Re: Aaz cooling system

just the pipe from the coolant tank cap goes to the header tank behind the number plate.
looks to me like you don't need to change the flange on the cylinder head, just blank off the small pipe by sticking a suitably sized bolt in it and hold it in there with a hose clip.

t25 friendly garage nr chudleigh, devon

Hi All

My ex is on hols in Devod and her 2.1DJ has sprung a water leak. Anyone know at T25 friendly garage in those parts? or an old school honest place?
Sounds like the external plumbing rather than barrels/head.

thanks

Re: Leaking water gasket & top end rebuild how to

What grit wet and dry for sealing faces? I have everything up to 2000 knocking about. I read a Laurie Petit post a few days bac...

Re: smoke pouring out from air vents

the s bolts are shear bolts i.e. the head shears off them when they are tightened up so they can't be undone (security feature). They are nicely shaped so you can get a drill in them and drill the heads off, then later you can unscrew the thread by hand. I just replaced with normal bolts when refitt...
