  1. The 2.3/2.6 straight six engines where prone to camshaft seizures due to a poor oil feed while the 2.0/2.5 triumph straight six was prone to thrust washers falling out of main bearing mounts & fuel injection pumps failing on the 2.5pi version so it was six of one & half doz of the other.
  2. If we're talking about the GM diesel V8 of the late 70's then that was based on the 350ci (5.7) cast iron engine not the early 60's 215 ci (3.5) aluminium engine . Most of the problems where due to the block not being able to cope with the far higher compression ratio required by a diesel.
  3. Once they became BL in the 70's is when the rot should've been sorted as has been debated time & again. Let's get back on topic. In gaydon there's an ohc A series it's this sorta thing we need here.

  9. The Celeste will probably be a Chrysler/Plymouth/dodge I think it was sold as the charger in America.
  10. Doubt it only made as 1.3/1.6 & 2.0, Mk5 was only available as GL & Ghia with the 2.3 V6.
  11. Some more utilitarian ones where made I believe.
  12. These are the one MK4 that fetches good money only just in double figures survive the 2.3 S (sport) is in low single figures.
