which only reveals its true 2hr53min length after the car is immobilised with the raggy wood chiselled remains of an oil filter stuck to the block like 'Fram 5304h by michealangelo' and the only thin wall socket for the T belt tensioner cracked and flapping like a leach upon your toolbox space.
  8. Not ebay but seems a bargain either way on Facebook marketplace, 5.0!
  9. The redblock requires a 360 torque tube and gearbox as the Renault units use the open alloy tube and bonded rubber prop, its almost better to start with a 360 if going down a 2.3 turbo route! As an aside the fuel consumption of them all is poor really, my 1.4 was a total waste of time, 69bhp and 30mpg and the 2.0 stromberg B19A that @overrun had was a solid 20 odd mpg ,,it actually improved with a 2.3 lpt engine fitted!
  10. For me the litmus test is whether a car can come to a T junction and power out smoothly and urgently without bogging down and with potential need to instant downshift not being held up by reluctant controls causing jerky progress etc as usually you end up having to awkwardly stop as the car is too shit to avoid someone angrily tailgating you !
  11. I knocked one up for this using pre 98 grandad rights to avoid a type approved towbar,,it wasn't worth the 50quid saving given all the fabrication hassle! Either way 1000kg towing limit is handy enough!
  12. It's all about the St Marie's lighthouse triple brake tap,,classic!
  13. Look at the glass area going down on your suzuke machine, it's like a greenhouse of visibility!
