185's, I kinda like them, this is how the van came but I'll probably be putting 16s on with 205/65 next.

What's worth having from an LT31

A guy down the road is sending his to the scrappy, I've got the mirrors, anything else worth having that'll bolt on to a T25?

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

Sorry, excuse my ignorance. I mean the back of the engine.

This is taken from below, does this help? Hadn't noticed there is a nut type thing on it, could the coolant be coming from there?

New problem! coolant leak, out of the back of the block where the pipe meets the block, is there a gasket that might have perished?

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

Cheers both, looking forward to seeing if we can sort it out. Pschonaut I completely understand, I just thought on the off chance, I'd happily bring it across the bridge to you, would have to be a weekend though. I'll give you a buzz tomorrow when I've introduced the idea to my good lady. I've done ...

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

All this talk of flange and wrong wiring has cheered me up no end, thank you! The whine/whistle/squeek only happens when I engage the clutch whilst decelerating. I'm also not sure if I trust that the spigot bearing is in place, is there any way to check without removing the engine? Could I clarify, ...

Reply from the guy that swapped it: Hi. I used the 1y oil pump. Try new oil sensors . I believe there are 2. One on the back of the head and one on the oil filter housing . They are less than a fiver each . Make sure you get the same colours as the ones fitted ! Spiggot bearing was in there . Sounds...

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

Thank you for all the replies and advice. As promised here are some snaps of the beast. Any idea where that spade connector in the second picture should go?! Sorry the first pic is a bit blurry, only just noticed and it's too dark to get another just now. Anything else specific you need to see let m...

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

£700 but I was in a bit of a tight spot, he collected the truck, provided the engine and threw in some extras. I had quotes from £5k to £1300 for it to be done by a garage so it seemed like a good option at the time. I'm on minimum wage and this is my daily and work truck so I couldn't really um and...

Re: JX to 1Y teething prolems - clutch whistle? buzzer etc!

Thanks Weldore, I'll get some pictures up tomorrow. Yep I've asked the mechanic just waiting to hear back, it was a bit of a strange arrangement though - basically he did the swap in exchange for another pick-up I had, and I'm not 100% that I can trust what he says, live and learrn eh. Yes, it was t...
